Is it possible for anyone but Kuroda to portray Kiryu with the necessary gravitas?

Is it possible for anyone but Kuroda to portray Kiryu with the necessary gravitas? I know he couldn't play him live action given that they seem to be doing the Yakuza 1 story, but I feel like we're gunna get another situation similar to Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief. The voice is just too iconic.

    Can't he just dub it, or would that hurt the screen actor's feelings?

    Who asked for this? Did Amazon just see the popularity and think they would capitalize on the series? Do they not know that it’s mostly just memes and a majority of the frickers who post them know Kiryu as the “Dame da ne” guy?

    This title is straight up ass. I don’t care that the Japs are afraid to call it Yakuza, it’s a cooler name.

    I honestly have less faith for this because I feel like telling Yakuza 1's story completely straight as a TV show won't really work and I also feel like they won't capture the atmosphere Yakuza 1 aims for since they are basing it on Kiwami. The approach Yakuza 1 took is pretty much gone from the series, 4 is the only other game that really comes close to what Yakuza 1 was aiming for(and that's mainly because 4 pulls a lot from 1 intentionally, one of the characters literally only exists because of Yakuza 1's ending). The thing about Yakuza 1 is that it's more meant to serve as a snapshot of a period of time and the underworld that exists in it, the tone is much more grimy and dark compared to other ones, why half the story is more you running into different guys and dealing with their shitty lives like fixing Date and his failure of a daughter's relationship, Kiryu is easily at his most rude in it and it's why they don't really put THAT much focus on Nishiki's backstory or anything like Kiwami goes back and does(since it's less important despite serving as the overarching plot that connects these stories). I feel like they can't REALLY capture that in live action since they're probably going to make it closer in tone to the later games in the series and probably lean more into the humor too.

        It's more speculation and lack of faith in an adaptation. They've also said it's based on Kiwami's plot in the description of it.
