Suzuki Ryohei should portray Kazuma Kiryu in a Yakuza live action film

Kazuma Kiryu is the main protagonist of the Yakuza / Ryu ga Gotoku video game series. Although there has already been a Yakuza live action movie made, I wish a new live action movie would be made starring Suzuki Ryohei. He possesses all the essential characteristics such as a commanding voice and chiseled physique to portray Kiryu. In fact, after watching him in My Love Story! I feel like the main character he plays, Gouda Takeo, could very well be a teenage version of Kiryu in some wacky alternate universe. Takeo does good deeds like helping out strangers just like Kiryu in side missions. Both look intimidating with their deep voices and mean looking faces that scare the people they help. They both have a strong set of morals. They both have a bromance (at least in Yakuza 0). Suzuki totally embodies each character he plays with tons of charisma and would make for a great Kiryu. Other films that show Suzuki’s impressive physique, athleticism, comedy chops and fighting prowess are Hentai Kamen and Tokyo Tribe.

Also I hope to see Kiryu as a fighter in Virtua Fighter 6 (if Sega ever bothers to make it).

Bonus: Suzuki reading English. Dude is multi-talented.
