An even more complete source is the Tarento meiboroku, or what is usually called just the "Red Book" (guess why). It doesn't have the nice bios of the KJ dictionary. It's strictly contact info, as it's the book the industry uses to find people. 

There are other sources as well, all in the Research Guide. The Red Book, and its companion Green Book, are updated every year so you can usually find them dirt cheap at the furuhonya. A nice thing to have on your shelf.
