      Once an aspiring song-and-dance man, Hawaiian-born James Shigeta
      holds the distinction of being the only Asian American actor groomed
      as a romantic lead. Shigeta first came to national attention when he
      won a talent contest on The Ted Mack Amateur Hour which led to a Las
      Vegas singing career. It was there that he was discovered to play
      the lead role in Flower Drum Song. Since then, Shigeta has played
      dozens of both A-movie starring roles and guest television
      appearances. Some of his films include Brother, Mulan, Drive, Space
      Marines, Blood for Blood, Cage 2: The Arena of Death, Die Hard, The
      Yakuza, Paradise Hawaiian Style, Battle of Midway and Walk Like a
      Dragon.
