He's a dark-haired B.C.-born crooner, and she's a blonde, blue-eyed Nashville actress, but Michael Bublé and Reese Witherspoon could soon be making sweet music together -- literally.
The 36-year-old "Sweet Home Alabama" actress is reportedly in talks with Bublé about recording a duet in the near future. It's not uncommon for well-known film actresses and actors to try their hand at rock music (see: Keanu Reeves, Jared Leto), dance tracks (see: Lindsay Lohan), or weird atmospheric experimental music with a children's choir (see: Ryan Gosling's Dead Man's Bones). With Bublé, Witherspoon is going for a slower, more traditional route for her foray into the music industry by partnering with one of Canada's most celebrated jazz singers.
Luckily, she's got some experience to help her. Witherspoon trained her voice for her performance as June Carter in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic "Walk the Line" alongside Joaquin Phoenix, which won her the Oscar that year, among other awards. Jennifer Lopez also started a music career after playing the title role in 1997's "Selena" about the famous Latin-American singer -- and we all know how that turned out for her.
However, it's still surprising that Witherspoon is getting back in front of the microphone at all, since she said filming the musical parts of "Walk the Line was "the most challenging, horrifying experience of [her] life."
"They literally had to push me to get me up there on the stage and say, 'You have to do this. It is time. We are all waiting for you.' I thought I was going to throw up the whole first day. It was awful," she said in an interview at the time.
Don't worry, Reese! Even Michael Bublé suffers from nerves every once in a while -- though his insecurities don't stem from his singing voice, but from his ice hockey skills (or lack thereof).
