First Look at Jon Foo as Jin Kazama in Tekken Movie

With that Chun Li chick and those crazy kids and their juggling dragonballs hogging all the game-to-movie spotlight, it’s easy to forget that they’re also making a live-action movie based on the popular Tekken fighting game. Okay, “forget” is not the right word, pretty much “hoping it doesn’t look nearly as bad as the other two movies” would probably be more in line with what gaming fans are thinking right now.

But just in case you still have hope for this movie, here’s your first look at British actor Jon Foo in character as Jin Kazama from the movie via his official site. And don’t worry, kids. Jon Foo isn’t some fancy schmancy actor they plucked out of TV land to star in this sure-to-be (hopefully) hard-hitting movie. After the pics, check out Foo’s video resume.

(Thanks to reader Tekken King for the heads up.)

    Finally! Finally! Finally! Finally! Just when I thought all hope was lost… what with Goku being played by a non asian and a Street Fighter movie that centers around Chun Li that looks like a Student film…Finally they found a guy that can actually play the part that the role demands. I remember this guy from Tony Jaa’s third film. So as soon as I heard they were going to do a movie about Tekken, I thought of this guy. Now let’s hope “King of Fighters” Recruit some good talent.

    so your saying Justin Chatwin can’t play Goku?

    remember Heath Ledger… everyone said he was only good for drama and comedy… then came the 2nd top grossing film of all time.

    Joon Foo can fight alright… he doesnt act good though, and as i recall, movies were about acting.

    and i dont see anyone complaining he DONT LOOK LIKE JIN KAZAMA since Kazuya has an aquiline nose which the WHITES have
