First of all, credit where credit is due: Photo manipulation was done by my friend Dyeane. 😀 Thanks so much!
[She’s a great artist! Check out her gallery! She didn’t have a lot of time to do this though so it’s not that polished. I think she did this in about 10 minutes 😛 and mostly because she probably felt sorry for how bad it was when I tried to do it. Hehe.]
So anyway, let me tell you what brought about all these.
I was reading a review for the J-Drama Last Friends, and it described Nishikido Ryo‘s character as someone who makes a 180-degree turn all in one episode (and it was the first, too) –he starts out as a patient, loyal boyfriend, and then turns into a rather abusive one.
The site had screen caps of it, and one in particular showed Nishikido-san in a light I’ve never seen him in before. Of course, I’ve had very limited exposure to him (I mostly just see him because he’s in a lot of the videos that Yamapi is in, and well, of course, my attention then would be on Yamapi 😉 ) so far, but anyway, he looked really different from the somewhat cheery, goofy character that he is when he’s with NewS.

He kind of has a dark aura surrounding him, doesn’t he?
Anyway, I showed it to my sister and she said that he looked like an anime in that picture. So I looked at it again and a thought crossed my mind — he didn’t just look like an anime, he looked like a particular anime character:
Light Yagami from Death Note the Anime Series
Okay, so the hair color is different, but there is definitely a similarity in expression and like I said, in their aura. So then I wondered, what if they got Nishikido Ryo as the actor to play Yagami Light in the Death Note movie?
Don’t get me wrong, I love love love Tatsuya Fujiwara. I think he’s a great actor, and he’s cute to boot. But it never hurts to think of them “What If” questions, and this is also for those people (because I’ve seen a lot on the net) who think that Tatsuya Fujiwara looks too girly (or not handsome enough) for the role of Light (Note: I don’t agree with them).
So, yeah… I’m just wondering is all. 😛 I haven’t really seen Nishikido Ryo acting, so I can’t tell if he’d make a good Light Yagami, although he certainly seems handsome enough (at least, in my opinion 😉 ). What do you think?
