Yet he is the anti-thesis of otaku/wapanese culture.

Which wouldn't suit the primary target audience, although it would help the film achieve mainstream success.

Despite what some people think Zac Efron is pretty talented as an actor. I think he can pull it off. Plus he kinda looks like Light. I'm not complaining.

I listened to a radio interview when HSM2 came out that Zac Efron is a HUGE fan of anime and manga.
If he can get the maniacal side of him out, I can really see him being Light Yagami...intelligent and attractive. His angry side that comes to mind however is when he would begin yelling in HSM2....I hope he just works on that, because it needs to feel authentic. Assuming this is true, of course. Regardless of what people think, he CAN be quiet and mysterious, and not just goofy and happy.

Good luck to him.

Even though I hate Zac Efron, he really does look like he can do a good job playing as Light. [Come on, he looks like him!]

I don't know if appearance dictates how well one portrays a character.

Nobody likes him because of HSM. I bet that's why he's doing this.

NO. No no no no no.
I hate Zec Efron. He cannot play Light Yagami, have you actually seen him on those movies. He's too fake.

He's obviously doing it for the money :\ on top of the similarities between himself and Light (It's mostly the hair), so he was pretty much assured for the role.

not known yet. i reckon johnny depp would be a good candidate though xD ..though i guess he'd be too old now? =(
I'm not sure if any of you have actually seen Zac's works, but he is pretty good at being both quiet, angry, cool, collected, a HUGE LIAR, and suspicious.
but he's too happy and smiley *shudders*

Y'think? Johnny Depp playing L is as bad as Light being played by Efron.

Also...how can you take that first source seriously?
It said Madonna was going to play Mello.

Make up does wonders, just look back to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and you'll see what I'm talking about.

I don't really care, my problem is with HSM, not him. If he can pull it off, then I cool with him doing it.
