FAN CAST: My Ultimate DRAGONBALL Z Movie Cast
Hey guys, it's me, everyone's favorite Mercenary with a Chimichanga fetish!
Remember DRAGONBALL: EVOLUTION? Me Neither...
Come with me, MercwithMouth, and see the future cast!
OK, this is my first article, so be gentle.
Now, down to business...
I'm sure most of you guys saw the awful DRAGONBALL: EVOLUTION movie. What started as a half-assed idea, was made worse by horrible execution. Really, Justin Chatwin??? But, enough about that. How can we help Hollywood fix this problem in the future? By listening to my FAN CAST, of course!
I'm going to focus on the "Namek Saga" for this casting call. And if I leave out any characters that I shouldn't, let me know in the comments, or give me your ideas!
To start, we have our lovable hero. My choice for Goku is Tony Jaa.
Tony Jaa, as some of you may know, was the star of the Ong-bak film series. His martial arts skills are world-renowned. Even Jackie Chan loves him, saying, "Tony Jass is the most well rounded of all action stars.". I think Tony would make an excellent Goku.
My choice for Gohan is Leo Howard.
Yes, it's an old picture, and yes, Leo Howard is getting a little old to play Gohan. But, we accept changes to characters alot, so him being 16 isn't a hard pill to swallow. Leo's performances in both G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Conan the Barbarian were top notch. He would be perfect to bring the emotion and anger needed for a pissed-off Gohan.
Two words, Luke Goss.
Luke Goss is a badass. He is known for his action roles, and makeup heavy characters. Who can forget him as Nomak in Blade 2, or Prince Nuada in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. He brings exactly what we would want to see as Piccolo.
For the villainous Frieza, I give you Mark Dacascos.
Mark Dacascos is a skilled martial artist, and decent actor. He portrayed Kung Lao in the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series, and Eric Draven in The Crow: Stairway to Heaven. I would point to his villain turn in Cradle 2 the Grave opposite the legendary Jet Li and DMX. I believe he could give us a proper take on Frieza.
I will focus only on the leader of the Ginyu force. I would love to see Jason Momoa take on this powerful, and hilarious role.
Jason Momoa is best known for playing Conan in the somewhat ill-conceived remake of the Ahnuld classic. He also starred in Game of Thrones(never seen an episode). He is huge, has a brutal fighting style on film, and I would love to see him prancing around with the rest of the Ginyu Force.
Ah, the eye candy with brains. I'm gonna switch things up here, because my pick for Bulma, is Rila Fukushima.
Now, I know what you're saying. Bulma is caucasian. But after Rila's breakout role as Yukio in the Wolverine, I think you'd be hard pressed to dispute this casting. She's beautiful, and deadly. I also believe she can put forth the air of intelligence required for Bulma. Vegeta is a lucky man!
Speaking of the Saiyan Prince, I think he deserves a fanboy casting regular. I think Scott Adkins would be incredible as the despicable, lovable Vegeta.
I'm sure we all remember Scott's brilliance as Boyko in Undisputed II and III. He also did the stunt work as the infamous "Barakapool" in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As well, he had an awesome death scene as JCVD's henchman in Expendables 2. His martial arts are second to none, and he can definitely pull off the attitude of the entitled Saiyan Prince.
Saving my personal favorite for last. I love Krillin. He has a heart of gold, and doesn't know how to quit. For him, an odd choice of casting, I present for your consideration, Michael Rosenbaum.
Now, yes, he is far too tall for Krillin. But I honestly cannot think of anyone with the proper stature for Krillin (other than Verne Troyer). Rosenbaum is a fantastic actor, known for his role as Lex Luthor on Smallville. I've never seen Smallville, so I will direct you to "Poolhall Junkies". Little known film, but if you've ever shot a game of 9-ball in your life, I recommend you check it out. He's great as the little brother. I think he would make a great sidekick to Tony Jaa's awesome Goku.
Well, that's it for me. I know I left out some characters, like Nail, Dende, Master Roshi, and King Kai. By all means, give me your ideas for those characters and more in the comments section.
Until next time, have a Chimichanga on me!
