Meisa meets Angelina Jolie at the Salt premiere.

I wouldn't be surprised if Meisa ended up doing the Japanese voice over for when Salt releases a dubbed version in Japan. She did the voice over for Kim Tae Hee's character in IRIS, and Yu Shirota voiced over for the second guy (!!!!).

Just showing up in a picture with A. Jolie has boosted Meisa's name and image in western portals a ridiculous amount. Tread carefully - we don't want another Tokyo Drift on our hands here. Or another remake of an Asian horror film.

I'm going to look around for an embeddable version, but here it is. The official Yazima Beauty Salon movie trailer! So much that is both wrong and AMAZING about it.

Watch out for Meisa dancing and Yusuke bloody nosed and more cross-dressing hijinks than you can throw a D-boy troupe at.

With a roadshow release date of April 29, 2010

recap from Tokyograph:

The film will cover the group's fictional history up until their CD debut last year.

The parody group consists of the Yajima family, which is a 37-year-old mother named Margaret (played by Tunnels' Noritake Kinashi), plus her 12-year-old daughter Strawberry (played by Tunnels' Takaaki Ishibashi) and 18-year-old daughter Naomi (played by DJ OZMA). So far, the only known detail of the group's history is that they came from Nevada to search for Margaret's missing Japanese husband. The movie, titled "Yajima Biyoshitsu THE MOVIE ~Yume wo Tsukama Nevada~," will flesh out their story.

Meisa is playing a character called Raspberry. Yusuke Yamamoto (yay!), Seiko Matsuda, Dante Carver also star in the film.

from Tokyograph

Yajima Biyoshitsu, a three-member unit created by DJ OZMA and comedy duo Tunnels, has a movie coming out in spring 2010. The film will cover the group's fictional history up until their CD debut last year.

The parody group consists of the Yajima family, which is a 37-year-old mother named Margaret (played by Tunnels' Noritake Kinashi), plus her 12-year-old daughter Strawberry (played by Tunnels' Takaaki Ishibashi) and 18-year-old daughter Naomi (played by DJ OZMA). So far, the only known detail of the group's history is that they came from Nevada to search for Margaret's missing Japanese husband. The movie, titled "Yajima Biyoshitsu THE MOVIE ~Yume wo Tsukama Nevada~," will flesh out their story.

Meisa Kuroki (21) will reportedly play Strawberry's rival. Child actress Ayaka Wilson (12) has also been cast. Filming is already in progress, and distributor Shochiku is aiming for a Golden Week release.

DJ OZMA and Tunnels formed Yajima Biyoshitsu last summer. They made their CD debut in October 2008 with the single "Nihon no Mikata - Nevada Kara Kimashita," which charted at #3 in its opening week. They released two more singles this year, reaching #5 and #9 on the sales charts.

Meisa's staff blog updated with confirmation of the news, Meisa is playing an 11 year old girl called Raspberry. Cue lolcats. If you youtube Yajima (or is Yoshima?) Beauty Salon, you'll see them in action.  I'm imagining Meisa with a fro or a beehive right now.

Yajima Beauty Salon - move over, Beyonce?!? )

I got a surprise Christmas card (a glittery snow man) from the wonderful girls @ Unleash the Geek - when I saw the Singapore postmark, I thought of someone else - but then when I opened it, I burst out laughing.

Because not only had they wished me a very sweet holiday season, they enclosed playing cards with Yamapi's face on them - one from Code Blue and one doing 'dead fish' blue steel.

Thank you, Unleash the Geek! I always do enjoy starting my day with laughter.

that reminds me, I need to get started on my own holiday mail. And find my address book. I won't be sending out Christmas cards (far too late, as I am planning on making cards...and things) but if I have your address....


well, if I have it, I have it. :D

also, if you go over to www.meisakuroki.com (depending on time zones) her new PV "Are Ya Ready?" is up and streaming. 12/10 ~ 12/11 so hurry over to look at the wtf!sword usage and Meisa being sexyfiercecooldorky.
