Akira Takarada to Appear in "Godzilla" Remake

Actor played heroic salvage ship captain Hideto Ogata in 1954's original "Gojira"

In a welcome nod to the franchise's heritage, Akira Takarada, who played heroic salvage ship captain Hideto Ogata in 1954's original Gojira, was on the set of upcoming Hollywood Godzilla remake's Vancouver shoot for what seems likely to be at least a cameo appearance.
