big in japan

Here's a story on Japanese actor Kazunari Ninomiya, who stars in Clint Eastwood's Letters From Iwo Jima: The story is written on this actor's face. He plays Saigo, "an apolitical baker conscripted into the doomed defense of the island." From what I hear, his story is particularly heartbreaking. Virtually unknown to general American audiences, he's actually a huge all-out mega-star in Japan. He looks like a kid. Go, kid, go.
