Rule 63 Re-casting in Movies and Television
From: DrunkenSneech , 1 months, post #1
In the last couple days, I got an idea for a multiple-transformation novella. I've already roughed-out most of the character transformations, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here for possibly (likely) better ideas.

So, if you could take memorable male characters from television and movies, and then recast them as women, which ones would you pick? I'm primarily looking for characters from action, scifi, fantasy, horror and not the more "passive" Oscar-bait and prestige roles; villains and heroes are equally valid, and the character doesn't have to be human. I'm not looking to explore the politics of recasting, just treating it as if The Creature from The Black Lagoon, Indy Jones, Mister Hyde, Batman, etc. always were women. (Ignoring for right now that some of these characters already have female versions and analogues.)

Heck, are their already existing female characters that you'd remake/change/tweak to make them better or more memorable than they were depicted?

A lot of superheroes have been recast as female lately. I'd be curious which of those you've seen and like, Sneech.

Anyway, to your question: I think a hot, obnoxious Starlord would be amusing.

Also, (this is cheating since it's already a character but one that's a female version with a different personality), but I'd like to see the humorous She-Hulk who breaks the fourth wall and makes pop cultural references constantly.

Also, if Superman got zapped into a female in front of Lois Lane and it were just awkward and embarrassing.

I think recast was probably my wrong choice of words. Fan communities will often draw up and discuss/argue over how they themselves would cast real-life adaptations of their beloved mangas, anime, comic books, and novels. I meant recast in a similar sense, only who would we (re)cast with women in previously male roles if we could remake some of our favorite films and TV shows? Because a) I like women characters more than men, and b) unfortunately too many women characters aren't active but passive roles.

Like, she'd never do it in a million years, but what would Tropic Thunder be like if RDJ's Kirk Lazarus/Lincoln Osiris was instead recast as a woman played by someone like Emily Blunt? Same no-holds-barred comedic, often offensive, humor as RDJ did it, likely with the added bonus of lampshading the anachronism of a woman in front-line combat in Vietnam. I like RDJ and I think he was great in the role, but how would Blunt take it over-the-top funny?

Or what would The Shadow (1994) be like if Baldwin's Lamont Cranston/The Shadow was instead recast as a woman played by someone like Aisha Tyler? Or Jennifer Connelly? It probably wouldn't fix any of the numerous things wrong with the movie, but I'd damn sure enjoy watching Tyler or Connelly in the role over Baldwin, with the added bonus of female Cranston flirting onscreen with Penelope Ann Miller.

I ask because while I was musing such things, I got an idea for a story about transformations into different female screen roles. Because regardless of where readers (or I) may be aligned on social issues (which definitely isn't what the story is about), I think it could be fun and sexy to imagine transforming into & spending time as characters played by talented (and yes, sexy) actresses.
