Disney has been busy planning live-action versions of some of their past animated hits. Among them is Tangled, the 2010 smash hit adapting the Rapunzel story. It starred Mandy Moore as Rapunzel with Zachery Levi as Flynn Rider and was a huge success with its animation and songs. 

A live-action version would need the right actress to play Rapunzel. While a lot of names are mentioned, some may not be right. For example, Amanda Seyfried has long been a dream pick, but at 37, she is a bit too old for the role now. However, there are a lot of choices, from classic blonde-haired actresses to some offbeat choices, and any of these 15 starlets could be a terrific live-action Rapunzel.

Okay, this may be crazy, as Swift doesn't seem too interested in acting aside from a couple of movie cameos. But if she wanted to change that, playing Rapunzel would be fun. Everyone knows she has the singing chops, and her wonderful persona in interviews proves she has the ability to connect with audiences. She also has the lush blonde hair for the part, and her star power alone would get the movie's attention. If Swift wanted to conquer movies like she has with music, playing Rapunzel would be a great way to do it.
