For a realistic Goku then the hair wouldn't be high and spiky unless glued as such, then again, when he'd crash it'd stay normal anyway.

My picks are the following:

Jon Foo
Tony Jaa
Ian Anthony Dale

I think that the best depiction of Son Goku is a oriental/Japanese man having done east-Asian blepharoplasty. :lol:

A young Jackie Chan, his on screen personality is a perfect match for Goku.

Jackie Chan was an ispiration for Goku's first adventures i think... But in terms of appearence i don't know if he would be a model.

I wouldn't really call it realistic but the style, design and outfit are gorgeous. This direction could be great for a DB video game, reminds me of Batman Arkham style.

Well, there is this bit where Toriyama says his ideal live action Goku would be a young Jackie.

This is something I also thought about a little bit at the time of that Hollywood live-action version, which came out incredibly amazing, but in the end, nobody came to mind. If it were back when Jackie Chan was still young, I suppose I would have thought nobody could play Goku but him.

That's awesome, I didn't even know about that interview. I just always thought "on screen" Jackie and Goku had very similar personalities.

Always nice to see Steve/Jimmy/Jack and Fiona together. :) And also, for anyone interested he's joined Orphan Black during Season 3. :D

I heard certain Samoans warriors would actually make pretty good Saiyans.
Check out Journey's End, a short story of Goku and Vegeta's final days. "Time is running out for the last two Saiyans"

Most "realistic" depictions of Goku I've seen make him look all angsty, brooding, or angry. I'd like to see a realistic-looking version of him smiling or laughing.
