The DEADPOOL film is moving along in production and has started testing actresses to play the female lead opposite of Ryan Reynolds, who will star as the mercenary Wade Wilson. So far we know that the movie many of us thought would never see the light of day will be directed by Tim Miller (in his directorial debut) from a script by Rhett Reese (ZOMBIELAND) and Paul Wernick (G.I. JOE: RETALIATION). What we don’t know of course is who from this now released short list of actresses will take the role?

The actresses being considered are from left to right: Morena Baccarin (Homeland), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf). As well as pictured below left to right: Rebecca Rittenhouse (The Red Band Society), Sarah Greene (Vikings) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow).

It looks like a great mix of actresses to take on the role, I only wish we know what role that was exactly. I’m not well versed enough in the world of DEADPOOL to throw a guess out there as to whom they might be casting here. I will say that Morena Baccarin, who recently started playing Dr. Leslie Thompkins on Gotham, has my attention.

What do you think about the actresses in the running? Any thoughts as to what role the selected would take on?

DEADPOOL currently has a February 12, 2016 release date and will start production next month.

Rebecca Rittenhouse

Rebecca Rittenhouse is a good actress that hasn't been splashed across all sorts of movies and TV. Casting her would let moviegoers see the character more than the actress or her previous on-screen personas. Much as I love Morena Baccarin, I'd see her performance colored in my eyes by her other well known characters.

Why the fuck do we need a female lead???

The only female that matters is Death. Unless they make one of these ugly ass skanks Death, they are wasting their time. She shouldn't even be in the movie for long. This needs to be Deadpools adventures, not Deadpool and a tacked on female love story.

For those that havent read the script

The script leaked online and has made its rounds. It's not hard to find if you look around a little. Im sure the filming script will have significant differences, but still it gives an idea of what this movie will get into at the very least.

The female lead is a prostitute that Deadpool falls for. They bond over how fucked up their lives have been up until they meet, and to be honest it only gets more fucked up. Anyway, the actress portraying her will have to be "crackhead-sexy". She is a

Anyway, the actress portraying her will have to be "crackhead-sexy". She is a whore with cigarette burns and a drug problem. But in another life she couldve been a supermodel. So that gives you an idea of what they are looking for in casting.

I would rather see an actress from the bottom row of three then the top row of three.

Not De Gouw, though. Cerealkiller182 is right. Her performance on Arrow was pretty terrible.
