Would Catherine Zeta-Jones Make a Good Susan Boyle?

Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has expressed interest in buying the film rights to singing phenomenon Susan Boyle's life story.

I can see why Susan Boyle's story would appeal to the Welsh beauty, who can also sing and dance. The dowdy underdog who ended up wowing the judges on Britain's Got Talent has a story with built-in buzz and drama. Do you think she'd make a good Susan Boyle?

No...I don't understand what the point of this article is. If CZJ wants to be crazy and buy the rights and play this woman [is her life even movie-worthy? Because it'll need a LOT MORE than just "oh I got to sing on Britain's Got Talent and people underestimated me but boy I can sing and they loved it". Really, Boyle's not all that remarkable to make a lifetime movie from. She's just not. Sorry.

I think she could pull it off. Other actors and actresses have changed their weight for a role, so can Jones. And she is a talented singer and dancer.

I'm tired of beautiful people being cast as fat or ugly. I remember reading that Beyonce wished she'd been given the opportunity to gain weight in order to play Effie. I'm damn glad the producers thought otherwise.

I am not so sure about Catherine taking on this role. I think too much is being made of Susan Boyle not being some gorgeous creature. Who says talented people who aren't cookie-cutter lovely can't find success?

I feel so bad for Susan Boyle with everyone talking about how ugly she is. I mean how come fat guys can be great opera singers, comedians, etc and nobody ever says anything? Susan's extremely talented, if they want to find an actress to play her they'd better start looking for one who can sing too, because that's going to be harder to find than someone who can wear a fat suit.

I can't imagine that anyone who looks like Catherine Zeta-Jones would be able to identify with someone who up until recently claimed she'd never been kissed.

Smacks, you're onto something..Kathy Bates can sing...she was in Annie with Victor Garber back in what...1998? As an actress I'm positive Catherine Zeta-Jones could pull this off, but she'd have to have excess weight added and an incredible makeup artist... I don't really get the whole Susan Boyle craze anyway. I mean sure, she can sing, and sure, she's kind of homely, but is her ENTIRE life's history really THAT interesting?

She'd really have to make an effort, looks wise. But she's got a great singing voice (loved her in Chicago).

I don't really see it. Maybe someone bigger, Kathy Bates? She's a great actress, don't know if she can sing though.
