Dolly Parton Appendix

Further to all of my talk about movie stars getting cast as music stars just the other day, here's the gossip on who is being lined up to play Dolly Parton - according to Starpulse, anyways.

Of course, it's Kristin Chenoweth. No surprises there, really, that's just about perfect. I certainly can't think of anybody better and I'm glad that nobody is suggesting Renee Zellweger for the role. On the other hand, though, do we really need a Dolly Parton biopic? (Or a Debbie Harry one or a Stevie Nicks one or that dang Janis Joplin one...?)

Totally unfamiliar with this artiste, but I'll admit I just did a Google Images search to make sure she has the rack for the role.

you KNOW we need a Janis Joplin one, if only that a certain young actress gets the necessary exposure and (hopefully) oscar.

But why a Janis Joplin biopic? If I did one, I'd make it like The Royle family but in the various green rooms (or way-back-when equivalents) at the venues of gigs. I doubt Spheeris is thinking this way.
