J-actor mini-bio: Kubozuka Yosuke

Name: Kubozuka Yosuke Birthday: 5/7/79 Height: 5' 9" (177cm) Weight: 121 lbs (55kg)

Where do I know him from? Strawberry on the Shortcake, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Great Teacher Onizuka, Long Love Letter

Tell me some more! In 2004, he survived a 26 meter (approx. 85 ft) fall from his apartment balcony with only minor injuries. This has been rumored to have been a suicide attempt due to his declining popularity. Supposedly he had glorified the use of marijuana and was active in movements to legalize the drug. It has also been rumored that he is prone to violent attacks and repeated suicide threats.

What is your opinion of him? I've watched quite a few of his series and I think he is a really good actor. He has a bit of the 'boy next door' vibe. If the rumors about him are true, I hope that he got some professional help. He has been making a comeback in movies since his fall. I really hope this means that he has given up his bad boy ways and learned how to behave properly.
