I'd cast Kaya Scodelario as X-23. She looks very much like how most artists draw Laura.

Mila Kunis for X-23.

@J1ml33: Except she is likely not a good actress. Most porn "actress's" aren't.

@Kairan1979: I can see that.

Firstly - I don't really care, who will play her, because I will worship any actress who will show that tragic, dark and badass NOT A HERO, but simply an assasin. Realism and spy thriller plots first of all.

Secondly - as for my choice of an actress - It's about being a badass and tough girl, but very sensitive deep inside. Look Below:

I know everyone will criticise my choice, because she is so heavily labeled (She plays in that vampire love story. How low can you go), but I've seen her in other movies and she is very good, devoted to a role. On top of her roles is the one from "Speak" where she played a troubled, heavily alienated girl, who have been raped and tries to live her life. Her performance was (I must really say that) IDENTICAL with X23 from Innocence Lost in terms of behaviour, alienation, psychology (but not in term of killing of course), not to mention that she was 13 when she did her performance - the age of X23 in Innocence Lost. But the main fact that speaks for her is that she likes posing as a troubled, dark girl (I;m pretty sure you know what I mean - she always looks like if she is pissed off), so the role of an "always-angry" teenage killer, wouldn't be a problem for her.

For X-23- Kristen Kreuk?

A legit actress for X-23 since porn "actress's" can't "act" (which is funny considering how many fanboys & fangirls say the exact same thing when it comes to legit actors being cast for comic book roles on an almost regular basis).

Alessandra Torresani.

I agree that Kristen Stewart isn't a bad actress. In fact, most of the cast in Twilight aren't bad. They're doing the best they can given the material in front of them.

In terms of looks, Daveigh Chase. Same smile, same eyes, and same hair as Laura to a tee. Not sure on her acting ability though. She wouldn't have to say much (which is sad- waste of a good voice) but she'd have to make up for it 10-fold with emotional and physical acting, since that's where most of Laura's character lies in general.

@Stammer6: In terms of darkness and scariness, Daveigh Chase=Samara is a bullseye

Josh Hutcherson as Hellion. Photos dont work on my computer for whatever reason but someone can make a comparison pretty easily.

Megan Fox, Summer Glau, Odette Annabelle (Yustman), Emilia Clarke, Jaimie Alexander, Michelle Branch (and she's Asian), Camilla Belle, Olivia Wilde, Kristen Kreuk all look too old to play X-23, who is a teenager. Even with hair/makeup/clothes, they still look too old (and Megan Fox? seriously you guys? Baby voice and kissy face are not two traits I think of when I think of X-23). Summer, Emilia, Jaimie, and Kristen would've been decent choices 10 years ago.

Alia Shawkat looks like she's about 35, so no way. Janel Parrish is Asian, so no. Emma Stone... no, she's got a way of delivering lines that just wouldn't sound right for X-23. Kristen Stewart would be a travesty-- have you see anything she's been in (and not just Twilight, I mean everything)? Hell no x1000, she is an awful actress and I will never understand her popularity. Sasha Grey... ngl it weirds me out to see porn stars in so many of these posts, it comes off as some site-wide obsession or something that makes me a bit uncomfortable :/

Miley Cyrus would be a travesty with her making chipmunk and fish faces the entire time and lisping in every line. The absolute worst choice, and I don't think she should be acting in general, unless it's in comedy because she's just that hammy.

Emily Browning, Kaya Scodelario, Daveigh Chase, Alessandra Torresani, and Chloe Moretz could all work though. They're decent actresses (well, Kaya is sometimes lol), and they could look the right age believably.

My personal pick though is India Eisley. After seeing her in Underworld: Awakening I think she'd make a great X-23. She looks the part and she could play the part well imo

I don't know, something about Josh Hutcherson just doesn't sit right with me for Hellion (he's just too sweet, too short, too squat or something imo lol). But when I saw your post, I immediately remembered his costar in the Cirque du Freak movie - Chris Massoglia. I think he'd be better for Hellion.

Honestly I don't really like him as an actor because he seems too involved in the PG roles but he's has played a lot of parts where the kid has an attitude. Playing a rich kid with an attitude wouldn't be much of a stretch. Just look at him.

Yeah, I mean he can look it... I think it is the kiddie movies. He just comes across as so sweet and innocent. I've honestly never really believed him in the smarmy roles lol I didn't think he was convincing. Which is probably why everyone thinks he's perfect for Peeta in The Hunger Games, because he IS Peeta.

I know right? She almost was X-23 in that movie lol And especially when she shifts and attacks. I spent like half the movie trying to think of who it was she reminded me of, until I came home and it clicked.

@rokusan23: Ha. In all seriousness, I think either India isley or Summer glau would make pretty decent X-23's.

@x_29: I agree on the India Isley, but Summer would be good for if someone has a vision of the future with X-23 in it or something like that. She is and looks way too old.

..... She's barely 30, since when does being 30 make you look old lol. Unless you mean just for the role which I do agree with you on that.

Audrey Hepburn in her hayday... those eyes (T^T )

#232 Posted by Stammer6 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

More than anything, the first things I think about when I think of Laura are her gorgeous green eyes. I think physically, it's the most important part of her character. So much emotion and thought behind her eyes in practically everything she's in. You can dye hair black, you can coach acting, but I think finding a woman with eyes like that is a huge step foward. And wow, Audrey Hepburn does have them lol.

summer glau has always been the first one i thought of, but she's maybe a bit too old now

Underworld Awakening kind of has me hooked on the India Eisley chick, she seems competent enough to play X-23, considering her viciousness as Eve. Also, I'm slightly, only slightly, leaning toward Selena Gomez (she's gotten somewhat hotter recently).

omggggg Selena Gomez? lol. She may somewhat look the part, but she is way too sweet for a role like X-23. And, while I'll admit I liked Wizards of Waverly Place, and some of her music, I'm not sure she's capable of playing bad and sad. She's just too sweet and nice and goody-goody (which tbh is what I like about her).

Saoirse Ronan

She played in Hanna (if you didn't see it, go watch it), Atonement (for which she got GG & AA noms), City of Ember and some other movies. She's got both the physical skill and the acting chops to make a great Laura.

#237 Posted by Stammer6 (22 posts) - - Show Bio

Saoirse Ronan? Yeah I could live with her as Laura, too! She's a great age, has a similar body type and face to what I'd imagine Laura would have. And yeah, I can see her acting the part well too.

@RUKM:

I think that Eliza Dushku would have made a good X-23 a decade ago, but now she is 31 and too old to play a current X-23. She might make a good future X-23 though.

Megan Fox. I know, I know, barely any acting talent. But she's hot, she has the body, and she can pull off a teenager fairly well by looks alone (Transformers, for example). Giver her martial arts (mixed in with some Yoga) and acrobatic training, and she could be Laura, no sweat. Though people would still complain, which is beyond me why.

India Eisley would probably be the best choice for X-23, everyone else that's suggested, is either to old, or just the wrong choice entirely (got tired of Summer Glau posts....). Except for maybe Chloe Grace Moretz, after watching Kick-Ass and Let Me In, she can do it as a young X-23 (age 7-10 or somewhere around that age range for the first few parts of Innocence Lost), while India would be the older X-23 (age 15-18 during the Target X part of the film). Or India would be X-23 for the whole thing and they would just get a 7-year old, and possibly a 13-year old (depending on if the director thinks she can pull off looking 13, but she played a 12-year old in Underworld: Awakening so....and these are X-23's ages during Innocence Lost in case anybody was wondering), and CGI India's face on them, and age her back to the specific age (I mean they did this in TRON: Legacy with Jeff Bridges), but above everyone else, India is X-23.
