SMAP's Inagaki Goro to act in new FujiTV Summer 2015 drama "HEAT"
SMAP's Inagaki Goro will be joining the cast of new FujiTV Summer 2015 drama "HEAT" featuring EXILE's AKIRA as the lead. Inagaki will play the role of Hibino Jin, the president of a real estate company named "Global Toshi Kaihatsu" where Ikegami Tatsuya (AKIRA) works at. On the surface, Hibino is a man who talks gently and grows roses in his office but he is ruthless to those who don't perform well thus resulting in the rapid growth of his business. With regard to his character, Inagaki commented that although he had played many unique and somewhat oddball roles or company presidents in the past, he hopes to show a new side of him this time so that viewers will find it entertaining. As for how to prepare for his role, Inagaki revealed that he has many friends around his age who are either directors or presidents of companies so he can pick up useful tips from them. With regard to his collaboration with AKIRA, Inagaki revealed that they had met many times during music programmes so it will be interesting to see how things turn out between them as they work together as actors this time.
