Toshiro Mifune On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Actor Toshiro Mifune Honored With Walk of Fame Star

Japanese actor Toshiro Mifune, who starred in Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai” and the U.S. TV adaptation of “Shogun,” will finally get to leave his mark on the Hollywood Walk of Fame more than 17 years after his death.

Known for his intense screen presence and portrayal of gruff characters with a tough but selfless demeanor, Mr. Mifune had fans around the world. Among them was Star Wars creator George Lucas, who reportedly offered him the roles of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader when casting the first film in the series.

Here at Mars HQ, we are huge fans of Mifune. It is no small accident that the character of Akagi bears a strong resemblance to him. The amount of intensity he was able to convey in a scene without uttering a word was incredible. If you’re not familiar with his work do yourself a favor and go watch Yojimbo.
