not unusual for a singer to morph into the big screen as fellow entertainer Taylor Swift will make her debut with a role in
Valentine’s Day, a film literally starring every A-lister in Hollywood ranging from Julia Roberts to Bradley Cooper to Jennifer Garner.

Underwood’s film, Soul Surfer, is about the surfer who lost her arm to a shark when she was only 13-years-old. Carrie will play Bethany’s friend and church counselor, Sarah

Bethany noted, “Sarah has been my best friend since I was very young…after my shark attack, she always knew what to say to push me on.”

Although industry insiders are touting the role as somewhat minor, considering Sara played a big role in Bethany’s life, perhaps Underwood’s on-screen shine time will be more considerable than initial sources

AnnaSopha Robb will play Bethany and Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt will portray her parents. Jack Nicholson’s daughter, Lorraine, will play another friend.

As if this isn’t big enough news, Carrie Underwood will sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in Miami on February 7. Right after the game she will jet to Hawaii to film the movie and in
March, audiences can catch Underwood on How I Met Your Mother in a guest spot.
