Tatsuya Fujiwara to play Shishio in the new Kenshin films

0

This be some good casting right here.

I've been a fan of Tatsuya Fujiwara for quite some time. His super melodramatic performance as Light Yagami in both Death Note films was a blast to watch, and over the past six or so years he's grown a lot as an actor. 

Which is why the news that he'll be playing the titular Shishio Makoto in the upcoming live action Rurouni Kenshin sequels fills me with great joy. If you're at all familiar with the Rurouni Kenshin manga/anime, you're more than aware of how goddamn cool a villain Shishio is. If any actor has the chops to pull it off, it's Fujiwara.

Next summer can't come fast enough.
