Kudo Kankuro to return as an actor for the first time in 12 years

Scriptwriter cum actor Kudo Kankuro will be making his return to acting for the first time in 12 years when he takes on the role of a lawyer lacking in morals in the upcoming FujiTV Gekku "Gokuaku Ganbo" starring Ono Machiko which begins its run from 14 April. Kudo last appeared in a Gekku drama 14 years ago when he acted in the Winter 2000 drama "Nisennen no Koi".

Kudo will take on the role of Toyotomi Kentaro, a lawyer who is willing to stoop low to win his clients' cases and believes that justice can be bought with money. Outside of work, he is besotted with Mayakashi Kiriko (Naka Riisa), the owner of a snack bar, even though she keeps rejecting his advances with violence.

Kudo expressed his apprehension about taking on the role since it's been such a long time from his last drama appearance and this is his first role as a lawyer. However, with an experienced cast and crew, he thinks that he should be able to pull things off with their support.
