Lane Nakano

While there, he volunteered for service in the U.S. Army. He was assigned to the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. His opportunity to work as an actor began when he was discovered by Hollywood director and writer Robert Pirosh, who cast Nakano as second billing after Van Johnson in the 1951 film, Go for Broke.
