Arashi’s Ninomiya kissing a guy
Posted by diopatra on July 22, 2009
‘Strangers on a train’, the butai starring Ninomiya Kazunari (26) from the popuar group Arashi, started its run on July 18th at the Globe Theater in Shinokubo in Tokyo. Ninomiya acts the part of Charles Bruno, who is in a love-relationship with his mother, Elsie (Akiyoshi Kumiko). He meets an architect named Guy Haines (Uchiwa Shigeru) by chance, and a plan is hatched where Charles would kill Guy’s adulterous wife, and in return, Guy would kill Charles’ dad. During the rehearsals, as part of preparing for the role, Ninomiya carried around Uchida Shigeru’s picture. ‘I would be drinking Scotch whilst looking at Shige-san’s picture. He is always in my life.’ says Ninomiya. Both of them seemed to be in sync, as whilst Uchida mentioned that ‘During the rehearsals, we were kissing over 20 times in 5 minutes. ‘ , Ninomiya chipped in, ‘We do it everyday.’ Whilst watching the 2 banter on like good friends, Akiyoshi Kumiko says rather jealously, ‘I also kissed Ninomiya but he seems to have forgotten all about that ‘.
The butai will run until Aug 11th.
