If Japan made a drama version of Skip Beat, who would you want the actors to be?

So who do you think should play Ren? Sho? and of course Kyoko? ^-^

hmm maybe Tamaki Hiroshi as Ren?



Oguri Shun as Sho? (I was trying to think of taller actors who have gone the blond hair route..)



I was thinking Ueno Juri for Kyoko...but Kyoko is supposed to be a high school student and I don't know if Juri could pull that off...
but I love Ueno Juri anyway so if she did play her I'd love it anyway.^^


I was also thinking Anna Tsuchiya...


but Anna's raspy voice won't fit those moments when Kyoko is in her fantasy world with fairies and princes.

gahhhh I'm not sure yet. I'm probably gonna edit this again.

Oh feel free post ideas for other characters as well.

Hmmm... I think since Tsuruga Ren is really tall...
Occupation: actor (LME Pop-Productions)
Appearance: brown/black hair, very long legs, 190 cm tall

he should be played by: Shirota Yu
Height: 188cm
...plus his facial bone structure could work since Ren's mother is not Japanese (her name: Julie) - AND his mother is Spanish So he has a slightly foreign look to him :D

He is a good fit, and he's been in a lot of dramas/movies :D

I first saw him in Hana Kimi, and I remembered seeing this topic and I was like - HE COULD TOTALLY PLAY REN!!

Can't agree with Oguri Shun as show, he plays the nice guy, how could you ask him to play an immature brat that is so narcissistic.. Ahh..
I can imagine him as Yashiro though.

But i think Hiroshi could pull it off.. But he'll need to be able to show a different facet of his acting or he'd just be another Shinichi Chiaki in Skip beat.

For Kyoko, I think a new face would be appropriate since she needs to be young.. and its hard to find someone plain who can "poof" become beautiful looking after some make-up? And since Kyoko is such a versatile character, I can't seem to think of anyone who fits the image at the moment.

Just my humble opinion..

True true... It SHOULD be someone foreign... but we don't know how many blonde Gaijin actors there are in Japan who are 180cm tall AND look HOT, AND are within the right age range...

I can't think of anyone at the moment....

Actually I think Ren is half japanese. But I agree with you guys and it is difficult to find all those qualifications.

Yup, he is half Japanese... we were trying to focus on the blondeness... which is actually very hard to find... because I think that if lets say you have a Japanese parent and a Caucasian and Blond parent... the Japanese gene which creates dark hair is dominant... and so I don't know how it happened that Kuon had blond hair... or it could be possible, but the chances are slim...

True he is half... But his hair is original blondish, and obviously quite tall, not to mention he doesn't seem to have much japanese over him other than the odd fact he speaks japanese fluid.

If i saw it all that matters is if Kyoko was a hottie 8) But still having the two battling dudes not even look like the characters would be stupid! It's like watching those stupid movies where the sequels suddenly is a complete other person, and in the whole movie you try to accept it but you just can't and thus you never go into the immersion of the play.

Also the reason the girl in the middle should be Kyoko, she seems to look very beautiful with short hair.

Yeah, they really need to look similar to what the original creator of the characters intended...

... I dare not mention the HORRIFIC choice of actors for the horrible American live action version of Dragonball?? EEEEEEEW - YUCKY!!

I like that actress from a few posts prior... but despite her looking so nice, she has to be able to be EVIL - well not "evil" but scary and dark Kyouko...

Hahahaha omg the dragon ball movie actor choices was giant ball of laugh then tears of shame and anger, then a lot of laughter again.

Ah yes true... without her evilness she couldn't be kyoko... But i'm sure every woman can bring forth their inner tiger cat. 8)

well they a small percent that a child could have blonde hair and I just Ren was one of those rare cases when they got the blond gene...Though we don't need to find a blonde guy. We can just find a 180cm, hot, correct age range guy and just see if he looks good as a blonde.

I like how you included "HOT" in there and I agree - which is why I liked Shirota Yu for the part... though I would probably have to find some sort of Japanese drama actor database in order to find the perfect guy

Yeah I think Yamapi could pull off that arrogance that Sho has...but I think Oguri Shun is more attractive hahah. It would be a nice change to see him play a jerk. He did play a yankee in Gokusen (but he ended up being a sweet guy after all) that got into a lot of fights...
*shrugs*
oh and you guys were saying something about an actress in an earlier post (I just assumed you were talking about Anna Tsuchiya..? since I didn't see any other actresses pictures before said posts) and how she needs to be able to look "evil" or something.
ahahah I should probably check again to be sure...
but yeah Anna Tsuchiya is kinda well known for having a really rough and brazen personality so I think she could pull of a super angry Kyoko lol. Here's some more pictures of her.




Visually, I think Anna could play Kyoko...it's just I've never seen her play the sweet girl that Kyoko can be too.
