Masa Ozaki, producer on Tiger & Bunny, jumped on Twitter to shed a little light on how the cast of the Tiger & Bunny The Live stage production is being decided. "The main cast is pretty much set," Ozaki said. It sounds like they're going for the closest matches possible, not only in appearance and acting, but in tone and atmosphere, as well.
While they considered using the original anime cast, they opted instead to hold auditions in an effort to make the stage version as entertaining as possible as an action spectacle. Non-native Japanese actors auditioned for the play, too, but people with Japanese skills were preferred since they can't exactly use subtitles in a live production.
Casting and performance details for Tiger & Bunny The Live will be announced in May.
