Toshiro Mifune to get a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

January 5, 2016

Actor Toshiro Mifune (1920-1997) will be honoured with a star bearing his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star will be added by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in 2016, together with new stars in the motion picture category for Quentin Tarantino, Michael Keaton, Steve Carell, Bradley Cooper, Ashley Judd and Kurt Russell.

A veteran of sixteen films directed by Akira Kurosawa as well as many other Japanese and international classics, Mifune is probably the best known Japanese actor of all time and should therefore need no introductions on this website. I will thus be offering nothing more than a link to more information.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame celebrates achievements in entertainment and despite its location is not only for film stars and directors. For instance, next year will also see names like LL Cool J, Cyndi Lauper, Shirley Caesar, Joseph B. “Joe” Smith, Itzhak Perlman, Adam Levine, and Bruno Mars added in the music category.

While Akira Kurosawa has not yet received his Hollywood star, Japanese actor Sessue Hayakawa (1886-1973) and the fictional monster Godzilla have previously been honoured.
