Sometani Shota to play Nikaidou Harunobu in the real-life adaptation movies of "Sangatsu no Lion"

Sometani Shota will be playing the role of Nikaidou Harunobu in the upcoming real-life adaptation movies of "Sangatsu no Lion" starring Kamiki Ryuunosuke who plays the lead character Kiriyama Rei. In order to look convincing as Nikaidou who is a close friend of Kiriyama since they were young and is overweight due to him battling an illness, Sometani had to put on special makeup and costumes.

Sometani admitted that when the first teaser of the movie was released last month, there was a fleeting scene of him which led the netizens to guess who might be playing Nikaidou. He was concerned that the fans might be disappointed to know that it was him but commented that they will see an entirely different Nikaidou in the movie which will be in great contrast with the image that Sometani usually projects. As such, he hopes that people will forget about his true identity while watching Nikaidou in the movie.

Part 1 of the movie will be shown in cinemas from 18 March 2017 while Part 2 will be shown from 22 April.
