I think by now we all know that Taylor Swift is filming an episode of CSI. We don’t have an exact date for the show’s airing, but CBS is saying “late February or early March”. I’m sure I’ll see it. I usually watch CSI every week. There are pictures popping up all over the internet of her in the brown wig, and different scenes from the upcoming show. So, I thought I’d share a few of those with you.
I don’t really think acting is something new for Taylor. Most of her music videos are really little tiny movies. I think she will do great with this, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see her doing more acting in the very near future. Maybe even some of that ‘big screen’ stuff.
I don’t think you have to be an actress to do acting. What I mean is, she’s cute, she can pull off most any role convincingly – but I don’t think she’s a ‘main character, Oscar nominated performance’ kind of actress. (But, there are probably people out there who would have said the same thing about Jennifer Hudson a few years ago).
Here’s what a CBS spokesperson had to say about the upcoming episode. “Swift will play Haley Jones, a teenage girl whose family runs a seedy Vegas motel. Over the course of a year, Haley goes through a series of changes that have tragic consequences." Oh no, ‘tragic consequences’ … I hope that doesn’t mean we’ll see her laid out on a slab in the autopsy room.
The report went on to say: Taylor’s role is not the sweet teen America has become accustomed to. Mendelsohn told the star, "I said, ‘it’s a very edgy part, this may not be what you want. But she said, ‘I love it, and I want to do it.’"
“Don’t expect Swift to be flaunting her long blonde curls. "This young girl will change physically, will change her hair," Mendelsohn said. "I mean, clearly, your outward manifestation reflects the turmoil that’s inside of you, and so it’s really a very challenging role."
That’s it for now. I’m now going to head over and answer some of your e-mail. Thanks for writing! It’s good to hear from each of you.
