Actress Rinko Kikuchi was nominated for an academy award for best supporting actress for her role in the film Babel, and will star in the 2009 film "The Brothers Bloom." Gackt Camui who plays (Uesugi Kenshin in the NHK drama Fūrinkazan) will be starring in the (2009) Romanian produced film titled Bunraku. Each of these films will have their opening release in the United States and is a chance to allow some exposure of top Japanese actors.

That would be interesting, especially watching Gackt in the dark theater with a bucket of popcorn in one hand and soda in the other.

Asian artists are trying to debut in America -- I guess it's time for actors/actresses as well. o:

demo ne... this is not the first time a japanese celebrity is starring in hollywood movies

for example: ninomiya kazunari from arashi co-starred in clint eastwoods "letters from Iwo Jima" and I must say he did a really good job ^^

I wished more movies like this were made and they would find their way into western cinemas...
tegoshi yuya also starrs in a movie which will be released in america
lets pray the movie makes it to europe

True but Gackt is not co-starring in this movie he's playing the main lead. So yeah it's a big thing you know?
