Bob Schroeck Wrote:(And if anyone has any ideas for teenaged actresses from the period to play Lita and Raye, I'm open to suggestions.)

Wikipedia's list of people born in 1982 has 11,625 entries... a few too many to just wade through the list and pick appropriate actresses.

Their list of American child actresses has 1,190 entries.

Maybe somebody with some time could make a list of everyone who's on both lists?

I'll have to look it up, but there's a way to search for category intersections on Wikipedia. That'll be quicker than compiling such a list by hand.

2011 - A Certain Magical Railgun (animated, Japanese) -- Chronicles the adventures of Misaka Mikoto, a prodigious young sorceress with unprecedented mastery of the Lightning element, as she attends Tristania Academy of Magical Arts. One of only a handful of students to have achieved Pentagonal mastery of her element, she is accompanied in her adventures by Shirai Kuroko (a Square-level mistress of space/time magics with an over-the-top schoolgirl crush on Mikoto), Uiharu Kazari (a skilled researcher with Dot-level skills in both Fire and Ice magics), and Saten Ruiko (talentless at magic, but quite capable nonetheless).

2012 - A Certain Scientific Index (animated, Japanese) -- This spin-off of the wildly successful 'Magical Railgun' tells the story of Kamijou Touma, the mysterious boy who turns up on several occasions in Mikoto's tale, who is somehow immune to magics of all sorts. Touma is accompanied in these side tales by an odd young girl who has memorized entire libraries of the darkest of scientific researches, and is in hiding from several unscrupulous researchers who wish to make use of her knowledge - Agatha Heterodyne.

Stanley Kubrick's Lolita (1962), starring James Mason, Shelley Winters, and Hayley Mills as the title character.

From the same universe, the complete ouevre of Annette Funicello, whose resentment of Walt Disney's attempt to channel her acting career into "wholesome" roles led her to become the single greatest sex symbol of the 1960s and 1970s, outshadowing Bardot, Andress and Welch.

Break Of Day, by Stephanie Meyer. From the back cover: "Century-old vampire Edward Cullen is tired. Tired of the constant battle with the Thirst, tired of hiding from the sunlight, tired above all else of never being able to settle down and make a real friend. He never wanted to be turned, and the one thing he wants above all else is to die the natural death denied him by his well-meaning 'blood-father' in a tuberculosis hospital so long ago. But what's left of his Catholic faith has always kept him from resorting to the mortal sin of suicide... until now.

"Because now there's a girl. A girl who really, truly loves him for who he is. And he loves her back. But how can you love someone, build a life with them, when you hate yourself and want to die?
"

Reviews in the first few pages praise the novel's "touching and sensitive portrayal of a fundamentally good but deeply wounded man", the "strongly-voiced, relatable and immensely likeable character of Bella Swann, a girl who's a far cry from the usual rather flat romance protagonist" and "a wonderfully sensitive, nuanced and non-judgemental portrayal of mental illness and its consequences".

I just noticed that I never came through on the "category intersection" thing: MediaWiki's built-in search accepts terms that start with "incategory:", which does what you might think. So searching for incategory:"American child actresses" incategory:"1982 births" yields a search result that lists all the pages for American child actresses born in 1982, like so. It seems that there are only twenty-four, which would be considerably easier to grovel through than the thousand-plus mentioned as the count of notable 1982 births. If we want to cast a slightly wider temporal net, there appears to be thirty-two American child actresses born in 1981, and twenty-six born in 1983.(Edited to fix issues caused by quotes in the URL.)

So... sticking only with the first set, who could we cast as Rei and Makoto? I'll admit that I don't recognize most of the names on that list, but doing a quick once-over, I've found photos of Elisabeth Moss that suggest she could at least pull of Rei's look. Then again, with the expanded list, we could have Natalie Portman as Rei...

Hmmmmm... Looking at the expanded set, I see Jessica Alba was 17 at the time and between movies... but is she tall enough to play Lita (Makoto)?

She's 5'7" -- an inch taller than Makoto's canonical height. and probably was about that height at 17. The question is, were the other girls short enough that there's a visible difference? I didn't cast Kirsten Dunst and Ariana Richards with height in mind, unfortunately...

True enough, that. So... Natalie Portman as Rei, and Jessica Alba as Makoto, then? If we agree on that, then... time to cast Mamoru. And Naru!
EDIT:  Amber Tamblyn as Naru?

What, you want Molly to look like Dawn Summers's friend Janice? Might make for a throwaway line in the Buffy step if Dawn calls Usagi "Serena"...

Heh. But I'm thinking the live-action film won't be a thing in the Buffyverse. Otherwise I'll have to deal with Dawn thinking Usagi looks like Kirsten Dunst, and things will get messier than I need.

Star Wars from a timeline where George Lucas got Toshiro Mifune to play Obi-wan Kenobi (IIRC, he wanted Mifune for the role in OTL).

Star Trek Season 3, from a world where Harlan Ellison was hired as Script Editor, and the budget per episode was higher than Season 2, instead of lower.

The actors might be different, the dialogue might be better (or worse!) than OTL's, the visuals slightly different to compensate for different cultural norms, but the overall story and major plot beats are always the same. It's always set in the post-apocalyptic future, the gun is always good, the penis is always evil and Sean Connery (or the local equivalent) will always wear an International Safety Orange diaper and matching bandoleer through most of the movie.

And in a not-entirely-desired case of convergence, there is one Zardoz starring Skysaber.
