Masao Kusakari (草刈 正雄, Kusakari Masao, born September 5, 1952 in Kokura) is a Japanese actor and model.
Masao Kusakari was born in Fukuoka Prefecture (on the Southern island of Kyushu) to a Japanese mother and an American father who died in the Korean War. Because of his heritage, he was taller than the average Japanese of the time. Considered stunningly good looking, his debut into the public eye began when he became a model for the Shiseido Cosmetics Company in the early 1970s. From there he broke into television and film, where he has worked steadily for over 30 years. He has a broad range, from starring in a television comedy series such as "Tsuhan Man" ("Shopping Hero" about a home shopping network), to singing in musicals such as "Victor-Victoria," "My Fair Lady" and "Cabaret."
