As a tangent to this thread over in rk fans, have you ever thought about who would play Aoshi or Megumi in a live action drama or movie?

And on another note, what happened to hitomi's long dissection of A/Meg that used to be here.

Does a copy still exist soemwhere

But of course I have. Except I'm shitty with Japanese actors. I don't watch enough movies or j-dramas, and the ones I've seen...don't have Aoshi/Megumi-worthy candidates.

But if we were doing a general Asian casting call, Tony Leung. He's a bit on the old side, but he cleans up really nicely. If you add a deadly, menacing aura to his character in "In the Mood for Love," it's basically Aoshi. XD And he's phenomenal in Infernal Affairs.

Joan Chen, also on the older side, but gorgeous and funny. She plays a hilarious pregnant widow who's been ostracized by the Chinese American community in "Saving Face."

Tony has a nice long face, which I think would work. But Joan Chen - man she's so old now that I"d have a hard time imagining her as a 21 year old !!!

I think a live action would work better with all the characters older anyway. It's hard to believe anyone's in their twenties and as "seasoned" as they are. I suppose that might be the point with the war prematurely aging everyone, but I think in general, I just respond better to older, experienced actors.

Turns out, Tony and Joan are only like a year apart!! Imagine that!

If they do a live action, Saitou is just automatically in it, regardless of what arc they do. XD I wish I had a good Saitou in mind...but I don't know that I do. He's gotta have a brutal face. XD

Oh, there's Tadanobu Asano (someone actually Japanese XD). He's got a great look to him and I liked him in Beat Takeshi's Zatoichi. (Only he's ten years younger than Tony and Joan!!)
