Barbie is coming to a screen near you. And not in doll form – this foray into cinema will see a real-life actress (or actor?) bring the famous character to life in a new comedy that Sony Pictures are hoping to begin shooting by the end of the year. So, it got us thinking… who should step into Barbie’s immaculate, high-heeled shoes? Hollywood being Hollywood, there are plenty of glossy blonde actresses available, from Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried to Dakota Fanning and Margot Robbie.

Or producers could opt for a less glamorous choice, say, Katie Price? Or Paris Hilton?  There’s always original Barbie Girl songstress Lene Nystrøm of Aqua fame, or Moldovian-Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, dubbed “Human Barbie” thanks to her resemblance to the famous figurine. And if casting agents are feeling particularly left-field, they could always consider a bloke for the role. Orlando Bloom’s Legolas certainly had the blonde, flowing locks, or if they’re looking for someone au natural there’s always Chris Hemsworth or, er, Robbie Savage?
