Johnny Cage Why they replaced Mullins as Cage I do not know. BRING BACK MULLINS.

Scorpion/Hasashi Hanzo His role as Kazuya would have made me want to exclude him but after seeing him as Scorpion. He kinda redeemed himself.
Actor | Star Trek: First Contact
Bi-Han (Original Sub-Zero, now Noon Saibot) Reprising the Role

Cyrax Bit dissapointed that he didnt use a South African accent as Cyrax is born and raised in Botswana. Tesfay is not South African but he is of Eritrean origin which is East African. He is also a superb martial artist and stunt man.
9. Samantha Jo
Actress | Wonder Woman
Kitana Reprising the role.
10. Michelle Lee
Michelle Lee was born on August 2, 1978 in Long Beach, California, USA as Michelle Charlene Lee. She is known for her work on Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007), Venom (2018) and Pacific Rim (2013).

Stunts | The Avengers
Ermac Reprising the role

Stunts | The Scorpion King
Dan Southworth is an accomplished actor with wide experience in feature films, television shows, motion capture, voice over, and commercials. Power Ranger fans know him as Eric Myers, the Quantum Ranger from Power Rangers Time Force. Mortal Kombat fans enjoyed his portrayal of Kenshi in the popular...
Kenshi Reprising the Role
14. Darren Shahlavi
Actor | I Spy
Darren Shahlavi was seven years old when he started training in martial arts in an old drama theatre in Manchester, England. Inspired by Bruce Lees films and other action movies such as Star Wars, he dreamed of being a movie actor and would show up to his Judo class at the drama hall early to watch...
Kano (R.I.P) Reprising the role. unfortunately this Legend has pass away. Shah Darren Majian Lavi can not return for Kano.
15. Kyle Pryor
Actor | Home and Away
Kano (Recast) Apparently Kano is Australian, so it makes sense for an australian martial arts stunt man to take the role.
16. Brian Tee
Brian Tee can be seen as a series regular on the hit NBC television drama "Chicago Med," produced by Dick Wolf. Tee plays "Dr. Ethan Choi," the sexy doctor on rotation who found his calling in medicine while serving in the Navy. He is a tireless yet impulsive doctor who suffers from his own trauma ...

18. Ray Park
Ray Park was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He moved with his parents, younger brother and sister to London, England, at the age of seven. Ray always wanted to be in the movies, and be like their heroes. He also began to nurture a love for martial arts from the age of seven, when his father's fondness ...
Reptile Park is a British Stunt man and Martial Artist whose role as Toad makes me think he should do Reptile.
19. Jade Quon
Stunts | Transformers: The Last Knight
Queen Swindel Quon is an East Asian stunt woman who needs to take the role of Swindel.
Actor | Serbuan maut 2: Berandal
He is a respected Pencak Silat trainer who toured Europe and was one of the Pencak Silat fighters documented by European Pencak Silat website Saudara Kaum (France). He has a proficiency in the school of Silat Cimande and Panglipur Garut. On an interview with the Indonesian media, he said that he is...
Baraka Baraka practices Silat in one of the MK games so Rahman is my choice for the character. Also South Asian and south East Asian character and martial arts are heavily ignored by Fighting Games. So an actor from the raid series has to show up as Baraka. In addition Baraka's name is Arabic for Praised. In other languages (for Example my Family know Sylheti) Baraka is recognise as a loan word for Praised. Baraka is also a name used by many Muslims and Iko Uwais is a Muslim aswell. Interestingly Baraka's Tarkartan Blades are very similar to the Pata (Gaunlet Sword) a weapon brought to South Asia by the Muslim Mughals.
21. Christine Ebadi
Stunts | Suicide Squad
Born in Iran, raised in Toronto, and daughter to two engineers. As a competitive gymnast, Christine undoubtedly knew what she wanted to be from the very young age of five; Superwoman. As she forges forth with her stunt and stunt acting career, she aims to metaphorically attain her dream.
Ashrah Ashrah's name is Arabic for Ten. Ebadi is of Iranian descent and is a talent stunt woman. So she is very close to Ashrah.
22. Valisa Tate
Stunts | The Sun Is Also a Star
Valisa Tate was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Nolan and Vicki Fischer. She has an older brother, Jonathan, and a younger sister, Justyne. Throughout her formative years, she studied piano, cello, viola, ballet, jazz, modern, tap and gymnastics. She graduated from Kalamazoo Loy Norrix High School ...
Tanya Tate is a beautiful black, stunt woman who I would cast for Tanya. She returned in MKX looking more like Cleopatra in Green rather than an African Woman in Yellow. Not Sure why but it is great to see her return.
23. Nitasha Bhambree
Stunts | The Dark Knight Rises
Jade Jade in MK is dark skinned (darker than Kitana but lighter than Tanya) She is described as "Asianesque" is appearance so I would presume she is West, South or South East Asian. Bhambree is of Sout Asian origin and is a talented stunt woman. It is possible that Jade's martial art is slightly based on Eskrima, Silambam or Lathi Khela. But in the games her fighting styles are referred to as Fan Zi and Kuo Shou.
24. Christian Howard
Stunts | The World's End
Christian Howard was born on May 4, 1984 in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England. He is an actor and writer, known for The World's End (2013), Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist (2014) and Street Fighter: Resurrection (2016).
Kobra It's suprising how much Kobra looks like Ken Masters
Actor | Ssa-i-bo-geu-ji-man-gwen-chan-a
Rain was born in Seoul, South Korea, on June 25, 1982 with the birth name Jung Jihoon. He was extremely shy in elementary school, stating in interviews that he barely spoke a word. He caught the desire to become a dancer when, at a school talent show in sixth grade, no one from his school stepped ...
Rain No not as himself. Rain as the character Rain. Just a happy coincident.
26. Ryan Phillippe
Actor | Crash
Ryan Phillippe was born on September 10, 1974 in New Castle, Delaware, to Susan (Thomas), a nurse, and Richard Phillippe, a chemical technician. He has three sisters, Kirsten, Lindsay, and Katelyn, and attended New Castle Baptist Academy. Ryan's acting career began with the soap opera One Life to ...
Kurtis Striker originally I had Rueben Langdon for Stryker, but I did feel that Langdon was a bit over qualified and for a character like Striker an acrobatic martial artist is not necessary. Ryan Phillippe is an American actor and taekwondo martial artist.. With darker hair he suits Stryker in terms of age and physique.
Tomas Vrbada AKA Smoke Daniel Bodlak is a Czech martial artist and stunt man. I found out that Smoke is of Czech descent on the MK Wiki.
28. Sierra Fisk
Actress | Paddleton
Actress and model Sierra Fisk is a graduate of the University of California San Diego, with her degree in Theatre. Fisk also trained at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England, preparing her for such future roles as Ophelia in "Hamlet," Mia Wallace in "Pulp Shakespeare," Marie in "Woyzeck," ...
Skarlet Im not sure what it is. But Red Heads are hot and I personally would love to see Fisk as the lethal Blood Thirsty Skarlet
29. Steven Dasz
Stunts | Ek Tha Tiger
Steven Dasz was born in 1977 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He started Tae Kwoon Do training when he was ten years old and soon after joined tournaments. In 1992 Steven initiated his training in Japanese martial arts "Ninjitsu" and "Aikido" and participated in competitive gymnastics. Two years after, ...
Mavado Dasz is of Spanish, Italian and Argentinian descent. He is a capable martial artist and stunt man. I chose him for Mavado because Mavado's name is based on the Spanish/Portuguese word: Malvado meaning Evil Man/Person.
30. Abraham Justice
Actor | The Adventures of Tintin
Abraham Justice is an American Actor known for ( Backseat 2018 ) ( Recovery 2018 ) ( Escape Room 2017 ) ( The Adventure of Tin Tin ), He spent his young adulthood in Egypt and after graduating from high school, he attended the Egyptian National Police Academy where he graduated with honors and a ...
Kabal Originally I had Umar Khan as Kabal for this list because I couldn't find anyone closer. Khan is a great martial artist and stunt man but now I've found someone closer to Kabal. Elkest is of Egyptian descent and Kabal's name is Arabic for Fortress. Also Kabal's hooked blades are very similar to Egyptian blades used in Ancient Tahtib.
31. Jay Tavare
Jay Tavare describes himself best when he says he is a storyteller and a citizen of the world.
Jay's acting performances in several Oscar winning films--with some of our era's most talented and acclaimed directors and actors--are the natural outcome of his eclectic life experiences and the direct ...
Nightwolf Booboo Stewart was my choice for nightwolf because he was one of the only few martial art actors I've seen that are native Americans. However I recently remembered Jay Tavare is a Native American martial artist and stunt man. He is acrobatic and I feel that he was unfortunate to play Vega in the 1994 street fighter but nightwolf may be another way to redeem himself.
32. Gloria O'Brien
Stunts | Planet of the Apes
Gloria O'Brien, started her career with her first commercial at the age of 6. She performed in films, television, records and on stage her entire childhood and teenage years as singer and actress. By the time she was 15 she'd been in 100 films, television shows and commercials, seven Disney Albums,...
Sonya Blade With the introduction of Cassie Cage, I realised that my actress for Sonya and Johnny had a very large age gap so I've now gotten someone closer to Matt Mullins physical age.
33. Allison Caetano
Stunts | Inception
Cassie Cage Needed a young blonde stunt woman for Cassie since her introduction to MKX.
34. Sofia Boutella
Actress | Star Trek Beyond
Sofia Boutella is an Algerian actress, dancer and model. She was born in the Bab El Oued district of Algiers in Algeria, the daughter of composer and jazz musician Safy Boutella, and an architect mother. She started classical dance education when she was five years old. In 1992, at age 10, she left...
D'Vorah D'veroh is the Queen Bee lady from MKX. Her name is a common middle-eastern/West Asian name used by Jews and Muslims. In Hebrew it means Bee and in Arabic it means Hive. I felt that Algerian Dancer Boutella would be suitable considering the background of D'Vorah's name and the fact that Bees apparently communicate with each other by "Dancing".
35. Dalip Singh
Actor | Get Smart
Dalip Singh was born on August 27, 1972 in Dhirana, Himachal Pradesh, India as Dalip Singh Rana. He is an actor, known for Get Smart (2008), The Longest Yard (2005) and MacGruber (2010). He has been married to Harminder Kaur since February 27, 2002.
Kintaro Dalip Singh being a 7'1" tall wrestler would be great for the character. I felt the Tiger look of the guy kinda reminded of the Bengal Tiger so I thought *beep* it. Kintaro is a south Asian Shokan.
36. Nathan Jones
Actor | Mad Max: Fury Road
Nathan Jones rose upon the world strongman scene in 1995 and showed promise to become perhaps the top competitor in the world. At 6' 11" and 360 lbs., the giant Australian known as Megaman was an imposing sight and used his great size and strength to place high in the World Musclepower ...
Goro We all know that Goro is the original four armed monster of MK. I feel that ever since I saw Nathan Jones in Tom-Yum-Goong I thought that with an extra pair of arms he'd kinda look like Goro.
37. Marjean Holden
Actress | Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
Actress, stunt woman, dancer and martial artist Marjean Holden was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and raised in Vail, Colorado. She started acting from the age of 9, well being from the family of entertainers, she already knew her profession. As a youngster, she showed multiple skills in her school...
Sheeva I'm hoping Holden isn't too old for this character. Considering that Sheeva is tall and dark skinned I think 6' tall and black beauty Marjean Holden can bring this iconic Amazonian Shoken Warrioress to life.
38. Daniel Cudmore
Actor | X-Men: The Last Stand
Born in Vancouver and raised in Squamish, British Columbia, Daniel grew up in an athletic household. The middle of three boys, Daniel excelled at a number of different sports including ski racing, snowboarding, football and rugby. However, in addition to his vast interest in athletics, Daniel ...
Torr Tall muscular Canadian actor Daniel Cudmore is who I'd definitely cast for Torr. The new MKX character is not alone tho.
39. Grace Bruce
Stunts | World War Z
Ferra Grace Bruce is a 5'1" tall British stunt woman and martial artist. I feel her small statue would make life a lot easier for her and Cudmore to work together.
Stunts | Yip Man
Born in Hong Kong, Sammo Hung's acting career began while he was training in acrobatics, martial arts and dance as a child at the China Drama Academy, and he received acclaim for his performance with a troupe called "The Seven Little Fortunes." He made his feature film debut as an actor at the age ...
Bo Rai Cho Sammo Hung may not be the fattest east asian out there. But he has acted in plenty of Martial Arts films and plus he does look the role facially.
Stunts | Blast
born Martin Kimko Luckhurst in Japan to Korean mother Ai Hyun Kim and American father former Darby's Ranger Sargent Judson Baker Luckhurst. Fourth child out of five siblings, soon they divorced when he was aged 3 and brought up at age 7 by his stepmother Ottillie Weinholdt who married his dad in ...
Shao Kahn Due to the origin of his surname I always imagined Shao Kahn to be Asian (specifically mongolian). Kimko is actually half korean and hald caucasian. He knows Kung-fu and several other martial arts. Shao Kahn practices Dai Tzi and Leu Wei (might have spelt those wrong)
42. Khotan Fernandez
Actor | Royal Pains
Khotan Fernandez was born in Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico as Khotan Fernández Tapajos. He is an actor and producer, known for Royal Pains (2009), Graves (2016) and Al Otro Lado del Muro (2018).
Kotal Kahn. He and Mileena start a civil war in Outworld over the title of Kahn/Kahnum of Outworld. Kotal Kahn is based on Aztec gods and looks remarkably similar to Ogre in Tekken. Khotan is a Mexican actor who is 6'2" tall which should work for the Kahn as it matches Kimko's height. Is also is fluent in English, Spanish and Portugese.
43. Hal Yamanouchi
Actor | The Wolverine
Scholastically sound and versed in several languages, Hal Yamanouchi has not lacked for work or means to keep busy. Born in Japan, his collegiate years were dedicated to studying language and literature. He attended the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies as well as the Perugia (Italy) University ...
Shinnok. I personally saw Shinnok as Japanese as his name sounds like it. I felt Hal was suited for the role due to his age and the fact he is capable at imitating martial arts movements and has had growing experience in Martial arts. He also knows his way around portraying evil villains.
44. JeeJa Yanin
Actress | Chocolate
Yanin "Jeeja" pronounced "ChiCha" Vismitananda was born in Bangkok, Thailand. Her mother is Prasita Vismitananda and her father, Pawadol Borirak, was a businessman who died when his daughter was 17, she has an older brother, Nantapong "Jeed" Vismitananda. She is mainly of Thai descent with some ...
Suchin Mother of Takahashi Takeda and lover of Kenshi. Suchin rasied Takeda with her mother and without Kenshi aware of his son's existence. She was killed by Red Dragon assassin's who were after Kenshi. She was skilled enough to kill three of them with ease before being gun down. She is of Thai descent so a female Thai martial arts actress like Yanin is perfect for the role.
45. Booboo Stewart
Booboo Stewart was thrust into the spotlight with his winning the coveted role of Seth Clearwater in the The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010) and reprising the role in both The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (2012). At age 10 Booboo began his...
Takahashi Takeda. Reprising the role. In Mortal Kombat X Takeda is one of the most mix raced characters. He is a quarter Caucasian, quarter Japanese through Kenshi and half Thai through Suchin. Stewart is a skilled martial arts actor and martial artist himself. He is also very mixed race, His mother is a mix of East Asian ethnicities (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) and is Father is half Blackfoot (Half Native American) and one quarter Russian one quarter Scottish (Half White). This makes Stewart Half East Asian, Quarter Caucasian (1/8 Russian 1/8 Scottish) and quarter Blackfoot.
46. Brandon Soo Hoo
Actor | Tropic Thunder
Kung Jin The younger cousin of Kung Lao. I heard Lewis Tan earned the role but I felt Soo Hoo is more suitable because he is of Chinese descent and is younger. Lewis tan is also 6'2" tall which would mean Jin is about the same height as Kotal Kahn. Zhenwei Wang was another possible choice but I felt Soo Hoo's sharp facial features and slightly broad nose resembled Jin whilst Wang has a more rounded face.
47. James Lew
Stunts | Luke Cage
Raised in South Central Los Angeles, James Lew's destiny was to answer a cattle call in Hollywood for the hugely popular Kung Fu (1972) television series. He went on to star in the now collectible Hong Kong film, Young Dragon (1979). He made the move to big budget studio films in 1984. John ...
Quan-Chi I felt that Quan Chi had to be played by an East Asian since his name sounds like it originates from that region. James Lew is an East Asian stunt man and martial arts actor who suits this role.
Stunts | Wonder Woman
Sareena. I have no clue what Sareena is supposed to look like ethnically. If the name Sareena is derived from Sarah which is West Asian then that could be the origin. However I've always wanted to have Facchinello for a martial arts role and I feel she could pull off Sareena.
49. Lauren Mary Kim
Stunts | Furious Seven
Lauren Mary Kim is the faceless action hero that brings adrenaline to films and television. Lauren has a strong handle on acting, combat training, and stunt work. She is known for her work on Star Trek (2009), Furious 7 (2015) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), and recently doubled as ...
Li Mei Lauren Mary Kim is an American martial arts stunt woman who I think is of mixed Korean and Caucasian descent. I feel she could play a convincing Li Mei.
50. Anna Ranoso
Stunts | Into the Storm
Frost Another member of Thousand Pounds stunt team. Anna Ranoso had appeared in many YouTube videos with her colleague and rival Amy Johnston. She has impressed me and I feel she deserved a mention on one of my lists.
51. Marko Zaror
Actor | Alita: Battle Angel
Marko Zaror Aguad (Santiago, Chile) is a Chilean martial arts action star and fight choreographer, currently residing in Los Angeles, California. His career began as a young boy with a passion for martial arts and fighting, inspired by Bruce Lee. At the age of six he started training himself, and ...
Tremor Tremor has been released on MKX as dlc character and the one thing that stood out was his height. He towers over his fellow "ninjas" so a tall martial arts actor like Zaror would be perfect. In addition, Tremor's style of using Rocks/Earth products kinda reminds me of an exaggeration of Tinku. A Bolivian martial art that uses Rocks to greater increase the force of a punch. So a South American actor is also fitting.
52. Azim Rizk
Actor | Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
Azim Rizk was born on September 4, 1990 in Tucson, Arizona, USA. He is known for his work on Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (2016).
Havik Andrew Tinio had suggested I find an actor for Havik. When researching into Havik I found that his Snake style Kung-Fu immediately reminded me of Azim Rizk. Azim is an American actor famous for player Black/Green ranger: Jake in Power Rangers Megaforce. In the Intro of Megaforce Jake (Azim Rizk) is seen practicing Snake style Kung-Fu because when training under Jungle Fury Red Ranger Cassie he was told he possesses the Snake Spirit. Azim himself is actually a stunt man who is well talented in Parkour and martial arts. I wouldn't be surprised if he actually learnt Snake Style Kung-Fu.
Actor | Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist
Shogen actively takes part in various productions around the world. He played one of the main role Young Goken in "Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist" and FBI agent Raye Penber in "Death Note" etc.
His debut film was "Bloody Snake Under The Sun" (2005) which described life in Okinawa in the postwar ...
Fujin Ally of Raiden and God of the Wind. Fujin appears as one of the none playable characters in MKX and I feel Shogen from Assassin's Fist should go for this role. He is skilled in Karate, has long hair and is at least 6' tall which should match up to McInnis.
54. Lauren Okadigbo
Stunts | Justice League
Jacqui Briggs I had trouble finding a young Black actress who was skilled in Martial Arts and is capable of doing her own stunts. Lauren Okadigbo is a martial arts actress, model, dancer and stunt woman. She is of Nigerian and Finnish descent so she could get away with an African American. She is also 5'7" and in her late twenties so she should match up to Booboo Stewart. For more info on her here is a link: *beep*
55. Michael Rowe
Actor | Arrow
Best known for his portrayal of the iconic DC Comics' antihero Deadshot, Michael Rowe's first passion was music. A native of St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, after ten years as songwriter and drummer for the post-hardcore/punk band Bucket Truck and sharing the stage with the likes of NOFX, Slayer,...
Erron Black Erron Black is mysterious cowboy character who works for Kotal Kahn. he is considered to one of the most dangerous warriors. Whilst he does look like a character Clint Eastwood would portray. I wanted an american martial artist. Rowe played Deadshot in Arrow so it seems like if Neatherrealm ever to MK v DC again. I can see Black vs Deadshot
