THOR Star Jaimie Alexander Expresses Interest In Playing Lara Croft!

<i>THOR</i> Star Jaimie Alexander Expresses Interest In Playing Lara Croft!

The beautiful star of Thor has revealed her interest in playing the iconic character on the big screen and talks a little about how she would portray Lara Croft...

In a recent interview with Movieline, the actress who plays Sif in Marvel Studios blockbuster THOR, revealed that she has her sights set on a few other action orientated roles including iconic video game character, Lara Croft! Here are a few excerpts from her interview with the site, and you can read more by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

"I've obviously been hearing about a Tomb Raider reboot, which I think would be pretty awesome — Lara Croft. Anything that's very physical. ... I would love to pursue Lara Croft."

"I'm not going to try and be Angelina Jolie. She's her own woman, and she did a fantastic job as Lara Croft. If that opportunity arises for me, then I would put my own spin on Lara Croft. There's no way I would try and copy what she did. I think that's a huge mistake with actors and actresses who are taking on a role that was previously done by someone else."

What do you guys think? Would Jaimie make a good Lara Croft in the recently rumored reboot? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

With an all star cast which includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Thor is OUT NOW.

For gods sake.
She's annoying me now. She just keeps throwing popular characters out there since she knows her fanbase will go crazy and then she'll get offers.

Her ego is getting too big. Love her as an actress, think she's gorgeous, but she needs to calm down.

Olivia Wilde:

RABB1T - 5/10/2011, 3:50 PM
She did rock it as Sif, I like it. I enjoy the new revamping of Lara Croft. Tits arent what defines her haha. Its her courage, so if they do that. BOOM! its all good.
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 3:52 PM
i like Jaimie Alexander but i doubt she can pull of a British accent well
HelaGood - 5/10/2011, 3:52 PM
Jaimie was AWESOME!!! but not right for Lara.


Ven0m - 5/10/2011, 3:53 PM
Sure she is hott as hell. Tits doesnt always make it or break it. Olivia Wilde is a hell ya too ;)
CherryBomb - 5/10/2011, 3:58 PM
If people want boobs, then Kelly Brook, plus, she's already British

HelaGood - 5/10/2011, 4:01 PM
Rhona is English too!
marvel72 - 5/10/2011, 4:03 PM
yeah she'd make a good lara croft,but the tits need to be bigger.
chuckg313 - 5/10/2011, 4:03 PM
yeah i agree not right for laura..and she should have been dressed sexier in Thor at least for a scene or two...
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 4:04 PM
forget Olivia Wilde shes no Lara Croft too damn skinny

Hayley Atwell for Lara Croft :P

marvel72 - 5/10/2011, 4:07 PM
@ jazzman

good call,i love her.
LordHuck - 5/10/2011, 4:14 PM
OH i am sorry Does Laura Croft have an A -cup now? Pass
nuck82 - 5/10/2011, 4:16 PM
its called a boob job!! she can totaly do it if wants to!!! suck it!
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 4:18 PM

no fake boobs we like the real thing.
CherryBomb - 5/10/2011, 4:19 PM

@Jazzman of course she'll bulk up for the role like Angelina Jolie did.
Did you see Angelina before? she was sooo skinny until she got the Lara Croft part.
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 4:20 PM

this chick wont bulk up plus i dont she can pull of a British accent. even Angelina Jolie accent was not good enough.
Sto0pidpenguinpro - 5/10/2011, 4:21 PM
I can see her doing this. As much as I love Olivia Wilde as an actress and a smoking hot lady, she looks TOO pretty to be Lara Croft. Lara is supposed to be hot, but gritty and "hardened", if you will, also. I think Jaimie would do a great job. As for her boobs, it really doesn't matter to me. The reboot of the Tomb Raider game franchise's new Lara Croft looks much less "pretty" and more like a normal human, and she doesn't have D-cup tits.
CherryBomb - 5/10/2011, 4:31 PM
@jazzman She's got bigger muscles than me XD and I go the gym like, 3 times a week. Think of what she'd look like after going through compulsory boot camp ..
Hayley's body type is a little too curvey and frumpy for my liking :/ I think she's amazing, but I don't know if I'll be convinced of her being a kick-ass, dangerous action heroine

MovieTheaterLad - 5/10/2011, 4:36 PM
She just played an Asgardian warrior. I have absolutely no issue with her playing a character like Lara Croft.
tazmaniak - 5/10/2011, 4:38 PM
It's kinda funny that this is supposed to be a reboot/origin story featuring a younger Lara than the previous films, but the actresses being thrown around are actually older than Jolie when she did the first Tomb Raider.
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 4:41 PM

curvey are better woman and they can kickass. all the woman who model Lara Croft had curve. Olivia Wilde is too skinny it looks too strange when she hold a gun and fighting.

Olivia Wilde is like Zoe Saldana shes too fricking skinny doing action flicks.
CherryBomb - 5/10/2011, 4:44 PM
@jazzman Zoe is like, freakishly skinny, I'll give you that.
But it's like Iron Man 2. ScarJo was not convincing at all doing the kind of stunts and martial arts she did, it was ridiculous. They were initially going to cast the more slender and taller Emily, who would've pulled it off.

Don't get me wrong, power to the curves.
jazzman - 5/10/2011, 4:48 PM

i dont think ScarJo was not convincing cause she has curve shes just not a good actress at all.
CherryBomb - 5/10/2011, 4:51 PM

@CherryBomb True, she is terrible at delivering lines, but when delivering the stunts she was equally bad.
But I do think it had something to do with her body type also. & Lara Croft is stereotypically tall and slender.
nuck82 - 5/10/2011, 4:51 PM
a boob is a boob is a boob, real or fake
TANKGIRL - 5/10/2011, 5:07 PM
HelaGood@ HELL GOD NO too old for role

Gemma simply cannot act

Olivia too skinny
NeoBaggins - 5/10/2011, 5:12 PM
Let's see. Tomb Raider, a movie not to be taken seriously in the first place. Jaimie Alexander; attractive, sweet, nice physical shape and just came off of an awesome action movie. Yeah, why not. I might think about seeing it if she's in it. Not really a role they're going to craft and think deeply about anyway.

And Angela Jolie didn't even look like Laura Craft. At all. But the first one was watchable at the time.
croniccris - 5/10/2011, 5:14 PM
i'm with nuck as long as the chick can act her way outta a forbidden temple and she has some knockers to boot i'm in...
mgeoff88 - 5/10/2011, 5:17 PM
I think Jaimie Alexander is great, but she's not right for the part. I would suggest Rhona Mitra if they weren't making this movie an reboot/origin movie(younger Lara Croft). I think Gemma Aterton, Emily Blunt, and Olivia Wilde would be good choices.
SeaSerpentine - 5/10/2011, 5:23 PM
Sounds hot.
Growler - 5/10/2011, 5:27 PM
If anyone can play this role, it's Angelina.

She's still young enough to pull it off and can do a credible English accent.

Why fix what ain't broke?
Rexgabe - 5/10/2011, 5:39 PM
I liked her in Thor. She is starting to come off a little desperate though.

@Jazzman: Let your suggestion bulk up and define a little bit and she'd be a perfect Croft.
InFamouslyCool - 5/10/2011, 5:44 PM
she could do it. should of been wonder woman, instead of that mutt they got. even though she's cute she looks a little special ed. must be the forehead.
revloveR - 5/10/2011, 5:50 PM
i like the rhona mitra choice. i love me some jaimie, but i want her to be wonder woman in the jla film.
Wildaniel - 5/10/2011, 6:28 PM
Olivia Wilde!!! Shes perfect!!!
Mugwamp - 5/10/2011, 6:46 PM
Is there anyone this woman doesn't want to play?
