Shinoda Mariko to appear in "Ouran High School Host Club" movie


As reported previously, the TBS drama "Oura High School Host Club" which was aired in this summer will get movie adaptation starring Kawaguchi Haruna and Yamamoto Yusuke, and today on October 16th, it was announced that AKB48 member, Shinoda Mariko will make an appearance in the movie as a spoiled daughter of a rich family.

"Ouran High School Host Club", which is based off the original manga of the same title, is a romantic comedy centered around the popular host club of the prestigious ‘Ouran High School’, where the female student Haruhi (Kawaguchi) has to disguise herself as a male host, and the movie will show "Haruhi" and the host club's president, Tamaki (Yamamoto) get into a closer relationship.  Shinoda's role will be an international student from Singapore, Michelle, and she will cut in between Haruhi and Tamaki for some kind of plot.

Though Shinoda's trademark is her short hair, she will appear in long hair by wearing hair extension in the movie.  She said bashfully about the long hair, "I look somehow mature.  It's been three years since I last had a long hair, so it feels uncomfortable."  Also Shinoda's role "Michelle" is set as half Singaporean, half Japanese, so there are scenes that Shinoda speaks English.  "It's hard.  I memorized the lines by reciting them like a charm, but I'm really enjoying the filming.  I always burst out laughing with the co-stars." Shinoda said with a smile.

Upcoming movie "Ouran High School Host Club" is scheduled to be released on March 17th 2012.
