ABSTRACT
The article considers the factors that hinder Japanese celebrities from making it into the international scene. Ken Watanabe's performance in the film The Last Samurai earned him an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor in 2004, but when director Edward Zwick met the actor with his faltering English for the first time Zwick was not impressed. Japan remains underrepresented in the global celebrity realm. Most Japanese-language films fare badly overseas.
