What Is The Role And Why Is Jamie Lee Curtis Perfect For It

During a red carpet interview at the 94th Academy Awards, she was asked if given the chance, which One Piece character would she like to play, to which Curtis replied that she would love to play Nico Robin, but is probably too old for the role and instead how she would be interested in playing Dr. Kureha, who is a 140-year-old doctor and a mentor and mother to Tony Tony Chopper, the cute little doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates.

However, even when the already existing live-action cast and many fans want Curtis to play Dr. Kureha, it is still uncertain if Netflix has any plans to cast her to do the same. It is still exciting to see her interest in the role which is certainly encouraging and promising enough for the fans.
