[/b]Tomoya Nagase stars in new Kudokan drama[/b]
TOKIO's Tomoya Nagase (31) is once again teaming up with screenwriter Kankuro Kudo (39) for a new drama series this summer. This will be their third one together, after "Ikebukuro West Gate Park" (2000) and "Tiger & Dragon" (2005).
Titled "Unubore Deka" ("Conceited Detective"), the show is an original comedy about an unusual detective (Nagase) who has a habit of falling in love with every female suspect, and his conceit leads him to believe that they are also in love with him. When he finds evidence of their crimes, he confronts them with an arrest warrant and a marriage proposal at the same time, giving them a choice between the two. Although his actual name will apparently not be mentioned during the show, he is known to everyone as "Unubore" for his conceit.
TBS says that they are lining up big-name actresses to play the guest role of the suspect for each episode. The network also hinted that there's even a case where the guest will be a male actor.
The regular supporting cast features Toma Ikuta (25) as an actor who is Unubore's friend, Mika Nakashima (27) as Unubore's ex-girlfriend, and Toshiyuki Nishida (62) as Unubore's father. The detective frequents a bar where he and a group of acquaintances are known as the "Unubore 5," consisting of Nagase, Ikuta, Jun Kaname (29), Ken Yahagi (38), and Mitsugoro Bando (54).
"Unubore Deka" will air on Friday nights at 10:00pm, starting in July.

Tomoya Nagase to star in movie version of "Soratobu Taiya"
TOKIO's Nagase Tomoya will be starring in the movie version of "Soratobu Taiya" (The tyre which flew into the sky) based on the same-titled novel by Ikeido Jun published in 2006. This will be the first movie adaptation of Ikeido's works and it will be shown in cinemas next year. The novel was made into a drama by WOWOW in 2009 starring Nakamura Tooru. The production crew had approached Ikeido three years ago about making a movie from his works thus he suggested this novel to the crew.
Nagase will be playing the lead character Akamatsu Tokurou who is the president of a transportation company. One day, an accident involving his company's truck happens where a tyre comes loose and causes a housewife's death. This results in a lack of trust and wave of criticism directed at his company for alleged maintenance faults. However, when Akamatsu investigates the truck's structure as he suspects a problem, he finds out that the truck's manufacturer Hope Jidosha is hiding a critical recall issue. In order to protect his company, employees, family and seek justice for himself, he takes on Hope Jidosha which tries to conceal the truth.
Nagase commented that he is very honoured to be able to play Akamatsu who is about the same age as him so he can identify with the feelings which the latter has and his refusal to give up in his bid to uphold justice. As such, he will try his best to act in this movie as what he always does. Filming is expected to begin in the middle of this month and wrap up by April. The rest of the cast lineup will be announced at a later date.
