Where dreams go to work!
Last week I had the opportunity to chat with Joji Yoshida before he boarded a plane to Louisiana for a role in the latest Matthew McConaughey film, The Dallas Buyers Club. I believe most of the filming will take place in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
McConaughey has enjoyed a string of hits in recent years, including The Lincoln Lawyer, Killer Joe and Magic Mike. Hopefully, with The Dallas Buyers Club, McConaughey will keep on rolling and bring Joji along for the ride.
I admire Joji because he is a professional and he focuses on his craft. Joji fully realizes during those between film periods you must continually sharpen and hone your skills by practicing; working out and maintaining a peak efficiency in body, mind and spirit.
Best wishes to you, Joji. I hope this film opens the Hollywood door wider for you; showcases your skills and lets the powers that be in the movie industry know there are many excellent and talented actors in Hawaii.
