Matsuda Shota to star in a drama

March 4, 2009

Matsuda Shota is going to play a lead in a drama! In fact, it’s in a drama that sounds hilarious and awesome. I love it when dramas joke about the cliches of dramas, so having a whole shoe devoted to something like that… sound great. And the mystery genre–whether it’s with movies, books, or TV–can be so very stereotypical.

I wonder how Matsuda will be as a lead, but I can’t make any huge judgments because it’s been at least a year since I’ve seen him in anything. I hope for the best!

Actor Shota Matsuda has just picked up his first true lead role in a television drama. Titled “Meitantei no Okite,” the show is based on a “parody mystery” work by award-winning author Keigo Higashino.

The original “Meitantei no Okite” is a short mystery collection that takes a humorous approach to many of the genre’s cliches. Matsuda stars as the “famous detective” Daigoro Tenkaichi, while Yu Kashii plays the female lead as a rookie cop. Yuichi Kimura has also been cast.

“Meitantei no Okite” will air on TV Asahi on Friday nights at 11:15pm, starting in April.
