who would you cast for a live action shenmue?

Postby RyoHazuki84 » Wed Oct 24, 2012 6:56 am

well, if there is ever a live action shenmue movie, who would you cast? i know the voice actors atually did commercials in character and they did great, but it doesnt have to be them. who do you think could pull of the characters. Hell, keep Fujioka Kunihiro as Iwao. I dont think anyone else can do the role live action but him. other than that, i think many sentai and kamen rider and other japanese actors and actresses can do the roles.

for me, my ideal hazuki ryo would be ozawa ryota. he played captain marvelous in gokaiger, a sentai series. i think he has the look, he has the voice, and he can really do action very well. the way he played marvelous in some ways makes me think he could also do a good ryo. he is very good at doing one consistent emotion and everything along those lines.

for nozomi, i think horikita maki could really do the role. she looks like her and is very good at playing the love interest that is friendly, but yet hesitant to say her feelings though she shows it.

for lan di, i think hirose yutaka would be great. watch him in dairanger as jin and he has the look and the kick ass martial arts skills to really be as threatning as the character he plays. he gives off the same vibes and everything that defines the character.

for shen hua, i would love to see fukada kyoko in the role. she is cute, and she does a great job of being curious and is very communicative.

for gui zhang, i would love to see konishi hiroki from garo. he is certainly one of the best action actors i have seen in japan. he is incredibly good and i can see him having good chemsitry with ozawa ryota as ryo.

for joy, i would love to see ichimichi mao. she played luka in gokaiger and her character really came off as a joy type. plus, she is actually dating ozawa ryota.

for ren, yamada yuki would be perfect. hell, his get up in gokaiger is exactly like ren's

i will post more later

On a more serious note though, I wouldn't know who the fuck to cast, coz my knowledgebase of "who's who in the film industry" is exclusive to the transatlantic behemoth.

Usually I agree, but this particular topic opener actually has some good choices. At the very least, he's picking all Japanese actors. I like his choice for Lan Di quite a lot.
Personally, I think his choice for Gui Zhang, Konishi Hiroki, would be a better Ryo. Never really thought about it before, but his character in Garo has that right kind of "constantly serious and stoic" style to him that would shape a really good Ryo.
So yeah, usually people's casting choices are terrible, but these ones aren't too bad.

This is so funny because I have thought the same exact thing before oddly, he reminds me so much of BO (Barack Obama).
