J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


Watched a few episodes of the Gift today. It's pretty good and funny. I also saw a few faces from recent shows Baisho Mitsuko(Tokyo Tower), Shinohara Ryoko (Bad year bride), and Kobayashi Satomi (Who loves Mama most)

Re: J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


Hi vannessave.

I am amazed at all the info you have on Kimura san. This is the first time I have entered this thread. I adore this guy and think he is a great actor. that is apart from all his other talents which he shows on the SMAP shows. I have almost every video of all his shows except one or two of the very early ones which are now out of print.
He hates that nickname by the way. He is not favoured by Johnny office because he does his own thing..as in getting married and having a family. they resort to all sorts of mean stuff to stop his popularity but it never works. this last film 'Ichibun' was going to be a favourite for all sorts of awards and he was to be put up for the equivalent of Japanese Oscar. The Johnny Jimusho office would not allow his name to be nominated saying that they did not want their talent to be in competition. Made little difference really as everyone was well aware what was going on in the Japanese acting community.
His performance in Kareinu is exceptional. I am awaiting the DVD from a friend in Malaysia and it has English subs. I hope they are good subs. I have watched this drama in Japanese. It is the best. There is nothing this guy cannot do and he is so straight forward and lives in each minute and appreciates what other people can do also.
He made two trips to the American Southwest and lived with the people in Colorado. Was inducted into an Indian tribe which was quite overwhelming for him. I think made him a different man.
I should stop. sorry I have not answered your previous postings and pictures. I have been occupied recently with doctors and hospitals. Now back home and getting back to normal.

Movie 'Hero' featuring Lee Byeong Heon cranks up
2007-06-18

The movie 'Hero' starring Kimura Takuya cranked up in Tokyo on the 15th. The movie gathered attention for having filmed on location in Busan with Lee Byeong Heon.

Sankei Sports on the 16th reported that Kimura Takuya was moved by the teamwork of the staff and said the climax and scenes for the title were filmed that day.

Director Suzuki Masayuki delivered flowers to all the actors after the movie and Kimura Takuya and other cast had satisfied looks.

Kimura Takuya who played Kuriyu Kouhei, a rather peculiar high school drop out prosecutor, commented, "I was always on set or location as the teamwork of the staff and cast was great. I had a great time. This time I hope our actors can meet everyone through the movie screen. I hope to meet everyone again in the theatres."

The movie version of 'Hero' is based on the televised version that aired in 2001 with 11 episodes all exceeding 30% viewer ratings and an average of 34.3%, the highest of a Fuji TV drama series.

The special episode that aired last year had a 30.9% viewer rating gathering attention as to whether the movie will be just as successful.

Dear Vannessave,

You are really something putting up all this stuff about Kimura san. I think you are hooked!!!! I have loved this guy for years. I think he is a much underrated actor. Most people think of him as a lightweight romantic 'Idol"
in Japan. Actually when the group do their tour of concerts they get people of all ages from little children to seniors and they all love Kimura. He hates the nickname Kimutaku.

I have loads of pictures but don't know how to put them on to the web. I will send the my latest favourite by PM. I also like his commercial for 'Gatsby' which is so sexy I think he almost gets goosebumps himself...JOKE!
I loved the video of him and Shingo when they were in Cannes this year promoting their individual films. They had a really good day running around after a girl who had tickets for a big soccer match. they had to follow clues to find her and most were into small restaurants hidden away. At one of them they both cooked a meal for the chef who could hardly believe how good they were.

I love Kimura.

Peggy
