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.


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!
