Masatoh Eve, born
as Satoshi Murota, is probably best known for
playing Motohiko Sugiura in Godzilla
vs. Megaguirus (2000). Eve actually dropped
out of high school, after moving as an adolescent,
and found his true calling when he auditioned
for a NHK drama program. This eventually led
to an early career doing anime television
shows, lending his voice to several characters,
until the early 1980's when he started to make
appearances in several live action motion pictures.
Eve is noteworthy for being the only Toho actor,
other than Toshiro
to appear in a Steven Spielberg directed film: Empire
of the Sun.
