Australian artist BossLogic has been impressing all the right people with his Mortal Kombat portraits inspired by Hollywood actors. Several pieces shared to the artist's Twitter have caught the eye of Ed Boon, whose social media reach put a much circulated rendering of Jax in front of a particularly receptive Terry Crews!

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Expendables star made no secret of his interest in playing Major Jackson Briggs, complimenting the artist,and adding an affirmative, "I WOULD LOVE TO DO THIS!!!" It sparked an exchange with Ed Boon, who responded "Would be awesome if we could make this a real thing!" Crews added another enthusiastic: "Man I'm RIGHT HERE".

Jax isn't the only famous face BossLogic has cast. A series of follow-up portraits have been shared consistently to Twitter and Instagram, depicting: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Shao Kahn, Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) as Raiden, Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) as Kitana and Mileena, Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Johnny Cage, Keanu Reeves (John Wick) as Kenshi, Travis Fimmel (Vikings) as Kano, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek) as Jade, Douglas Jones (Hellboy) as Reptile, and most recently, Vin Diesel as Baraka!

Update: The hits keep coming! Additionla updates since the original time of writing include: Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) as Smoke, John Cena (12 Rounds) as Stryker, Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) as Kabal, Lewis Tan (Deadpool 2) as Sub-Zero, Daniel Wu (Into The Badlands) as Liu Kang, Donnie Yen (Ip Man) as Kung Lao, and Brian Tee (TMNT: Out of hte Shadoes) as Scorpion.

Last month, producer James Wan addressed the absence of news from a Mortal Kombat movie reboot, having previously stifled false reports about the script. It was reported in 2016 that fellow Australian Simon McQuoid would join as Director.
