Personally, I think he could do a decent job. People surprise you, besides he's a good actor.~

I can, because I have a weird imagination, but since I don't really care either way who plays who anymore ((since so many things I love in the anime world have already been soiled)) I respect your opinions! :3

I read something about this from a club I'm in on deviantart, and they said the whole Zac Effron thing was just a rumor, but I really wouldn't know.

I'm just curious, I'm not trying to pick a fight or anything, why do you guys think he'd do a bad job? Because from where I stand I've only seen him do great emotion in most of his acting, though I haven't seen a manic side that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Is this judgement based on his acting in HSM/17 Again or is it for another reason?

Like I said, just curious.~ :3

I honestly can't say if he'll be good or bad, because I refuse to see HSM, and I haven't seen 17 again, but I might just to see how he act's.

That might be it I guess... I liked what he did in HSM 1, but he kinda lost it in HSM 2 and HSM 3. Though, I haven't seen 17 yet, my friends have said that it wasn't very good.....

I personally love HSM. xD The first one is pretty good, after that overall they go downhill but are still decent. I haven't seen 17 Again, YET, but I plan to at some point because it sounds good.~

Personally, I just always thought he was a good actor even if he is generally unpopular aside from his obsessive fans. xD

Wondering if he's a good actor? Watch Hairspray. It isn't High School Musical, and it's just a straight up great movie.

Not that you guys have anything to worry about. That's old news, and I doubt it will ever actually happen.

I-I didn't like Hairspray...but I have to admit he was great in it.

I didn't even KNOW it was him until there was a closeup!

it's not a bad thing to like HSM, I'm just not one who would be into it, but I do know there are a lot of people who do, and that's good. As for me, I'll skip that movie series and continue on with other one's.

I never saw Hairspray but I heard he was in it. And now we know he was good in that too, even if the opinions on the overall movie are mixed. xD

The only reason I can think that it'd get bad publicity for Zac Efron being in it is for petty immaturity. Since it seems most people nowadays have a tendency to judge popular actors negatively for no apparent reason it might become a joke, but I'd still watch it. :'D

ORLY? I didn't read this whole thread but when I saw the Zefron bashing I just had to come to the rescue.

Has anyone seen 17 Again? He's great in that! Just because he's been in Disney movies doesn't mean his acting's sub par, in fact tons of great talent has come from Disney!

If he's actually going to be in DN then I gotta say, I'm excited.

Well, If he does get to be on the cast, I guess it'll be worth while to see how he does, if he did great or if he sucked at it. Lol

hey, disney was great until they stopped making 2d film's and went to using pixar mostly (except for pirates, and those movie's are well done) I just don't like HSM, but I can't judge him for that... I mean, look at Shiala Buff, he was in Even Stevens and he's still doing decent in film's.

Well, If he does get to be on the cast, I guess it'll be worth while to see how he does, if he did great or if he sucked at it. Lol
D: Now I just got a funny imagination of what if he cosplayed as Light one day....
wait if Zac's Light.... THEN WHOS L?!

Zefron doesn't need to cosplay to get the Light vibe, he has it already!



And IMO he's way more attractive and accurate to the character than the actor for the Japanese version was.



Eugh.

It's kind of a rumor, but at the same time it's more likely to happen than a lot of other actors being chosen.

they did at least use the english voices, so that was a plus. But ya, it really doesn't work quite as well as the japanese version. What's funny was I didn't get into Death Note until I saw a trailer for the movie where they used Dani California as the theme for it.

Yeah, I'm guessing the same thing....
Well whatever the case is, lets just hope that the dub would be at least ok and not as bad as some of the anime dubs. :)

I have to agree, he would be a perfect Light. I saw 17 Again today, and it only further solidified my idea of Zack Efron as Light. Not that I'm counting on it happening, but I really do think he would do the role to perfection.

I honestly think most of the people who have a problem with him, don't actually have a problem with him...they have a problem with his most famous movies - High School Musical. I hate those movies with every fiber of my being, but it won't stop me from seeing the skill he genuinely has as an actor, something I am learning increasingly every day lately.

And yes, Lillard is Shaggy. He's just such a psychotic goofball, I think he would fit the role well.

@EveofAbyss

I just wanted to say, thank you. I've been saying the same exact thing all along and it's really cool to hear it from someone who admits to hating High School Musical. Quite frankly, I believe actors and movies should be judged seperately, and from what you've said you're doing just that for Zac Efron.

Anyway, I agree on that too. Zac Efron would be able to play the role wonderfully, for all the reasons I've listed in the past. Hopefully he gets it, if he doesn't then oh well.~

I concur with Eve and Romo~

Zefron is out of Death Note's league? If anything Death Note is out of Zefron's league.

Edit: I meant the reversed, lol! My point was that Zefron is a mainstream, well-known teen idol whereas Death Note is unknown outside of the nerd fandom. We'd be lucky to get Zefron aboard~

If he gets THE LAUGH down, he'll be okay.
You have to admit, the resemblance is oddly good... Minus the eyes, he'll need to wear contacts.

I'm kinda worried about the storyline more. Are they going for the original, or the movie one?

I don't really care, as long as it doesn't become Death Note: the Musical.

So what if he's mainstream? He's a good actor. And this is coming from someone who couldn't watch five minutes of High School Musical.

God this is going to suck so hard. XP The people who wrote and directed those crap movies XP God come on Hollywood..... I liked the originals but the American versions >:(
 :) I don't mind if Zac what ever his name plays Light, if he can act like Light then I'm fine with him. Because you never know what hidden talent actors have. But the writers and director UGH!!! Makes me want to bash my head against a wall. Oh well there's no way of stopping Hollywood once they make up there mind XP lol.  Let's just pray they'll stay true to the manga story line rather than the Japanese movies. Loved the movies, but I thought they could of had a better ending :P Ok i'm going to stop ranting. lol

Respecting all opinions, I think he'd work fine for being Light. I've seen a few movies with him and he can definately do personality changes in his acting. :3

Though, all I wonder about it that crazy laugh he does... I just can't imagine Zac doing something as crazy as that. I mean, I've heard his laugh before I believe and it wouldn't make too much sense, I don't think. .____.;

I think he looks the part, but even if the movie is just a rumor, I would be interested in seeing him do the part, but if its a 'death nnote musical' I'm gonna cry! I think if e could play the part it would really make his stats go up in the acting biz. I just hope he could go from 'sissy pretty boy' to 'crazy killer pretty boy'

I think a lot of people are making the mistake of thinking he's Zac Efron so he only does musicals. That's not the case, and just because he's been in a couple musicals certainly doesn't mean everything he does in the future must be also. Death Note the Musical? That's not even a twinkle in the eye of anyone working on the movie, lol

Okay just to be blunt: Why do you think that?

Is it because he's "Mister High School Musical" and that he's a disney person? Quite frankly he's one of the more talented actors I've seen since he can portray emotion well and it's just a bonus that he can sing.

And then if you want to go further he has done a serious film, "17 Again". I've never seen it but from those who have I've heard nothing but good things so far. So I really want to know why you're making it sound like an apocolypse when they could definately choose a much worse actor.

Besides, if he gets the part I might actually watch it. I'm really interested to see how the character would fall into place, since I have confidence he could do it.

Personally I think plenty of people are talented enough to play ANY of the characters in Death Note. Actors/Actoresses here are truly amazing, just as they are anywhere else. Judging by country for that is dumb. That's why I only point blame at the producers since they're the ones in charge.

*shudders at thought* This will not turn out well. It isn't just America that is horrible at adaption, it is the matter of A Jock playing Japan's best. I have seen all of the HSM movies, hoping he would do better each time. As well as 17 Again. He just can't do it! He doesn't look the part! I don't mean to bash your opinions. But I simply cannot put the two together in my head without a horrible outcome. He may be able to portray emotion, but Light is more than emotion. Light is a role model, hope, the dawning of a cleansing era. My fear is that Light Yagami will be turned into the next Troy Bolton. I sign the petition as a respectable follower of both Kira and L!

I honestly just don't want this to happen. I'm tired of anime being brought into the US and made into live actions. I just don't like it.

I don't like Japanese movies, either, but I love the USA's. Maybe they just shouldn't mix? I mean, to portray most anime, you have to be, say, not much realistic.

And I also just happen to hate live actions, no matter their origin.

Why can't we just shut up and deal with it like we do every other movie that comes out? I mean come on guys, it's a movie.

One of the reasons why there's so much opposition to this idea is that when everyone says Zac Effron, your mind automatically runs to Disney and HSM. You can't continuously think of one actor based on their movie or movies. Actors are supposed to  be able to play the roles they are given, audience members are supposed to clear their minds of the actor's last role and think of them as the current character. 

Give the man a chance, its not like he's tied to Disney anymore anyway, so now he can do whatever he wants.

I'll admit as readily as anyone that at first glance he may not seem good for more then campy, heavily-marketed Disney Channel musicals, but I thought twice about judging him based only on HSM after watching that. Besides, his hair is almost perfect for Light. Not saying that no one else could possibly achieve the look considering it's not something insane like Vegeta's hair (oh god, Dragonball Evolution, now that's a horrible movie) but it seems like a good fit.

Another thing (and I haven't read the whole forum yet so someone might have pointed this out already) but in the beginning of the manga Light is innocent and boy-next-doorish. Zac Efron's got that without even trying. His appearance is disarming, which is why he'd be a good Light to start off. Now, it's his transition throughout the series from well-intentioned vigilante to psychotic megalomaniac that he'd have to nail.

Besides.

The kind of parodies that could come out of this would be not just EPIC, but legendary.

I'm more worried about someone who can do a good L, Light is the average goodlooking guy, and he can be captured, his personaillty. But L seems like a much harder person to perfect.

*shudders at thought* This will not turn out well. It isn't just America that is horrible at adaption, it is the matter of A Jock playing Japan's best. I have seen all of the HSM movies, hoping he would do better each time. As well as 17 Again. He just can't do it! He doesn't look the part! I don't mean to bash your opinions. But I simply cannot put the two together in my head without a horrible outcome. He may be able to portray emotion, but Light is more than emotion. Light is a role model, hope, the dawning of a cleansing era. My fear is that Light Yagami will be turned into the next Troy Bolton. I sign the petition as a respectable follower of both Kira and L!

Pause.  PAUSE. 


WHAT.  THE.  HELL. 





Okay, I do find Light to be incredibly hot, but not because I think he's a good role model and a beacon of hope, it's because he's a psychopathic asshole.  I wouldn't mind some time with the fictional character, but really... Come on.  COME ON.
and contributing to the topic, I'd like to see if Zac Efron's capable of this.  I would see this if he was cast into the role.  And I think he could look like Light, maybe if he stopped looking curious all the time.  I'm bad at sentences leave me alone

..OKAY WHAT.

What's this about Light being a role model? I... Pardon my surprise, please, but that's really not... not what I would call him.

I like to think of it this way.
Light, at first, is actually just... your average college freshman/ highschool graduate. He is devilishly good looking, and a whiz-kid at that. Even there I have no problem with Zac portraying Light. (Seriously, though? He looks the part. Am I alone in thinking that Zac does indeed, if even a little, resemble Light?)

It is his transition that is the most difficult part of Light to portray. IMO, no even the Japanese adaptaton focused enough on that part. Character complexes are the most important part of a character that actors strive to reproduce. This is why the Joker, in The Dark Knight, is such an appealing character. Heath Ledger's Joker was not only the psycotic clown shown in the other Batman movies, but also his past, and an explanation:
"To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's posture, voice, and personality, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker's thoughts and feelings."
I'm not saying that Zac Efron is gonna go all out like this. I'm not saying that he will be as awesome as Heath Ledger was as the Joker. What I'm trying to get across is that Zac has the rare capability to show even the subtlest of his characters' schemes. One of the greatest things I was surprised abot in his recent role in 17 Again was his immaculate portrayal of a husband falling (again) for his wife. He forgets himself. And that alone is cause for applause, because, as easy as it sounds that is the hardest thing to do as an actor.

As soon as I lost that image of Zac as just another 'nice-looking guy whose acting skils were overpuffed by Disney', I saw that he definitely has potential to be an incredible actor.

He was just cursed with a face that makes him look eternally 18. XD

I think that, in a way, everyone copies each other. If there's a hit thing that sweeps a country, other countries will try to make their own adaption of it. Ex: Married with Children (USA to UK), The Office (UK to USA), Hana kimi (Japan to Korea), and the list goes on an on.
It's the same for food, fashion, electronics, and just about everything else.
The only thing I'd want is accuracy.
If you're gonna copy something, don't botch it up with a bunch of things that are going to take away from the original storyline (Dragonball movie, anyone? lol).

and i just KNOW by americanizing it, the story will be so screwed with we'd never make the connection with the real Death Note except that the titles are the same. I HOPE they don't make a movie like this :-\

You guys are acting like Disney OWNS Zac Efron. It just so happens he got his first big break there, so what? He's a perfectly capable actor, and you're just assuming he's not going to do well because he's been in "family friendly" films. Disney isn't in charge of this production, I'm not sure who is, but still.

I totally agree... I actually don't think he's a HORRIBLE actor, I mean it's hard to really judge someones kills when all you have to base them off is the same roles that he's been type-casted in over and over again.

My worry is more about the rest of the cast, because if they were to get Zac Efron as their "big name" for the movie and then haphazardly fill the rest of the roles, THEN I would get irritated. A movie can't be carried by one person alone.

I have the felling the the director is going to kill the movie. But I would say pull some no name from musical theather and make him Light. Theather always has the best actors.

From the looks of who's producing it...this isn't going to be a Disney movie by any standards. In fact, the people making it mainly create horror films. So you should be more nervous of them turning it into a crappy gore fest than a musical.

I agree with Cassiopeia though, he's perfect for the part so what's the matter guys? Is it really just because he was on disney? He had gigs BEFORE High School Musical and AFTER it too. So I see no problem.

I, personally, don't see him doing a terrible job if he does have the part. He isn't a terrible actor. Plus there are far worse people than him for that role. I don't think there should be a non-Japanese release of a live action on it. We tend to ruin lots of things. But that's just my opinion...

Yeah.  I mean, he actually know the story and the characters.  The only thing to do is to make sure all the actors could pronounce the Japanese words properly.

The Germans pronounce it Bear-LEEN.

The point is, is when you're speaking in, say, English, it isn't always necessary to pronounce foreign words correctly. (of course, sometimes it is.)

I doubt Zac Efron is an anime fan, so we shouldn't expect him to know how manga is pronounced. I agree, it's annoying, but how many of us used to call it main-ga? I did before I knew better.

. . Or did I completely misinterpret your post? orz

EDIT: Wow, I feel smart. By "anime fan," I meant otaku.

Exactly. So many words get translated into the english language differently than they were meant to be spoken, so it's hard to be critical about these things. Especially when I know that I've messed up many words...that are ENGLISH, I never really pronounced manga wrong but apparently I've been pronouncing anime wrong. xD;;;

Well on the flip side look at all the English loan words in Japanese,
I was pronouncing loan words as I would regularly in English and threw off my conversation partner because he only knew the Japanese pronunciation.

And as for translation:

Japan is Nihon in Japanese (Nihongo), but we call it Japan after a series of mistranslations of the Chinese name for "Japan" (I think jih pun, not sure exactly what the Chinese is/was but it meant 'sunrise').


anyways back to Zac as Light;
I'm starting to see it more and more... I dislike both Light & Zac, they have that same hair, and enough narcissism to take down an army of the guilty & the innocent.

*shudders*
But I have a hard time figuring out why anybody would want to redo/rehash death note via live action with American actors...
I mean if you keep the same story, the why have American actors play Japanese?
If you scrap the story and stuff it in America, you killed your fan base...
I just don't get it.

It's kinda like Keanu Reeves being the live action Spike for that Cowboy Bebop movie Fox is doing...
*shurg*
Although that has crazy support form the original Cowboy Bebop team, so I have more hope for it.
If you were gay, that'd be okay.

Plus, I can totally see him becoming all evil. And that laugh. YES~

No, you didn't.  I should have figured it would be pronounced different in Germany, considering my last name is German and we never pronounce it properly.  Although it is cool when teachers and subs say it properly the first time!

I think they're aiming the movie toward non-otaku.
People who haven't really watched Death Note will likely enjoy the movie since it has a good plot, and possibly Zac Effron in it...

Hahah, thinking about that I can now see the Disney-Channel target audience in the theater crying...
'Where are the dance scenes? Why is nobody singing? PEOPLE ARE DYING!?!?!?' and that's just the moms.

Well, should Zac Effron do a good job, this would help kill his Disney slave persona and maybe land him more roles in films that aren't set in highschools.
If you were gay, that'd be okay.

And I'm not going to disagree. I would never think that Disney would involve themselves in something so dark. Speaking of that, maybe this role would be a break through for Zac Efron. He's has the tendency to be un-liked by several people, but doing a role from an anime that became popular will open up Efron's chances into bigger brighter movies that'll change his status for some people.

He's going from "We're all in this together" to " I win Near!" Dunh Dunh DDDUUUUUUNNNNHHH!!!!!

Perhaps Zac Efron does wish to expand his horizons. It's certainly a possibility. Granted he was involved with High School Musical but he is still an actor and maybe he wants to challenge himself. Challenging one's self worked for Will Smith look at him now. I'm still more than a little unsure about Zac Efron playing Light Yagami, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and I'll wait for when and if the movie comes out and judge his performance then. That's probably the best way to handle this.

Going back to NCIS for a sec, did you know that an NCIS character was in a Disney movie years ago?  Sean Murray (McGee), played Thackary Binx (the black cat) in the Disney film "Hocus Pocus"!!!

I couldn't believe it at first when I was reading Sean Murray's Wiki page, but I popped in the DVD and there he was!

I have hopes for Zac Efron yet!
