Taylor Swift In Talks To Play Joni Mitchell!

Taylor Swift Joni Mitchell

Taylor Swift…pop country superstar and…folk singer?

Looks like Taylor may be hopping in a Big Yellow Taxi, headed for the silver screen!

Reportedly, Swifty is eyeing up the role of Joni Mitchell in the film adaptation of the book, Girls Like Us by Sheila Weller!

Though Taylor has already gotten her feet wet appearing in the rom-com Valentine’s Day along with every other celeb back in 2010, this would be her FIRST time taking on a dramatic role!

Girls Like Us will feature a look inside the life and career of Joni Mitchell, along with fellow singers, Carly Simon and Carole King!!

No official offer is on the table yet for Taylor, but other actresses have already been auditioning to take up the roles of Simon and King.

The film, though not yet greenlit, is hoping to plan filming around the three leads’ schedules later this year.

Wow, this would definitely be something new for Taylor!!! We could definitely see her playing Joni!

U be the judge!

    In the one movie that I saw Taylor Swift in she was really bad. Some of the worst acting ever. But I think that a Joni Mitchell film would be a good fit for her.

    PERFECT CHOICE!!! She is much like Joni. Looks wise and the singer-songwriter thing.
    With some acting classes she can surprise everybody. Her only drama role (CSI) was not bad actually. I see potential.

    I think it's funny how actors spend years studying their craft in colleges/universities, doing summer stock, go on non-stop auditions, take every bit role they can find to get the experience they need to be rounded and successful in their profession, work with dialogue coaches, study life experiences and have a great deal of self-reflection & commitment, etc. And then models, singers or pretty much anyone who is recognizable to the public just lands a major movie role as if acting is nothing more than memorizing lines and repeating them. Professional actors seriously must just despise it when this happens.

    Re: Meggie246524 – I agree. And most of the time, the crossovers are just a plain insult. But on the other hand, while I don't care for Taylor Swift, she does resemble Joni. Maybe with some acting (and vocal) coaching, she can pull it off.

    Re: dodgyend – are you kidding?!?!? Joni Mitchell had a 3 octave range when she was younger. I agree Swift looks KIND of like Joni, but Taylor better not try and sing, or it'll be a disaster.

    The deep, soulful, intelligent Canadian, played by the shallow, vacuous, untalented and spoiled American. Let's celebrate!

    Joni Mitchell is spinning in her grave, or will be after committing suicide upon hearing about this…

    Wow! I think she'd be amazing!

    Congratulations, Taylor! You have blonde hair, bangs, and can sort of sing! You'll be the spitting image of Joni!

    Poor poor poor Joni. It's an insult to have that vapid 'my boyfriend don't love me anymore wahhhh' squawker portray her. There's gotta be someone out there far better than her.

    Can't wait !!!!!

    TERRIBLE idea!

    Re: Deja Vu – You took the words right out of my mouth!

    "this would be her FIRST time taking on a dramatic role" Yeah because her role in an episode of CSI was clearly a comedy LOL.
