    Nina Arianda. The Tony Award-winning actress and singer has just signed on to play Janis Joplin in a film by the director of “Marcy Martha May Marlene.” Arianda will also provide the singing for the film. She beats out other contenders like Zooey Deschanel, Pink, and Amy Adams.

    I think this should have gone to Amy Adams, but we will have to see.

    Brilliant casting. Arianda is one of the greatest young unknown talents right now, her Tony for Venus in Fur (which I did see back when it opened) was extremely well deserved. I’m glad it’s opening doors for her.

    ^
    My hunch is that she’ll wow as Janis; the kind of role, and with the right perf, could get her a nomination.

    Nina Arianda is a BRILLIANT actress.  Exciting, extremely likable, and unique.  She’s going to be great as Janis.

    Nina Arianda became a Broadway celebrity overnight practically and she deserves it! I am so happy that she is getting to tackle a high-profile role like this.

    When I first read “Janis Jolin will be played by” (there’s a typo in the title) my immediate thought was Jane Krakowski (Jackie Jormp-Jomp anybody?) but I am elated that Arianda got the role.

    IF it ever gets to the screen that is. A project about Janis Joplin seems to come around so very often (and never makes the screen) that I’m very skeptical when I hear stuff like this.

    Remember when Renee Zellweger was going to play her? That never happened. Pink’s project never happened.  We’ll see.

    I thought Amy Adams had had this role sewn up for the longest time. I guess she’s destined to win Oscar for supporting actress. Oh wait, she still has a promising leading role in Trouble with the Curve this year.

    Exciting and unconventional casting choice. Best of luck to her!

    That was my first thought too! Hopefully Nina Arianda won’t be researching her character by wikipedia! Congratulations to Arianda she beat out some tough competition!

    Good: The casting based on talent (apparently) and not box office draws

    Bad: It’s possible that it won’t happen. Just ask Renee Zellweger, Pink and Amy Adams…

    Well, I hope she doesn’t break a nail or muss her hair…

    Seriously, portraying Janis Joplin is one role you just can’t fake or phone in.

    I third this one. Jackie Jormp-Jomp. Gnihihihi

    Never heard of that Nina girl, but after watching her Tony acceptance speech and some scenes with her and Hugh Dancy, I would really be looking forward to this, if it actually happens.
