Ikariya Chosuke,!? ..hmm He led a comedy trio called The Drifters, who had a very silly variety programme on TV on Saturday nights called Hachijidayo, Zeninshugo!"("It's Eight O'Clock! Let's Get Together!") AND THAT WAS ALONG TIME AGO!... but everyone has their time to go i guess...

.... Apparently the program took over 50% of the viewing audience in 1973, putting it in the top 50 most watched programmes of all time in Japan. Pretty famous commedian/actor

Sat, September 11, 2010 (11:59am EDT)
Comedian and actor Kei Tani passed away on Saturday morning due to a cerebral contusion. He was 78. Tani, whose real name was Yasuo Watabe, was also known for being the trombonist of the jazz band Hajime Hana and the Crazy Cats.

Before joining the Crazy Cats in 1956, he was also briefly involved with bands such as Hara Nobuo to Sharps and Flats and Frankie Sakai to City Slickers. As an actor, Tani got his first starring role in the 1964 film "Zuuzuushii Yatsu."

^ He's probably best known by the younger crowd as the music teacher trying to teach an incompetent Takenaka Naoto the saxophone in Swing Girls.

RIP. Sad

Veteran actress Junko Ikeuchi passes away
Thu, September 30, 2010 (11:54am EDT)
After more than 50 years in the industry, actress Junko Ikeuchi passed away on September 26 as a result of lung cancer. She was 76.

Ikeuchi, whose real name was Sumiko Hanazawa, started her entertainment career in 1954 when she applied to be a magazine cover girl and won. That job resulted in her joining the movie production company Shintoho, and she made her film debut the following year in "Koutaishi no Hanayome." In 1956, she won Best Newcomer in the 1st awards held by the Japan Film Makers Association, alongside Ken Takakura and Yujiro Ishihara.

After numerous films, Ikeuchi began a transition to television, and her first big TV role was the lead in the 1960 afternoon drama "Nichinichi no Haishin." After that she appeared in countless works on both the big screen and the small screen. With the hit drama series "Onna to Misoshiru" (1965-1980), she established her ability to attract high ratings. She later made her theater debut in 1969.

Ikeuchi was active as an actress up until her death. This past spring, she appeared in the play "Sanbaba." In the past few years, her television roles included "Ninkyo Helper," "Bara no Nai Hanaya," and "W no Higeki."

In 1957, Ikeuchi married actor Shinichi Yanagisawa, but they divorced a year later.

Ikeuchi received several honors and awards for her contributions to the arts, including the Shiju Hosho and the Geijutsu Sensho.
