Takenaka Naoto to appear from Ep 4 of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Cain to Abel" as Minami Kaho's fiance

Takenaka Naoto will be appearing from the 4th episode of FujiTV Autumn 2016 drama "Cain to Abel" to be shown on 7 November as Minami Kaho's fiance. This will be his 7th appearance as a regular cast member in a FujiTV Monday 9pm drama which places him on par with Fukuyama Masaharu and Eguchi Yosuke. The record holder is Kimura Takuya who has 11 dramas under his belt. Takenaka is also the first actor to appear in the Getsu 9 dramas for three years in a row since Winter 2014's "Shitsuren Chocolatier" and Spring 2015's "Youkoso, Wagaya e". In response, Takenaka expressed his joy at being invited so many times and hopes that this can continue in future.

This time, Takenaka will be playing Kurosawa Kousuke who is a weirdo investor active in Asia who appears the fiance of Takada Momoko (Minami Kaho), the aunt of Ryuichi (Kiritani Kenta) and Yu (Yamada Ryosuke). As Takenaka is well-known for making his co-stars burst out laughing during filming, Yamada was bracing himself for that but unexpectedly, Takenaka was acting seriously this time. However, with his bright red clothes and somewhat weird behaviour, Takenaka's character will be worth keeping a lookout for as he will definitely become a key person in the story.
