Who Should Play Rainmaker?

So we've all heard by know that Megan Fox's dream role is to be a Native lesbian superhero. She said that she would love to be Sarah Rainmaker of 'Gen 13'. This Apache character from the comic series is able to manipulate weather and the movement of water with her thoughts, as well as being good at combat. Rainmaker is also a peace-seeking activist.

“She’s a Native American and I have a little bit of that blood in me,” she said. “It would be a bit of a stretch – but if Jake Gyllenhaal can be the Prince of Persia, I think that I can do that.”

How about we not repeat a history of Hollywood casting white people into ethnic roles (anybody remember Micky Rooney as Mr. Yunioshi?). I'm not saying no one can play an ethnicity outside of their own, but casting obviously Caucasian people as playing other ethnicities is not a step toward inclusion in Hollywood.

My first vote is for Q'orianka Kilcher, and yes I know she's not Cherokee and of Indigenous Peruvian ancestry, but I think she makes a real fit. She has proven she's strong enough as an actor to carry a lead role in a Hollywood film, she's young, beautiful and yes, an activist.

My second vote is for Melanie McLaren, an Ojibway actor also of French descent. Her role as Jolene Peltier in the indie flick 'Tkaronto' won her the Best Actress Award at the 2008 Talking Stick Film Festival. She is very sultry on screen and I am sure she could take on any physical challenges this role could give her.

My third vote (last but not least) is for Crystle Lightning. This Cree actor is the daughter of director and actor Georgina Lightning and is used to being on set, as she has already been working for over sixteen years. This 29-year-old beauty has serious sex appeal and a little bit of edge that might be just what is required of a Rainmaker. I mean her last name is already perfect for the role, isn't it?

Who do you think would be perfect for this role if it came to fruition?

Another pick for Lighting. It would be nice if this project got the greenlight.
