Guess Who's Going To Play Loretta Lynn?

It'll be in a stage version of Coal Miner's Daughter that's heading to Broadway (hopefully with a stop at Butcher Holler).

Loretta Lynn made the announcement herself, and she's thrilled about it, ka-ching, ka-ching.

Besides, it does happen to be an arguable choice:

Zooey Deschanel from The New Girl.

She's cute, she can sing, and she can holler.

What's more, she can sell tickets.

Yee-ha!

But eventually every movie we've ever seen will come back as a stage musical (especially if the movie is based on a book.)

And then they can make them into movies again!

It is an illness called GREED that makes Tinseltown trolls keep trying to remake movies that were terrific to begin with.

Zooey should do all of Sissy's roles: Carrie, In The Bedroom, The Help...

And she should cover Sissy's lost gem, "John, You've Gone Too Far This Time."

They can get married but they still can't reproduce, but they can probably combine their DNAs in an offspring or two. Zooey Spacek and Sissy Deschanel....

I guess if Reese Witherspoon could play June Carter Cash and even win an Oscar for it, why not this?
