Jewel to play June Carter Cash in Lifetime biopic
Jewel's next big paycheck will come in from TV, as the crossover star has been tapped in to play June Carter Cash in a Lifetime biopic.
Deadline reports that the singer-songwriter-turned-dance-star-turned-country-and-childrens-albums-singer will lead alongside Johnny Cash -- to be played by "American Horror Story's" Matt Ross -- in the film, directed by Alison Anders ("Southland," "Sex in the City," "Four Rooms").
"The June Carter Cash Story" is based on the memoir "Anchored In Love: An Intimate Portrait Of June Carter Cash" by the late singer's son John Carter Cash. It will be shot in Atlanta this summer for premiere later this year.
Jewel -- aka Jewel Kilcher -- has appeared on television many times, mostly in roles as herself. She last released album "Sweet and Wild" in 2010.
