    Default Kenichi Matsuyama

    I'm surprised there isn't a thread about this actor, since he is pretty famous and popular, and is actually one of the most talented young actors I've seen in current Japanese cinema. I personally like him for many reasons. He's a very versatile actor who can play a wide range of roles from genius to weird to bizarre. As well, he seems to have an affinity for portraying wacky, weird roles, which are very memorable. I have him pegged down as the Japanese Johnny Depp for this reason.

    He is probably most famously known for portraying L Lawliet in the Death Note films. He was also Shin in the first Nana movie. He also played Johannes Krauzer in Detroit Metal City (I have yet to see this movie, but from the trailers and based on the storyline of the original manga, he'd be superb for this role).

    I love Kenichi!
    I've just seen Kamui Gaiden and Ultra Miracle Love Story at the cinema!

    I'm also surprised that there hasn't been a thread for him before.
