Alanis Morissette Takes Acting Turn in Radio Free Albemuth


Alanis Morissette


The Canadian singer is billed to fill in the role of a woman who shows up in the vision of a record label executive as a glamorous singer.

Amidst her state of being busy preparing her new album, "Flavors of Entanglement", Alanis Morissette appears to have enough space to add an acting stint into her schedule. The Hollywood Reporter has just revealed that the Grammy Award-winning singer is about to star in "Radio Free Albemuth", a big screen adaptation of the Philip K. Dick semi-autobiographical novel.

Morissette is learned to play a woman named Sylvia who shows up in the vision of Nick, a record label executive played by Jonathan Scarfe, as a glamorous singer. In reality, she, however, turns out to be an ordinary woman in unexpected remission from lymphoma who, after appearing in Nick's visions, gets a job as his secretary.

"I am a big fan of Philip K. Dick's poetic and expansively imaginative books," so she said in expressing her delight upon securing a slot in the project. "I feel blessed to portray Sylvia, and to be part of this story being told in film."

The Canadian native is therefore joining other talents in the cast that include Shea Whigham, Katheryn Winnick, and Hanna Hall, recently spotted in Rob Zombie's "Halloween." Pic has already started production in and around Los Angeles with John Alan Simon helming from his own script.
