According to his publicist, Tony and Oscar-nominated actor Ken Watanabe has been forced to delay his return to Broadway's "The King and I" due to a bout with stomach cancer. The 56-year-old Japanese actor, who made his American stage debut last year opposite Kelli O'Hara in the revival of the play, was due to return to the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical from March 1 until April 17. Craig Bankey, Watanabe's press agent, said on Tuesday that the actor has undergone surgery and is recuperating at a hospital in Japan. Watanabe, who has appeared in Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" and "Inception," also starred in the reboot of "Godzilla" and "Letters From Iwo Jima." The actor also earned an Academy Award for best supporting actor in "The Last Samurai."
