Who should play Harley Quinn?

Actresses from different backgrounds and of different ages that we think would make a good Harley.
We tried to make some unique suggestions.

Our ultimate Harley choice is at the end of the list.

Kaley Cuoco

Current gig:
The Big Bang Theory
(televison)
Past roles that show Harley potential:
Perhaps her short stint on Charmed, but nothing in particular.
Negatives: 
Possibly too cute. Might not be able to muster enough of The Crazy.
Notes:
She might be a good choice, but we’re not completely convinced.

Sarah Brown

Current gig:
Days of our Lives
Past roles that show Harley potential:
Roles as Carly Benson Quartermaine Corinthos and Claudia Zacchara, both on General Hospital
Negatives:
Haven’t seen her in much outside of soaps (except a small role on Birds of Prey)
Notes: 
Looks great in a suit for Dr. Quinzell scenes. If you caught her as Claudia Zacchara on GH, you know what we’re talking about. Besides, one of the greatest heroines of all time started in soaps — Sarah Michelle Gellar of Buffy fame got her break as Susan Lucci’s daughter on All My Children.

 

Cameron Diaz

Current gig:
…We don’t actually know.
Past roles that show Harley potential:
Combine her roles in Charlie’s Angels (remember the scene where she dances to Sir Mix-A-Lot?) and Vanilla Sky and you have Harley
Negatives:
We’d rather they pick someone a little more “out-of-the-box.” Plus, we haven’t quite forgiven her for The Mask.
Notes: 
If it has to be someone really established, this would be an acceptable choice.

 

Amanda Seyfried

Current gig:
Movies and stuff. A lot of romantic comedies that we don’t watch.
Past roles that show Harley potential: 
Mean Girls, Jennifer’s Body, Red Riding Hood

Negatives:
She’s Amanda Seyfriend. Plus, she’s usually the good girl. But we think it could work.
Notes:
Look at those Manson lamps! Seyfried definitely has the elastic face and expressive eyes.

 

Fairuza Balk

Current gig: 
Still acting in movies, but best known for her 90s work
Past roles that show Harley potential:
Wayward witch Nancy Downs in The Craft.
Negatives:
Can’t see any.
Notes:
Her raspy voice and facial expressions lend themselves to The Crazy.

 

Emma Stone

Current gig: 
In a new movie every ten minutes or so.
Past roles that show Harley potential: 
Hosting two episodes of SNL plus a tiny but hilarious role in Friends with Benefits  (“JOHNFUCKINGMAYER”)
Negatives:
Already signed on to the new Spiderman franchise.
Notes: 
Great comedic timing and definitely not afraid to look insane if it works for the role. Distinctive speaking voice.

 

 

 

BUT OUR FAVOURITE IS….

Pauley Perette

Current gig: 
NCIS  (plus stints as director, producer, published writer, poet, photographer, spoken-word artist and singer/songwriter, as well as being a civil rights advocate)
Past roles that show Harley potential:
Life in general.
Negatives:
None!
Notes: 
Just load YouTube and watch two seconds of her as Abby Sciuto on NCIS and you’ll be sold. In fact, watch this:

(Edit: there was an adorable video of her dancing the Charleston, but it got removed)

And now look at these photos:
