We're not sure why they went with a white actor, but we do kind of see the resemblance.
Nat Wolff is one of the most popular actors in Young Hollywood and it looks like he's about to get his first role as a leading man!
That's because the 20-year-old Paper Towns actor was just cast as the main character in the American live-action remake of the popular anime and manga Death Note!

There's already a series of films based on the brand in Japan, but Nat's version will most likely appeal to a younger demographic who are more used to comic books than they are manga.
The plot of the anime is pretty violent with the Death Note giving murderous powers to its owner, so it'll be interesting to see Nat take on a darker role.
Which other young actors do U want to see star in the highly anticipated film??
