Jewel Kilcher reveals her look for June Carter Cash movie


rsz_tbd-junecarter060812.jpgIn a move much more interesting than Lindsay Lohan playing Elizabeth Taylor, singer Jewel Kilcher (whom you may know better as, um, Jewel) has revealed her new look for her own Lifetime movie. She'll be playing June Carter Cash in, well, The June Carter Cash Story.

"Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth ‪#ringoffire‬" Jewel tweeted via @jeweljk. Funny she didn't mention the dark hair, because the really big change. We've included a pic of June in 1968 with Johnny Cash to give you something to compare her to. What do you say, yea or nay?

With no disrespect to June, she's had a couple of real knockouts portray her in movies; cutie Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for 2005's Walk the Line, and Jewel is no slouch in the looks department, either. Jewel likely won't win any awards for this, but such casting is really quite the tribute to Carter, who certainly had a bit more life on her face than either of those two.
