Adam Levine hadn't really done any acting before Ryan Murphy selected him for the upcoming season two of American Horror Story; now, he's landed a movie role, too. Deadline reports that Levine has joined Can a Song Save Your Life from Once director John Carney, where he'll play a singer who dumps girlfriend Keira Knightley, sending her into the arms of record producer Mark Ruffalo. Watch out, Keira: Blake Shelton might get a little jealous.
