Gather round kids, because I’m here to predict a possible future for your hero Taylor Swift.
This Person Looks Like That Person, for lack of a better name, is a column I did sporadically in other corners of the internet. Haven’t done it in a long time but I had no choice but to resurrect it, because this kid is everywhere and every time I see her, I think the same damn thing…
Taylor Swift = Christine Baranski minus a few years, also minus acting lessons.
By way of introduction:
Taylor Swift is one of the most lucrative names in popular music right now, for whatever reason.
Christine Baranski is a huge name in the theater world, and she’s currently starring on the TV show The Good Wife on CBS. She has been in TV and movies for a couple decades now, appearing in movies like THE REF, THE BIRDCAGE, BULWORTH, BOWFINGER, and CHICAGO, among many others. She is a character actress who often plays urbane and over-privileged. Her characters can be a pain in the ass, but she plays them with knowingness and a wry sense of humor. We can only hope Taylor Swift adds the latter to her act one day. Either way, they look pretty much the same.
I know it can be frustrating, but sometimes there’s nothing to do except agree with me.
