Michael Jai White as Garterbelt by MZimmer1985 Michael Jai White as Garterbelt by MZimmer1985
Garterbelt [Height: N/A; Age: N/A]: The reverend of Daten City. He is the Anarchy sisters' guardian. Garterbelt is a large black man with a massive afro. He relays missions from Heaven to Panty and Stocking, and is constantly annoyed by their erratic behavior and lack of commitment to tasks at hand. Though vocal about keeping order in Daten City, he practices bondage and displays interest in young males, particularly Brief, and uses a masked alias called "Master G" to disguise himself while undertaking such hobbies. In his youth, he was a brutal thug who committed a wide array of crimes including robbery, prostitution, selling drugs and murder. When he is gunned down and sent to Heaven, God tasks him with finding the blood kin of Hellsmonkey, who possesses the key to unlocking Hell's Gate. Because of his initial refusal of the task, he is cursed with immortality and forbidden from dying until he fulfills his given task. Despite his efforts to guide and care for Panty and Stocking, they take very little interest in him or his job, and do not even appear moved at all when he is seemingly killed by his archenemy Corset.

Michael Jai White [Height: 6'; Age: 46; Notable Works: Spawn, Justice League Heroes, Black Dynamite]: Who better to play off my choices for Panty and Stocking - and I hope you saw them - than geek icon/martial artist maestro Michael Jai White? Some fans clamor for Samuel L. Jackson, but it feels cliched, and I wanted to go for an unexpected choice. White's work in the cult classic Black Dynamite was probably one of many examples why I went down this route. His knack for going larger than life, and repertoire in martial arts (black belts in 7 styles of martial arts) would not only make him a strong choice for the role, but give the character a unique spin.

Now I hope you know this is a casting choice deviant, not something I made on my own.

I still hope you like the casting deviation regardless.

Actually your right Michael Jai White is a way better choice than Samuel Jackson. He has the skills to play this part far better than anyone else.

Nah, I wanted someone a little younger and out-of-the-box. I'd watch Black Dynamite if you're a non-believer of Michael Jai White.
