Joe Shishido has died aged 86. He was originally a bland leading man in Japanese romance movies until he got bored with that, decided to have his cheekbones artificially enlarged and instead began a career as one of Japanese cinema's best bad guy portrayers, usually as a Yakuza or other mob figure. Branded to Kill is probably his most famous role in the west.
