Fuji TV to air another ‘GTO’ special after New Year’s Day
On November 16th, Fuji TV announced that they are going to air another special episode of the popular drama remake ‘GTO‘ starring EXILE’s AKIRA (31). The new special is titled ‘GTO Oshogatsu Special (tentative)‘ (lit. ‘GTO New Year’s Day Special’) and is going to air on January 2nd, 2013.
‘GTO Oshogatsu Special’ is already the second special after ‘GTO Aki mo Oni Abare Special‘ which aired this fall. This time teacher ‘Onizuka Eikichi’ (AKIRA) and his friends have to search for the mother who abandoned her three-year-old baby. Moreover they have to deal with a bomb that is creating quite a panic. Meanwhile they are being observed by a mysterious man who will be played by fellow EXILE member MATSU (37).
AKIRA is delighted to work together with MATSU and expressed, “It’s really heartening and a great opportunity. I can learn a lot from him. Please look forward to a new kind of chemical reaction between us.”
MATSU joked, “Actually I thought they want me to appear secretly… as Onizuka Eikichi! (laughs)” He continued, “I’m already excited.”
Popular gravure idol and ‘erotic queen’ Dan Mitsu (31), who is currently portraying a masochistic woman in the movie ‘Watashi no Dorei ni Narinasai‘ alongside actor Itao Itsuji, is also going to make an appearance as a hostess in the special. Singer and actor Fukuyama Masaharu recently announced that she is his favorite gravure idol, which earned her a lot of attention and plenty opportunities to showcase her glamorous body and sex appeal in various roles.
The rest of the cast will be made up of the same actors who already participated in the drama.
