Best Japanese Actors


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Takahiro Sakurai
22 Abe 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.

23 Chiaki 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.

24 Hiroyuki Sanada
25 Nakayama Yuma
26 Takashi 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!

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

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

31 Minoru Chiaki Minoru Chiaki Minoru 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.

32 Kento Yamazachi
33 Yamada Takayuki
34 Hiro Mizushima
35 Masaharu Fukuyama
