It’s just been announced that Takki will be starring in an upcoming special drama called “悪党” (Akutou), which essentially means “villains”. Co-starring with him is Watari Tetsuya-san, whom he hasn’t filmed with since “Kokuchisezu” in 2008. “Akutou” is a two hour special drama and it will be airing on November 30th @ 9 PM on Fuji TV.
This will be Takki’s first drama since Orthros no Inu (TBS) in 2009. It will also be his first drama on Fuji TV since Boku Dake no Madonna in 2003! That’s NINE years ago!! When you look at it that way… it has really been a long time ne!
“Akutou” is based on the novel (of the same name) written and published by award-winning novelist Yakumaru Gaku-san in 2009.
Takki plays the role of a 29-year-old private detective (and former police officer), Saeki Shuichi, who’s been commissioned by a bereaved couple to conduct a follow-up investigation on the man who killed their son. Saeki agrees to accept their case, as he can relate to the couple due to his own tragic past. When Saeki was in secondary school, his older sister was raped and murdered. Thus, Saeki uses this investigation as an opportunity to approach the “villains” who killed his sister.
Watari-san will be playing Kokure Masato, the chief of the detective agency that Saeki works at. The cast also includes other famous actors like Toda Keiko, Kaname Jun, Oosugi Ren, and Okuda Eiji.
But on a more personal note…. KYAAAAAAAAAAA!!! FINALLY A DRAMA!!!!!
