news culture One Piece on Netflix: A cult Hollywood actress tempted by the cast of the Live Action series
Little by little, the Netflix series which adapts One Piece in live action is revealed. Boats, number of episodes… It is also the casting which is revealed bit by bit with the recent announcement of the actor who will play Shanks. But other actors could also see themselves in the next seasons if there is a next season.

At the Oscars, Jamie Lee Curtis delivers on One Piece
At the start of the week, the One Piece News Coo Online delivered several announcements around the franchise One Piece. A new poster for the film around Shanks has been unveiled as well as the logo for the 25th anniversary of the saga, but also a brand new video game titled One Piece Odyssey. Finally, it is the live action series produced by Netflix which introduced a new cast member: this is Peter Gadiot, who will play Shanks in the adaptation. And if there are still many characters who have not yet been loaned actors (we think of Colonel Morgan, Mihawk or even the chef of Baratie), others are already causing envy among some actors.
This is particularly the case of actress Jamie Lee Curtis (freaky friday, among others). Present at the Oscars ceremony, she is interviewed by a Tiktoker named Straw_Hat_Goofy known on the social network for his videos on One Piece. Then follows a lunar exchange between the two participants, visibly familiar with the universe created by Eiichiro Oda, during which Jamie Lee Curtis talks about his acting desires:
My favorite character is Chopper. I would really like to play Nico Robin, but obviously that’s not possible since I’m a bit too old.
A compromised wish
Even so, she suggests another character in the aftermath who she describes as “a wrinkled old shrew she might play” especially since it was his daughter who told him. If there are many old crone characters in One Piece, it seems to be Dr. Kureha to whom Jamie Lee Curtis refers. A choice all the more relevant that she represents the mother figure of Chopper, and that she shares the same charisma as the actress.And even if Netflix, the producer of the adaptation, would strike a deal with Jamie Lee Curtis to play Nico Robin or Kureha, seeing the actress on the screen of the series would take some time and requires a major condition: that several seasons be broadcast.
Currently in production, the Netflix-run One Piece series only has one season confirmed. This would cover the narrative arcs related to East Blue, either the first eleven or twelve volumes of the saga. However, Nico Robin makes his first appearance in volume 13 of the manga and becomes a recurring character much later. Concerning Dr. Kureha, it is after volume 13 with the narrative arc of The Road of All Perils, in volume 15. Of course, several seasons of One Piece are not guaranteed. Recently, it’s the live-action adaptation of cowboy bebop which is the proof: after a first season, Netflix simply canceled the series. Nothing committed therefore, especially since a release date for the One Piece live action series has still not been communicated.
