Carrie Underwood on "Soul Surfer"

Carrie Underwood has made waves for her first movie role in the family-friendly "Soul Surfer," which is based on the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a surfer who didn't let losing an arm in a shark attack stop her from doing what she loves. In the movie Underwood plays a youth counselor that helps Bethany get her life back on track. The very humble Carrie Underwood admits that she knows her debut movie role won't win her an Oscar, which wasn't the case for another "American Idol" alum.

Speaking of Broadway shows, after performing in front of millions for "American Idol," it's not surprising that many former contestants are so comfortable onstage in front of a relatively small Broadway crowd: Fantasia scored a part in "The Color Purple;" Diana DeGarmo landed the role of Penny Pingleton in "Hairspray;" Frenchie Davis starred in "Rent;" and Josh Strickland got in touch with his wild side as the title character in "Tarzan." He now appears on the reality series "Holly's World."

Carrie Underwood hasn't ventured to the Broadway stage yet, but wherever she decides to try to take her talents to next, she can take comfort in knowing that it can't be as big of a disaster as "From Justin to Kelly." (Reference)
