Patricia: You can easily find pics of him through a quick search. He was in a lot of films but if you're relatively new to Japanese pop culture he also appeared in the Gaki no Tsukai batsu game specials pretty much every year for the past six or seven.

He was also a familiar face in TV police dramas, usually playing supporting roles as a higher-up in the police and such.

His wife Claudia is American and they married when “international marriage” were still on the rare side.
