In the eyes of fans, the role of Zorro was played by only one actor, and his name is McKenney. Completely inhabiting the role, to the point of performing almost all of the character’s stunts himself, the American-Japanese actor convinced the majority of One Piece fans that he was indeed the best choice to play the role.
But the role of Zoro was wanted by many fans of One Piece actors, starting with one of the stars of Cobra Kai. Thus, Netflix released a featurette that sees Jacob Bertrand (Hawk’s translator in the Karate Kid series) on the set of the adaptation of the cult manga.
In this case, Jacob Bertrand was able to test his own martial arts skills by participating in the choreography from the series and stepping into the skin of Roronoa Zoro for a few seconds. A convincing result, but one that fans will not regret due to McKenney’s flawless performance.
Although One Piece has been renewed for a second season, remember that the Cobra Kai series will end at the end of season six. However, filming for this final season has yet to begin due to the actors’ and writers’ strike that is currently paralyzing Hollywood.
One Piece and Cobra Kai series can be seen exclusively on Netflix.
