Jin Akanishi’s younger brother Futa (23) will play his first lead in the musical “三銃士 (The Three Musketeers)” this July, it was revealed on March 6, reports Nikkan Sports and Daily Sports Online.


Yesterday, the actor had appeared in front of the press at an Azabu Fire station event where he was the special rescue team captain for the day.


It has been reported that following in his brother’s footsteps, Futa had started working in the entertainment industry when he was 16.  But after a few small roles in shows and no big break, actor had originally auditioned for a place in “The Three Musketeers” ensemble.  His good body language and singing skills caught the attention of producers and landed him his first lead role as d’Artagnan.


Futa had talked about how his older brother had supported him in his career.

“When I’m performing ‘The Three Musketeers’ he won’t be [in Japan] but otherwise he always comes to watch (my show).  He’s dependable an I respect him.  I hope I can work with him one day,” he said.


The actor also hinted he had the same worldwide aspirations as Jin.

“If I have the chance to do something in a different country other than Japan I want to do it.  I want put myself to the test,” he said.


“The Three Musketeers” will play at the Nissay Theatre in Tokyo from July 22 to 24.
