Another fangirling this time for the Engrish Boy, (Keito to make big screen debut)

lol sorry Azunyan know your posting but i wanted to post this .... just cos it's sooo funny to see the kid who never speaks in JUMP finally get a staring role.... kinda like Ueda in Konkatsu

cr to erintaguchi.lj

Hey! Say! JUMP’s Keito Okamoto (17) will make his drama acting debut in the final season of “3年B組金八先生ファイナル (3-nen B-gumi Kinpachi Sensei Final)”, it was revealed on February 4, reports Sankei Sports.

Okamoto’s father and Johnny’s senior Kenichi Okamoto (41) had also starred in the long-running drama back in 1985, making this the first time a Johnny’s father and son have, in a way, gone to the same school. However, it does mean Keito’s character is the son of his father’s character.

Drama producers have said Keito will instead play a character who holds the key to this season’s class. He will play a troublemaker who has been thrown around several junior high schools before being transferred to Sakura Junior High. In the drama he shuns away from everyone, but Kinpachi sensei (Tetsuya Takeda) does his best to get his new student back on his feet.

It has been reported Keito spoke confidently about his acting debut role.

“I feel very grateful to have been chosen to star in this prestigious show,” he said.

It has also been revealed that Keito had not relied on his father’s name, and had beaten his competition through the show’s audition process.

“This is a show that generations of my seniors have been in. I want to give it everything I’ve got to overcome that pressure,” he said.

The Kinpachi Sensei drama series have been made since 1979, and this year’s season will be the grand finale to the show’s 32-year history. Over the years a large number of Johnny’s talents have starred in the show, from Masahiko Kondo (46) to Kazuya Kamenashi (24).

reasons for loving this kid.... just cos he's so awkward and tall... and speaks english therefore probably the only member of JUMP i can have a long conversation with if we ever meet (you never know) :P

Ryuu done for now... waiting for Azunyan~
