Original Godzilla Actor to Cameo in New Godzilla

Jason McDonald

The latest official set photo from the Godzilla shoot in Vancouver reveals a big surprise for long time fans of the radioactive lizard.

In the new photo, Gareth Edwards (the film’s director) stands proudly next to actor Akira Takarada who starred in the original 1954 film.  Takarada played Hideto Ogata, who helped destroy Godzilla in the original film.

There’s no word yet on what role Takarada will play in the new film, though cameo appearance is most likely.  He might be a little too old to kill Godzilla again, but you never know!  Either way, it’s very cool that the new film is paying homage to the classic.
