Overheard: Taylor Swift should star in a ‘Grease’ remake

*** begin quote ***

It’s probably only a matter of time before “Grease” joins “Footloose” and “Dirty Dancing” as classic films being remade for a new generation, and Olivia Newton-John knows it.

The 63-year-old actress told “Showbiz Tonight’s” A.J. Hammer that she’s not opposed to the idea of a “Grease” remake, and even has an idea on who could star in her role as Sandy:

63? She can’t be. She’ll always be that demur timeless “Debbie Reynolds as Tammy” girl who morphs into one hot “every boy’s fantasy”. If she is 63, what does that make me? OLD!

And, I just realized I missed my chance (in my dreams) to win her heart!


I would advise Ms. Swift — as if she needs advice from a fat old white guy injineer — to be very careful. I believe that she can pull off the role of pre-transformation tightly-emotially-wrapped Sandy with ease. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), she might need a body double to out “hot” Olivia Newton-John’s Sandy as the more-tightly-physically-wrapped “trampy” vamp. I think that would be hard to beat. Boob job or not!
