Excuse me as I’m totally biased.
Where’s Yu Aoi? xD
CNN Go [new brand?] has an article about 7 not-so-known Japanese actors outside of Japan. Obviously there’s the mention of everyone’s favorites like Ken Watanabe [who is like the go-to Japanese guy in Hollywood now], Rinko Kikuchi, Tadanobu Asano, Rie Miyazawa, and Koji Yakusho.
Of course, don’t forget Hiroyuki Sanada ;P
Some not so surprising choices, some… or I mean, I got surprised by one xD
The best choice? A mention for Ryo Kase…
and a cool mention of Sakura Ando. =D
Also… why 7? 7 is a weird number for a TopList. It’s like the writer couldn’t come up with 10 names, so he did 7. So… I wonder what 10 Japanese Actors not so known outside of Japan… or I mean, outside Asia would you choose?
I’ll comment on this later…
