Following her vocal turn in box office hit The Lorax, could be stepping into some mighty big shoes for the silver screen — those of rock legend Joni Mitchell. The “Mean” songstress is reported to be circling the role in an adaptation of Sheila Weller’s book Girls Like Us, which examines the careers of Mitchell and her iconic peers Carly Simon and Carole King. Unfortunately, most musical fans felt like they’d been plowed over by a big yellow taxi when word got out a few months back that Taylor was rumored to be up for the part of Eponine in yet another Les Miserables flick. (British actress Samantha Barks eventually got the part.) Do you think playing Joni Mitchell is a more suitable role for the award-winning singer? [Via Variety]
