Urgh.... I have not watched HSM, and I tend to try avoiding it. only because im not a high school film lover or liker. the only thing close to films set in high schools taht i would watch would be Mean girls. maybe i should extend my horizon, but im not a fan of cheesyness.
that aside, If anyone should be in the role for Raito, it should be Jim sturgess who played Ben in 21. Because i know he would be able to pull the role off well, acting wise, as well as the fact that even his looks in 21 resemble Raito and has a similar role of the highly inteligent good looking and popular highschool-getting-into-uni role. http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3126957568/nm0836343
