Kill Bill Actress Showing How PS3 Movie Rental Works

Chiaki Kuriyama, best known for her role as Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill and Takako Chigusa in Battle Royale is appearing in ads for a disc-based download movie rental service for the PS3.

This isn't her first game-related ad.

Back in early 2009, Kuriyama appeared in an Xbox 360 ads for Resident Evil.

In this latest ad, Kuriyama shows how to use disc-based retail service for entertainment company DMM.com. Kuriyama has previously stated that because she is predominately a film actress, that she is not as famous in Japan — the biggest celebrities in Japan appear on variety shows or TV dramas. Appearing in television ads is one way Kuriyama can stay in the public eye between film projects.

Kuriyama is a gamer herself. Back when I interviewed her for my books on Japanese schoolgirls, Kuriyama told me she liked The Legend of Zelda, role-playing games, puzzle games and Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney).

    Who cares, but, is Kill Bill only the greatest action movie ever?
    Okay don't even answer that cause I know the answer is YES!

    I laugh everytime I see Gogo's death.

    She was great in Battle Royale. I don't see her in too much, unfortunately.

    Seeing her is always easy on the eyes too.
