My live-action King of Fighters cast list

Ever since I saw the recent adaptation of "King of Fighters," I just couldn't believe what my eyes were looking at. Afterwards, my love for fighting video games like I had when I was growing up revived. I came up with a brand new graphic novel called "KOF: Battle Dome" which I wouldn't necessarily treat as faithful to the game. Later, I made a cast list that a lot of the fans would have loved. Here it is.

Jon Foo
Actor, Tekken
Jon Foo is an artist working in Los Angeles. He was born in London where he studied art and design at Harrow collage, focusing on product design, sculpture and fine art. Jon had many part time jobs and eventually began a career as an acrobat after being talent scouted at a local open training gym. Jon...
“ Kyo Kusanagi

Jon Foo is my main choice for Kyo because first, he is a practitioner of Wu Shu and has also learned some Muay Thai when he moved to Thailand (and starred in "The Protector" with Tony Jaa) and Karate before he was Ryu in "Street Fighter Legacy." Second, when he played the role of Jin Kazama in "Tekken," I wasn't sure if he looked like Jin at all; he kinda reminded me of the Prince of Flames more.

Despite speaking with a British accent and having a half Chinese and English heritage, I think he could pull off some good Japanese as he did when he was Ryu.

Sean Faris, eat your heart out. ” - ghost_recon456

Leah Dizon
Leah Donna Dizon was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her father (half Chinese and half Filipino) worked as a pastor before joining her mother (French descent) as dealers in a casino. Dizon is the fourth of six children: she has two older brothers, an older sister, and two younger brothers. She graduated from Eldorado High School in 2004 and subsequently moved to Los Angeles...
“ Yuri Sakazaki

J-pop singer Leah Dizon is my #1 choice for Yuri Sakazaki because of her youthful appearance of which anybody can never tell that she's in her mid-20's and her spirited personality on stage as she has starred in "Kiba" and "Traffic in the Sky."

Funny thing, she has no picture whatsoever here. But, if you search for her pics, you might be able to tell that she holds quite a similar resemblance to the Kyokugen princess/Kyo's childhood sweetheart. Plus, her background somewhat comes into play as she is half-Filipino and French-American and Yuri is of mixed heritage as well, which adds to the beauty of both ladies. Hehehe. ” - ghost_recon456

Sanada joined Japan Action Club, organized and run by Sonny Chiba, when he was 12. Sanada first became famous as an action star for his role in The Shogun's Samurai...
“ Saisyu Kusanagi

I applauded Hiroyuki for his performance as Shinbei, the leading character in "Satomi Hakkenden" aka "The Legend of the Eight Samurai" back in the 1980's and recently as the head of Togokhan industries in "Speed Racer."

He is my choice for Saisyu because he has the looks and can perform as the troubled former heir to the Kusanagi ninja clan who turned over to a life of crime as a yakuza boss (with a little Scarface-like attitude) in order to indirectly provide for his family, thus, making his son the next heir to the throne. ” - ghost_recon456
