The purpose of this thread is to discuss who should play Evil-Lyn (and only Evil-Lyn) in the new MOTU film. Each week I will do a casting call thread that will focus on 1 MOTU character, to discuss in depth.
We all know Evil Lyn will be essential in the plot of the new MOTU movie, and casting her to appease the fans, and entice new viewers will be key to the success of the film. Evil-Lyn will be integral to the plot, and can bring so much to whatever story is finally hashed out. Below are my top choices for our favorite dark sorceress, evil witch, magical warrior Goddess, whatever you wish to call her.
Melinda Clarke is no stranger to playing vicious, two faced women. A veteran of villains and the sci-fi genre, her credits include a mix of movie and television. She has much hidden potential, and much like Meg Foster, could potentially be a wicked and memorable Evil-Lyn.
2000 The Pretender
2003-2007 The O.C.
2010 Ghost Whisperer
2010 The Vampire Diaries
Dina Meyer is talented and beautiful, and quite versatile in her roles. She is not afraid to take it all off (Starship Troopers), and get her hands dirty (SAW series, and as much as I loathe SAW, I know it has fans here). She fits comfortably into her roles, and could surprise is all if given the material. Dina could just be the diamond in the rough for this role.
1995 Johnny Mnemonic
1997 Starship Troopers
2002 Star Trek Nemesis
2005 Saw II
2006 Saw III
Charlize Theron is a beautiful, seasoned actress with an impressive portfolio, and a powerful onscreen presence. She has been in several sci-fi themed films and lights up the screen, portraying memorable female heroes and villains. She also has enough star power to bring in a new audience, without the budget suffering as it would with a much higher paid actress.
1999 The Astronaut's Wife
1999 The Cider House Rules
2000 The Legend of Bagger Vance
2003 The Italian Job
2005 Aeon Flux
2012 Snow White
Angelina Jolie, she is not my first choice, as I would not want the entire movie to be judged as per her participation. That being said, she works well as a strong female lead, bringing experience and star power with very impressive credits. Her name alone will bring in an audience, and ultimately that is what this movie will need. It appears that Ms. Jolie will be starring in an upcoming movie about a very well known Disney sorceress, so we will get a taste of what she can do. However, if given the choice between paying Angelina $20 million, or having an equally comfortable actress for $5 million and having more money to go around, I would choose someone else.
Too many to list.
Bridgette Nielson is a veteran and respected starlette, someone that 80s fans would appreciate, and another lady who is no stranger to playing loved, and reviled women, she combines quality acting and experience. Bridgette could be an amazing choice to fill the role of Evil-Lyn as she has decades of fans who would love to see her in a starring role again.
Red Sonja (1985)
Rocky IV (1985)
Beverly Hills Cop II (1987)
Chained Heat II (1993)
The Hustle (2008)
The Fish (2009)
Grindhouse 2 (2012)

He-BroI need to sell 5 more items on eBay before the 20th so I have a ton of stuff on there right now, some things starting at 25 cents.
Buy a Pookie or a Castle trap door in my My Shapeways Store - also some cool custom accessories like the Diamond Ray of disappearance, TrapJaw's Attachments, Coridite Crystals, Horn of Evil, Tytus Hammer, etc...
I would say one of these people
Tough call, Evil-Lyn is a complex character that (imo) requires strength, evil, & subtlety.
Gong Li perhaps?
Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.
If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.
Lana Parilla should play Evil-lyn. She does really good as Regina/the Evil Queen in Once Upon a Time.
Lena Headey. Her villain role in Dredd was great.
Angelina Jolie would rock! So would the woman that plays The Wicked Queen/Regina on Once Upon A Time....or even the Actress that plays Pam on Tru Blood.
I think that Evil Lyn was imagined as Asiatic looking woman based on her Filmation skin color as well as overyellowed figure color, and very unique eyes among other MOTU women characters. For some reason all Asiatic looking people represented as MOTU figures (Jitsu, Ninjor and possible Evil Lyn) were among evil warriors. :/
So I would like to see some beautiful Asiatic actress as Evil Lyn.
Like slackrguy suggested Gong Li, or maybe Lucy Liu...
I would love to see Idina Menzel as Evil-Lyn! Her face is perfect!

Kate Beckinsale...enough said!
I think Bingbing Li would make a nice Evil lyn http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0508356/ she was ada wong in the recent resevil movie but she also played the white haired witch in the forbidden Kingdom. I know some may say she's to young to play lyn. but I think she'd be perfect
From Prison Break fame Jodi Lyn O'Keefe would be nice =)

Olivia Wilde as Evil-Lyn is an interesting idea -- but I wouldn't be surprised if the next Tron movie and the MOTU movie go into active production around the same time which means Wilde would be gearing up to play Quorra again.
Courtney Cox, really flip it around. I kid, I kid, I believ Charlize Theron has really been on fire lately, either way she needs to be cunning, loyal to the point of her own life and fierce.
