JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Taylor Swift

JLo Bye Bye Birdie Casting Scouting Report: Taylor Swift

In the opening number “Telephone Hour” of ‘Bye Bye Birdie’, the teens of Sweet Apple Ohio state sing that Kim MacAfee is “too tall.” At 5’10, singing sensation Taylor Swift certainly fits the bill.

Although Swift has not done a lot of acting, she is not totally green. In 2009 she appeared as a rebellious teenager in CBS’s ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.’ She made her feature film debut in ‘Valentine’s Day.’

And, of course, as a 10 time Grammy winner, she knows how to deliver a song.

Executive Producers Jennifer Lopez, Neil Meron, and Craig Zadan may not want to cast an actress as Kim that would overshadow JLo’s Rosie. But if they are looking for name talent, they can’t do much better than Swift.
