more dragonball casting news

Some more casting news regarding the upcoming live-action Hollywood adaptation of Dragonball, because I've discovered that a lot of you out there are crazy Dragonball fans... The latest news to surface in the trades is that Japanese actress Eriko Tamura, recently seen as Hiro's love interest on Heroes, has signed on to play the character "Mai." It's also being reported that Korean pop singer Joon Park (aka Park Jun Hyung), recently spotted in the Speed Racer trailer, has signed on to play bad boy "Yamcha." Not being very familiar with the series myself, I have no idea if these are appropriate casting choices. I only know that this is shaping up to be a crazy-looking movie. It's set for release next summer.
