Zachary Levi Says He Would Be Too Old To Play Flynn Rider In A Live-Action ‘Tangled‘. Much to Tangled fans dismay, Zachary Levi, the infamous voice of Flynn Rider, aka Eugene Fitzherbert, believes he would be “too old” to play the swashbuckling debonair if Disney decides to make a live-action remake of the 2010 Disney Classic.
“As much as I would love to play Flynn Rider in a live-action Tangled, by the time they get around to that, I don’t think I’m gonna be the right guy to play that role [laughs]. I’ll be there coaching that guy, I’ll make sure he understands what that smolder means, but I think my hair will be like Steve Martin white by the time they do a live-action Tangled,” stated the 38 year-old actor. Jokingly, Levi continued, “So in lieu of playing Flynn Rider in a live-action Tangled, I would say, I don’t know… Ariel from The Little Mermaid, maybe.”
Though we would love to see Zachary’s best Flynn Rider smolder in real life, it appears Zach believes a younger actor would be better suited for the role of Rapunzel’s love interest if Disney decided to create a live-action remake of Tangled.
Zachary Levi has played the voice of Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert in Tangled, Tangled: Ever After, Tangled: Before Ever After, Tangled The Series, and in Kingdom Hearts 3.
