A Shawn Johnson movie?

That might be what’s next for the Dancing with the Stars champion. From E! Online:

Shawn Johnson may be somersaulting onto the big screen.

The Olympic gymnast and recent Dancing With the Stars champ tells me she’s mulling over the chance to break into acting in a big way…

“I got an offer for a movie,” Johnson, 17, told me yesterday at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s A Time for Heroes Celebrity Carnival in L.A. “If I take them up on it, it’ll be very exciting.”

She didn’t want to give too much away, but she revealed that it’s a starring role in a kids flick.

Filmmakers have given her about a month to decide. “It’s nerve-racking,” she said. “I have a lot of decisions to make.”

Time for a poll:

    I think if Shawn does this, she’ll probably be signing off on her gymnastics career in favor of the perks–which is fine with me, if that is what she wants to do. I believe her when she says she will go to the gym and see if her heart is in it, and make her decisions from there. Three more years of intense training is a lot to ask of such a young person. If she keeps it up, she should be there because she wants to be.

    For better or worse, fame is fleeting. I hope she doesn’t give up a career in elite gym to be a movie star just to find that no one cares in two years. But if she just feels done and is ready to move on, I wish her the best.

    Perhaps you need one more choice button on the poll. Like “Who cares”
