Dolly Parton Re-Ignites Movie Career with ‘Joyful Noise’

youtube.com

For a time back in the early 80s, it seemed like Dolly Parton was going to be the next big movie star. It felt like she was in everything. But, then again, everything “Dolly” was and is always larger than life. So, maybe, 2 movies felt like 10. And when those two movies are huge hits like “9 to 5″ and “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” you may not need 8 more. She had another big hit with 1989′s “Steel Magnolias,” but other projects like “Rhinestone” and “Straight Talk” were less, shall we say, notable.  Now, Dolly’s back on the big screen co-starring with Queen Latifah in the musical comedy “Joyful Noise.” It’s Dolly’s first major screen role in 20 years and, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she admits that while she was not actively looking to do another movie, she was drawn to the role because of the gospel music around which the film is centered. “Joyful Noise” opens nationwide this Friday.
