I could see Michelle Pfeifer except she's not tall, and I think she may come off almost too...sweet and petite. Not powerful enough, I can't imagine. But I would totally not mind them putting her in something to make her taller and seeing that much different a look or take on Maleficent, anyway. And she could have the power in her no matter what she looks like.
I feel the same way. Maleficent looks down on everyone, both physically and mentally.. She should be taller than most people. Of course such a thing can be accomplished by angles, wardrobe, and props, but still, Pfeifer is an amazing actress but I don't see her as playing Maleficent.
Glenn Close already played Cruella, so I don't think I'd want to see her type cast for a similar role again, but I am thinking an actress more like her is better. Not sure of her height, but Marina Sirtis's voice is certainly spot on for Maleficent. She can sound so beautiful and evil at the same time. She's played evil before

I am kinda like the idea of Marina as Maleficent
