Rousey shouldn’t even be acting for one thing, let alone hoping for the big roles that warrant a quality actress. Samus is a famous Nintendo character from the science-fiction/action video game Metroid which has always garnered praise for its unique story-lines and female led mech-suited hero.
If you’ve ever played Smash Bros. you know who Samus is and if you don’t, she’s really cool. Rousey has the right idea behind why Samus is cool – I’ll give her that much – but it takes more than passion to bring a character to life. It takes talent and a skill-set that breathes life into one the most famed characters in video games, not strictly the blonde hair, and hard-ass demeanor. This is not to say Rousey can’t one day be a good actress, but right now she is far from a thespian.
Do you know who is perfect for the role of Samus? Emily Blunt!
If you’re asking me, Emily Blunt will be the best candidate for most female action roles that come to fruition. Not only does she look like Samus, but she knows all about sci-fi films, but she is an exceptionally convincing actress through all genres she faces. Rousey, you’re cool and all, but get some quality roles under your belt and then start using your name for those roles.
