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 :)
