Hollywood producers are adding more international actors to their films in an effort to combat domestic box office bombs. They hope foreign stars will help worldwide profits, like Ken Watanbe (right) did for "The Last Samurai" in Japan, where it made more money than it did in the U.S. Film producers are also suggesting that there is a trend away from traditional shoot-em-up American action heroes in the post 9/11 world.
