Amy Adams is Janis Joplin? That's generous

No one tell 30 Rock's Jenna Malone, the Janis Joplin biopic is real, and has just found its leading lady.

Producer Wyck Godfrey was talking Twilight with Fearnet, and casually let it slip that Amy Adams would be playing Janis Joplin in Fernando Meirelles’ (CITY OF GOD) biopic of the singer. Deadline confirms the casting info, and notes that many have tried and failed to get a Janis Joplin biopic made, and it’s still early to tell that despite a solid director and star, if this one will actually pull through.

And as for the uh, physical similarities between the actress and the legend? I think we can all safely say, “what physical similarities?” Adams can sing (but sing like Joplin?), but certainly doesn’t look the part as of yet. Presumably they’d have to do some sort of Charlize Theron MONSTER makeover on her, and if this gets made and is a success, I would predict a possible Oscar for the young actress at last as they really do love that kind of shit.

No one has a bigger crush on Adams than me, and I think she’s got talent, but this would likely be a role that would push her to her limit, as it would seem to be way outside her comfort zone.

What do you guys make of this?

Extra Tidbit: Eh just put Joplin's trademark gynormous tinted glasses on her and no one will be able to tell the difference.
