If Marissa Faireborn appeared in TF4, who should play her?

Postby Rodimus Prime » Thu Dec 22, 2011 6:12 am

As the title says, this is just speculation. Assuming Shia sticks to his word and won't come back, we can safely guess Carly won't be back either. But who knows. If that will be the case, I still think a lead male and female character is needed, and if the story will be more Transformers-oriented, Marissa Faireborn would be a very good choice. I am not sure how important a character she was in any cartoon series, but she wasn't around much in the comics. Being in the Earth Defense Command, she would be a useful character. If she does make an appearance, what actress do you think would play her well?

Image

Personally, I think a character like this requires a woman who's more athletic than chock full of acting talent, and has the look to pull off a military leader. Therefore, my choices are:

Gina Carano
Image

Angelina Jolie
Image

I understand she's an obscure character, and a lot of you probably don't even know of her, but I thought she would make a good character for the new movies, especially if the stories are more Transformers-oriented.

We should go for a commanding presence and voice, not just eye candy:

I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

I do agree with that statement, but even though Sigurney Weaver held up well over the years, she's still a bit too old.

Says who? Just slather a million dollars' worth of CGI all over her face like in Avatar, and everything's cool.

Also, does anyone recall the name of the raging uber-bitch "Do I look like a ma'am?" government lady in DotM?

EDIT: I asked myself, "who reminds me of a thirty-years-younger Sigourney Weaver?", and my mind immediately jumped to this woman:

Image

Ya?

As for the CGI, I think it would cost less to put a lesser-known actress in the role and not use any effects.

If memory serves, I think she's called Maria Bello. IRRC, she stars in her own cop series, where her character's a detective with a penchant for hats.

Actually, I'd like the answer to that as well. But middle aged? She doesn't look that old.

She's not even very good looking. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess...

And she can't be called an actress anyway. The only acting she's ever done was her wedding.

I like both choices. If I had to select a favorite it would be jessica alba Because she is taller,has more curves & I like her hair+skin tone better.

So the men have to act, but the women get a free pass? You run up and down on this forum about how Shia acting has ruined the movies, but Kim who is 10 times worse would get a free pass cause she looks good? Come'on man. You really believe that? I mean I understand wanting a pretty face and body to look at. I'm all for it. But everyone should be held to the same standards.

Anyhow, i still think Scarlet Johanson would fit the bill just right. Or even Rachel Nicholous.

I personally think Danneel Harris from One Tree Hill. Not only is she a redhead, like the G1 counterpart, but she's also older than the stereotypical '20 year old model' cliche the movies are using - as would be appropriate for someone with the rank of Captain.

It's not a matter of "I need to fap to this". It's a matter of "who can be the romantic interest of whoever plays Spike, but can also protect the whole damn wold from giant transforming alien robots".
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.
