Street Fighter Movie cast revealed, no Jean-Claude in sight

Like the new Hulk movie, the new Street Fighter movie is attempting to revitalize a pop culture franchise tainted in the movie industry by a less-than-stellar debut. I really doubt a movie based on a fighter can rise that much above the rest, but if it’s even nearly as awesome as Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, I’ll be satisfied. Check out the lineup:

Kristin Kreuk plays Chun Li. She looks a little more Eskimo than Chinese, but she’s hot so nobody will complain.

Michael Clarke Duncan plays Mike Bison— I mean Mike Tys— I mean Balrog.

Neal McDonough plays M. Bison (née Vega if you’re in the know)

Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, if that is his real name, plays Vega. (?)

Chris Klein plays Charlie Nash, who looks pretty weak.

We’ll see if these pretty-boys and pretty-girl can live up to the legend of the original.
