If memory serves me correctly, when I was 7 years of age, I was chosen for the Kanasawa city boys choir, spurring my life-long interest in music, theatre, and flamboyant Liberace-like clothing. I became the first Japanese to perform the role of Tony in West Side Story," the first Japanese Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar," and the first Japanese to play Jean ValJean in Les Miserables. In 1980 I chose to focus on my film and TV work; however, I have since returned to the theatre.
*whispers from off-stage*
Do I have to? I mean, I was trying to get away from that whole thing.
Right, of course.
I also played Chairman Kaga on Iron Chef.
This is ME, don't I look grand.
