Someone who has a contract clause involving his character dying before the opening credits. Preferably.

Well his character is Japanese/White.......so probably a good Brazilian actor could pull him off, maybe Rodrigo Santoro or someone  but i doubt daken would be in a film anytime soon

Mark Dacascos is the best choice in my opinion. Especially if we had a time machine. He is a bit older now (but thats okay, given Daken is like over 60. He is okay with having a large tattoo placed on his shoulder arm, knows how to fight, has mixed look which could pass as American/Canadian Japanese, and I believe he is currently going with a bald look. Easy to throw on a Mohawk lol

How about Dan Hardy from the UFC? Of course he probably can't act but he already has the mohawk!

I think Luke Evans would make a great Daken. He's dark, he has the basic looks, and great acting skills.

@jonny_anonymous: Nah, I don't think he's meant to. Yes, Itsu was Japanese, but Logan's DNA is much stronger, so his characteristics have a much greater possibility to pass on. Not all of them of course.
