Ohkura's new drama!

He has a new drama starting this July at 9 on Sundays on TBS, title undetermined yet. It'll star Higashiyama as a genius doctor who can guess one diagnosis after another, and the storylines will be about uncovering various medical mysteries. They will consider patient complaints, symptoms, and their home and work environments in their diagnosis. Other stars include Tabe Mikako, Yoshizawa Yuu, Koike Eiko (yay!), and Oowada Shinya. Ohkura seems to be playing a nurse :)

Here's the Hochi report:

東山紀之が天才医師役…TBS系連ドラで主役

 少年隊の東山紀之(43)が、7月スタートのTBS系新ドラマ(タイトル未定、日曜・後9時)に主演。天才的な診察で患者の疾患を解明していく「総合診療科」の医師役に挑む。

 患者の訴えを聞き、病歴や症状だけでなく、家庭や職場の環境などから病因を探る「総合診療科」を舞台にした医療ミステリー。東山演じる医師の後藤英雄は「医療界の名探偵」として次々に病名を言い当てる能力を誇るが、人の心の機微や感情が分からない変わり者。私生活では女優の木村佳乃(34)との熱愛で騒がれているが、今回のドラマでは恋愛どころか、極度の潔癖症で患者の体に触れられないという“弱点”も抱えている。

 東山が同局で連ドラに主演するのは「Dearウーマン」以来14年ぶり。医師役は05年の映画「MAKOTO」で監察医を演じて以来で、今回の役作りのために、主人公のモデルになった千葉大総合診療部の生坂政臣教授を訪問。実際の診察室も見学し「生坂先生の『患者のつくウソにも理由がある』という言葉がすごく印象的でした。患者さんたちの心理をくみ取っていけるような医者を演じたい」と抱負を語った。

 共演は東山の助手的な役割を果たす研修医に多部未華子(21)、看護師に関ジャニ∞の大倉忠義(24)。吉沢悠(31)、小池栄子(29)、八嶋智人(39)、大和田伸也(62)らが出演する。

Higashiyama to star in "medical mystery" drama
Thu, May 13, 2010 (9:21am EDT)
Shonentai member Noriyuki Higashiyama (43) is starring in a TBS drama series this summer. The currently untitled show will have a mystery touch, with Higashiyama playing the part of an unusual doctor.

Higashiyama plays the brilliant but comical Dr. Goto, who takes on the challenge of analyzing patients with undiagnosed illnesses and determining their conditions. However, he avoids even touching his patients due to his extreme phobia of germs, and he has no interest in women.

His supporting cast includes Mikako Tabe (21), Kanjani8's Tadayoshi Okura (24), Eiko Koike (29), Hisashi Yoshizawa (31), Norito Yashima (39), and Shinya Owada (62). TBS will broadcast the show on Sundays at 9:00pm, starting in July.

UPDATE: I didn't read Sanspo directly (sorry!) but like mentioned up in the full text translated by Tokyograph, Higashiyama's character also has an extreme germ phobia (will not touch any of his patients because of this) and no interest in women! Should add an interesting comical twist XD

Credits go to Cindi for the heads up :)
