Marsters speaks to TV Guide about ‘Dragonball’
In the January 21-28, 2008 issue of TV Guide actor James Marsters (Spike, Buffy/Angel, Brainiac, Smallvile) spoke about his involvement in ‘Dragonball’, a live action adaptation of the Weekly Shonen JUMP title by Akira Toriyama (directed and written by James Wong):
“Oh, Dragonball is the coolest television cartoon in the last 50, 000 years. It’s got a Shakespearean sense of good and evil. The movie has incredible action scenes with characters with unbelieveable powers. It’s going to be really visually exciting.”
When his stint on Without a Trace came up Marsters spoke of how the producers were “…miffed that I wasn’t available anymore [due to Dragonball], which was both a surprise and kind of a compliment.”
Dragonball also stars Justin Chatwin, Chow Yun-Fat, Emmy Rossum, Joon Park, Jaime Chung, and Eriko Tamura while being produced by Stephen Chow.
