Good for her!
She's not going to win an Oscar for it (they don't give Oscars to TV movies, duh!), but we can't wait to see Jewel's portrayal of June Carter Cash in Lifetime's latest biopic.
Unlike Walk The Line, the film which led to Reese Witherspoon's first Academy Award, The June Carter Cash Story is all about June!
It's based off of her son's memoir, Anchored In Love: An Intimate Portrait Of June Carter Cash and follows the country star from her childhood in the rural mountains of Virginia, all the way up to her marriage with Johnny Cash.
And if you're scratching your head and wondering when Jewel started acting, the answer is…right now. Although she's had a few small roles, this will be her first major acting job and we wish her the best of luck with it!
