    Carrie Underwood Trying the Acting Thing

    Why should Taylor Swift , Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson have all the multihyphenate fun?

    Carrie Underwood is crossing over for her film debut, signing up for Soul Surfer, the biopic of 19-year-old surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack but persevered to resume hanging 10 less than a month later.

    Underwood will play the church youth leader in the movie, joining Annasophia Robb, Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid and, in a nice convergence of nepotism, Lorraine Nicholson and Sean Brosnan, the daughter and son of Jack and Pierce, respectively. Shooting kicked off in Hawaii this week.

    Sounds gnarly, yes?
