Then she decided to do a Nicolas Sparks adaptation and a romantic comedy, knocking her back down. If rumors are true, Seyfried's next film will target an even younger demographic: the Disney Kids.

Seyfried is probably the exact kind of actress that Disney will be looking for when casting comes around, but I doubt this is it.
