Too Barbie-ish to be Lara.


CGI film please!

Why ever not? She probably got as much chance as any other actress. Nowt wrong with being keen. Perhaps we should support someone who's a fan of Tomb Raider and is so keen for the role. She has the looks. And though not relevant (sadly), she makes a great horsewoman (saw video on youtube).

@Lukass, how on earth is she too Barbie-ish? She wears make-up? Big deal. She's obviously beginning to make a name for herself. I can't see a reason why she shouldn't at least try for the role.

Well if she gets the part or has the chance to audition for it good for her. In fairness I haven't seen her act.

Well fair enough, but that doesn't make this actress 'barbie-ish' . I guess as it looks like we're getting a live action movie, all we can hope for is a decent actress who looks and sounds and acts as alike Lara as possible (at least however they're directed to do).

I still think that whoever would play Lara, it still would be just parody to Lara. Only CGI Lara is the right one imho.

Did you think Angelina's portrayal was a parody?

Found a video of her using an English accent.

I could tell it's a faked accent but still better than Angelina's accent.

She's a good choice compared to some other names tossed about though.
