R.I.P. Mako

Mako, the actor who was so cool they named a shark after him, died at age 72 this past Friday. Okay, actually they didn't name a shark after him, but there totally should've been a species called That-Japanese-Dude- Who-Was-in-That-Crappy- Conan-Sequel Shark.

Aside from his role in Conan the Destroyer, Mako was a character actor who appeared in The Green Hornet and Bulletproof Monk. He also did voice work in cartoons, including Aku from Samurai Jack.

I wonder if they painted ancient symbols on his body like he did to Conan?
