The List, Part 4
Meryl Silverburgh, Metal Gear Solid Series
A stalwart of the Metal Gear Solid series, Meryl is a rookie agent in the first game. Despite her diminutive stature and young age, she can do one-armed pushups and take a sniper bullet with the best of them. Plus, she's the daughter of former Foxhound leader Col. Roy Campbell and has proven herself to be a valuable sidekick to Solid Snake. Now she is making her long-awaited return as head of Foxhound in this year's sequel Metal Gear Solid 4: The Guns of Patriots.
Pros: She's got the genes, the looks, the skills and the power.
Cons: She can be kind of a nag, and she's a bit of a Daddy's girl.
Should Be Played By: Rachel McAdams, who could be a dead ringer for Meryl.
EVA, Metal Gear Solid Series
Guys often have a weakness for bad girls, and Solid Snake is no exception. Eva, who makes her first appearance in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, portrays herself as a KGB agent named Tatyana and gains the trust of Naked Snake. Of course, she's really a spy for the Philosophers and her ultimate mission is to pop a cap in Snake's behind. Luckily, Eva pulls an Agent Triple X from "The Spy Who Loved Me" and refrains from killing our hero and ultimately disappears into the night.
Pros: She looks fabulous in a bikini, she's dangerous and she's got crazy magnetism.
Cons: She's a shifty lass, she betrays pretty much everyone she encounters and she'll kill you in your sleep after sex.
Should Be Played By: Uma Thurman, because she tall, blonde and built to kick ass.

The Boss, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

Also known as The Joy, The Boss is a renowned and heralded U.S. soldier who serves as Naked Snake's mentor and the tragic hero of the Metal Gear Solid series. [SPOILER ALERT!] In MGS 3: Snake Eater, The Boss defects to the Soviet Union and is killed by Snake, who later realizes that his mentor was actually undercover and sacrificed herself for a crucial mission.
Pros: A war hero and born leader, The Boss wrote the book on Special Forces combat and taught Snake everything he knows.
Cons: She's pretty old - and dead, of course - and
Should Be Played By: Sharon Stone, who reportedly served as the inspiration for the character's design, though the British accent might be a stretch.
