Jamie Lee Curtis has responded to growing calls for her to play Dr. Kureha on Netflix’s One Piece, and manga fans everywhere will be happy to know that she’s down to be on the show.

Curtis took to Instagram on Friday to let fans know that she is totally open to playing the character and the even better news is that the showrunner seems to want to make that happen.

“ONCE the STRIKE against the greed of the AMTPT is SETTLED with a FAIR CONTRACT, I will lobby along with the growing fan frenzy to become Doctor Kureha in @onepiecenetflix,” Curtis captioned her post.

The series’ co-showrunner Matt Owens then proceeded to comment on the post, writing “Mommy dearest, that’s why we sent you that figure! No need to lobby. Once we get what we deserve and get back to work let’s talk!”

Based on Eiichiro Oda’s manga series of the same name, One Piece centers on a boy named Monkey D. Luffy and his fellow Straw Hat Pirates as they carry out their quest for the titular treasure.

Curtis later posted a clip with footage of herself in an media interview to promote 2022’s Halloween Ends, where she mentioned that her daughter Ruby Guest has encouraged her to play Dr. Kureha, a gray-haired doctor on Drum Island.

One Piece premiered on Netflix last month and was renewed for Season 2 just two weeks later. Speaking about the renewal, Oda seemed to hint at the casting process for Dr. Kureha: “From here on, it seems to me the Straw Hats will need a great doctor… We will see!”
