Henry VIII is getting a fourth wife, and this time she is a British R&B singer.

Joss Stone will be joining Showtime's racy royal drama, The Tudors, playing Anne of Cleves. According to the Reporter, Stone's character is the daughter of a German nobleman, and was betrothed to Henry through a marriage treaty after he laid eyes on her portrait. Upon Anne's arrival in England, however, Henry is less than thrilled because his new wifey's appearance isn't as expected.

Season 3 will also follow the king's marriage to his third queen, Jane Seymour (played by Anita Briem, not Jane Seymour), prior to tying the knot with Anne of Cleves.

This marks the first major acting role for Stone, who had a part in the 2006 fantasy Eragon. - Gina DiNunno
