Taylor Swift is headed for the big screen again - well, at least her voice is.
The country music star has landed a role in the 3-D animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ "The Lorax" as the voice behind Audrey.
The movie tells the story of Ted, played by Zac Efron, an idealistic boy who wants to win the affections of Audrey. To do so he must search for the Lorax, played by Danny DeVito, a grumpy environmentalist creature. The Lorax fights to save his world from the Once-ler, played by Ed Helms, as well as a new villain, financial king O’Hare (Rob Riggle). Betty White will serve as Grammy Norma, Ted’s wise grandmother.
The Lorax and the Once-ler are the only characters that are actually from Dr. Seuss’ book, which was first published in 1971.
