Football player Atsuto Uchida is part of the latest Pokemon movie “Pokemon the Movie XY: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction”. Cocoon of destruction just sounds like the cutest chaos in the world. SQQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Not only will he be voicing a character, the character in the movie apparently looks like him and even has his nickname “Usshii”. The nickname comes from the team he plays with in Germany, although he is part of Japan’s team for the World Cup in Brazil. In the Pokemon movie, Usshii's character won’t be a soccer star though, he’ll be a bellboy! LOL

Which famous person would you like to see as an anime character? And what would THEY do?

My pick - Baby Metal and they would be a group of super villainesses that pilot GIAGANTIC MECHS MADE OF CHOCOLATE!

Here's Atsuto Uchida's skills in a video someone has put together to Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA" haha
