Singer/Songwriter Joanna Newsom Reportedly In For 'Vice', Too


Well how 'bout that.

Just one day after a lengthy news update on Inherent Vice, wherein a couple of you pointed out in the comments section that someone who looked suspiciously like singer/songwriter/harpist Joanna Newsom was seen in some recent set photos, The Playlist is reporting that singer/songwriter/harpist Joanna Newsom will in fact be in the motion picture, citing that very photographic evidence as apparently good enough to confirm an acting role.

Though it's not known who she will play, this will mark Newsom's feature-film debut, after having done a cameo on Portlandia last year. Whether she was brought to PTA's attention through her work with Maya Rudolph's former Saturday Night Live colleague Fred Armisen on that show, or through Newsom's fiancé Andy Samberg -- another old SNL colleague of Maya Rudolph's -- or through some other as-yet-undisclosed channel, this is yet another inspired casting stroke in a long line of truly inspired casting strokes for the film.

Here's JN performing "Sawdust & Diamonds" off her 2006 album "Ys" at The First Unitarian Church Sanctuary in Philadelphia, PA.

Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook for the latest news and updates.
"The Master" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD

  4. Wow. Thats a nice little ditty. Sounds like Bjork to me. I wonder if Paul will include some tunes of hers on the soundtrack.

  5. My guess this is the scene that she will be in:

    "When the set ended, a curious sort of hippie chick approached the piano, her hair short and tightly permed, her outfit including a Little Black Dress from the 1950s and interestingly high stiletto heels. In fact, now that Doc looked closer, maybe she wasn’t really a hippie chick after all. She seated herself at the keyboard the way a poker player might at a promising table, ran a couple of A-minor scales up and down, and without much more introduction than that began to sing the Rodgers & Hart lounge classic “It Never Entered My Mind.” Doc was not a great admirer of torch material, had in fact been known to discreetly withdraw to the nearest toilet if he even suspected some might be on the way, but now he sat confounded and turning to Jell-O. Maybe it was this young woman’s voice, her quiet confidence in the material—howsoever, by the second eight bars Doc knew there was no way not to take the lyric personally. He found shades in his pocket and put them on. After an extended piano break and a repeat of the refrain, Doc on some impulse turned, and there was Coy Harlingen at his shoulder, like a parrot in a cartoon, also wearing shades and nodding. “I can sure relate to that lyric, man. Like, you make these choices? you know for sure you’r e doing the right thing for everybody, then it all goes belly-up and you see it couldn’t have been more wrong.”

    1. That's perfect.
      But the garb she's in looks different in the photos and she's walking in the daylight, but maybe she's not in costume in those photos?

    How long did the filming for his other films take? Can we take a guess at the lenth of the film itself?

    1. i really think the movie won't be longer than lets say 130 minutes at the mostly most because it will be a stoner dectective comedy with lots of stars in minor roles like reese,del toro or penn so it's not the big character drama movie like his last tho films.
      i will take a guess and suppose that paul will do a the master thing like shooting in north carolina what was supposed to be england...this time with shooting the vegas scenes also in la so probably this is the reason why it hasn't wrapped yet
