Who would do Emma Frost justice, in the xmen movies?

#1 Posted by stevenJKPower (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Does everyone remember the Emma Frost in the new X-men movie? Like.. come on WTH? She gets in one fighting scene, and not even fully touching basis of her full power. To top it off the actress just sucked. And I mean sucked it big time.

I personally think Nicolette Sheridan, would be a perfect Emma Frost. Her accent and the ability to be sarcastically funny, has been realized in the desperate housewives movies IMO.

IMO....if going for the young Emma look, Kayla Kross

@stevenJKPower: If she were to appear in X-Men 4 or 5, they could actually used Sheridan. Timewise it would be somewhat plausible. And agreed, she would be a better Emma Frost than January Jones.

Acting ability > having the right chest size, IMO.

Although she might be a little too curvaceous to play Emma I think Scarlett Johansson...

I didnt see the problem with January Jones' portrayal of EMMA. She was bitchy, cold, and slightly condescending...perfectly Emma.

Writers just need to give her more to do and she needs to grow into the role a little...show more of her manipulating persona.

I love her in MAD MEN so maybe I was just already used to her.

Other than her, Charlize Theron wouldve been perfect.

My vote.

Candice Hillebrand could do the part some royal just.

Another very random actress who could play Emma would be Victoria Beckham. British Accent, arrogant, sexy, both have bleach blonde hair and a breast implants, and Victoria looks more like Emma than January Jones.

I think we should give January Jones another shot. It's not entirely her fault Emma didn't go over all that well with some people, her dialogue was actually quite plain. She was more of a plot device, we never got any sort of indication of what her motives were. I think they need to play to Emma's wit and disinterest more than her sex appeal, what makes her sexy is that she has no qualms about being as brazen and honest and as brutal as possible.

Not to mention, the alternatives presented aren't very much better. Who even is that chick in the side-by-side with the Emma picture? On looks alone I don't think Emma would pluck her eyebrows to the point where she'd have to draw them in or wear metallic eyeshadow with...lip liner.

As for the rest, Alice Eve or Nicolette Sheridan are contenders. But still, it's sort of like how every Jean Grey thread is just every ginger in Hollywood. I predict many other big-racked, blonde actresses for this thread. Elisha Cuthbert? Anyone mention her yet? People always fit her for every role, drives me nuts.

I agree, January Jones was a solid choice for the role, The best casting is usually when its someone who would be your absolute last pick for the role...like Kevin Bacon as Sebastian Shaw (who saw that coming). I found Januarys lack of presence in the role to be great...like she was cold or distant, I have no idea if she did that on purpose though
 
I guess an alternate choice for me would been Natasha Henstridge, or Imogen Bailey

I swear I was thinking about this today in class (yeah it was boring for me.)

I was thinking that Jennifer Lawrence should have been Emma Frost and not Mystique. IMHO

However, I say Emma Watson should be the next Emma Frost when she's older. Just in time for a Marvel reboot or something.

IMO....if going for the young Emma look, Kayla Kross

As my primo would say, "que lastima que sea puta."

Alice Eve. She was originally cast in X-Men: First Class, but was later replaced with January Jones. January Jones may be ridiculously hot, but she couldn't act to save her life. Katee Sackoff would also be a good choice, although recent reports claim she is involved in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Nikki Benz

Heh, we don't necessarily need a porn star to play Emma Frost. We just need a girl with a seductive, snobby personality.
