Dolly Parton Tells A Little Girl She’ll Be Playing Her In A Biopic, And It’ll Warm Your Cold Black Heart.

Alyvia Lind has been cast as a young Dolly Parton in “Coat of Many Colors,” NBC’s upcoming TV movie about the country legend’s humble beginnings and rise to success.Casting for Coat of Many Colors, a made-for-TV movie about Dolly Parton’s upbringing in East Tennessee, is in full swing, with seven-year-old actress Alyvia Lind landing the role of the school-aged country singer. A recurring character on The Young and the Restless, Lind was making a scheduled appearance on this morning’s episode of NBC’s Today Show when she was surprised by Parton, who’d shown up to offer her the role. (Watch the video below.) The two met during Lind’s audition for the upcoming movie, which will be the first in a string of TV movies based on Parton’s life and career. According to Variety, the movie will not be a biopic, but will tell the story of the “tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love,” which sounds like a biopic to us, but whatever.

Parton, who partnered with NBC for the project, will serve as the executive producer. “What we’re really here to do is to announce that you have been chosen to play little Dolly in the movie,” Parton told Lind, who promptly covered her mouth to hide a wide smile. She was most recently seen as Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig’s daughter in “A Deadly Adoption,” the Lifetime movie parody that aired on Lifetime. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. Early production on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert came to a screeching halt Wednesday as United Airlines flights were grounded, the New York Stock Exchange went dark and dogs began walking on two legs — mass hysteria!

Amidst the computer-bred chaos, though, Colbert sought safety in his office and recorded a dire, desperate message pondering humanity’s new fate. “I have to wonder if there’s anyone left alive to see this broadcast,” Colbert said. “For all I know, I’m the last celebrity alive on earth and the apes have taken over the talk shows. The youngster most recently had a role in Lifetime’s Will Ferrell movie A Deadly Adoption and her credits include playing Jenny in Masters of Sex and Grace in Amazon’s Transparent.

They’re not ready for that kind of responsibility!” Colbert went on to lament mankind’s fragility and dependence on technology (such as that second fridge in the garage), but soon realized it was up to him to lead this brave new world. He displayed his treasures — including “over 60 bags of snackable chip” — and introduced his new queen, Vindaloo, a chicken who stayed remarkably calm in Colbert’s arms for almost the entire clip. He’s earning college credit.” Prepared, finally, to assume his role as leader, Colbert promised to disseminate weekly edicts from his bunker before kicking back and counting his trove of K-Cups — until he realized, he had no Keurig. “That’s not fair.
