'American Idol' champ Carrie Underwood lands 'Soul Surfer' film role

By Christopher Rocchio, 02/08/2010 

Carrie Underwood has been bitten by the acting bug.

The American Idol fourth-season winner has landed her first movie gig with a supporting role in Soul Surfer, her representative told Us Weekly in a Thursday report.

The film will chronicle the story of teenage surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack, according to Us, which added Underwood will play church youth leader Sarah Hill. In addition, Soul Surfer will star Helen Hunt as Hamilton's mother, Dennis Quaid as her father, and AnnaSophia Robb in the title role.

Filming began in Hawaii last week.

Underwood is already scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode of CBS' How I Met Your Mother sitcom, in which she'll play the role of Tiffany -- a pharmaceutical sales representative who is the love interest of Ted, played by actor Josh Radnor.

In December, she helmed Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special -- a two-hour Fox variety show that featured performances by Underwood as well as scripted skits starring her and several guest stars.
