She made a brief cameo in “Hannah Montana: The Movie” earlier this year, and now [artist id="2389485"]Taylor Swift[/artist] is increasing her acting résumé with a role in the upcoming romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day.”
After photos of Swift alongside “Twilight” star [movieperson id="373803"]Taylor Lautner[/movieperson] emerged late Thursday, MTV News contacted the singer’s rep to confirm her casting in the film, which also stars Jamie Foxx, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Garner. “She has been confirmed for the ensemble cast,” said her rep, who wouldn’t specify any further what her role in the film is.
Although reps for Lautner and the film have yet to confirm his casting in the flick at press time, photos clearly show the pair on set, with the actor wearing a button-down shirt and a tie. Swift is pictured in a skirt, a cardigan and a white T-shirt.
Other photos have emerged on several blogs showing the Taylors kissing on set, and Just Jared reports that Swift and Lautner will play their school’s prom king and queen in the flick, but this has yet to be confirmed. In other photos of the pair, they are seen in track-and-field T-shirts with red shorts.
The Garry Marshall-directed film follows five interconnected stories set in Los Angeles on Valentine’s Day. Lautner and Swift join a laundry list of Hollywood’s biggest names, which includes Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Shirley MacLaine, Ashton Kutcher, Topher Grace and Roberts’ niece Emma Roberts, as well as “Grey’s Anatomy” stars Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane.
