The actor's visage seems destined to become more recognizable still when Netflix premieres director Adam Wingard's horror-thriller Death Note on August 25, even if we don't see too much of Stanfield's face in a just-released poster showing his character, the mysterious detective, "L". With an Americanized setting and cast of actors, many longtime Death Note fans are accusing the film of being yet another case of Hollywood whitewashing a beloved anime/manga property, especially following the poor reception earlier this year to the Scarlett Johansson-led Ghost in the Shell adaptation.
Here's a synopsis: Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. The purported killer is known as 'L, ' a prodigy detective behind the investigation of the serial killer known as 'Kira'.

As awful as it sounds, when they throw large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them.
Portrayed by Atlanta breakout Lakeith Stanfield, this version of L hides his identity beneath a hood and bandana, a significant departure from the enigmatic crime-solver fans grew to love in the manga and anime.
