It was the primary try to convey to the display the unbelievable adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, the boy who dreamed of changing into the King of the Pirates and, twenty-two years later, right here we try once more to unfold the magic of that work, this time in live-action format.
In growth for a number of years now, the Netflix sequence Western manufacturing has solely lately made recognized its first performers (the announcement of the solid of the live-action ONE PIECE dates again only a few hours in the past) the unique members of the Mugiwara crew , and there may be nonetheless an extended strategy to go . But, within the meantime, let’s take a better have a look at who will lend their faces to the members of the craziest crew there may be.
One Piece: Who Are The Actors
Iñaki Godoy – Luffy
Born in 2003, simply turned 18 and vitality to spare: that is how the younger Mexican actor chosen to play the protagonist of the live-action Netflix presents himself and, no less than judging by the brief introduction video of the solid posted on the varied official accounts, the function of the curious and hyperactive Captain appears to suit him completely.
Although with little expertise behind him by way of internationally recognized tasks (we keep in mind him primarily within the a part of Bruno in the Netflix sequence What occurred to Sara) Godoy has really already taken half in a number of TV sequence in Spanish , together with Sin miedo a la verdad (wherein he starred in 11 episodes) and La querida del Centauro (the place he seems for 128 episodes). Considering additionally the possible lengthy length of the Netflix transposition, which if profitable will accompany us for years and years to return, it may be stated that we are going to actually see it develop on the display, as certainly additionally the opposite younger performers introduced thus far.
Mackenyu – Zoro
Speaking of the opposite main actors, the place Luffy is there can solely be Zoro and the expert swordsman of the live-action Netflix won’t be performed by Lewis Tan as some followers of ONE PIECE wished, however by Mackenyu. The Japanese-born American, son of the late actor and martial arts professional Sonny Chiba, is a well-recognized face on the large and small display, each within the West and within the East.
At 25 we have now already seen him in quite a few productions of varied genres, together with different live-action variations equivalent to these of Chihayafuru, Gunjou Senki and Tokyo Ghoul but additionally in an American blockbuster equivalent to Pacific Rim: The Uprising (right here our evaluate of Pacific Rim La Rivolta). With various kinds of roles and the same background behind him, it’s arduous to suppose that he can disappoint within the function of what’s virtually the deputy captain of the Straw Hat Crew.
Emily Rudd – Nami
Probably essentially the most famend among the many performers introduced thus far, and for a while the preferred to seize the function of the attractive navigator, Emily Rudd has been confirmed because the interpreter of Nami to the delight of those that shouted her casting out loud.
At 28, the American actress is technically the oldest of the group and she or he started her journey on the display by taking part in music movies (like Touch by 3LAU feat. Luciana, or I had this factor by Röyksopp) to then transfer on to TV, the place we have now been in a position to admire it in sequence equivalent to The Romanoffs, Dynasty and shortly additionally in Hunters. Most lately she took half within the Netflix horror film trilogy Fear Street as Cindy Berman. Rudd definitely has the stage presence and charisma to convey the artful East Blue cat thief to life and we have now little doubt he may give us an amazing performing efficiency.
Usopp – Jacob Gibson
In addition to the truth that he’s clearly very younger, it isn’t recognized precisely what his age is however between 2018 and 2020 he appeared on tv in well-known serial merchandise equivalent to All Rise, The Resident and ABC ‘s long-running medical drama Grey’s Anatomy and though these had been fleeting appearances (lasting one episode every), these led to him showing in as many as fifteen episodes between the fourth and fifth seasons of the aforementioned Oprah Winfrey Network present, Greenleaf. Whether or not the primary impressions of Gibson will probably be confirmed or not clearly stays to be assessed, however for the second it appears to be a fairly strong selection.

Within minutes it grew to become viral that the actor chosen to play the Mugiwara cook dinner remembered loads of Eminem, main some to say that, no less than visually, he couldn’t match the function. But in actuality from a purely bodily standpoint Skylar wouldn’t be in any respect unhealthy within the function of the womanizer chef, it will be sufficient so as to add a blond tuft and curled eyebrows … And as for expertise, the boy comes from the theater (the present Warheads of which he’s an actor, screenwriter and producer, has additionally acquired a nomination for the celebrated Olivier Award), however he we additionally noticed on the cinema in The Kill Team with Alexander SkarsgArd and Natt Wolff, in Villain, with Craig Fairbrass and George Russo, in addition to in Boiling Point with Stephen Graham. And one thing tells us it may actually be one of many revelations of Netflix live-action.
These, subsequently, the actors who managed to overcome the manufacturing of the present which, along with Oda, searched far and vast throughout the seven seas for those that had been closest to the characters born from the mangaka’s creativeness (as he saved us in reiterate Eiichiro Oda himself on the announcement of the solid of ONE PIECE) and that they had been in a position to materialize in flesh and blood, with a bit of assist from make-up, costumes and particular results, the heroes of the loopy world of ONE PIECE with their unbelievable goals.
