Have you ever bested a brown bear with nothing but you own brawn? Probably not, but I wanted to tell you about someone who has. That's right, Japanese action star Tak Sakaguchi (Shinobi, Versus).
Tak will be attending this year's AFI Dallas International Film festival for his movie Yoroi: The Samurai Zombie, we at FUNimation had the pleasure of having Tak come to our studio. He even did an interview about his role in FUNimation's release of Shinobi. Want to see? Check it out on our video player. You might have seen my picture with him in the Flickr gallery. (I really geeked out and printed it for him to sign before he left the office). Here's a scan of the autographed picture. I think my hair's a bit longer now.
So anyway, if you're attending AFI Dallas, check out his film in addition to Evangelion 1.0. Keep an eye out for him. I'll be around during the Evangelion 1.0 screenings also if anyone cares - look for some dude with hair like Thobari from Nabari no Ou but a little shorter.
So which of Tak Sakaguchi's movies have you seen? Oh, did I mention he also has been buried alive by the Yakuza?
