On the show this morning, I tols Jon He was right about something. What was he right about???  Taylor Swift‘s rapidly moving movie career. She recently played the voice of Audrey in ‘The Lorax,’ made an appearance in 2010′s ‘Valentine’s Day’ and also almost snagged a part as Eponine in the new film adaptation to ‘Les Miserables.’ Now, it seems the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year might land a spot as another guitar-wielding superstar: Joni Mitchell.

According to Variety, Taylor hasn’t officially locked in the role, but the talk has been fluttering around for a while now.  The film, ‘Girls Like Us,’ is based on the Shelia Weller book Girls Like Us: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon — and the Journey of a Generation.

The film will follow the lives of the three legendary singers. Filming is slated to begin later this year.

“When I look at acting careers that I really admire, I see that it’s been a precise decision-making process for these people,” she says. “They make decisions based on what they love and they do only the things that they are passionate about. They play only characters that they can’t stop thinking about.”

Fans may not be aware of the fact that Taylor actually got her start in acting and NOT in music. “When I was growing up in Pennsylvania, auditioning for Broadway was my dream. I went to several auditions in New York. I was always going there for vocal and acting lessons … and for auditions, where you stand in line in a long hallway with a lot of people. (I’ve always been freakishly tall, like a giant.) After a few years of auditioning in New York and not getting anything, I started writing songs.”

I’ll keep you posted!!! :-)
