Sawamura Ikki & Seto Koji to star in TV Asahi drama SP "Keiji Inukai Hayato"

Sawamura Ikki will be starring in the TV Asahi drama SP "Keiji Inukai Hayato" which will be shown on 24 September at 9pm. This is the second installment in the series after the first part shown in April last year. The drama SP is based on the "Keiji Inukai Hayato" series by Nakayama Shichiri and features Sawamura as the lead character Inukai Hayato who is a smart but reticent police detective who investigates difficult cases. His buddy Kotegawa Kazuya will be played by Seto Koji.

The challenge in the new installment for both actors is that Sawamura had to take on more action scenes while Seto had to memorise long lines for his dialogue. Sawamura commented that as Inukai hardly speaks, he had to express his emotions in ways other than spoken dialogue. He also hopes to be able to use these action scenes to show people who are around 50 that they can still be physically fit enough like him. As for Seto, he said that although the camaraderie between Inukai and Kotegawa has improved in the new installment, he had to speak a lot more lines this time.

Co-stars include the last installment's cast Watanabe Ikkei, Nukumizu Yoichi, Horibe Keisuke and Kato Masaya.
