Oh this should be fun Razz

I've been enjoying the current ongoing anime so it'll be interesting to see the live action chemistry between the main leads.

So can we expect some bishonen Johnny's idol to get cast as Takeo?

I don't think there's enough material to sustain the excitement a live-action film would need. But, good luck to it, anyway.

Are there any Japanese actors who can even vaguely pull off Takeo's size? I'm thinking of someone like Michael Clarke Duncan who had a build that would fit Takeo quite well.

That was actually my very first thought about this as well.

That's my concern too... especially since Takeo is supposed to be the exact opposite of what a bishounen is.

I'm already looking forward to the movie! Hope it comes to the US somehow.

As for Takeo--maybe they could get a wrestler-turned-actor?

Who they cast as Takeo will pretty much make or break this movie, and I can't think of a single popular Japanese star physically up to the task. Would be awesome if they find some unknown actor who fits the physicality and breaks away from the bishounen mold a bit.

Here's hoping the studio will be successful in finding someone that's big enough to match Takeo's burly physique.

Suzuki Ryohei maybe? Among other things, he starred in Hentai Kamen a couple years back. He's pretty muscular but still very easy on the eyes...
