Kerry Washington

  1. Viola Davis, Suicide Squad, 2015.  After 15 possible Harley Quinns and 20 Deadshots, director David Ayer had a real shortlist -four names! –  for Amanda Waller:  Davis, Scandal’s delectable Washington, Octavia Spencer and Oprah Winfrey, no less.  
  2. Zazie Beetz, Deadpool 2, 2017.  A hunt for a new director and for the girl known as Domino was happening  sumultaneously. David Leitch won the chair (after his Deadpool short, No Good Deed) and the Berlin-born trilingual American stunner known as Zazie won the girl. From: Sofia Boutella (of Star Trek Beyond), Lizzy Caplan, Canadian Mackenzie Davis, The Knick’s Eve Hewson, Sienna Miller, Kansas City singer Janelle Monáe, Kelly Baywatch Rohrbach, Ruby Rose (from Orange Is The New Black), Kerry Washington, Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Plus Spectre’s Bond Girls:Dutch Sylvia Hoeks and Mexican Stephanie Sigman. Beetz was so great, she deserved her own movie… and not just joining the guys again in X Force.
