Taylor Swift found the Purrrfect acting gig!
Variety magazine reported that the pop singer, who famously is in love with her cats Dr. Meredith Grey and Det. Olivia Benson aka Dibbles, will appear alongside Dreamgirls' Oscar Winner Jennifer Hudson, James Cordon, Sir Ian McKellen, and a few others in the movie revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway classic, Cats.
Tom Hooper, the Oscar-winning director of “The King’s Speech,” will direct “Cats,” which is set to begin shooting in Britain in November. The screenplay by Lee Hall (“Billy Elliot”) is based on Lloyd Webber’s musical, which was itself adapted from a book of children’s poems by T.S. Eliot.
Hudson, who won an Oscar in 2007 for her breakout role in “Dreamgirls,” will play Grizabella, the former “glamour cat” who falls on hard times and gets to sing about it in showstopper “Memory.” It’s unclear which roles will be played by Swift, Corden and McKellen.
