Masaki Aiba talks about playing a good-for-nothing police detective

Arashi’s Masaki Aiba talked about his upcoming drama role at the “三毛猫ホームズの推理 (Mike-neko Holmes no Suiri)” press conference in Tokyo on March 19, reports Nikkan Sports and Sponichi Annex.

 

In this drama series Aiba plays a police detective who faints when he sees blood, is scared of heights, women, and ghosts.

“He’s got so many faults.  He believes everything people say to him and the bad guys take advantage of him.  But those can work in his favour too.  He’s not a new kind of hero, but I hope people will enjoy watching the ups and downs of this good-for-nothing police detective,” Aiba said.

 

It has been reported Aiba had said his drama and Arashi leader Satoshi Ohno’s drama “鍵のかかった部屋 (Kagi no Kakatta Heya)”, which both start their seasons around the same time, are totally different.

“They might be in the same mystery genre, but the characters and stories are on completely different lines.  I hope both teams can work harmoniously.”

 

The drama is based on the best-selling novel series “三毛猫ホームズ (Mike-neko Holmes)” by Jiro Akagawa.  Mr Akagawa was also at the press conference and said he had visited the drama set while they were filming.

“It helped a lot that the cat was very calm.  Maybe the cat’s an Arashi fan,” he said.

“The cat comes when you call it, if you ask the cat to wait, it’ll wait.  It’s like there’s a person inside there,” Aiba said.

 

Speaking of people inside cats, in the drama series Matsuko Deluxe will play the cat’s “human form”.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the transformed Matsuko,” Aiba said.

 

“三毛猫ホームズの推理 (Mike-neko Holmes no Suiri)” goes on air in Japan on April 14.

    Wait, I’ve no idea the cat transforms into human. Somehow missed it when I was reading about the drama before I guess lol.

      @Yan:

      I don’t know whether that’s going to happen. It might even be inside the cat’s imagination? I guess we’ll just have to watch and see!
