Mortal Kombat games are full of bizarre and scary fighters, but the one thing that some of them have is a sense of humor. The fighter named Kano is one of the few characters in the series who often jokes about strange worlds mortal Kombat. This sense of humor has always made fans love Kano, even though the character is always presented as the villain.
Josh Lawson will portray Kano in the upcoming live-action Mortal Kombat film. In an interview with ComicBook.com, the actor revealed how Kano’s funny bone and lack of morality make him such a fun character to play.
“I think a lot of people would say that playing the bad guy is fun. Right? Why is it? Why is it fun to be a villain? I think it’s allowed in civilized society to say and do things that We can’t. Kano isn’t in that filter. He’s self-serving, he’s greedy, he’s opportunistic, and there’s something fun about doing it. Yes, we never do it in life, nor we should do. “
Kano has been a part of mortal Kombat The game since the first installment in the series was released. The character is an Australian mercenary and a member of the international crime cartel known as Black Dragon, in whose capacity he is a frequent run-in with Sonya Blade and Jacques Briggs.
Unlike the other warriors on Earth, who are always fighting to save the planet, Kano is largely interested in his selfish motives and appeases his loyalty to whoever is willing to pay the most. According to Lawson, ringing Kano can tap into the selfish side of humanity that you would normally have to shut down.
“I think we all have that ability. We all have the potential to be terrible and hopefully we succumb for the most part. Being a villain, you don’t have, and the boundaries in that direction. Is fun to pursue. Yes, to answer your question, it’s great fun. “
While Kano is a villain, he is not the main Big Bad mortal Kombat. It will be interesting to see what new Lawson brings to the character and whether the fatalities used by Kano in the film will be a step-up from the low-pitched moves set in the game.
