Carrie Underwood isn't just dipping her foot in the acting waters -- she's jumped right in! Carrie recently shot scenes for one episode of the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, set to air in March, and she's just been cast in the upcoming movie Soul Surfers.
Soul Surfers is based on the life of Bethany Hamilton, the 19-year-old surfer who lost her left arm in October 2003 when it was bitten off by a tiger shark. Carrie will play Sarah Hill, a church youth counselor.
Filming on the flick starts this month, but first, Carrie's got to make a trip down to Miami! The American Idol alum will perform the national album before this Sunday's Super Bowl XLIV.
What do you think of Carrie's new acting career?
