Masato Sakai leads "Joker" detective drama (w/ Nishikido and Anne)


Masato Sakai (36) will star in a new Fuji TV drama series titled "Joker: Yurusarezaru Sousakan," playing a police detective. NEWS member Ryo Nishikido (25) and model Anne (24) have also been cast.

The story's central character is a detective on the Kanagawa prefectural police force (Sakai). During the day, he is known as a "Buddha" for his gentle personality, pouring all of his energy into resolving each case. But at night, he transforms into a cruel punisher as his gentleness gives way to his anger towards the criminals. The series is said to pose questions about what justice and evil truly are.

Besides Anne (who plays Sakai's rookie partner) and Nishikido, the cast also features Takeshi Kaga, Ren Osugi, and Ryo. "Joker" is set to air on Tuesdays at 9:00pm, starting on July 13.
