Deadline is reporting that Morena Baccarin (Homeland) along with several other actresses are testing for the lead female roll opposite Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool Movie due out in 2016.
2oth Century Fox has made test deals with a small group of actresses for the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool, based on the character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Morena Baccarin, who played the long-suffering wife of POW-turned-terrorist Brody in Showtime’s Homeland and who also starred in V; Taylor Schilling, from Orange Is The New Black and who was just see at Sundance in The Overnight; Crystal Reed from Teen Wolf and Crush; and Rebecca Rittenhouse, who made a splash in the Fox series The Red Band Society.
It is early to guess at who the actresses could be testing for, but two of the possible characters are Dr. Betty, who first appeared in Deadpool Merc With a Mouth #1 or possibly (especially from looking at the picture above) Domino who first appeared in X-Force #11. Any other female Deadpool characters that they could possibly be testing for, let us know.
