Arashi's Ohno Satoshi to star in Fuji TV's new spring drama special
On November 14th, it was announced that Arashi's Ohno Satoshi (30) would be starring in Fuji TV's new spring drama special, "Mou Yuukai nante Shinai", which will air in January 2012.
Ohno will play the main character -- a freeter named "Tarui Shotaro" who can't forget his childhood dream of being a hero. He finds himself planning a fake kidnapping after he receives a request from the daughter of a boss of racketeers (played by Kitaoji Kinya).
According to the production team, "Shotaro" is a character that touches a chord with everyone, and you can't help but cheer for him because of his bright, but random personality. They emphasized that Ohno was the only one who could play this role amongst other actors in his generation.
Ohno commented, "I hope this drama will be a work that helps viewers feel, 'What do I want to do now', and 'What do I like and wish for now' in the beginning of 2012. [I hope] that this drama encourages them, and that could be the trigger to take a better step forward. I will do my best in acting."
The drama is based on the popular novel written by Higashikawa Tokuya, who's known for being the author of "Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de." Since fellow Arashi member Sakurai Sho (29) stars in the drama adaptation of "Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de", Ohno will taking the baton from him in this second Arashi-Higashikawa collaboration.
Sato Ryuta (31), Narimiya Hiroki (29), Takahashi Katsumi (50) and Kanjiya Shihori (25) will co-star with Ohno in this comical suspense drama.
