Best Japanese Actors


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Abe Hiroshi

Abe Hiroshi can make me laugh and yet feel serious at the same time. He is immensely tall-- which the directors like to play with in his shows-- and manages to smile in that sort of attractive yet distant manner that makes his roles feel lifelike.

22Chiaki Kuriyama

I love her as Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill. She was born for that part. She can play a hero or a villain. I can't think of anyone better to play the sadistic, blood-thirsty Gogo Yubari.

23Takahiro Sakurai
24Nakayama Yuma
25Takashi Sorimachi

He's the best in Great Teacher Onizuka as Onizuka. He's the Japanese actor who made my feelings rush in every way; smile, laugh, cry and most importantly, have fun. That's why I think he deserves a place in this list!

26Takumi Saito
27Yuya Matsushita
28Erika Sawajiri
29Daisuke Kato

His chubby, likable face makes him suitable for any role.

30Minoru ChiakiMinoru Chiaki was a Japanese actor who appeared in such films as Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon, Seven Samurai and The Hidden Fortress.

Another Kurosawa regular, one with a friendly, affable, gentle face that's still great for any role.
