I know most people hate that there will be American live action cast,
personally, i'm not too keen on the idea as well, i like the anime and manga just fine, and wouldn't want to see hollywood butcher it.
but just for fun, what if you can cast anybody to be in a Death note live action, who would it be?
These are my thoughts.


Light as
lol joking, but he does kind of looks like, not sure in acting coz never watch any of his movies.
or..

I donno, Light is a bit hard to cast for now.

L as...honestly, it's really hard to think anyone except Kenichi matsuyama



Misa as Lena Fujii, don't know if she can act plus maybe a bit old to play Misa i guess now, but does have that appearance, plus she's a model!



Near as Kanata Hongo, he's got that evil kid genius look to him


Mello as Jamie Campbell, i know, but i found Mello really hard to find, he's got a unique girly face mix psycho intense. i thought Jamie's eye can look a bit scary at times, so him for now.


I'm not too sure the others, don't have any clues yet.

What would you guys dream cast be?

As much as I like Jeff Bridges, I don't find him as a good fit.

I also like kanata hongo as near because his acting in Gantz movie is great, I think he can portray the role of near

Put a fit women in there, we might get a sex scene.

I think it's unrealistic to expect any Asian characters (except some incidental side-line characters). Light's family name is going to be Anglicized, and L will become...well...probably British, going by how American cinema does this sort of thing.

So...to really speculate, just cross out any Asian actors being considered for the central family. Hollywood just won't do it, not if they are actually planning on making money.

With that in mind, we should seriously consider Justin Bieber as Light Jones.

By the way, on this general topic, has anyone been keeping up with the progress of the movie? A director has been called upon but the studio doesn't want to include Shinigami in the script, which is part of why it is currently delayed.

Honestly, I will be surprised if this film finally gets off the ground...I will be even more surprised if it is even in the galaxy of watchable.

Yes, he was the best L, and I find it hard to imagine L with Caucasian face, yes I know he's suppose to be half this half that, or maybe even British, but just his features and all is way closer to Asian IMO.
Kanta Hongo got the Near look going on! It'll be awesome to see him as Near

It's true that they would most likely use Caucasian actors/ress, but this forum is just to forget "reality" and imagine whatever you want.

if Justin Bieber is Light, should we be expecting some dancing and singing in the film as well?
Which will be the most ridiculous manga adaption film ever, plus highly doubt if he can act.

TBH, I in-a-way hope that they won't make the film unless they plan to do it good, and actually find people who can make us FEEL they are the character, or else it will just be horrible again.

Well, heck, if they made Bleach: The Musical...then why not, "Death Note: Never Say Never!!!"

With Selena Gomez as Misa, a special appearance by Usher as Ryuk.

That just has awesome written all over it.
