Kimura will be playing the role of the android named 安堂ロイド (Lloyd Ando). He will also be playing the role of the genius scientist Reiji Matsushima who has deep connections with Lloyd. It will be KimuTaku's first time playing a double role. It is said that Lloyd will not speak and move like a robot, but will act similarly as a human.
Kou Shibasaki will be playing the role of a talented IT company employee, Asahi Ando.
"This is a new challenge for me. I'm excited about the scenario of playing in the present and in the world 100 years from now, and I want to be able to express well how Lloyd will change once he's in the present world."
- ターミネーターやん(´・ω・｀)Oh, Terminator (´・ω・｀)
- よっしゃ！コケるで～Alright! Let's flop!
- わーおもしろそー（棒Wow, looks so interesting (monotonous)
- キムタクはいいかげん年相応の父親役やれよリアルじゃ二児の子持ちのくせにいつまでもチョマテヨキャラが通用すると思ったら大間違いだぞSeriously, KimuTaku should play more age-appropriate roles like father roles.
He's already a father of 2 in real life, and it'll be a huge mistake if he thinks that his "Cho, Mate yo" character will still be able to cut it from now
- アンドロイド「元の世界に帰ります」木村「ちょ待てよ！」Android: "I'm going back to my own world."
Kimura: "Cho, mate yo!"
- 最初は柴咲コウと犬猿の仲で喧嘩しながら恋に落ちるんだろI bet that he'll have a cat & dog relationship with Shibasaki at first, then they gradually fall in love with each other.
- キムタクはもう年齢的に婦女子に夢を売るポジションには無理が出てきてないかDon't you think that age-wise, KimuTaku has started to lose his appeal as this man who gives dreams and hopes to the middle-aged housewives?
- 惨敗確実ｗｗｗThis will definitely suffer a humiliating loss www
- （４０）と（３２）の時空を超えた究極のラブストーリーThe ultimate love story through time and space of (40) and (32)
- 次シーズンはドラマ見るの水曜日(相棒とリーガルハイ)だけにしようかな…Maybe I'll just watch the Wednesday dramas next season... (Aibou and Legal High)
- 安堂ロイドて昭和のギャグマンガのセンスだなAndo Lloyd?
Sounds like a gag manga from the Showa era.
- これは木村より香取がやりそうな役だな。半沢の後じゃ大コケしそうだな。This actually sounds more like a role that Katori should be playing.
It'll probably flop since it's coming after Hanzawa.
- むしろ見たくなってきたw見ないけどThis actually makes me want to watch it.
But I won't.
- これは大コケの予感wThis feels like it's going to be a huge bomb w
- 正直、キムタク・・・きっつい、もうｗHonestly, it's already getting tough for KimuTaku...
- 平均視聴率15％行かねえだろI don't think it will even average to 15%
- 半沢後キムタクなら、衰えたとしても初回はえらい数字出るんじゃないのBut since it's KimuTaku coming after Hanzawa, I think the first episode will at least get monstrous ratings.
- 今やってる半沢の堺とえらい違いだなｗ40過ぎてロボット役てSuch a huge gap from Sakai who's doing Hanzawa right now.
A robot role at 40..?
- このセンスの無さは異常wI can't believe how bad their sense is for doing something like this
- 10年一昔とは言うけどGOOD LUCKからもうそんなに経ったんだな。日９はＴＢＳはお金の掛け方が違うな。牙城って感じ。日９枠では「華麗なる一族」「南極物語」でキムタク主演だったな10 years since GOOD LUCK, it's already been that long?
TBS really spends differently when it comes to Sunday-9 dramas. It's like their stronghold.
KimuTaku also starred in Karei naru ichizoku and Nankyoku Monogatari, both Sunday-9ers, right?
- 堺とキムタクは年齢的にはそう変わらないだけに、モロに演技力の差が露呈してしまうよね。製作サイドは来年の4月クールからと言う選択肢は考えなかったのかね？Sakai and KimuTaku don't have that much of an age gap, but I'm afraid this will expose the difference in their acting abilities.
Didn't the producers have the option of doing this in next year's spring drama season?
- もうキムタク用ドラマはお腹いっぱいI'm already full of these KimuTaku dramas
- キムタクに一人二役やらせるなんて無謀すぎる何やってもキムタクな演技でどのドラマも同一人物化してるのにMaking KimuTaku play 2 roles is too much.
He's already playing similar characters in all the dramas he takes part in. He's just KimuTaku in whatever he does.
- キムタクと堺はエンジンで競演してるねといっても、主役と脇役でもの凄い格差だったけどこの10年で役者としての評価は完全に逆転したなKimuTaku and Sakai were both in Engine, right?
But the importance of their roles had such a huge gap from each other.
Their standing as actors have completely switched in these past 10 years.
- ラブストーリーって最終話のラストでキスして終わるだけのパターン多すぎThere are too many dramas whose finales end with a kiss
- どういう頭してたらこんな激寒タイトル堂々と出せるんだろうI wonder what kind of brains the guy who thought of such an embarrassing title has
- どっちも10歳若い奴にやらせろよｗｗｗBoth roles should be played by actors 10 years younger www
- タイトルがすべくりまくってるキムタクよくこのタイトルにOK出したなThe title has FAIL written all over it.
I'm amazed KimuTaku gave his OK to this one.
- 木村って昔は普通の演技をしてたのに、何で変な癖がついたんだろうね平均視聴率が高いから使う側は使いやすいよねKimuTaku used to act normally, I wonder where he got this weird habit of his.
But the producers still want to use him since he does bring in high average ratings.
- みんなボロカス言うけど個人的にはキムタクは凄いと思う、とても４０には見えない。「今年３０になります」って言われても「あぁそうなの」って言うわ。全然歳を取らないのは、我々２ちゃんネラも見習わなきゃな。Everyone's been bashing him here, but I personally think KimuTaku's amazing. He doesn't look 40 at all.
Even if he says, "I'll turn 30 this year", I'll just go, "Ah, is that so?"
Us 2channelers should also take his example and find the fountain of youth ourselves.
- こんなつまらなそうなドラマよく受けたな裏番組しだいじゃひとケタ回もあるかもしれんぞI can't believe he accepted a seemingly boring drama like this.
This might even drop to single digits depending on the shows on the other channels.
- なんかMrBRAIN臭がするなもっと普通のキャラでいいじゃんなんだよアンドロイドってwIt kinda feels like Mr. BRAIN.
He should play a more normal character.
An android? WTF
- これと同じようなドラマでアンドロイド・モコミチと愛撫が壮絶にコケてたようなI remember this huge flop of a drama similar to this which Android Mokomichi and Aibu starred in.
- もうキムタクはヒーローみたいに検事ではっちゃけてる役みたいなのがいいんじゃん今度は弁護士とか医者みたいな弱いものの味方の設定でI think KimuTaku is more suited to playing roles like that crazy prosecutor in HERO.
I'd like to see him as a lawyer or a doctor who's an ally of the weak next time.
- タイトルがヤバいw爆死半端ないThe title is just... w
The feeling of failure is too much.
- ドラマ組がまともな特殊効果とか無理だろ笑えるネタが沢山提供されそうだI don't think dramas will have decent special effects.
I get the feeling that this drama will provide us with a lot of laughing points.
- 脚本ありきだから半沢はウケてるのにこれはキャストありきで後から無理矢理話作ったんだろ、これは見ないHanzawa's popular because they emphasized the script first.
With this one, they put the cast ahead and just forced the story later on, right? I'm not watching this.
- 初回２０パー後１０パーだろうなIt'll probably get 20% for the first episode then settle in the 10s afterwards.
- 半沢のあとでこのコメディーはきついなｗ佐藤と前田で放送してた青春モノって感じならまだこの手の題材も有りだとは思うが。A comedy after Hanzawa's seriously tough to bear.
If this was just a youth-oriented drama like the one with Sato and Maeda, then this kind of plot would have been acceptable.
- 初回20%で「半沢越え！」って言われてあとグダグダになりそうI think this will get 20% for the first episode, will get hyped and people will say, "It'll surpass Hanzawa!", but will drop and be a mess later on.
- 安堂ロイド…もうこれだけで見る気なくすｗ半沢も「俺たちバブル…」だったらこれだけ人気にならなかったと思うしタイトルって大事だね(´・ω・｀)Ando Lloyd...
This alone makes me lose interest w
If Hanzawa kept the original title Oretachi bubble..., it probably wouldn't be a big a hit as this. The title sure is important (´・ω・｀)
- 木村断れよ半沢の後にやる事じゃないKimura should've said no to this.
This isn't something that's supposed to be done immediately after Hanzawa ends.
- いい加減普通の父親役やったら？Why not do a father role once and for all?
- 42歳がモデルのアンドロイドなんて魅力が無いなぁ。女だって「もっと若いのをよこせ！」って怒るよ。But there's no appeal to an android who was modeled after a 42-year-old.
Even a woman would get angry and say, "Give me a younger one!"
- 許可はとってあるのかね？So did they get permission to use the name?
- アンドロイドなのに喋り方はマジでとか超～すげえとかちょ、待てよーとかなんだろうなSo even an android will be speaking phrases like, "Maji de!?" or "Cho- sugee" or "Cho, mateyo-", huh
