Unbroken, the Angelina Jolie-directed World War II drama that opened today (Christmas Day), features a guy name Miyavi as the internment camp guard. This is the best rock-star-in-a-Japanese-prisoner-of-war-role since David Bowie in Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (and Ryuichi Sakamoto, of course).
So who’s Miyavi? His bands have included Dué le Quartz and S.K.I.N., plus he’s released a series of solo albums. Here’s a taste.
So how did he get the gig with Unbroken? The story is at TIME.
