IF there ever was a portal movie, who should play her?

Making a movie about Portal is a horrible idea.

Michelle Rodriguez? God I hope you are fuckin joking...

Probably Emma Stone because Hollywood is contractually required to put her in every movie

I'll never understand, with a track record of something like 1-17, why people still insist on rooting for video games to be made into movies.

That said: she's a completely silent, mostly unseen protagonist, she could be played by almost anyone.

@Undeadpool: My favorite was the idea that Mass Effect--a game entirely predicated on the notion of player agency--should be squeezed into a linear film.

Like, what?

This. Or the woman they modeled her after.

A Portal movie is a terrible idea.

As long as she doesn't talk for the whole movie.

Portal does not lend itself well to being a movie.

You guys are late to the party.

P.S. I loved how ripped this lady was.

Does it matter? It's not like Chell has any sort of personality or defining features... Actually it should be Samuel L. Jackson.

@Scooper: No joke she was my first pick as well.

Irrelevant, the movie would be told exclusively from the first person perspective.

The biggest one for me was MGS. The game that is already criticized for being too cinematic...

Why would they put a hospital gown over her tank top?

It's for when she stands between two portals.

Keep the silent protagonist angle and get someone who would look good but can't act for shit. The female equivalent of Ray Park. Jessica Alba maybe?

Rosario Dawson.

Rosario Dawson should play everyone in everything.
