Zooey Deschanel was chosen to play Janis Joplin in the movie biopic of the singer. Pink was was the original choice to play the late rocker, but pulled out, blaming the movie's producers for turning the casting process into "some circus pop contest - who's the 'it' girl who wants to play Janis." What?
Anyway, Deschanel has signed to play Joplin in The Gospel According To Janis, which starts filming in Philadelphia in November.
