I also read today that a movie is coming out about Janis Joplin, entitled The Gospel According to Janis. Check it out on imdb. They have Zooey Deschanel lined up to play Janis. Zooey was Will Ferrell's love interest in Elf.
Is this a good choice or a bad choice? Right now I'm not the happiest, but I don't know who else I'd rather play Janis. I guess I'll have to wait and see how she portrays Janis. The Biography channel created an excellent documentary of Janis' life. I hope this movie owns up to it.
So, who do you think would play the best Janis Joplin?
