Ikki Sawamura to star in TV Asahi Special

Sawamura Ikki will be starring in the TV Asahi drama SP "Keiji Inukai Hayato" which will be shown on 24 September at 9pm. This is the second installment in the series after the first part shown in April last year. The drama SP is based on the "Keiji Inukai Hayato" series by Nakayama Shichiri and features Sawamura as the lead character Inukai Hayato who is a smart but reticent police detective who investigates difficult cases. His buddy Kotegawa Kazuya will be played by Seto Koji.

The challenge in the new installment for both actors is that Sawamura had to take on more action scenes while Seto had to memorise long lines for his dialogue. Sawamura commented that as Inukai hardly speaks, he had to express his emotions in ways other than spoken dialogue. He also hopes to be able to use these action scenes to show people who are around 50 that they can still be physically fit enough like him. As for Seto, he said that although the camaraderie between Inukai and Kotegawa has improved in the new installment, he had to speak a lot more lines this time.

Co-stars include the last installment's cast Watanabe Ikkei, Nukumizu Yoichi, Horibe Keisuke and Kato Masaya.

Ikki Sawamura and Yoshiyoshi Arakawa to appear in TV Asahi drama special

Sawamura Ikki and Arakawa Yoshiyoshi will appear in the new TV Asahi drama SP "Soshite dare mo inakunatta" starring Nakama Yukie which will be shown at 9pm on 25th and 26th March.

The mystery story depicts how 10 people at a hotel on an isolated island were killed one by one and the 10 bodies were discovered later. Nakama Yukie plays the role of a former swimmer Shiramine Ryo who is a home tutor rumoured to have caused the death of her student in a swimming pool 5 years ago. Co-stars include Watase Tsunehiko, Tsugawa Masahiko, Yo Kimiko, Yanagiba Toshiro, Daichi Mao, Mukai Osamu and Kunimura Jun who play the guests at the hotel while Hashizume Isao and Fuji Mariko will play the butler and his wife respectively.

Sawamura plays the role of a detective from the 1st section of Metropolitan Police Department who is very observant and doesn't miss out anything. Arakawa plays a lieutenant from the Hachijojima Higashi Police Station who is sent to investigate the case as the island where the murders took place are under its jurisdiction.

Sawamura commented that their characters in the drama don't really get along with each other but he really enjoyed bickering with Arakawa on screen. In response, Arakawa pointed out that the director said that the balance between their characters made the drama even more interesting so he was glad that things turned out well in the end.

Ikki Sawamura to star in TV Tokyo 2017 Fall drama

Sawamura Ikki will be starring in the new TV Tokyo Autumn 2017 drama "Universal Koukokusha Anata no jinsei urikomimasu" (Universal Ad Agency I will sell your life) which will begin its run from October 2017 in the Fridays 8pm timeslot. This will be Sawamura's first leading role in a TV Tokyo drama. The drama which is based on the popular novel "Hana no sakuradoori" in the "Universal Koukokusha" series by Naoki Award winner Ogiwara Hiroshi, will have its script written by Okada Yoshikazu.

The story features Sawamura as the lead character Sugiyama who used to be an elite employee at a top-notch advertising agency but failed in striking out on his own even though he had a lot of faith in his abilities. He then joins a small advertising agency named Universal Koukokusha in a sleepy seaside town and works hard in carving out a niche for himself. Sawamura who had starred in two SPs of this series, said that he's eagerly anticipating the start of the filming as this is the first time he is acting in a TV Tokyo drama series. With this drama, Sawamura has also achieved a "Grand Slam" by securing leading roles in dramas from all 5 Tokyo private networks which he attributed to the people he had met over the last 21 years of his career and the viewers who have been supporting him all this while.
