The Many Faces Of Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa

Editor, Europe; Rotterdam, The Netherlands (@ardvark23)
This week, Travis Knight's Kubo and the Two Strings appears in cinemas, and it carries a strong word-of-mouth, like the review by our Jim Tudor. The latest animation by Studio Laika, the film blends stop-motion puppetry with computer graphics, and it looks gorgeous. Its voice-cast is also not to be sneezed at, with the likes of Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, George Takei... and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa.

While that last name will not ring a bell with everyone, rest assured you have seen him, probably often, and will recognize his face. Few people can look arrogant and cruel as well as Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, so combined with his martial arts skill (and stuntman job experience), he has been one of the standard go-to evil Asian-looking badguys in many, many productions. And he's so good at being a badguy, a vile one even, that you can't help but root for the hero to smash his face in.

So once again I'm going to use ten pictures of one of my favourite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images, and guess which movies or shows they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb!

And I'll post the answers next Thursday, or earlier if someone gets all of them right.

And here he is, in a behind-the-scenes promo clip for Kubo and the Two Strings, along with the (unusually benign-looking) character he plays in the film.

This one doesn't count yet for the quiz, but all others do, so please browse through the gallery: click on the edge of the picture to get the next one, and see how many of them all you can identify!
