- TheBBPS nominates who they want to play who in the coming fourth installment of the popular Resident Evil film franchsie, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, as follows:
Whether or not you like her character, this one's already been confirmed. The sultry Milla Jovovich will be reprising her role as the sexy asskicking genetically engineered supersoldier, Alice.
Since as of now Alice has been the only confirmed returning character, everyone from here on is either rumored or made up by yours truly.
Fans of the films may have noticed that Jill Valentine was surprisingly absent from Resident Evil: Extinction. In fact, it was like she never even existed. Apparently, due to scheduling conflicts with the dreadful Eragon film, Sienna had to decline when asked to reprise her role as Jill.
For Extinction, the writers completely left Jill out of the story to make it possible to bring her back in later films. And since I think it's safe to assume that we won't be seeing more Eragon in the near future, there's a good chance Sienna will be returning in Afterlife.
Leon S. Kennedy
Rumors have been circulating for awhile now that Resident Evil 4's main protagonist may be appearing in the fourth Resident Evil film. If Leon does join the cast of Afterlife, this character will be key in the success of the film (at least for fans).
I think the perfect actor to portray everyone's favorite witty hero is Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, Smallville). His looks, mannerisms, voice, and past films (which tend to have either horror or supernatural themes) make him the perfect actor to play Leon.
If Leon's in this film, then you can expect to see Ada in it as well. Finding an actress that could play Ms. Wong was fairly difficult work, but I think I may have found a very good fit: Kelly Hu.
Kelly Hu looks a lot like Ada, has some horror film experience (Friday the 13th Part VIII, Dead Space: Downfall), and quite a bit of experience with video games (Afro Samurai, Command & Conquer, Terminator: Salvation).
When searching for the ideal candidate to play Mr. Redfield, I tried searching for actors that had small heads attached to bizarrely muscular bodies. Apparently, there aren't many people that actually look like that, so when that failed I decided to see who fans thought should play Chris should he appear in the next film.
One of my favorites was Chris Evans, who looks very similar to Chris, and is actually a really talented actor (remove Fantastic Four from your memory, replace it with Sunshine, and you'll agree). Some honorable mentions include: Jesse Metcalfe (too pretty), Clive Owen (too English), and Charlie Clausen (too obscure).
This one was easy: Karen Dyer. Ms. Dyer voiced Sheva Alomar, and after meeting her at the Resident Evil 5 launch party back in March I think she would be perfect for the role.
