Shinichi Tsutsumi and Erika Toda to work together in 2015 Fuji TV summer drama
Tsutsumi Shinichi will be starring in the FujiTV Summer 2015 drama "Risk no Kamisama" (The God of Risk) which is his first solo leading role in a drama series in 16 years. He plays the role of a risk management expert who tries to save individuals and companies involved in various problems such as bribery and doctoring of accounts and would resort to anything to achieve his goals. His subordinate will be played by Toda Erika, a smart and aggressive Todai graduate who always gets into trouble with the people around her. This will be the first time that Tsutsumi and Toda are working together in a drama and their hometowns happen to be in Hyogo Prefecture. The two of them will be appearing in the new movie "Kakekomi Onna to Kakedashi Otoko" which is due to be shown in cinemas from 16 May.
Tsutsumi commented that it is interesting to see a drama which delves into the responsibilities and attitudes of a company that gets into trouble and is looking forward to the start of the filming to make a good drama with the cast and crew. On the other hand, Toda said that her first impression of the script was that it felt like she is knowing about the dark side of the adult world for the first time and was surprised at the harsh reality depicted in the story. However, she is confident that they will do well since she will follow Tsutsumi's lead.
Filming begins at the end of May.
