Why do you not want Zac Efron to play the role of "Light"?

I think you should give him a try. He's a actor let him act. I don't see anybody complaining about them doing a high school musical musical in Japan.


That is very true.......nobody would give any damn abt japanese singing in their annyoing irrating jaoanese accents to any of the english songs...but you try copying one of their works and its suddenly....WHAA.....lol...

EXACTLY!!!! That's one very obvious reason people don't really mention. I mean, Death Note wouldn't be the same when it's Americanized because many of the original Japanese traditions would get lost, replaced by lame American counterparts! hell, i'm American myself and still say this


Sorry to burst your bubble...=) but literature has no boundaries it can be copied by anyone any where...... you dont see shakespere being restricted to england do you?

Lol.
I don't think he can play the role too well either. But then again I don't know how well he can act.
People here that are like OMG HE WONT BE ABLE TO ACT AS LIGHT B/C HE IS A DANCER or whatever....
think again. People are called
-ACTORS- because they ACT AS OTHER PEOPLE.
don't judge people by past roles, thats pretty much like stereotyping. The very thing you don't really want happened to you.
Not trying to defend him but seriously some of you ppl's comments are kind of retarded.

I don't have anything against that gut except that his face is not a thinking face.... it is more like a bubblebrain face... maybe I'm wrong....

But if the guy is an actor and if he has been choosen for the role then he must do it and show us what kind of actor he is... if he really is...

What we need is a handsome face with a naughty behavior... a nice face that can be really mean...

I can't think in any hollywood actor

i personally think they should not remake the movie in the first place.......
they are gonna ruin the DEathnote.......
and Zac Afron is out of option.....he is fine with his singing and dancing not with the stuffs like evil justice.

its not an act, its my opinion of what i think of him after watching his performance in HSM
i am used to his dancing and singing character so it would be odd and weird for me to see him playing the role of Light...
i just don't think he fits the role..that's all

I like him very much.
he is so cute especially his eyes.



The gif picture you posted is the very reason why.. HE is a Musical BOY. Unless he can somehow change 180 degree and turn into dark, evil character with such complex personality Light has, I he is going to RUIN the remake.
And somehow doubt that he will be able to pull it off.
Only thing he's been doing as 'acting' was singing and dancing in a Musical =_=;;


Wow... You judge an actor by a movie he played in?

If that dude played a dancing bitch you think he can only play dancing and music roles?

An actor only plays the roles he is given to. That's why they are called actors. Hollywood isn't a stupid bitch you know. They've had a hella lot of experience with movies... don't underestimate it's producers etc.... They usually have an audition with the casting they chose ... if Zack can't pull it off then he won't be playing in the movie.

And I believe it's only a rumor...

unless someone can prove it.

he definitely can´t play light...if he was that good why didn´t he already play in other genres than musicals (high schoool bla bla and hair spray)

i mean have you ever seen chuck norris in a musical...noo because he was born for merciless action crackers

I can't Zac Efron playing Light. I dont see him pulling it off, it would ruin the movie, besides he looks likes like a goody two shoes to me. They should just leave it alone.

Is it because he's white? actually, he does LOOK like Light, i mean, if you REEAAALLLY look at him. i wouldn't judge him right off, because alot of the asian actors used to be or are singers/dancers... he just needs to get a serious role to show off his darker side.
