Tokyohive previously reported that there will be a new drama titled “Ojiichan wa 25 sai” with Fujiwara Tatsuya playing the role of a 25-year-old grandfather.
On October 12th, a press conference for the drama was held, and the various cast members made an appearance. It’s been quite a while for Fujiwara to appear in a drama series, and this is also the first time for him to play a lead role by himself for a drama. Fujiwara said, “This is the first script I’ve ever laughed at heartily. I’ve found many more things to do as an actor.”
Kurashina Kana will play a granddaughter of Fujiwara, while Takahashi Katsumi plays his son. Other than them, veteran actors Ishibashi Renji, Daito Shunsuke, Irie Jingi, and Kikuchi Momoko will also have roles in the drama.
“Ojiichan wa 25 sai” will be air on November 15th ~ 18th, and 22nd ~ 25th at 11:50 p.m. on TBS.
