This is Sato's first time playing as a detective, as he started his career with Kamen Rider Denno, played a swordsman in Rurouni Kenshin, and then a popular creator in his latest movie Kanojo wa uso wo Ai shisugiteiru. "I used to watch Odoru Daisousasen and have admired policemen, so I'm pumped up for this one. I read the script about being buddies with my dad in the drama, and I've gotten excited."
The original book was written by Shusuke Shizukui (45) and sold over 130,000 copies. The screenplay is written by Shota Koyama (26).
The role that Sato will be playing is that of a newbie detective who gets assigned to the first division of the Ginza Police department where his father (played by Watabe) whom he has not met since the divorce when he was 13 is stationed. The two are definitely not on good terms, but will be teamed up with one another. The story will develop around the son who learns the ropes of being a detective while continuously arguing with his father, and the father who still feels sorry for divorcing his wife to concentrate on being a detective.
Watabe comments: "This drama is bound to entertain people, and the screenplay is astounding. I will definitely give my best efforts for this."
So Sato is still labeled with Denno up to this day, and not Rookies, huh.
It's like a combination that no one would watch.
Complainer: "The police will never make a father team up with his son. Please cancel the show."
This combination might actually be interesting
I probably would've watched this if Seiyo Uchino was cast as the father
- でもフジなんでしょ これ
...But this is from Fuji, right?
Watabe sure has aged
- また刑事ドラマ？他のドラマ作れないの？医療ものと刑事ものばっか。あほじゃないの？Another detective drama? Can't they really make other dramas?
It's all medical and detective dramas. Are they stupid?
Another detective drama w
- 渡部出すなら、外事警察みたいな渋いのやってほしいわ佐藤はアミューズだから断れないんだろうけどIf Watabe's here, then I hope they do something cool like Gaiji Keisatsu.
He probably couldn't say no because Sato's from Amuse.
I think Shinichi Tsutsumi would be better suited as Takeru Sato's father
Kurokouchi was good.
Kamen Rider and a declining old man. Will the ratings be alright?
Watabe is a bit off. ToyoEtsu would've been a good choice.
Both are too skinny, They should beef up a bit.
If Atsuro's a detective then maybe I'll watch this... But then again there's Takeru Sato~
Looks like Watabe's been making a comeback as of late
- 俺は渡部篤郎好きだ好き嫌い別れる俳優だと思うけどね佐藤健は・・・見るとどうしても前田敦子との例の画像が頭に浮かんで噴くｗI like Atsuro Watabe.
I do think that he's a like-him-or-hate-him type of actor.
As for Takeru Sato... Whenever I see him, I always remember that picture with Atsuko Maeda and LOL w
- 隠し子役、または見捨てられた双子役で松坂桃李。なんだ、フジテレビか。Tori Matsuzaka as the hidden child, or abandoned child.
Ah, oh. It's Fuji TV.
- 佐藤健系の軽い感じの人は若いうちは窪塚洋介っぽいどこかいっちゃってる系とか瑛太みたいな何か影を背負ってる系とかないと俳優として薄くって難しそう今時のリアルな若者っぽい最近は頭がよく小奇麗で計算高さが少し透けて見えるプライドの高い感じの奴多いよなLight-feeling guys like Takeru Sato should be either:
Crazy like Yosuke Kubozuka or
Dark and mysterious like Eita,
or else, they'd have a hard time succeeding since they're too bland.
He totally feels like one of the real kids these days.
There really are a lot of guys these days who seem neat, calculating and arrogant.
This is gonna flop
And when you have their DNAs tested, they actually aren't biologically connected
