    lolo son goku from dbz is the best^^ however dicky cheung is great, too. he is funny, kinda athletic in terms of acting monkey-ish and of course a fantastic actor.
    Beautiful and deadly, she is a true descendant of dragon. Fighting for the forces of right and justice, she leaves a series of broken bodies and broken hearts wherever she goes.

    I think Liu Xiao Ling Tong is probably the best monkey king. =)

    Nobody can beat 1986's Monkey King portrayal. Next closest one is this, followed closely by Jet Li's (The Forbidden Kingdom):

    It also helps that he is part of SMAP boy band:

    Jet Li's portrayal of The Monkey King:



    Jet Li is good at portraying a mischievous Monkey King, but I rate Shingo Katori's performance higher b/c his Monkey King version sometimes gets cranky/peeved off in a comic way.

    Future version I'm interested in seeing:



    Chinyūki spoofs adventure manga by retelling Journey to the West, the Chinese literary classic. In the story, a violent, trouble-making kabuki actor joins a traveling monk (who happens to be have been transformed into a monkey by a curse) on a colorful journey west to ancient southern Asia.

    There was the Korean one too that involved inter-dimensional space-time travel. I wouldn't nominate it for an acting award though, it was more about the SFX, and the Monkey King looked like a cross between Michael Jackson and a monk/priest:
