Watanabe Ken & Higashide Masahiro work together for the first time in "Oyaji no Senaka"

Watanabe Ken and Higashide Masahiro will be working together for the first time in an episode of TBS' summer 2014 drama "Oyaji no Senaka" which will be shown after August in the Sundays 9pm timeslot.

Higashide plays the role of Togawa Yusuke, a part-timer at a convenience store who encounters a robbery in the early hours of the morning but manages to persuade the robber to give up in the end. What transpires is seen by a customer Takamura Koji (Watanabe) and he goes back to look for Yusuke another day to praise him for his actions. Actually, Koji has another reason for meeting Yusuke as he had met Yusuke's mother Yasuko (Yo Kimiko) during an arranged meeting but was rejected by her. Koji who wants to meet Yusuke, then suggests suddenly that he wants to let Yusuke inherit his shoe-making craft.

As Higashide is currently said to be dating Watanabe's daughter An, their first collaboration in a drama has attracted a lot of interest in how they interact with each other. The two of them met each other for the first time on 1 July and began filming from 3 July. Being both dog lovers, they are said to have chatted happily with each other off set and worked together well.
