Just Because You Know Him, Doesn’t Mean Japan Does

Kotaku: Actor Tadanobu Asano was at this year's Tokyo Game Show. He's lending his voice to the game Shadows of the Damned—a game he told me to go buy. Joining him is actress Chiaki Kuriyama of Kill Bill fame. Asano and Kuriyama are famous in Japan, sure, but not so famous that everybody knows their names like Shinsuke Shimada or Smap.

The story is too old to be commented.

Looks a bit like Keanu Reeves! Or are my eyes on their way out?

Pozzle2349d ago

Yep, I can kind of see it. He sort of looks like a mix between Keanu Reeves and Joseph Gordon Levitt...except more Asian. :O

I was about to add Joseph Gordon-Levitt as another familiar face.

Yeah, I think I might have seen him in something. Can't remember what though.

The article make it sounds as if he's even that famous in the west to begin with.

Sure we've seen him in Thor or a few other films , and is getting increasing more and more jobs , but how many of us even know his name or realized it was him ?

He still got more than enough time and talent to get there thought

Ichi the Killer was totally Fucked! But i loved every minute of it, Not quite as good as Old Boy but on nearly equal ground! :D

Asano is an awesome presence in every Japanese film I've seen him in. It's cool to see him lending his talent to video games.
