What acting role would you like to see GACKT play?

Over the years, GACKT has starred in many movies, plays and TV series, as well as voice acting for anime. With a little mentoring from Ken Ogata, he’s clearly improved since the early days, and it seems like acting will be a significant part of his career from now on. So…

    I haven’t thought about this a lot, but anything that involves historical costume is A+ EXCELLENT. I would be interested to see him take on a historical role in a Western-made film, as a Japanese warrior or soldier sometime between the late 1800’s and WWII.*

    *(Think something like “The Last Samurai”, but without the white savior BS.)

  • Molly

    Not something I’ve really thought about, but I think I’d like to see him in a fantasy movie or more historical films.

  • lazycat66

    Whatever role he’d be interested in playing, I’d be interested in seeing. Basically, If he’s in it, I’ll watch it. And if I really like it, I’ll watch it again and again and again…

  • Allyson MacPherson

    I’d like to see him in a dramedy series. It would be interesting to see him play a role in which he can use a wide range of emotions.

  • It may sound a bit strange, but I wish I could GACKT playing a comic role…something rather funny…just for a change apart from his previous roles. 😀

  • Marina Kovalova

    Really don`t care as long as his acting character is complex and unusual)))

  • 7iThor

    I’d like to see him do a show that discusses historical events. He would trace these events to the geographical locations and talk to the locals and narrate the history of what happened and the effect it had on the region. If they used flashback acting scenes of what happened he would play the main character. This would allow him to teach about history and play a diverse number of roles at the same time.

  • Miyu

    I think i would like him to play another psycho character or some kind of a vampire prince in the 21st century.

  • elizabethg

    Want to see him play a demon king or vampire villain! O_O

  • Ka-chan | カッちゃん

    Rather than a particular role, I would like to see you play in a movie that challanges you to act naturally. A romance story of a normal Japanese man falling in love and coming to understand the joy of life.

  • Angela Headley

    You know what would be really cool? To see a movie version of one of his concept albums, with him as the lead.

  • Ursu Ana Maria

    Hmmm….I think I would like to see him playing a role that he is afraid of playing it. Something that would challenge him too much.

  • amanita ika

    I’d like to see him play an action movie that uses cars and involves a very fast driving skill,like Fast and Furious.he likes cars and driving very much,so I want to see him ride the best car,with his best driving skill,in the best action movie

  • I’d like to seem him take another stab at playing a role in a movie he had a hand in writing again, like Moon Child. And preferably, it would be MOON SAGA-related. 🙂 I know he’s done the plays, but I think it would be fun to see something as a movie instead next.

  • Eli

    It would be fun to see GACKT in an action comedy. Like a buddy cop flick or something. ^o^

  • I am into Tim Burton’s movies so I would really, really want to see him in one of those as a leading actor some time.
    And a historical Japanese warrior role in a Western-made film would also be amazing…

  • I would like to see him play someone urban and gritty, with a sense of humor. A bit of a thug, if you will. Perhaps a gangster, or a mafia hitman. In the style of The Last Don or The Godfather.

  • Some kind of cyborg. He could picture such character well in the RRII. I guess, he can do it also well in the movie.

  • Oni Weiss

    I like as he played Takegami)) want see more)

  • Sofia3081

    I want him to play the roly of the Phantom at the musical The phantom of the opera.

  • Rei leonard

    villain! specially a murderer …a smart one!

  • Trin Achronism

    too late. he’s already done it. ^_~ (Bunraku)

    I’d love it if he were to write some more, though! he makes good movie scripts.

  • Cibo Kirri

    I really want to see him as sadistic crazy murderer but he already did and im in love with him even deeper :3, but that scenes too short >…<
    And i want to see him as a vampire, prince, and king, and leader of some shady cooperation XD

  • Leana

    A character in a Blade Runner style setting, preferably a recovering child soldier type.
