Morena Baccarin, Taylor Schilling, and More Testing for DEADPOOL's Female Lead
I'm still sort of shocked at the fact that a Deadpool movie is finally on Fox's release schedule and that after all these years, Ryan Reynolds is still going to play the character. He's the perfect choice for the role, but I honestly didn't expect this to happen after the project fell apart a few years ago. Thankfully that test footage leaked and the studio realized there was enough of a clamor to make this happen, so now it's up to director Tim Miller to ignore the hype and concentrate on delivering a great Deadpool movie.
But Reynolds obviously isn't the only actor who will be appearing in the movie, and now Deadline has a list of actresses who are reportedly testing for the female lead role: Morena Baccarin (Homeland, Firefly), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf, Crush), Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Red Band Society), Sarah Greene (Vikings), and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow). I'm not super familiar with Deadpool's supporting characters, but there are a handful of possibilities if the studio is looking for a "love interest" angle: Siryn, Copycat, and even the female embodiment of Death - though since this is a Fox movie and Death seems to be tied to Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I'm guessing that character won't appear here.
Who would you like to see star in Deadpool, and which character should they play?
