Still in Tokyo, still working

Another brief update, and two pics.

That's prolific character actor Ren Osugi with assistants Midori and Masato, after an interview taping for the aforementioned Miike DVD. Still can't say what it is...and not sure why Osugi-san looks like a deer caught in the headlights. He and his manager were in a hurry for another appointment, and were kind enough to give us an hour to discuss his long career, including collaborations with Miike, Takeshi Kitano, Sabu, Sion Sono and others.

And here he is with the gracious Laputa staff, who were thrilled to meet such a famous guy.

More to come on Monday, with three additional interviews before heading home.
