smallville recast  
Over at femslash_land, there is a challenge going on that requires us to make a gender recast picspam of any show/movie. I chose Smallville.



Bridget Regan as Claire Kent/Kala Jor-El

Original Actor: Tom Welling

Explanation: Bridget Regan, as she looks in her role on LotS, fits perfectly for a girl version of Clark. She's beautiful yet has an innocent look that is necessary to play well, the iconic hero that everyone knows. With her dark hair and green eyes, she resembles Tom Welling, which is what I was looking for too.



Evan Rachel Wood as Alexandra "Lex" Luthor

Original Actor: Michael Rosenbaum

Explanation: Evan Rachel Wood has the look I imagine for Lex. She can look seductive yet she seems like she can play someone who is extremely intelligent and manipulative. Plus, she looks great with red hair, which was what Lex was born with.



Brandon Routh as Landon Lang.

Original Actor: Kristin Kreuk

Explanation: While Brandon Routh played a dorky Clark Kent in Superman Returns, there's no denying that he's good looking. I could easily picture him as being the most popular boy in school. He would easily slip into the role of the boy that everyone loves yet is completely good natured and kind. There would be no doubt as to why Claire would have a crush on him!



Jensen Ackles as Louis Lane.

Original actor: Erica Durance

Explanation: This was actually one of the hardest roles to recast, as finding a male Lois was not an easy task. I finally settled on Jensen Ackles. He would do well in the role of a General's son. He can do both intense and laid back. Lois Lane has multiple layers and her male counterpart would be the same way. Jensen has the looks to play Lois and definitely the acting chops. I could easily imagine him as the reporter who will eventually win Super(woman)'s heart.



Reese Witherspoon as Olivia Queen

Original Actor: Justin Hartley

Explanation: Reese Witherspoon is one of my favorite actresses and she would be perfect as the billionaire heiress who is a CEO by day and a hero by night. Oliver Queen is a character that is charming and witty and she would definitely be able to be both. Also, she looks great in green, which is a must.

I didn't do everyone but there are the ones that I did and hopefully I wasn't too off! :)

No Chloe?.. How would you name him?
svgurl: chloesvgurl on May 22nd, 2011 08:01 pm (UTC)
I know, I felt bad for leaving Chloe out, but for the life of me, I couldn't think of an actor who could play boy!Chloe. So I figure she'll still be a girl (and played by Allison) in my show. Claire and Chloe will be BFFs. ;D

How would you name him?
Name who? Chloe? That's another probably I had- I couldn't think of a guy name for Chloe! :\

I approve of "Olivia Queen" so much. Reece is a goddess and I love everything about her. She'd be perfect for that role.

Yay! It's good to hear that I'm not the only one who thought of her. Reese is amazing and I absolutely adore her too. I could easily imagine her playing Olivia Queen! :D

Great choices! I especially like the LEX recast. I'm wondering if she would like being bald though. ;-)

Thanks! I'm glad you liked them.

I'm wondering if she would like being bald though. ;-)
LOL No idea! I can imagine it'd be harder to be bald as a girl and she may wear a wig or something. :D

Hee! Your choices are fantastic and perfectly brain-breaking. Especially Brandon as Lana's counterpart. XD Now I want to ship Landon and Louis. :p Oh! And the guy that played Whitney would make a perfect Chloe.

Hee! Your choices are fantastic and perfectly brain-breaking.
Aww, thanks! I'm glad they're not completely off. XD

Especially Brandon as Lana's counterpart. XD Now I want to ship Landon and Louis. :p
IDK why- I needed someone pretty to play Lana's counterpart and Brandon just came to mind. And hee! I don't blame you for shipping them. They'd be quite hot together. ;D

Oh! And the guy that played Whitney would make a perfect Chloe.
Oh man, I wish I had talked to you sooner! I was killing myself trying to find a boy!Chloe and I just eventually gave up, lol.

What a fun challenge! Love your choices, too. :)

It was quite fun though stressful because I waited till last minute, lol. XD

Love your choices, too. :)
Thank you! I'm glad to know that I wasn't completely off. :)

Aw Brandon Routh...how I love you...even if your career isn't going so well...
svgurl: tom welling amusedsvgurl on May 23rd, 2011 11:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I love Brandon Routh too. He wasn't my ideal Superman but he's cute. It's too bad about his career. I wish he could find something better.
evol_jellybabyx_pixilated_x on May 22nd, 2011 10:14 pm (UTC)
I'd totally watch your show if it was real. I love who you've cast but especially bridget reagan. I looked up some more pics and she would so make a perfect girl!clark ♥

Aww, thanks! :D

I love who you've cast but especially bridget reagan. I looked up some more pics and she would so make a perfect girl!clark ♥
Other people on Twitter introduced me to the idea of Bridget Regan as girl!Clark and once I saw her, I knew she'd be perfect.

Thanks! I'm glad they worked for you. :D

I really liked this genderswap, especially Claire, Lex and Landon! Fabulous job, bb. I would love, love, love to see you do more characters in this verse.
svgurl: clois s8svgurl on May 23rd, 2011 11:57 pm (UTC)
I am happy to hear you think my choices worked.

especially Claire, Lex and Landon!
People on twitter introduced me to the idea of Bridget Regan as girl!Clark and once I saw her, I knew it would work. I found Evan Rachel Wood on the internet and IDK where I came up with Brandon Routh, but it just hit me one day and I went for it. I'm glad to know you liked them too.

Fabulous job, bb. I would love, love, love to see you do more characters in this verse.
Thank you! I was thinking about doing Chloe but I couldn't decide on an actor to play boy!Chloe, lol. IDK if I will do more any time soon but maybe if there is another challenge like this, I'll think about it. :)

ROFLMAO!! You have officially broken my brain, what with all these crossovers! Kahlan/Superman, and Kahlan/Supernatural guy (whatshisface), all in the Smallville universe... LOL. Together they make me confused, but individually I think you're spot on, especially for Lex - love that red hair.
svgurl: clark/lois 'committed'svgurl on May 27th, 2011 01:22 am (UTC)
Oh dear! I didn't mean to break your brain. XD

Kahlan/Superman, and Kahlan/Supernatural guy (whatshisface), all in the Smallville universe... LOL.
Hee! I don't actually watch LotS but someone introduced me to her and she just looked so perfect that I couldn't resist. And yes, there are lot of amusing crossovers, aren't there?

Together they make me confused, but individually I think you're spot on, especially for Lex - love that red hair.
Thanks! I'mg lad you think so. And yeah, I am not sure if Evan Rachel Wood is a natural redhead but she looked so great when I saw a pic of her w/ red hair that I couldn't resist.

FUN!

I love all of your choices. I would definitely watch that show!

I think Chlovis (I know, the name is ugly but it IS a real name) Sullivan should be played by Craig Horner. My secondary choices were Matt Smith and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's hard to think of an actor who exudes light the way Allison Mack does, but at the same time could stand next to Bridget Reagan and not be eclipsed. Reagan would make a fantastic Wonder Woman.

It was definitely a fun challenge, even though I was scratching my head, trying to figure out who to cast. :D

I love all of your choices. I would definitely watch that show!
Thanks! That's very nice to hear. :D

I can't believe Chlovis is a name. Wow. I keep thinking of Chlavis, when I read that though, you know the ship name for Chloe & Davis, lol. Your choices are really interesting, but I would want male!Chloe to be blond, which is why I had such a problem. I considered the kid who plays Sam in Glee but he may look a bit young next to the rest of this cast.

It's hard to think of an actor who exudes light the way Allison Mack does, but at the same time could stand next to Bridget Reagan and not be eclipsed.
Very true. That's why I ended up leaving Chloe out.

Reagan would make a fantastic Wonder Woman.
I agree! She really would.

I love love love your choices for the cast! I want to watch this show now, LOL. I love Evan Rachel Wood as Lex, she just looks the part so prefectly and I think she would play it just as well. And I LOVE Reese Witherspoon as Olivia and that you even found pics with her in green. And I love the idea of Jensen as Lois, so many similair characteristics of Deans are similair to Lois so I think he could defenitely pull it off.

Awesome, awesome job!

Aww, thank you! You're always too nice to me. ♥

I love Evan Rachel Wood as Lex, she just looks the part so prefectly and I think she would play it just as well.
I haven't seen her in anything else but I could imagine she'd do well. I found her when I was looking for pictures of redheaded actresses on the internet.

And I LOVE Reese Witherspoon as Olivia and that you even found pics with her in green.
I just love Reese Witherspoon in general. I was contemplating who to choose for Olivia, and Blake Lively was what I was leaning toward for a while but then she struck me and I had to go for it. I was really excited to find the pictures of her in the green, though I think the one with her surrounded by green silk is my favorite. She looks so pretty.

And I love the idea of Jensen as Lois, so many similair characteristics of Deans are similair to Lois so I think he could defenitely pull it off.
That's what I was thinking too! Though I don't know much about Dean, from what little I do know, it seems he and Lois share a lot of character traits.

Thanks again for taking a look and commenting! I had fun with this challenge. :D
