Will there also be parts for Meredith and Olivia? 

It’s already been announced that Taylor Swift will take on a role in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Cats, but the question remains, which feisty feline will she be portraying on the big screen?

Composer Andrew Lloyd Webber -- who is working on the upcoming film adaptation that will star Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, and Ian McKellen -- gave fans some insight into the 28-year-old pop star’s part in the upcoming musical movie.

“She’s going to play one or other of the ‘Macavity’ girls,” Webber recently told Vulture, noting it would either be the flirty Bombalurina or the skittish Demeter, who both sing the song “Macavity the Mystery Cat.”

Webber noted that it was director Tom Hooper who originally advocated that the “Shake It Off” singer get the part. 

“Basically, Tom Hooper thought it was a really good idea, and of course, she loves cats,” he noted. “We’ll see. I mean, I haven’t met her, so I’m looking forward to meeting her and seeing her [at work].” 

Swift certainly isn’t shy about her love for cats. The pet owner often shares sweet photos and videos of her cats, Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson, who are named after the lead characters on Grey’s Anatomy and Law and Order: SVU

While fans wait to hear which feline Swift will be portraying, it's been confirmed that Hudson will be playing Grizabella, who sings the musical’s most famous song, “Memory.”
