Casting Ideas for Female Sin City Characters

Robert Rodriguez once said that he wanted to film all of Frank Miller's Sin City stories, and here are my ideas for casting some of the female characters.

Ava Lord (A Dame to Kill For)- Angelina Jolie



Even though filming has started on Si n City: A Dame to Kill For, and it already has a release date, we still don't know who will be playing the film's title character, the dame to kill for, Mrs. Ava Lord. I have stated on my blog several times that the only actress who I believe can do the character justice is Angelina Jolie. Apparently the part was written with her in mind, as well it should have been. But...there is still no news on the subject, so I am just going to keep writing about how much I want her in this role.

Esther (Hell and Back) -Kerry Washington

 

 
Maybe it is just because I chose a great picture of Kerry Washington, but it looks like she could have been used as a model for Frank Miller's drawing of Esther. Not only does she have the looks for it, but the lovely Ms. Washington also has to acting chops to play Wallace's lonely love interest in the Sin City story Hell and Back.
 
Delia (Blue Eyes) -Marion Cotillard
 


Blue Eyes is one of my favorite Sin City yarns, so I put a lot of thought into who would make a great Delia. Despite her angelic face, her roles in movies like A Very Long Engagement and The Dark Knight Rises prove that Marion Cotillard makes a great femme fatale. This is very important, since Delia is an assassin who proves her dedication to her work by killing the man that she loves.

Mary (The Babe Wore Red) -Christina Hendricks

 
Unlike a lot of female Sin City characters, Mary is more of a damsel in distress type role. What makes her interesting is that she gets into all of this trouble the night before she takes her vows to become a nun. The only real requirement that this character has is that the actress is drop dead gorgeous, and while there are several gorgeous actresses, I think that the beautiful Ms. Christina Hendricks would be a great edition to the Sin City series.
 
Amy (Daddy's Little Girl)- Emily Browning
 


 
This is another instance where there is an actress who looks just like the character. I think that Emily Browning would be great as a young woman who is not as sweet and innocent as she looks.
