    She’s a horrible actress……………not that much of a singer either but her songs are catchy

  • stan

    Yes! Get it, gurl!

  • jd

    Taylor is NOT an actress. Any film with her in it will have to stink.

  • stan

    jd- every film connected to her has been a huge box-office success. No wonder they are after her. Plus she looks like Joni (kinda) and they are both singer-songwriters. This could turn out to be very interesting. First big drama role. That will be the real judge of her acting chops. Her previous roles have been too simplistic/short to give a fair judgement.

    Oh good lord, this is about as bad as a few years ago when the rumors circled that maybe Britney Spears might be playing Janis Joplin. Talk about a slap in the face to Janis, and now a slap in the face to Joni.

    Maybe Jake can help her out??

    Jared, April Fools was 3 weeks ago. This news is like… a nightmare except it’s not. Please let it be a rumor!

  • Amanda

    Oh hell no. She better not play my Joni.

    The woman deserves so much better :(

    You’ve got to be kidding – Janis Joplin was a huge stoner – drugged up all the time and looked filthy. Britney is the one that would have done herself a dis-service playing that part.

    Taylor would be an asset in this film. So sick of thye negative jerks ragging on her. Lots of juealous people out there. Taylor was great in Valentines Day – she was supposed to be a “valleyt girl” and she played is great. Like Stan said – everything Taylor is attached to turns to gold.

  • Dave Franco

    Blah! Blah! Another publicity stunt for Swift and the movie. She WILL not get this role.

  • V

    @cam she was soooo bad in Valentines Day , I cringed every time she opened her mouth , an actress she is NOT….

  • ren

    @ace11: HAHAHA you made me LOL

    Taylor DOES have the look to play the legendary Canadian singer, Joni Mitchell AND she is a singer, so the main ingredients are there. At her tender age she’s not about to give an Oscar winning performance, so lets not be too hard on her acting skills. If she sings and looks the part, that’s great! She has my vote.

  • jennifer

    Taylor is perfect for this!!!!!!!!!!

  • Toni

    Way to ruin a potentially good movie. Joni Mitchell is an icon, a one of a kind singer and a VERY strong opinionated, even difficult person. She is not an ingenue chippy! Plus this girl cannot act. Hire an actress please! There are plenty that sing better then Swift anyway.

  • Creed

    Is this a joke? The fact that they would even CONSIDER to have her audition to against Alison Pill is a joke. She couldn’t even play herself in valentines day. That is such an insult to Joni Mitchell, she should be played only by a real actress, like (preferably) Alison Pill or Jennifer Lawrence

  • Creed

    Shut Up.

  • andreaacosta

    poooorfavorrrr nooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jonni mitchell JONI MITCHELL … taylor swift queee!! respeto sus canciones jodidas idiotas pero no mameess porfavorrr no mezclennn!!!!!!

  • alaia

    @Creed: @Creed: Alison Pill would be a great choice.

  • lisa

    Taylor would be great. I hope things work out and she gets the part.

  • justmeek

    Hell No! Where is Jennifer Lawrence & also the Olsen’s little sister they have the Grit & Talent a Actress would nerf to play these Iconic & Legendary Women…Taylor Swift no.I like her poppy country songs but that’s it.Hollywood cam be so disrespectful sometimes.

  • justmeek

    *need* *can*

  • Eva

    I can’t wait for this Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift collaboration, Taylor is my inspiration. Her voice is magic and I think they’ll blend and harmonize PERFECTLY. :)

  • Buzz

    Keep bring her down ppl, if she’s taking this role she will take it seriously! and she will go just fine!!

    you guys haters, always look at her in “negative” ways, but it’s alright, she keeps on proving herself that she is Great Artist

  • Buzz


    mmmm the one on Valentine’s Day lol you counted that? her role is supposed to be “ditzy” girl and stupid and all, she nailed it! and that was just like super short appearance and it’s comedy romantic movie not “serious” movie

  • Buzz


    Allison Pill not even auditioned for Joni Mitchell’s role, Gosh!
