You cast Carrie Underwood to play the singing nun in the remake of The Sound of Music. Oh, dear.

You know, I like Carrie Underwood, but I just don't see her as Maria.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Why does a classic like "The Sound of Music" need to be re-made? Hollywood needs some idea people. They apparently can't think of anything new to do so they sit around and remake/trash really excellent movies.

The revised story line will likely center on her agonizing over whether to lose her virginity or not the entire film, until she finally does...sigh...

Are they going to make a "country" version of the story? If not I'm sure how it'll work. I think Carrie Underwood is great, but she can't hold a candle to Julie Andrews.

Can she sing without the twang? I don't know.

At least this is just a live broadcast performance, and not a remake of the film.

Oh yeah, she can sing with no accent at all and does it very well. But taking on Maria is a big call with almost no upside to it and a lot of room to fall.
Its gutsy! I'll say that for her!
