Former Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi Lends Voice To New Ultraman Movie

What is the former leader of one of the world's economic super-powers, the nation of Japan, qualified to do after he has retired from public service? Apparently become the leader of the "Ultraman" planet Nebula M78, that's what!

Indeed, former Japanese prime minister Junichiro Koizumi, has been cast as the voice of "Ultraman King", the respected leader of the Ultraman clan in "Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie"

A spokesman for Tsuburaya Productions reports, "We considered many people that might be able to play this crucial role, but we thought the only person that could really have the presence of Ultraman King, who brings together the clan, would be Mr. Koizumi, who once headed the state."

Ultimately, it was Koizumi's son, 28-year-old Japanese cabinet member, Shinjiro Koizumi, who talked the 67-year-old into taking the part.

"(My son) Shinjiro said I should be in it, that he liked it when he was a kid," Koizumi noted in a recent TV interview. "He said it's not related to politics so it should be okay."

Director Koichi Sakamoto's "Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie" will feature several of the different incarnations of the "Ultraman" character, including the original Ultraman, Ultra Seven and Ultraman Mebius in a battle against a virtual 'who's-who' of the long-running series classic monsters, literally 100 in all.

The film is being produced as a joint collaboration of Tsuburaya Productions and Warner Bros (Japan).
