Horrible news of the day: Katy Perry is interested in playing Rachael in Blade Runner 2

Jul. 30, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Katy Perry and Sean Young

Pop star Katy Perry is out promoting THE SMURFS 2 (she does the voice of Smurfette), but the singer is interested in live-action roles as well and in an interview with The Metro she drops this bit of information on our heads that is sure to make some fans of BLADE RUNNER blow a mental gasket:

With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films. I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in Blade Runner 2, if Ridley would just call! I think I'd enjoy playing the opposite of what you expect.

Normally I don't have a problem a singer or musician trying their hand at acting, but I dislike Katy Perry's music and her personality. Sure she does look a bit like the character (and has some sweet boobs), but that's it. We have no idea if Sean Young's character from BLADE RUNNER will even appear in the movie since there have been so little plot details released for the planned sequel, but if she does Katy Perry is the last f*cking person I want to play the part. This probably has no chance of happening, but I still find it fairly terrifying and I hope Ridley Scott is smart and does not give Perry a call. Ever.

Extra Tidbit: Would any of you be OK with this? Should Katy Perry be given a chance if the role is there or should she just stay away from the project?

Cmon now fellas...

I bet she would be thrilled if she just got the audition. No need to put her down for being a fan of great sci-fi like Blade Runner. If Ridley wants to give her a shot, he will. If not, no harm done, she was just answering a question.

Fuck it there's no chance of it happening but I'd be down, Ridley Scott directs good performances regardless of the actors quality.

In a surprising coup, Katy Perry's boobs have been cast as the Voight-Kampff device. The entire plot of Blade Runner 2 now revolves around a particularly long replicant interrogation scene where everyone involved has to stare at the Voight-Kampff device for 2 solid hours.

This isn't news. It's a celebrity saying they want to do something. Nothing will come of it, just like nothing came from that Selena Gomez interview where she said she wants to work with Fincher and Scorsese.

Stick to what you do best (and I use that term loosely)

Sorry Katy, stick to the mindless pop-dribble you keep spewing out, and keep giving peepshows (boobs!).....

If somebody saying she wants a role is enough to be considered horrible news, you must have a horrible life!

Also, not liking someone's public personna or the music she makes aren't reasons to not cast someone. If she can't act, or if she isn't right for the part, then that makes sense but leave the other bullshit to TMZ.

Boobs

She knows that's a majority of her appeal. She had a quote recently because I guess Pattinson cheated on Kristen Stewart with Perry and Perry's reaction: "What can I say? I have an actual pair of tits. Can you blame him?" or something to that effect. And while I think Stewart is more naturally beautiful (i.e. doesn't need a pound of cover up to hide skin blemishes) there is no denying Katy Perry's AWESOM BEWBAGE!

There's some people who, if they were trying to build a perfect artificial woman, would end up making something not unlike Katy Perry, so whereas there are many, many actresses who deserve the role more than her, in some ways it's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard.

I don't mind her at all. Their is much worse music out there then hers and she is sexy as hell. Will she get the part? Probably not. Do I give her credit for wanting to branch out more into something more serious than a Smurfs film? Absolutely.

Hopefully this movie stays in development hell!

But I'm not going to pass judgement over someone who's only been the voice in a Smurf's movie. Actors can branch out, same thing goes for singers. Look at Jamie Foxx, Will Smith, Bruce Willis, Mark Wahlberg come to mind as singers/rappers who started acting more and more. If anything, at least Perry looks like Rachael.

I see nothing at all wrong with this. I wish her great luck. Katy Perry looks similar to Sean Young. She has talent and I am rooting for her. I do not agree with the editorial comment by Jesse Giroux, everyone is entitled to their opinions, I just politely disagree with the column. No need to try and scuttle Katy's career aspirations. Her career so far has been harmless fun.

On The Fence

While I do hate the 'Smurf' movie (obviously, I haven't seen the sequel, but presume it to be bad), and that is Ms. Perry's biggest film role to date, I am not immediately against this. She was pretty damn funny on HIYM, and this could turn out to be a Heath Ledger/ Joker thing. Everyone made fun of that casting, and now that performance stands as one of the best of the best for, not just comic book films, but film at large as well.

However, she would have to go to great lengths to prove to

However, she would have to go to great lengths to prove to us movie fans that she could be capable of doing such a thing. A major supporting role in a dramatic film, or some such, and presuming she's good in hypothetical movie, would be a good place to start.

This is no way the same thing as the Heath Ledger/Joker thing...Ledger was an actual actor and Perry is not.

That was a stupid comparison.

That is a horrible fucking idea! Nothing against her, but if she wants to get into acting, stick with comedies and move into dramas. Stay away from action and action franchises, especially something as classic as Blade Runner. Looking at that picture of Rachael, I would say either Mary Louise Parker or Evangeline Lily for the role.

Obviously it'll never happen. Ridley can get whatever Oscar-caliber actors he wants to be in his movies (my vote for a female is-she-or-isn't-she-a-replicant? Eva Green.) So in that context I'm really more impressed that Katy Perry's a Blade Runner fan.

But lets not pretend Sean Young ever blew us away with her acting.
