– Taylor Swift will reportedly play Joni Mitchell in a movie.
SF Gate said today that Swift has signed on to play Mitchell in the adaptation of Sheila Weller's book "Girls Like Us." The book chronicles the lives of Mitchell, Carly Simon and Carole King. The story said, "Swift has been linked to the project for months." < AHREF=http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118059680.html?cmpid=RSS|News|LatestNewscom/mail/u/0/?tab=wm>Variety also said last Friday that Swift was "already in line" to play Mitchell.
Allison Pill ("Midnight in Paris") and Olivia Thirlby are said to be in talks to portray King, and SF Gate said, "insiders suggest "Girls" star Allison Williams and "Mad Men's" Jessica Pare are front runners to play "You're So Vain" singer Simon."
This would not be Swift's first foray into acting. Her feature acting debut was in the ensemble flick "Valentine's Day." She recently voiced a role in Universal's "The Lorax." In 2009, she appeared as herself in the Miley Cyrus film "Hannah Montana: The Movie."
