Japanese superstar Hidetoshi Nishijima has signed up with the New York-based Creative Artists Agency (CAA) for representation, Variety has reported.

The 52-year-old Nishijima starred in Drive My Car, the 2021 film that captured an Academy Award for best international feature film, which received Oscar nominations in four categories. The actor has several other prestigious awards under his belt, including those from the National Society of Film Critics and the Boston Film Critics Circle. In 2019, Nishijima garnered a best supporting actor nomination at the Japanese Academy Awards for his role in Samurai’s Promise.

Other films in which Nishijima has appeared include Shin Ultraman by Shinji Higuchi Dolls by Kitano Takeshi, and License to Live by Kiyoshi Kurosawa. In 2022, he played the role of Kotoro Minami in Kamen Rider Black Sun. He also has a number of television credits to his name, including General Rouge No Gaisen, Strawberry Night, Yae’s Sakura, and Mozu. He first came to public attention in 1993 for his portrayal of a gay character in the popular television series Asunaro Hakusho. The versatile actor also contributed his voice to several films, including dubbing for Colin Farrell in Dumbo. In 2017, Nishijima modeled for Giorgio Armani’s Made-to-Measure collection, the first Japanese man to do so.

His next project is Apple TV+’s dark comedy series Sunny, where he will star with Rashid Jones. He’s also starring in Kubi, a film directed by Kitano Takeshi that will have its premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival.

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) was founded in 1975. It describes itself as a “trailblazer” that was the “first talent agency to build a sports business, create an investment bank, launch a venture fund, found technology start-up companies, establish a business in China, create a brand marketing services business, and launch a philanthropic arm, among other industry innovations.”

Hideotoshi Nishijima continues to be represented by Quarter Tone and Greenberg Traurig, LLP.
