Taylor Swift to Play Joni Mitchell in Biopic [VIDEO]
Taylor Swift the Right Choice to Play Joni Mitchell?
As if Taylor Swift's star could rise any higher or shine any brighter ... it's now been confirmed that she'll play Joni Mitchell in a new biopic.
Is she the right choice to embody the singer on the big screen though?
Both are singer/songwriters ... both are blonde.
Beyond that, it's difficult to believe that Swift has the acting chops to pull off a musical legend like Mitchell.
The movie will be based on the 2008 novel Girls Like Us, which connects the lives of Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King, looking at their careers and their impact on the music scene.
In other words, it doesn't sound like Swift will have to carry the weight of the movie since it's about more than just Mitchell's life.
As for the other roles, the buzz is that Alison Pill, Olivia Thirlby, Ari Graynor and Zoe Kazan are in the running to play King, while Allison Williams, Analeigh Tipton and Jessica Pare are being considered for Simon.
In a 2011 interview, author Sheila Weller said she thought Michelle Williams should play King, noting, "She has a gravity, a solemnity, which was an ineffable part of Carole's resonance and appeal."
Are you a big enough Swift fan to give the flick a shot once it comes out, or would you rather just keep her on your iPod?
