Quite the list... G-man's been thinking hard on his Lois choices. :o)
Sadly I only know about half the actresses listed, so I'll vote for Evangeline Lilly. Although I'm hoping for Bridget Regan (Legend Of The Seeker) to get the role.
Oh the list, my vote goes to Janet Montgomery.
As for non-list? I may be a little biased with this choice, but I personally dig Jennifer Carpenter. Her roll on Dexter as deb shows her acting and great "in your face, on the scene" personality I think Lois Lane respectively should have.
edit: I should note that Carpenter IMO also has a tad bit of the Erica Durance look that many fans of Smallville would enjoy/recognize.
Evangeline Lilly? Please no. After awhile I could not stand her in LOST - she bugged me almost as much as Kristin kreuk (Lana Lang) in Smallville. Her acting ability just seems so limited.
Rachel McAdams I can see in the role.
How about Mila Kunis?
I'm with Dark Huntress I think erica Durance would be a great Lois. In the future scenes on Smallville she changed her look alittle where you could feel the age difference so it wouldn't be a big jump for her. If not her i would go with Evangeline Lilly. She has the look.
Malin Ackerman is a horrible idea. I mean, she's cute, but she can't act her way out of a paper bag.
I'm thinking Rachel McAdams. She's already part of WB's cast on Sherlock Holmes. WB seems to have this weird obsession with keeping all of their franchises completely separate, thoough, so I don't see that happening.
I'll agree that a lot of these options don't really feel like Lois, to me. Actually, I think I'm going to cast my vote to McAdams, of these-- I've not seen her in a lot, but I know she's handled roles that lend to this part, and she has the right look for Lois. I could see her in the role, and doing well at it.
Lois isn't some young-looking "cute" tart like Hathaway and Portman. We saw what happened when we had a FAAAR too young looking lois in returns. It was hard to take her seriously..and while I do like Hathaway and Portman (and most of the girls listed in the movies I've seen them in) almost NONE of the picks you have here fit even close.
of those you listed only really McAdam's and Lilly have the "look" that would befit a "strong" "serious" "no-bullshit" reporter like Lois Lane.
note -> none of what I say is in any way pointed at any of these actresses abilities to "act" or their "talent" just none of them, but MAYBE the two I mentioned, would "look" and "feel" the part.
who would I rather see? honestly....no idea...no actress comes to mind that would look and feel the part of Lois Lane.
" Rachel McAdams would make a PERFECT Lois Lane. "i was gonna comment about her. i like her BUT....she kinda has baby face, too much of a sweatheart. SHE IS however older than she looks. She did play a different character in Mean Girls. i'll probably be thinking of all the other roles she played while watching her, (there's a reason why Toby McGuire, Routh, Dean Cain and other actors went well in their roles, they were RELATIVELY LESS KNOWN) But for Lois, you NEED someone who can do it well
