i actually think he is a good actor just needs to lose the tan.

I heard that he was an anime fan and loves the genre so if it boosts the profile for anime why not.

however live action adaptation of this well i feel it wont work its like doing a live action of Ghost in the Shell it just cant be as ground breaking as the original

i think he is trying to show he can act, he is open to new things. well im all for it

Yeah, he was pretty cringe-worthy and a Disney pretty boy in the HSM movies (Although I admit to liking the third one *SHOT*) but Disney does that to everyone. They're aimed at kids.

I've seen some movies of his post-Disney career and I actually quite like them (Like 17 Again, oh lawl, I probably have negative infinity cool points right now) so if you put his Disney persona aside then he's really not that bad.

I feel sorry for those Disney stars who can't be taken seriously because they are/were a part of Disney. They're obviously trying hard to break free from that and I think that's why Zac Efron is trying to do more adult roles (well, Kanade is a kid but it's a pretty mature movie xD).

And hey, I was the many few that actually wanted Zac Efron to star as Light Yagami cause he just looked so damn similar ;A;
I'm a bit iffy with him being Kanade actually, for one thing they look nothing alike and he normally plays the pretty boy characters. But hey, he's branching out, can't blame him for trying??


I BET YOU HAVE A HIGHSCHOOL MUSICAL POSTER, DONT CHA!


I DO, MY ROOM IS LIKE, TOTALLY COVERED IN HSM AND ZAC EFRON POSTERS LOLOL.

...

...

No.

A lot of actors and directors say they big fans of genres and series when at all, they know jack.

I HATE EFRON! ARGH!

As mentioned it was going to be a young up and coming star so i guess it would either be him or....ergh..shia le bouf... lol

I am sick of the amount of stick Zac Efron gets, purely because of how he made his name known. There always seems to be outcry whenever he's cast in something that the fans don't agree with because, oh God, he started out with a Disney musical! Oh no, that means whatever film he's cast in is going to be made into a story told through song and dance! Look past it and you'll see he's a decent actor and shouldn't be looked down on purely because of High School Musical. He actively chooses not to star in musicals because people won't stop thinking of his squeaky clean Disney image. He pulled out of Footloose because he wanted to be considered a serious actor, rather than someone who pops up every now and again doing musical remakes.

A number of stars started out in Disney and decided to break away from Disney and became popular actors and singers. To name a few: Shia LaBeouf, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake. Nobody seems to care about their Disney backgrounds any more, hell, most people don't even know that they started out there in the first place! They're all considered serious stars now, so why not let him do the same? He is no longer associated with Disney or High School Musical, so just forget about his involvement with those films for one second and treat him the same way you treat Shia, Britney, Christina and Justin.

Everyone has to get their break somehow. Doesn't mean you have to shove it back in his face whenever you don't agree with a movie casting.

I don't wanna be funny but - as far as anime goes, Zac Effron is a good candidate. Let's face it, he IS pretty and anime guys are generally PRETTY!! His acting really isn't that bad at all. Yeah HSM sucks a load of b***s, but hey - he's an actor, and sometimes it happens that actors end up in crappy old roles.

I'm not seeing the ressemblance between him and Kaneda ( he would have made an epic Light though, shoot me for saying it! ) but maybe with a bit of roughing up etc Hollywood style , he'll look just fine for the part!

Frankly, if this movie is going to fail ( which it will, just look at what happened to DBZ, Avatar The Last Airbender ) it won't be because of Zac, it would be because Hollywood generally hasn't really grabbed the concept of making anime in LA without turning it to utter s**t!

I'm surprised by how much opinion there is about something nobody has yet seen and can do anything about.

Could go either way as far as I'm concerned. There might be surprises. Remember when Daniel Craig first got the role of James Bond?

I seem to remember not alot of people liking that either, remeber when quantum of solice came out? no neither do I XD I can remember when Bond was a nation wide event.

Having an opinion on something we havent seen, well sadly thats the internet for you just as frustrating and hypocritical as the rest of the world XD but I get what you mean

Plus I agree everyone is getting bent out of shape for nothing as -

A. Effron isnt really a bad actor...he isnt outstanding but he does what he is set out to do and I do think people are judging him Soley on his career for the big mouse, I saw him in the trailer for Chaz St. Cloud and didnt even recognise him as he had grown stubble...but that made him look like evil Zack Effron XD

B. This film probably wont go through as its been on and off for about 10 years, much the same as the GITS film and the Evangeleon Film.

I am a huge Akira fan and if the film gets made I probably wont like it, much the same way that I didnt like Superman Returns *the modern one* it wasnt that Branden was a bad actor, it was that in my pointless opinion it was a needless remake. tbh its the fact that they are just americanising it that makes me angry XD

For further ideas on how its going to turn out see - Harry Partridge's American Akira XD

its just not going to work effron might be an average actor with some ability, but hes not gunna pass off such an iconic character, and its not entirly his fault ofc, its just damn money grubbing studios bastardising the things we love, for a quick buck. its not going to do well, its not going to be for the fans, its going to be another DB evolution, made to draw in an audience that wont or cant be botherd with subtitles or anything that breaks the mould from their blankey of samey, too scared to push some boundarys, painful lack of imagination and creativity, run of the mil bullshit.

The box office needs the film to apply to wider demographic, people who aren't already familiar with the franchise for it to make money. This is the ONLY reason he's going to be in this movie.

HE'S SO DREAMY!


09 Nov 2010 - 16:5444562
GAINAX I agree with you, but have you noticed that this incessent need to appeal to the demographic dosent make anyone happy, take the watchmen film for example they made it appeal to the majority by manipulating many aspects in turn the fans were upset and what was the publics view? "There was to much talking I fell asleep" I genuinly had the majority of the watchmen dvd brought back into my work and returned for that reason XD

But then the studios say yeah but if we cant change it we wont make any money off it or anything, my humble answer would be DONT MAKE IT THEN! if it isnt broke dont fix it XD we dont need another crappy american basterdisation, go make another Ben Stiller movie or something LOL Japan have stopped selling thier Sentai Series to america for this reason lol. its one the things I like about Japanese anime/cinema they dont care about hurting every single minority XD

Irony works in a wonderful way.

Ohhhh man. Well I'm not gonna slag it off just yet... Simply because I've never watched Akira all the way through and although some people may throw bricks at me for saying this... EFFRON MAY JUST SURPRISE YOU!

I mean, don't get me wrong I'm not exactly optimistic about the film but seriously, I think we've all seen a film or two in our time where we watched it and said something along the lines of "Oh wow, that actor played a role I wouldn't have thought they would normally do, but they pulled it off pretty well!"

All I'm trying to say guys is... Yeah, it seems like a weird choice. But don't get into the whole thing of condemning a movie just because of ONE thing. (OK, yes an actor is arguably a very big thing) But I mean, give it a chance. If you watch it with a neutral standpoint you'll either be pleasantly surprised OR you can laugh at how awful it is, right?

One statement! Dragonball Evolution

You know aht sad thing is the Asian countries will love Akira like they did that monstrosity so they will make there money even if us in the west dont like it.


09 Nov 2010 - 20:0244597
As stated several times in this thread, he's a good actor being judged because he featured in Disney's HSM.

Majoritively disliked for being a 'pretty boy' but aren't a majority of anime characters bishe? I know it's not the case for Akira - not in the slightest. But it does surprise me an anime community would use that as a bad factor against him? XD;

Either way I'll withhold judgement until I see it. It's a lot more mature than some of his previous stuff so you don't know how well he'll do. That being said it is Hollywood and at the brief mention of Dragonball Evolution makes me inwardly cringe.

Frankly I 'd have thought majority of rage would have been aimed at how Hollywood may possibly destroy another classic. Rather than the role choices for now XD

<TLDR - I DON'T KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS. But I think people should stop whining about Effron.> ~XD


09 Nov 2010 - 20:2444601
i didnt entirely make this post due to effron, still a major factor but in teh article morgan freeman is gunna be in it too, its more so a massive MASSIVE facepalm to hollywood from me
