Hiroyuki Sanada, MBE (真田 広之, Sanada Hiroyuki, born Hiroyuki Shimosawa (下澤 廣之, Shimosawa Hiroyuki) on October 12, 1960) is a Japanese actor.

Biography

Il fut membre d'Action Club, l'école de cascadeurs de Sonny Chiba.

Il émigre à Hong Kong où il tourne deux films : Ninja In The Dragon's Den et Le Sens du devoir (Royal Warriors). Lors de ses débuts dans le cinéma, il est parfois crédité sous les noms de Henry Sanada, Duke Sanada ou Harry Sanada.

En 1998, il figure dans la distribution du film d'horreur Ring ainsi que sa suite Ring 2 un an plus tard.

Dans les années 2000, il commence à se faire un nom à Hollywood. On le voit d'abord dans Le Dernier Samouraï aux côtés de Tom Cruise et de son compatriote Ken Watanabe, puis quelques années plus tard dans Rush Hour 3 et Sunshine (2007) ou encore dans Speed Racer (2008).

En 2010, il intègre la distribution de la série Lost, dans laquelle il interprète Dogen, l'un des Autres qui semble diriger le Temple.

En 2011, il joue dans la première saison de la série Revenge.

En 2013 il intègre l'univers de Marvel en apparaissant dans la distribution de Wolverine : Le combat de l'immortel. La même année, il joue aux côtés de Keanu Reeves dans 47 Ronin, mais le film est un échec commercial. On le voit aussi face à Colin Firth dans Les voies du destin dans le rôle d'un ancien officier devant faire face à l'un de ses anciens prisonniers.

Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history's most villainous masters. They find great masters—including a T-Rex, a caveman, an Egyptian pharaoh, Dracula, and Napoleon,—but after accidentally killing nearly all of them with their incompetence, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. By 1968, the lack of a master to serve drives them into depression, so Kevin, one fearless Minion, plans to find a new one for them by going back out into the world. Stuart—a bored, teenaged minion who is obsessed with guitars—joins him reluctantly, as does an over-enthusiastic Bob, whom Kevin only chooses because of no one else willing to volunteer.

During World War II, Eric Lomax is a British officer who is captured by the Japanese in Singapore and sent to a Japanese POW camp where he is forced to work on the Thai-Burma Railway north of the Malay Peninsula. During his time in the camp as one of the Far East prisoners of war, Lomax is tortured by the Kempetai for building a radio receiver from spare parts. This is apparently due to his falling under suspicion of being a spy for supposedly using the British news broadcast receiver as a transmitter of military intelligence. His only intention, in fact, had been to use the device as a morale booster for himself and his fellow prisoner-slaves. The torture depicted includes beatings and waterboarding.
