That was over 24 years ago in 1998.
Today he is 60, and has starred in 62 movies in total, 24 since Ringu was released.
In Ringu, I think Hiroyuki Sanada looks:
Ringu scores 6.9 out of 10 on The Movie Database.
Hiroyuki Sanada's first acting role was as 'Ryuji Takayama' in Ringu, released in 1998 when he was 37.
