This time on DRAGON BALL Z!

I like most of the internet am a Dragon Ball Fan. I grew up watching the Anime, I read the Manga and I love the series. I had decided to venture on the road on how to properly do a Dragon Ball Z Fan Cast. Well I hope you enjoy this Work, I hope you find the ideas and the cast I put into this to be a compelling way to do Dragon Ball Z Appropriately on the Big Screen.
Warning: This is not a cast for an All Asian adaptation of Dragon Ball

Warning: I cut some characters out of this cast, simply so that it wouldn't get cluttered, The memorable ones I cut are: Bubbles, Gregory, and Princess Snake. Any Others that were cute were a tear bellow them. And might have seemed a bit much for this cast, and a reasonable adaptation might at least cut Princess Snake...

Author's Note: Before this cast really begins, I will have a small bit to say about the creation of it. Why I did it, what my vision for a Dragon Ball Movie would be. But while reading the cast I would appreciate it if you all took the time to look at all choices, I know for many there could be a choice that immediately kills the entire article for you, I understand but I would appreciate it if you Looked at all choices and gave a fair and honest look. If not for respect of me, out of respect you would have for doing Fan Cast. I also understand that many of you will have your own choices, I am fine with that, but please keep those choices to yourself. This is a fan cast I had prepared to be reviewed and commented on. If you do have choices for these character do yourself, and me a favor, make your own fan cast. Give everyone a chance to see your vision, and allow everyone to appropriately see mine. I'd also like to thank you in advance for reading and Commenting on this. I know many might just out-right hate it, but that means you still took time too look at my cast and give an honest opinion and even if said opinion is laced with criticism I appreciate it. Thank You - Robert Garlen

In thinking of doing a Dragon Ball Movie, I have always wondered... Why? Why, as an American, do I need Dragon Ball to be Americanized? The story doesn't have anything wrong with it, I don't think any American filmmaker can make this story better, the action more exciting, the humor any funnier... Why does anyone need an American Dragon Ball? Truth is, we don't. We want one, for good reasons. We like it, we cherish it, we want some way of getting more of it, and if the story can't continue we want to see it again. We want to have it with us, following all parts of our lives because for many of us it was a generation of terrible cartoons and real life monsters. Dragon Ball taught us that if we work hard enough we can beat these monsters, or rise above what fear they instill in us. We want Dragon Ball, even more-so, we want a Dragon Ball that's made for us! We want one made for the fans of the old series, of the original Manga and we want to have the filmmakers all but look us in the eye and say "This is because you earned it!" But that doesn't give us a purpose for an American or Hollywood version of Dragon Ball. We want one that has the money put into it from Hollywood but the heart and soul of fans. Filmmakers who might be Independent or of an International appeal. But there's no soul in just making a Dragon Ball film. You have to have something to say with it. You have to have a vision.

I have a Vision. One that doesn't force a rewrite of Dragon Ball's story, not a vision that needs to be something else, but one that is easy to put into Dragon Ball without betraying what we love about it. It's a simple vision that would make it something deep and memorable to the kids of today, to teach them more and more. Dragon Ball already to stands for so much. But if it has to be American, and if we want it to feel like the same story maybe it can stand for just one more thing... Maybe without changing it we can make it about something that means as much to us on this side of the world, as Dragon Ball does to other.

My vision is to take Dragon Ball and use it to teach history. To use the characters as the Saiyans and cast Native American, Haiwaiin, or Actors of that Decent and complection. To use Saiyans as Native Americans. You would have the Oozaru transformation which is akin to Native American Skin walkers, and the Super Saiyan in this verison would represent "The Blond Indian." It's an Idea to divert away from doing "The Great White Hope" and instead poise the "Whites" In a villainous role in a subtle manner. I wanted to use an American as Frieza and Actors of African Decent to play the Namekians. Frieza's destruction of Planet Vegeta would Represent the trail of Tears. I wanted to use European Actors or Actors of German decent to represent The Red Ribbon Army, so that the RR Army could represent Nazi's and Russians from the 60's. It's a way of teaching history, through the eyes of a member of a nearly extinct Race, similar to how the Saiyans themselves are. It doesn't re-write Dragon Ball, with any exceptions that would be made to fit the series into a script, it puts a meaning behind an American adaptation. It allows it to be deeper to A Hollywood oriented Audience that would say something big for those who look. The subject of Native American Persecution is still a very taboo point in films, only a few ever tackle it and this is a way to tackle it with something that fits that everyone will see. I wanted to do something like that with Dragon Ball, so I did this cast. As a cast it can only say so much and I can only do so much with a cast but it's an attempt at something deeper than any other cast.

I wanted to do Dragon Ball Z only if I could make something fresh out of it that no one else could or would, but I didn't want to do something that would change it. I think this is a cast that accomplishes What I'd like and I think it would be a good compromise to everyone. I think my vision for Dragon Ball, while not the best, is a certainly usable and very reasonable take. It could bring Dragon Ball into a serious film franchise and make it something deep and wonderful. It could be more than just a half hearted remake of the series and be a genially enjoyable film.

Executive Producer: An executive producer (EP) enables and backs up the making of a commercial entertainment product. He or she is concerned with management accounting and possibly with associated legal issues (like copyrights or royalties). An EP also contributes to the film's budget, and does not work on set.

James Cameron [Notable Works {As A Producer}: Avatar, Sanctum, Battle Angel {Forthcoming}]: He's a well regarded iconic filmmaker. He has been working on his Sci-Fi Series Avatar, and being that that whole franchise is being funded by Fox, it's easy to imagine they'd go to the Billion-Dollar Man and ask him to take a hand in building a Dragon Ball Z Franchise, in hopes of another Billion Dollar Entity at the studio. Certainly Jim could have Ideas for it and could bring in others to really get the ball going and give a Dragon Ball Z film that would be appealing.

Thomas Tull [Notable Works: Godzilla, King Arthur, Pacific Rim]: He's been with Legendary pictures and lately Legendary has been putting out some good films, it's clear they have some Japanese Cultured fans, after doing a big Budget Godzilla and the Anime Inspired Pacific Rim, you could certainly imagine them having an interest in Dragon Ball, especially with Thomas on board in the financial market.

Frank Marshall [Notable Works: Indiana Jones{Film Franchise}, The Last Airbender, War Horse]: He was attached to the best Indiana Jones Movies, he made a serious attempt at brining Cartoon to life with the Last Airbender, unfortunately it had a few pieces that kept it from being what it could have been, but if he brings his all and puts the effort he'd certainly be a wonderful producer to make an Adventure story in Dragon Ball.

Tom DeSanto [Notable Works: X-Men, Transformers, X2: X-Men United]: Outside of having his name attached too two of the film industries {currently} most profitable franchises, he's a Producer worth his metal.

Frank Darabont [Notable Works {As A Producer}: The Walking Dead {Seasons 1&2}, The Mist, Mob City]: Frank is one of my favorite filmmakers, he's deeply rooted to what he does and always takes his role in putting a film or television series together seriously. It'd be interesting to get him on set and get him to work on Dragon Ball.

Charles Knight [Notable Works: Spartacus, Power Rangers: Mystic Force, Tankboy]: His work on Power Rangers: Mystic Force was actually the big draw, Knowing he kept to his guns on that series and helped it get to be as popular to children as it was. He also developed critically acclaimed Spartacus for Starz which is another reason to draw him in, He puts his money in good projects or projects so bad, they're good for cheese alone.

Joel Silver [Notable Works: Lethal Weapon, Speed Racer, The Matrix]: Joel Silver is a legendary producer, his name is behind some of Warner Bros.' most memorable films. Having recently left Warners it would be a real treat to see him team with 20th Century and Develop some of their lesser known or cared about projects, including Dragon Ball.

Lorenzo Di Bonaventura [Notable Works: Transformers {Franchise}, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, G.I. Joe Retaliation]: He's been putting the Pieces back together on big 80's Franchises since taking over G.I. Joe Retaliation and with the work behind that and the amount of care it got, it would be absolutely fantastic to see him make a serious effort to get Dragon Ball done right.

Lindsey Collins [Notable Works: John Carter, Finding Dory, Wall-E]: It's no secret I am a huge fan of John Carter, and Her work with that film is notable, having seriously put every effort to help that movie succeed {despite it's ultimate fate as an flop} I think she could have the magic to break free of Disney and join to do a fantastic adaptation of Dragon Ball.

Akira Toriyama [Notable Works {As A Producer}: Dragon Ball Evolution, Dragon Ball Z Battle of the Gods]: He created Dragon Ball, he was one of the driving forces behind getting Battle of the Gods made, a Dragon Ball film set in canon which has been getting critical praise from many Fans, Akira is a honest man and certainly puts his strength into making what is his better. I think Honestly to do Dragon Ball right you need him to be the loudest producer and the head of the team. It wouldn't be hard to imagine him wanting to be onset everyday watching every frame of film and making sure it is just right!

Production Designer {Earth/Namek Landscapes Settings}: A production designer or P.D is the person responsible for the overall look of a filmed event such as films, TV programs, video games, music videos or adverts. Production designers have one of the key creative roles in the creation of motion pictures and television. Working directly with the director and producer, they must select the settings and style to visually tell the story.

Nathan Crowley [Notable Works: John Carter, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception]: He's done amazing work, he's a fantastic designer, he's created authentic alien worlds, wonderful designs that take us to another realm of reality and show the world beyond. He would bring us a wonderful Earth and a beautiful Namek and a savage Planet Vegeta.

Production Designer/Concept Artist {Alien/Ships Settings}: A production designer or P.D is the person responsible for the overall look of a filmed event such as films, TV programs, video games, music videos or adverts. Production designers have one of the key creative roles in the creation of motion pictures and television.

Ryan Church [Notable Works: Star Trek, Avatar, Star Trek Into Darkness]: Ryan's work on the Latest Star Trek films have done well too bring the design of the Original Enterprise and update it to fit the concepts of the modern future. Ryan has taken simple ideas and turned them into gold, for anyone to design the Dragonball ships, and props I would vote for Ryan.

Practical Effects/Make-Up Alien Effects: The use of special effects techniques enhancing physical features to exhibit metaphysical characteristics as well as fantasy makeup. The use of prosthetics and plaster casting are also required for projects that entails non-human appearances. Accents such as theatrical blood and ooze are also techniques applicable to this type of makeup. FX makeup can also include creature design, building three-dimensional sculpted models for video games and film.

Legacy Effects [Notable Works: X-Men Days of Future Past, The Avengers, John Carter]: They have done the practical effects and designs on many well known films. They have done amazing work and I would love to see them work on Alien and creatures, creating the visual make-up for character's like Frieza and Cell would be absolutely phenomenal. They are true Artist.

Digital Effects: the various processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated outside the context of a live action shot. Visual effects involve the integration of live-action footage and generated imagery to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, or simply impossible to capture on film. Visual effects using computer generated imagery has recently become accessible to the independent filmmaker with the introduction of affordable and user friendly animation and compositing software.

Industrial Light and Magic [Notable Works: Star Wars {Film Franchise}, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness]: ILM is the foremost experts of digital visual effects. They have done Iconic work in many iconic films, to consider anyone else as vfx artists for this is logical, but in truth ILM is the most qualified.

Costume Designer {Z Fighters}: A costume designer is a person who designs costumes for a film or stage production. The role of the costume designer is to create the characters and balance the scenes with texture and color, etc.The costume designer works alongside the director, scenic, lighting designer, sound designer, and other creative personnel. The costume designer may also collaborate with hair stylist, wig master, or makeup artist. In European theatre, the role is different, as the theatre designer usually designs both costume and scenic elements.

Penny Rose [Notable Works: Pirates of the Carribean {Franchise}, 47 Ronin, King Arthur]: Her work is absolutely wonderful. She really capture the essence of style in her work on Pirates of the Carribean, her work on 47 Ronin definitely had an anime feel to it and King Arthur was wonderfully noble in design. No doubt she has many different frames of reference to really give each Z-Fighter their own distinct style yet almost uniform them.

Costume Designer {Saiyan Fighting Armor}: A costume designer is a person who designs costumes for a film or stage production. The role of the costume designer is to create the characters and balance the scenes with texture and color, etc.The costume designer works alongside the director, scenic, lighting designer, sound designer, and other creative personnel. The costume designer may also collaborate with hair stylist, wig master, or makeup artist. In European theatre, the role is different, as the theatre designer usually designs both costume and scenic elements.

Mayes C Rubeo [Notable Works: Avatar, John Carter, Dragonball Evolution]: I'll be the first to admit, DBE was a sloppy adaptation. I can honestly say i don't hold the Costumes against it though. But I would really like to give Mayes a chance to do something different by giving her interpretation of the Saiyan Battle Amor and giving her some room to work with. Her work on John Carter is inspired and It really comes to heart when looking at the film. I also loved her work on Avatar so I feel as if I can have faith in her as a costume designer to give us a tactical interpretation of the classic Saiyan Armor.

Costume Designer {Androids}:A costume designer is a person who designs costumes for a film or stage production. The role of the costume designer is to create the characters and balance the scenes with texture and color, etc.The costume designer works alongside the director, scenic, lighting designer, sound designer, and other creative personnel. The costume designer may also collaborate with hair stylist, wig master, or makeup artist. In European theatre, the role is different, as the theatre designer usually designs both costume and scenic elements.

Alexandra Byrne [Notable Works: The Avengers, Thor, Finding Neverland]: She has a wonderful style, as displayed by her work in The Marvel Cinematic Universe. She was someone I really wanted in this but I wasn't sure which she would fit, and Finally decided that she would be best to design the Androids, she could bring that otherworld-ness sense to it and really make it subtlety-uniformed.

Hairstylist/Hair Designer: A hairdresser is a person whose occupation is to cut or style hair in order to change or maintain a person's image. This is achieved using a combination of hair coloring, haircutting, and hair texturing techniques. Most hairdressers are professionally licensed as either a hairdresser, a barber or a cosmetologist

Linda D Flowers [Notable Works: The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Captain America The First Avenger]: Linda has done pretty fantastic and notable work on Hunger Games films, she gave many characters insane and outlandish hairstyles that simply belong to an anime/manga. Certainly if anyone could bring any of the insane and famous hair styles found in the Dragon Ball Universe.

Director of Photography: A cinematographer (usually credited with the title director of photography, or DP) is the chief over the camera and lighting crews working on a film and responsible for achieving artistic and technical decisions related to the image. The study and practice of this field is referred to as cinematography.

David Tattersall [Notable Works: The Green Mile, Star Wars {Pre-Trilogy}, Mob City]: He has the beautiful visuals the demand attention. He made the rustic 30's of the Green Mile beautiful, he made the depressing 20's of Mob City light up in truth, and with teh Star Wars pre-Trilogy he captured the beauty of the original films, and adapted them to a more advanced setting. He would certainly deliver us a great live action view of Dragon Ball Z.

Film Editor: Film editing is part of the creative post-production process of filmmaking. The term film editing is derived from the traditional process of working with film, but now it increasingly involves the use of digital technology.

Eric Zumbrunnen [Being John Malkovich, John Carter, Adaptation.]: I love his work as a film Editor, his cut work in John Carter certainly gave me emotional residence for the main character, His action work works really well and put drama, heart, and action very well cut into the film.

Composer: A film score (also sometimes called film music, background music, or incidental music) is original music written specifically to accompany a film. The score forms part of the film's soundtrack, which also usually includes dialogue and sound effects, and comprises a number of orchestral, instrumental or choral pieces called cues which are timed to begin and end at specific points during the film in order to enhance the dramatic narrative and the emotional impact of the scene in question.

Michael Giacchino [Notable Works: Star Trek, Speed Racer, John Carter]: I love Michael's work with John Carter, it's deep methodical and bears resemblance to old Disney films, HIs work with Star Trek is all love and adventure, and his Speed Racer is a wonderful wonderful updating of the Anime music. He's a composer perfect for Dragon Ball!

Screenplay: A screenplay or script is a written work by screenwriters for a film, video game or television program. These screenplays can be original works or adaptations from existing pieces of writing. In them, the movement, actions, expression, and dialogues of the characters are also narrated. A play for television is also known as a teleplay.

Steve Kloves [Notable Works: Wonder Boys, The Amazing Spider-Man, Harry Potter{Film Franchise}]: He's a fantastic screenwriter, does a fantastic work adapting character-tropes and built character arcs around them. He has literally taken thousand paged books and adapted them into movies, if anyone could take the massive seasons of Dragon Ball Z or the Numerous Chapters of the Manga and put them into coherent film scripts, Steve Kloves is your man.

Director: Directors are responsible for overseeing creative aspects of a film under the overall control of the film producer. They often develop the vision for a film and carry out the vision, deciding how the film should look, in other words they make their vision come to life. They are responsible for turning the script into a sequence of shots. They also direct what tone it should have and what an audience should gain from the cinematic experience. Film directors are responsible for deciding camera angles, lens effects and lighting with the help of the cinematographer and set design with the production designer. They will often take part in hiring the cast and key crew members. They coordinate the actors' moves, or blocking and also may be involved in the writing, financing and editing of a film.

Andrew Stanton [Notable Works: John Carter, Finding Nemo, Wall-E]: Andrew is one of my favorite directors. I love his John Carter film. To me it is the modern day Richard Donner Superman. It is a great film and I think he has enormous talent as a director. He has an amazing eye for visuals and really pulls out the best performances a director could hope for. He is a smart caster and a great motivator. He would absolutely take to heart everything about Dragon Ball and make a real film with it. His work on it would have a purpose and It could definitely become the trilogy he hoped John Carter would be.

Goku [Height: 5' 9", Age: 20's-30's]: Cheerful, courageous and also quite naive, Goku is a Saiyan originally sent to Earth as an infant with the mission to destroy it. However, an accident alters his memory, causing him to grow up pure-hearted and later become Earth's greatest defender, as well as the informal leader of the Z Fighters. Throughout his life, he trains hard and strives to be the greatest warrior possible, while at the same time using his amazing strength and skills to uphold peace.

Rudy Youngblood [Height: 5' 11", Age: 31/32, Notable Works: Apocalypto, Beatdown, Into the Americas]: This will be a tough sell.. I've noticed his work since Apocalypto, he played Jaguar Paw, was pretty well noticeable. He did well in that film, He's done other work since then but it's mostly b-movie schlock, that was only good for seeing Good-Actors feeding themselves and Bad actors chewing up scenery in the best ways. But he hasn't had many big movies since, He's got a real sense of fun to him that makes him a prime candidate for the Goku Role, I think he'd bring fun and charisma and really play the character as he's known from the manga. I have no doubt that he would play a perfect Goku and really stand out as an actor should.

Chi-Chi [Height: 5' 4", Age: 20's-30's]: the daughter of the Ox-King who later marries Goku and becomes the loving mother of Gohan. She was first introduced as a shy and fearful girl, but later, as she gets older, develops a very tomboyish, tough and fierce personality, which sometimes causes her to have anger outbursts seen several times throughout the series. Despite this, she has shown her love for Goku and their sons many times throughout the series.

Rosa Kato [Height: 5' 3", Age: 28, Notable Works: Pokemon Diamond and Pearl {Japanese Dub}, Oh! My Girl!!!, Detroit Metal City]: A fantastic and utterly beautiful Japanese Actress. She has grown a bit of fame in Japan and Has shown immense talent. No doubt that she would be a wonderful Chi-Chi.

Gohan [Height: N/A, Age: Pre-Teen,Teen]: Gohan is a shy and studious intellectual child. As a child, he lacks the Saiyan fighting spirit. He must utilize his incredible half-breed Saiyan potential and emotional reserves to protect those he loves, becoming one of the most powerful Z Fighters. As an adult, he achieves his dream career of becoming a great scholar.

Joseph E. Foy [Height: N/A, Age: N/A, Notable Works: The Lone Ranger]: I don't have a whole lot of reason to cast him, but there's something about him that brings me to want to cast him as Gohan. I think he's really got something that would give him a chance to really shine.

Prince Vegeta [Height: 5' 5", Age: 20's-30's]: Regal, egotistical and full of pride, Vegeta was once a ruthless, cold-blooded warrior and outright killer, but later abandons his role in the planet trade, instead opting to remain and live on Earth, fighting alongside the Z Fighters; all the while striving to become the universe's most powerful warrior, specifically with the mission to defeat and surpass Goku in power. His character evolves from villain, to anti-hero to protagonist through the course of the series.

Alex Meraz [Height: 5' 11", Age: 29, Notable Works: Twilight Saga {Franchise}, Freedom Riders, Mine Games]: Outside of the guy's purely sinister look. He's got some real talent in terms of acting. He could definitely match whit with My Goku choice and really harness the character of Vegeta as he was written in the manga. He'd be fantastic as Vegeta and really get into the role and really shine in a Dragon Ball film.

Bulma [Height: 5' 5", Age: 20's-30's]: She is a scientist and the second daughter of Capsule Corporation's founder Dr. Brief and his wife Mrs. Brief, the younger sister of Tights, and is Goku's first friend. She used to be the girlfriend of Yamcha, but moved on and, eventually, became the wife of Vegeta. With him she had a son named Trunks and a daughter named Bulla. She lives in West City all her life, and her address is listed as WST 3338926 K. Her Citizen Number is SSC 41453.

Olivia Thirlby [Height: 5' 4", Age: 27, Notable Works: Dredd, Juno, The Darkest Hour]: She's a beautiful and wonderful actress. She gives such wonderful performance whenever she comes onscreen. She is wonderful and would have the spunk and attitude of Bulma nailed.

Piccolo [Height: 7' 5", Age: N/A]: A wise, expert strategist who was originally a ruthless enemy of Goku, Piccolo later becomes a permanent member of the Z Fighters during Dragon Ball Z, specifically when he forms a close bond with Goku's son Gohan after training him in preparation for the impending arrival of the Saiyans and other future threats.

Rob Riley [Height: 6' 1 1/2", Age: 32/33, Notable Works: Bourne Legacy, Hit the Floor, The Trade Off]: A decent actor, who has yet to really have a chance to shine. He's got strong features as an actor and being a mostly unknown actor plays to his advantage. He'd do fantastic as Piccolo. He's got strength and heart to really pull of the brooding Namekian. No doubt he'd be perfect to bring Piccolo to life.

Krillin [Height: 5' 0", Age: 20's-30's]:Krillin is a good-natured, outgoing and competitive martial artist. His only true vice seems to be his interest in women, though as the series progresses, his intentions lean more romantic, and in dangerous situations, he sometimes despairs about possibly dying unmarried. Once a fierce rival of Goku, he quickly became his best friend while training under Master Roshi. He also is close to Goku's son, Gohan. He eventually marries Android 18 and settles down.

Jay Chou [Height: 5' 8", Age: 35, Notable Works: Green Hornet, Secret, Slam Dunk]: Jay is a funny actor and a huge hit in Asia. He's a noted singer but he's got some good comedic timing. He'd definitely has the comedic chops and action-movie style physique. He'd certainly would be a strong and more involved Krillin as the character was in the Early seasons of DBZ.

Yamcha [Height: 6' 0", Age: 20's-30's]: A former desert bandit, Yamcha was once an enemy of Goku, but quickly reformed and became a lifelong friend and ally.[5] Brave, boastful and dependable, Yamcha is a very talented martial artist and one of the most gifted Humans on Earth, possessing skills and traits that allow him to fight alongside his fellow Z Fighters when major threats loom.

Shiloh Fernandez [Height: 5' 10", Age: 29, Notable Works: Red Riding Hood, Evil Dead, Deadgirl]: I enjoy Shiloh as an actor, he's got some real fun to him and a sense of charm that I feel is perfect for Yamcha. He's certainly got the looks to bring Ladies to the crowd and that is a key feature in the character. He's certainly a fitting choice.

Tien Shinhan [Height : 6' 1", Age: 20's-30's]:Heavily devoted to martial arts, reclusive and disciplined, Tien Shinhan is one of the strongest Humans within the Dragon Ball universe. He battles alongside the other Z Fighters when major threats to the Earth surface, often courageously engaging enemies far more powerful than himself. However, he spends most of his time training with his lifelong best friend, Chiaotzu.

Adan Canto [Height: 6' 1", Age: 32/33, Notable Works: X-Men Days of Future Past, The Following, Mixology]: Adan is a neat actor. He was pretty fun in DOFP and looking onto his other work I'm sure others could agree He'd be a great Tien, and add a dash of international flavor to the cast.

Chioatzu [Height: 4' 6", Age: N/A]: a white-skinned, red-cheeked little Human who appears in the Dragon Ball manga, and in the animes Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, He is the constant companion to Tien Shinhan, his best friend, and along with Tien, he was one of Master Shen's students.

Shaobo Qin [Height: 5' 0", Age: 32, Notable Works: Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, Ocean's Thirteen]: He's a often considered for Krillin but I didn't see him in that role. He's got a very limited acting resume, Only doing 3 films. But I did want to see him as Chioatzu.

Future Trunks [Height: 5 '6", Age: N/A]: Trunks, is the Saiyan and Human hybrid son of Vegeta and Bulma from the alternate future. By the time Present Trunks was born, the timeline had been altered by Future Trunks' and Cell's trips to the past. Therefore, the two Trunks had completely different lives (as opposed to those who lived before the Time Machines arrived, they lived exactly the same lives as their counterparts until the point at which the two timelines diverge: three years before the androids arrived).

Booboo Stewart [Height: 5' 8", Age: 20, Notable Works: Twilight Saga {Franchise}, X-Men Days of Future Past, White Frog]: Much like my Vegeta choice, he is a Twilight Alumni who has stood out in small ways. He was pretty good in Days of Future Past. I think with a bigger and more detailed scripted character he would absolutely rock. No doubt he has the right figure to play Trunks, he'd really get to be a strong actor in that role and would certainly be fun.

Future Gohan [Height: 5' 9", Age 20's]: Future Gohan is showcased as a twenty-three year old man and is depicted as the mentor of Future Trunks. After the death of his father due to a heart virus and the murder of the Z Fighters at the hands of Android 17 and Android 18 six months later, Gohan becomes Earth's last line of defense. Now a Super Saiyan, he spends the following thirteen years attempting to take down the androids, all the while training Future Trunks in the hope that he may one day be able to defeat them.

Nathanial Arcand [Height: 5' 11", Age: 42, Notable Works: Pathfinder, The Lone Ranger {WB T.V. Pilot}, Heartland]: I actually remembered him from a Long Ranger Pilot from a while ago, he's a great actor and has some real fun. He does fantastic actor and I think he would really work well in the role of Future Gohan. He's aged very well despite being 40's.

Dr. Brief [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is a short, stocky man. His hair is very similar to that of his daughter, but is grey/blue instead of green. He also has a large gray mustache. He dons a white lab coat with a blue undershirt, and black pants. He is almost always seen smoking a cigarette and wears large glasses. In the early Dragon Ball series, Dr. Brief was depicted as a little bit of a pervert when Bulma tried a capsule and dirty magazines were in the contents, with Bulma being very angered with her father for this, and Goku, not realizing what the magazines actually were, pitied the girls because he thought they were too poor to even afford clothes.

Bruce Campbell [Height: 6' 1", Age: 56, Notable Works: Burn Notice, Evil Dead {Franchise}, Jack of All Trade]: I love Bruce as an actor, he's a wonderful actor, certainly my favorite. I think this would be a fun role for him, he's certainly a smart fellow and this could be another great show of his talent as an actor.

Panchy Briefs [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Mrs. Brief has a thin frame and blonde hair. Her eyes are almost always closed yet she is still able to see everything clearly when they are. Mrs Brief also is seen to wear upscale clothing and jewellery. In her first appearance she wears a blue dress. Later on in the Namek Saga, she wears an orange shoulder-less shirt and tight blue jeans. Despite no mention of extraordinary life extension, Mrs. Brief appears to be all but untouched by time or age in all her appearances, dating from Bulma's late teens to modern-day Trunks' childhood. This also seems to hold somewhat true for her husband.

Julie Benz [Height: 5' 4", Age: 42, Notable Works: Dexter, Rambo, Defiance]: For this role, I had to have someone who is without a doubt a beautiful, bombshell of a woman. She does such fantastic role and this would certainly be a light and much more enjoyable and fun role for her to take compared to her darker works.

Kami [Height: 7' 4", Age: N/A]: Kami (神様, Kami-sama; lit. "God," "deity" or "divine being") is one of the beings that have served as a Guardian of the Earth. Throughout a majority of the story, the character known as Kami on Earth is a wise Namekian who no longer even remembers his real name. It was revealed, however, that his father's name was Katas. As a nameless Namekian, he hatched on planet Namek in Age 242 and, as a child, was launched by Katas into outer space in a Namekian spaceship which requires at least a basic knowledge of the Namekian language to pilot. Kami is also the Namekian that created King Piccolo and Earth's version of the Dragon Balls.

Michael Dorn [Height: 6' 4", Age: 61, Notable Works: Star Trek {Franchise}, Castle, Heroes]: He's an amazing actor. He's legendary as Commander Worf, he would be amazing in a role like Kami. It would be a role to play to his strengths as an actor and really stand out as an actor in this piece.

The Eternal Dragon Shenron [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Shenron is shown with the horns of a stag, sharp teeth, green scaly skin, red eyes, four toes on each foot, a long serpentine body (his tail takes up three-fourths of his length), long flowing whiskers, a long snout, crescent shaped nostrils, and flowing green hair on his cheeks. He is an Eastern dragon, whose kind are benevolent and sacred in Oriental mythologies. Unlike the Western dragons, which have large dorsal foldable wings on their backs, he has none. His kind are good at heart, but as a strong dragon, he has an aggressive temper, and is impatient sometimes.

Michael Dorn [Notable Works: Star Trek {Franchise}, Castle, Heroes]: Not only is the Eternal Dragon, in the U.S. Dub known as Shenron, a manifestation of it's creator but it's a separate character that I feel should be personified by the same actor as the actor playing Kami. It would be an amazing subtext to have Kami's performer Do the dialogue for the Eternal Dragon.

Mr. Popo [Height: N/A, Age: NA]: an assistant-deity who is apparently an immortal genie who tends the grounds of Kami's Lookout. He is bound there eternally as the gardener and caretaker, but he can travel anywhere in the world when the occasion calls for it, using a magic carpet for Instant Transportation.

Faran Tahir [Height: 5' 10", Age: 50, Notable Works: Supernatural {1 Episode}, Iron Man, Star Trek]: Faran is an actor I love to see perform. He does fantastic in his performances and for a role like Popo {who has been viewed as being from the middle east}. He would be such a wonderful choice For Popo. He would be a wonderful Mr. Popo playing him in such a breathtaking way.

King Kai [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: a supporting protagonist in the Dragon Ball manga and the animes Dragon Ball Z. He is a deity, the ruler of the North Galaxy, and Goku's final martial arts teacher, and later mentor. He also taught Yamcha, Tien Shinhan, Piccolo and Chiaotzu.

Patton Oswald [Height: 5' 7", Age: 45, Notable Works: Agents of Shield, Young Adult, Big Fan]: Patton is a famous comedian which is something King Kai attributed to being his own Dream. He certainly has the all around feel of him as a character. He would certainly be a wonderful choice to play the powerful King Kai.

Master Muten Roshi [Height: 5' 5", Age: N/A]: Master Roshi is an ancient and wise martial arts master, and the first character to wield the trademark Kamehameha. Though he seems frail, Roshi is actually a mighty warrior. He trained Grandpa Gohan, Ox-King, Goku, Krillin, and Yamcha. Master Roshi is both the archetypal wise old man and a perverted old man, the latter being typical of shōnen manga. Sometimes, he gets cranky, which further provides comic relief. His companions are usually Oolong, Turtle, and Launch. His home is Kame House, a shack on a small isolated island which serves as a gathering place for his friends.

George Takei [Height: 5' 8", Age: 77, Notable Works: Star Trek, Howard Stern Show {Frequent Guest Appearances}, Heroes]: If you've seen his more fun and "adult" interviews and appearances on the Howard Stern show this choice actually fits perfectly. He's a very rambunctious person and could certainly the more perverted side to Roshi as well as the all around wise-man version we've been attributed to. He certainly could be a wonderful and perfect choice for Master Roshi.

Fortuneteller Uranai Baba [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]:Baba is shown to be very rude towards people, even her own brother. Baba also likes to underestimate people who fight her five warriors, as she thought that Goku, Yamcha and Krillin stood no chance of beating any of them. She seems to have her limits on just how far she will let the fighters do to their opponents, urgently ordering Spike the Devil Man not to attack Goku with the Devilmite Beam, assuming everyone else it has killed, it would kill him too. Another example of her arrogance is evident when she informs to Grand Kai that she will take Goku to the living world without the Kai's previous consent, and even dared to say in his face that she did not need it to do such thing, much to the deity's displeasure (though he is forced to consent anyway cause, as noticed by Baba, he would have to train Goku himself if he refused).

Kim Miyori [Height: N/A, Age: 63, Notable Works: The Punisher, Metro, Loverboy]: I remember Kim from the 1989 Punisher film. She's such a wonderful actress who certainly sticks in the mind of viewers, I think this would be a wonderful role for her. She's a smart actress and a very fun one as well. She gives the roles she plays what they need, whether that be ham, deepness, or all around insanity, she would be perfect for Baba.

Oolong [Height: 4' 0", Age: N/A]: He is an anthropomorphic, shapeshifting pig who met Bulma and Goku while on their quest finding the Dragon Balls. After their adventure, he begins living at Capsule Corporation in West City. He plays a large role in the beginning of Dragon Ball, but by the end of Dragon Ball Z, he just shows up from time to time in the company of Master Roshi.

David Faustino [Height: 5' 3", Age: 40, Notable Works: Married... With Children, Robodoc, Avatar: The Legend of Korra]: I feel like this would be the perfect role for David, it's a similar role to Bud Bundy but it's got a serious amount of differences that would allow Faustino to bring himself out as an actor. He would certainly do a wonderful job.

Yajirobi [Height: 5' 5", Age: N/A]: He is a Human ronin (masterless samurai) who met Goku while the latter was searching for Tambourine. He spends most of his time with Korin on Korin Tower, and usually delivers Senzu Beans to the Z Fighters. Despite his obesity and desire to avoid fighting, he is quite strong and swift in his movement, also being highly skilled with his katana.

Ken Jeong [Height: 5' 5", Age: 44, Notable Works: The Hangover {Franchise}, Transformers Dark of the Moon, Despicable Me 2]: Yajirobe is an odd character, and he beckons an odd character actor, such as Ken Jeong. He would certainly be a refreshing choice for Yajirobe and have fun with it.

Korin [Height: N/A, Age: Over 800 Years]: He is a wise cat over 800 years old who lives atop a giant tower, and he is a martial arts master.

Tony Shalhoub [Height: 5' 10", Age: 60, Notable Works: Monk, Pain & Gain, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]: I love what I've heard from his work as Master Splinter {Which can be heard in the Brother's T.V. Spot}. He is a great actor and has a very strong and knowledgeable voice. He's certainly a great choice for all-wise Korin.

OX King [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is based on Niúmówáng ("Ox Demon King", "Ox Devil Lord" or "Ox Tyrant"), a character from the Chinese novel Journey to the West, on which the Dragon Ball series is based. In the novel, the character befriended the Monkey King (the equivalent of Goku). His wife was also the owner of the trademark Bansho Fan.

Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa [Height: 6' 0", Age: 63, Notable Work: Mortal Kombat, License to Kill, Tekken]: He's a strong actor who does such fantastic work. He's got a noble sense to him But he does have some Comedic works, such as Balls of Fury. He would be a strong actor for the Role fo Ox King and could certainly play a wonderful grandfather.

King Yema [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: King Yemma (閻魔大王, Enma Daiō) is the boss of all ogres who judge the dead. A line of souls leads to his office where he decides whether a soul goes to Heaven or Hell.

Kevin Michael Richardson [Height: 6' 0", Age: 49, Notable Works: American Dad, Transformers Prime, Bobby Cannon]: Kevin has done some genual acting, outside of V.A. Work. He's certainly looks similar to the character and has a very deep and notable voice to play such a role.

Dende [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Dende (デンデ) is a Namekian with a unique gift that allows him to heal others. He is the 108th son of Grand Elder Guru. Dende's first appearance is in Dragon Ball Z, when Gohan and Krillin rescued him from Dodoria. On Goku's request, Dende becomes the Earth's Guardian in Kami's place. He continues his role as Guardian for the rest of the series, helping the protagonists during their adventures whenever he can.

Tylen Jacob Williams [Height: N/A, Age: 12, Notable Works: Parks and Recreation, Wihtout a Trace, Instant Mom]: Tylen is a rising star and does a wonderful job, especially for a child actor. He's got a great gravity that would lend well to him as Dende.

Nail [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is a Namekian described as the 'lone' Warrior-type Namekian left when he first appeared in the manga. He is the personal bodyguard to Grand Elder Guru, and is incredibly strong for a Namekian. In fact, he was the most powerful Namekian alive at the time of Frieza's attack on Namek. He would later fuse with Piccolo, meaning he would continue to hold the title of the most powerful Namekian, as he was part of Piccolo's immense strength.

David Oyelowo [Height: 5' 10", Age: 38, Notable Works: Red Tails, Jack Reacher, The Butler]: David is a wonderful actor, he;s just starting to shine as an actor and has certainly deserved such recognition. He's talented and would be wonderful as Nail.

Grand Elder Guru [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: the oldest and wisest remaining Namekian in existence at the time of his appearance. As the creator of the Namekian Dragon Balls, Guru's death would cause them to become inert, unless he passes down his authority to someone else.

James Earl Jones [Height: 6' 2", Age: 82, Notable Works: Star Wars {Franchise}, The Lion King, The Hunt For Red October]: a bit of an obvious choice, but James Earl Jones is a legendary thespian of cinema. To consider others was logical but no one could match his talent as an actor.

The Eternal Dragon Porunga [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Porunga is the eternal dragon of Namek, summoned when all the Namekian Dragon Balls are gathered. Also, since a year on Namek is only 130 days (as opposed to a year more than twice as long as that on Earth), the Namekian Dragon Balls can be gathered more often than the ones on Earth, and thus, Porunga can be called on more often than the dragon of Earth Shenron can.

James Earl Jones [Notable Works: Star Wars {Franchise}, The Lion King, The Hunt For Red October]: His work as a voice actor is by far His most memorable and some of the most legendary voice work of all time. A fantastic actor it would be a beauitufl sight to hear him as the Eternal Dragon Porunga asking us to grant a wish.

Mark "Hercule" Satan [Height: 6' 2", Age: 40's]:When Mark was young, he attended a fighting dojo called "Satan Castle." Through a combination of considerable power and good luck (his rival fighting opponent would get food poisoning, for instance), he quickly became world champion and was called "Mr. Satan" after the name of his dojo. One day when they were on tour, at a bar in South City, Satan and his martial arts master made the mistake of making fun of Mercenary Tao's hairstyle. As a result, Mr. Satan was heavily injured while his master was killed. From then on, Mr. Satan solemnly swore never to fight anyone whose true identity he did not know, or anyone who seemed crazy strong.

Patrick Warburton [Height: 6' 3", Age: 49, Notable Works: Ted, The Emperor's New Groove, Rules of Engagement]: Another one of the greats, Patrick has done consistantly fantastic work playing characters of such high testosterone and comical aggression that for him a role like this must be second nature. I wanted an actor in this role, not a Wrestlers {and certainly not the go-too wrestler for this pick "Hulk Hogan"}. Patrick is certainly a standing professional and would absolutely without a doubt be fantastic as Hercule.

Bardock [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: A low-class Saiyan warrior, the mate of Gine, and the father of Raditz and Kakarot (Goku). He is shown to lead his own squad into battle, and they are very successful in accomplishing their assignments. He is an adept fighter and a devoted Saiyan Army soldier under Frieza's Planet Trade Organization, until he realizes that Frieza plans the annihilation of the Saiyan race. Given to him by the last Kanassan warrior was the ability to see into the future, and it is through these visions that he sees the eventual Genocide of the Saiyans.

Temeura Morrison [Height: 5' 7", Age: 54, Notable Works: Green Lantern, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, Once Were Warriors]: I really enjoy Temeura as an actor, and as soon as I discovered my take for Dragonball I knew he'd be my hocie for Bardock. He's a strong actor who's played noble guardian to outright bounty hunting pirate. While his Jango Fett character appeared in the lesser of the Star Wars Films but his character did hit a cord with fans and did get a bit of fame.

King Vegeta [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: The king of all Saiyans and the father of Vegeta and Tarble. He was also the commanding hero of the Saiyan Army, and led his people to victory in the Saiyan-Tuffle war, in which the planet was renamed in his honor. After his people were annexed by Frieza's Planet Trade Organization, he had no choice but to pledge allegiance, but kept power over his people.

Zahn McClarnon [Height: 5' 6", Age: 47, Notable Works: Into the West, Resolution, Longmire]: I've seen Zahn in things here and there, mostly in Longmire, he's given some very deep performances and has show he's a great actor. He's certainly got the talent to play the character and he has a look of nobility that would really play to the character.

Raditz [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is the biological brother of Goku (Kakarot), and the eldest son of Bardock and Gine. As with all other Saiyans in the series, Raditz's name is a pun on a vegetable, "radish" in this case. Raditz's family are all named after root vegetables (burdock, radish, and carrot).

Jason Momoa [Height: 6' 4", Age: 34, Notable Works: Games of Thrones, Conan the Barbarian, Stargate Atlantis]: Jason is a pretty damn good actor. I find myself to really enjoy his performances the more often I see them. He's absolutely the right type of actor to Play Raditz, He fits for my specific vision and has the appropriate look to play such a monstrous character.

Nappa [Height: 6' 10", Age: N/A]: He is an elite Saiyan warrior from Planet Vegeta, and Vegeta's partner in combat. Prior to the destruction of Planet Vegeta, Nappa was the General of the Saiyan Army under the Planet Trade Organization and aid/partner to the young Prince Vegeta as well. After his race's demise, he along with Vegeta and Raditz work as soldiers directly under Frieza, which leads him to Earth. His name is a pun on a type of Chinese cabbage.

Antonio Te Maioha [Height: 6' 4', Age: 44, Notable Works: Spartacus, War Party, Xena Warrior Princess]: Antonio is a great actor, He's got some real fun to him and he does great work. With his power house size and talent as an actor he could certainly take a role like Nappa and bring him to life.

Captain Ginyu [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: the leading member of an elite mercenary platoon, the eponymous Ginyu Force. His name is a pun on gyunyu, the Japanese word for milk.

Tahmoh Penikett [Height: 6' 2", Age: 39, Notable Works: Battlestar Galactica, Arrow, Riverworld]: An all-around powerful actor, who really commands his characters in a position of notability. When he's given worth material, he is very much worth the money he's paid. In a role Like Captain Ginyu you need an actor of his caliber to play it.

Dodoria [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is a high-ranking henchman of Frieza under the Planet Trade Organization. His name comes from the Japanese word for the durian fruit.

Dominic Monoghan [Height: 5' 7", Age: 37, Notable Works: X-Men Origins Wolverine, Lost, Lord of the Rings Fellowship of the Ring]: I like Dominic. He's a great actor and has a lot of fun with his work. He'd be an odd choice but this is a role in need of heavy make-up and other fx and Dominic is a commiting actor who'd sell this role well.

Jeice [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Jeice (ジース, Jīsu; lit. "Jheese") is an extremely flamboyant and showy white-haired mutant (as Captain Ginyu stated) member of the mercenary Ginyu Force squadron, who is an alien humanoid in appearance (apart from his red skin). Nicknamed the "Red Magma", he often pairs with Burter for combination attacks (an example being the Purple Comet Attack).

Manu Bennett [Height: 5' 11", Age: 44, Notable Works: Arrow, Spartacus, The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug]: This was actually an easy and pretty simple choice to amke. Manu is a fantastic actor, he does amazing work playing villains and has never really been in a role like Jeice. He does fantastic work and would certainly be a perfect Jeice.

Burter [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]:Burter (バータ) is the fastest member of the Ginyu Force. Nicknamed the "Blue Hurricane", he often performs combo attacks with Jeice, such as the Purple Comet Hurricane. Burter's Japanese name, Bāta, is off from the word Butter rearranged.

Michael Trucco [Height: 6' 3", Age: 43, Notable Works: Battlestar Galactica, Fairly Legal, Meteor Storm]: Michael is a very devoted and very charismatic actor. His work is far and above better than most other t.v. Actors and yet Michael hasn't been given a chance to really shine. I think a role like Burter, while not shining, would allow him to show off how good an actor he is.

Recoome [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Recoome (リクーム) is a large, muscular, humanoid alien with orange hair. He is the most flamboyant member of the Ginyu Force, seen striking poses more often in battle than Captain Ginyu himself, and generally behaving in a deceptively goofy manner.

Ryan Hurst [Height: 6' 4", Age: 37, Notable Works: Sons of Anarchy, The Ladykillers, We Were Soldiers]: Ryan's a big guy with a lot of power to him. He;s got the size to really show a powerhouse of villainy. To his credit he's a smart and talented as an actor.

Guldo [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is the smallest and least powerful member of the Ginyu Force, physically. Guldo possesses some psychic abilities, including being able to stop time for as long as he can hold his breath; this seems to be one of the primary reasons he has attained membership to the Ginyu Force. Guldo's literal Japanese name is Gurudo, which is derived from yōguruto (yogurt).

Andy Serkis [Height: 5' 8", Age: 50, Notable Works: Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Lord of the Rings {Franchise}, Burke and Hare]: Andy is one of two modern actors who literally can be called "The Man of 1000 Faces". He is such a fantastic and transformative actors that he would absolutely welcomed by any fan for almost any role in the DBZ Rogues Gallery.

Zarbon [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is an elegant warrior who serves as Frieza's highest ranking General and right-hand man under the Planet Trade Organization. His name comes from the Japanese word for the pomelo fruit (ザボン, or 朱欒).

Matthew Bomer [Height: 6' 0", Age: 36, Notable Works: White Collar, Magic Mike, In Time]: One of the key character traits about Zarbon is that he is a pretty boy. He attributes his normal form as being a beautiful site, and his more powerful form is something he uses to reinforce that idea. Matt is certainly an actor who's got the looks to play handsome Zarbon and I think with a chance to really play an absolute maniac he could nail the monstrous side of Zarbon and fade into the character.

Frieza [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Frieza is a galactic emperor who runs the planet trade and is feared for his ruthlessness and power.

Michael Pitt [Height: 5' 11", Age: 33, Notable Works: Hannibal, Boardwalk Empire, Last Days]: If you've seen his take on Mason Verger, it really says it all. Mason was born and rew up as a spoiled brat with a silver spoon and the power behind money at his becon call, he is a true monster, and Michael took that role and out performed Gary Oldman {Who portrayed Verger in Ridley Scott's Hannibal}. He has become that character. Michael has shown enormous talent and amazing abilities as an actor. He was simply my first and only choice to play Frieza, he would absolutely be perfect and nail the role without question.

King Cold [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: the father of both Frieza and Cooler, and the "secret" leader of the Planet Trade Organization. Like Frieza and Cooler, King Cold's name also refers to low temperatures.

Kelsey Grammer [Height: 6' 1", Age: 59, Notable Works: X-Men The Last Stand, Expendables 3, Fraiser]: Grammer is a true thespian. He does such fantastic work and works one some of the most intelligent films. Sure he's been doing guilty pleasure movies but hell as great an actor as he is, he brings class to them. This is certainly a role he would be amazing in.

Android 16 [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Android 16 was modeled on Gero's dead son, a high-ranking Red Ribbon soldier long ago felled by an enemy bullet. He bears many qualities unique to his android series. He is the only model of the three to be entirely synthetic, which, until the development of Android 17 and Android 18, was the norm for Gero's projects. This fact is unknown by Android 17, who was previously under the impression that "Dr. Gero did not have the technology to create an android from nothing," and wonders "why he went back to cybernetics" (when in actuality Android 17 and Android 18 are the first 'cybernetic-fitted human' androids to be seen in the Dragon Ball franchise). Having not been created from a human base might explain why Android 16 is the strongest of his series, as he has virtually no human attributes to hinder him (even Android 18 is quick to acknowledge that Android 16 is "fundamentally different" from her and Android 17). He is nice to both humans and other animals, and proves to be a valuable ally to the Z Fighters in their battle against Cell. He is also the tallest android of both his series and the production line as a whole, towering at over double the height of Android 18.

Joe Manganiello [Height: 6' 5", Age: 37, Notable Works: True Blood, Spider-Man, Magic Mike]: Joe is a big guy with a lot of strength and talent. He has done some pretty emotion-filled roles in the past as well as some pretty tough B.M.F.'s. This is a role that would take those two entities and really blend, allowing Joe to use his full onset range of emotion. He would certainly take the role in a more Serious Direction than an easy to pass Carbon copy of Arnold's Terminator 2 Performance. Joe would be dynamic as 16.

Lapus/Android 17 [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is Dr. Gero's seventeenth android creation, designed to serve Gero's vendetta against Goku who overthrew the Red Ribbon Army as a child. Despite his interests not initially deviating from this expectation, Android 17 takes it upon himself to kill Dr. Gero, who is uncooperative with Android 18's curiosity in activating Android 16.

Colin Morgan [Height: 6' 0", Age: 28, Notable Works: Merlin, Island, Parked]: A strong actor who's done some pretty dynamic work from the show Merlin. Although he played a hero, I'd love to see him as a pure villain. He'd be a strong antagonist and this would certainly flex his acting muscles.

Lazulli/Android 18 []: She is Dr. Gero's eighteenth android creation, designed to serve Gero's vendetta against Goku. While her interests do not initially deviate from this expectation, Android 18's curiosity to activate Android 16, in spite of Gero's orders not to do so, leads Android 17 to take it upon himself to murder Gero. Android 18 later becomes the wife of Krillin and the mother of their only daughter, Marron.

Amber Heard [Height: 5' 8", Age: 28, Notable Works: The Rum Diary, Never Back Down, Drive Angry]: Amber is Fiery vixen. A strong willed and insanely talented actress. She certainly ahs the spunk 18 had, and she would certainly capture the beautiful look of the character. There's no doubt she'd be a perfect 18 in looks and characterization.

Android 19 [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: Android 19 is the final android designed by Dr. Gero to be created exclusively from synthetic technology (although in some alternate timelines this respect goes to Android 16). The android was modeled after a doll decorating the command center of an enemy base, which Dr. Gero brought home as a trophy. When Dr. Gero decided to turn himself into Android 20 in order to become immortal, his brain was transplanted into his android body by Android 19.

John Bradley-West [Height 5' 8", Age: 25, Notable Works: Games of Thrones, Borgia, Merlin]: John is a dynamic actor, he's been growing in talent in Games of Thrones but his work on Merlin is extremely fun. He is certainly an actor that could pull of 19's look and perfectly capture the character.

Dr. Gero [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: After the Red Ribbon Army's downfall and collapse at the hands of Goku in Age 750, Gero retreats to his mountain laboratory to plot his revenge with his Artificial Humans series. Not until he reaches Android 19 does he create an obedient, bloodthirsty servant. Gero then has #19 transplant his brain into an android body, thus turning himself into Android 20 and preventing him from dying of old age. After his second defeat at the hands of the Z Fighters, Gero retreats to his lab to activate Android 17 and Android 18, who rebel, with Android 17 killing the doctor. Though Gero dies, he leaves behind Android 13, Android 14, Android 15, Android 16, and his ultimate creation Cell.

Lars Mikkelsen [Height: 6' 4", Age: 50, Notable Works: Sherlock, Those Who Kill, The Killing]: Lars is an actor I rarely see, and ever more rare, see cast. His Brother, Mads stars in NBC's Critically Acclaimed "Hannibal". Lars is an actor of fine talent. He ahs the overall right style fit for Dr. Gero. It would be a great role for him, as he overall seems the perfect choice for Dr. Gero.

Cell [Height: N/A, Age: N/A]: He is the ultimate creation of Dr. Gero, designed to possess all the abilities of the greatest fighters to have ever inhabited or visited Earth; the result is a "perfect warrior", possessing numerous favorable genetic traits and special abilities. Cell is one of the few Red Ribbon Androids not directly completed by Dr. Gero; the others are Android 15, Android 14, Android 13, and possibly Android 8. Cell, Android 13, Android 14, and Android 15's completions involve Dr. Gero's Super Computer.

Benedict Cumberbatch [Height: 6' 0", Age: 37, Notable Works: Sherlock, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hobbit Desolation of Smaug]: It's hard to imagine why this choice wouldn't work? It probably seems all too typical, but In all honesty I have no other choices, ideas, or thoughts on who would be the "Perfect Cell" {See what I did there?}. Ben is a serious actor, a commanding presence and an arcane sensibility of his talent allows him to be one of the best modern actors of all time. There's no doubt he could play this role well.
