American TV series are full of cameos from renowned rappers, singers, musicians and even politicians and then there is Britney Spears who, despite getting tons of offers, refuses to guest star in too many of them. The last time she was seen making a fully fledged appearance was way back in 2002 when she showed her acting prowess in ‘Crossroads’. However, she has done a few guest appearances here and there in some comedy shows, on the top of them was ‘How I Met Your Mother’, where she played a gullible receptionist and won hearts all over. So, taking up the less number of projects, she might very well be slightly under-confident regarding her acting abilities. But her one time co-star Taryn Manning believes that she can do ‘anything’. Yes Taryn, you are right, we loved her in ‘How I Met Your Mother’, she was so great in it.
Some new reports suggest that the ‘Orange is the New Black’ cast wants Britney to join the cast as they think that she would be a perfect addition to the cast. In another story, which is somehow related to this one, Britney’s new boyfriend, Harry Morton, is said to have her closest friends in a tizzy. Word has it that Morton is well-known for loving and leaving some of Hollywood’s biggest names, and Spears’ besties fear she will be the next notch on his radar.
Although Hollywood doesn’t seem very excited to give Spears another chance in a movie (the dud ‘Crossroad’ still haunts them), Taryn is very confident that the star must be given another chance and they won’t regret as he has seen abilities in her. Well, it seems like the 33 years old singer has still got some really good friends in the industry.
When the reporters asked Taryn whether she is ready to act again in OITNB, he simply said that she is as ready as she can be; she is just waiting for the chance to prove herself. She will prove that the flop of ‘Crossroads’ has been taken very seriously and it as happened to the best of actors in past and she is well through that phase as she has matured quite a lot since then.
“Of course, I want Britney Spears everywhere you can see her… She’s the best. They would have to make up a character — she is such a good actor that I feel like they could do anything with her. I was so impressed working with her I was like she’s just very sincere in her acting, you know? It’s like everyone wanted to maybe hope that she’s not gonna be good but she was great.”, Taryn said.
What do you think about the idea of Britney Spears one day returning to acting in a serious way?
Is it best that Spears focus on what she is already known for being good at?
Or, is it about time Hollywood gave Britney another chance?
