Yeah I think Yamapi could pull off that arrogance that Sho has...but I think Oguri Shun is more attractive hahah. It would be a nice change to see him play a jerk. He did play a yankee in Gokusen (but he ended up being a sweet guy after all) that got into a lot of fights...
*shrugs*
oh and you guys were saying something about an actress in an earlier post (I just assumed you were talking about Anna Tsuchiya..? since I didn't see any other actresses pictures before said posts) and how she needs to be able to look "evil" or something.
ahahah I should probably check again to be sure...
but yeah Anna Tsuchiya is kinda well known for having a really rough and brazen personality so I think she could pull of a super angry Kyoko lol. Here's some more pictures of her.




Visually, I think Anna could play Kyoko...it's just I've never seen her play the sweet girl that Kyoko can be too.


Thanks for finding those more "evil" pics! I can totally picture her as Kyouko!!

...as for Shou... he needs to have a less rounded face... rounder looks to friendly and nice... Shou is kind of mean... probably from not eating enough sweets... which is why his face is so angular ...

I'm still voting for Shirota Yu as Ren... unless I can find someone better...

Can't agree with Oguri Shun as show, he plays the nice guy, how could you ask him to play an immature brat that is so narcissistic.. Ahh..
I can imagine him as Yashiro though.

But i think Hiroshi could pull it off.. But he'll need to be able to show a different facet of his acting or he'd just be another Shinichi Chiaki in Skip beat.

For Kyoko, I think a new face would be appropriate since she needs to be young.. and its hard to find someone plain who can "poof" become beautiful looking after some make-up? And since Kyoko is such a versatile character, I can't seem to think of anyone who fits the image at the moment.

Just my humble opinion..


Tamaki-san has quite a range that he's hiding. He can be very cool and laid back like Ren or very hysterical like in Love Shuffle.... So I think he could pull it off. He's also able to spin his characters so he's not stuck in the exact same type... I just wish he was healthier, then we could get a Nodame 2!!

A lot of Japanese actors play half (Japanese term for half Japanese half whatever else.)

Also remember tall is relative!! If you have a medium height actor with shorter male and female leads they will seem short.

Kyouko is tricky to cast because you need someone with a range of experience and able to act cutely and then act like the girl from hell. And without the help of her puppet demons behind her it will be difficult to pull off on ones own. Usually people with that sort of range are older. Such as Yukie-san. <3.

Most actors that play teenagers are already in their 20's due to Child Labor laws. S I wuldn't count on getting exact ages, it rarely works out that way.

I think looking at Mei-chan no Shitsuji for actors could help.

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Yamada_Yu If she was younger, maybe... She fits the part. She can go from cutely to very back stabbing... She's worked with Tamaki before too and has a little experience with English. ^_^ That's good for the part.

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Sato_Takeru <-- I think he could do a Sho...

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Yoshida_Riko <-- if she was older I think she could do it. =P Maybe she could play the child role... she's pretty talented.

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Iwasa_Mayuko <-- I think would make a good Kyouko. She has a range of projects and acting experience. She can play the warm and friendly type or the cold type. She's also just on the verge of getting a leading role.

For Kyouko they would want someone with experience who could play both sides well... because I don't think they'll give it to a newbie. Moko-san however, could be a newbie.

I think for the older cast they'll probably choose veterans, like Abe Hiroshi for the head of LME. I think he's got enough range from acting as a teacher to being plain weird and eccentric to fill that role well.

If I can choose a Kyoko and Ren In the japanese actor it would be...
Kyoko = Maki Horikita ( because she's cute and love her acting )
Ren = Oguri Shun ( He look so gentle, tall and mysterious. I Love all the role he played in drama. For exemple : Hana kimi, Hana yori dango )
Sho = Tamaki Hiroshi ( He's smaller than Shun and he has the look exactly like Sho. )
Moko-san = Sada mayumi ( Someone mature should be ok )

Maybe it's weird? nahh..

...I've thought about this...but isn't Tamaki too old?? He's 29... and if you've had a chance to watch Love Shuffle... he's looked kind of worn out... he needs to take a break Go on vacation!! Go to a health spa... RELAX :D


... I'm still on a search for good candidates... and Shirota Yu still looks promising...

:D

... I DO wish there would be more Nodame Cantabile... It was soooo good!! Tamaki was great in that!!!

Ho ho ho

Whoever is playing as Kyoko is going to have a more difficult time to pull it off compare to others. She needs to have a double personality where one side of her can act as a sweet innocent girl and the other side of her can act as a cruel devil-like girl. Honestly, I can't think of any actresses who can pull that role perfectly.

For reallllll.
Tamaki needs to gain some weight back. He's too skinny.
He was perfect in the first season of Nodame.
I LOVEEE Nodame Cantabile. >.<

I Never really thought about this but i don't think that
Maki is right for Kyoko.I don't think that she can pull
the aura and the suspense.

I agree. The majority of the actresses that can play a double face are older than Kyouko...

I don't think Kyouko needs to be pretty. Nothing in her character description says this, in fact it's a "pretty with make up" type we need.

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Tanimura_Mitsuki <-- I think she might be able to pull it off. She's played the range from super timid in Cat Street to the double faced evil in Mei-chan no Shitsuji. She looks plain, but with some make up it would be good. She also looks good with short hair.

I agree! I heard he was sick which is why he lost all that weight... that's the official report. He's working on it. >.<;; I miss him.

And age in dramas doesn't matter. If he gains back his original weight he could pass for 20. He did so in Nodame which was only a few years ago. Ren just needs to look "older" than Sho or Kyouko. I think that Tamaki-san could do it. I have faith.

I agree. So far if you've looked at her roles she has yet to play someone evil and menacing. She's played the gentle type and the outgoing type, but that's half of Kyouko. She would need to be able to play the really dark type that would make your toes curl.... and I haven't seen that from her yet... she's got a too innocent image...

Aya has the same problem... she's played a number of roles, but none of them were bitch roles. She did play a rich Heiress in Celeb to Binbo Taro, but she was actually downright mean in that. In non-tecnical terms, she needs to have played a bitch role. I don't see one on her resume.

The ones I tried to list have done the "innocent" role and the "bitch" role at least once each... She would be good for a cameo though... I have a role in mind of the character who played across from Ren when Kyouko first joined LME.

Moko-chan is really difficult to cast. I've been thinking about it and I can't find anyone who has the acting experience to back it up...

http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Iwasa_Mayuko <-- she can play warm under a cold exterior. Maybe Moko if no Kyouko?
Posted 3/1/09
Thats true.
Maki has a side of Kyoko thats rather surprising.Though i dont believe she can make me shudder.
Aya too.
I like Aya.Her roles are interesting but she needs to be alittle..well...i cant really explain it..
More..Non-serious and less carefree...i don't know.

I belief Aya could pull off the auras

She will need to be more carefree as u say though, but since it's acting I've seen some roles of her n I think sh's capable of being like Kyoko lol

But i can't talk about Anna, cux I've never seen her in a drama. Is ther any good ones from her? I would like to check it out!
And Maki might also do good job, but i see her as gentleness

I would love for him to get better and get back to his "more filled out" look ...because seriously, he DID look very very TIRED in Love Shuffle...

He could pass for 20... but in his most recent work he looked older...much older (which being ill does do to you) ...still, when he gets back to 100% healthiness he could pull off a serious Ren :D

... and speaking of Nodame Cantabile...

"At first "のだめカンタービレ" was broadcasted as a regular TV drama in 2006 and then broadcasted as special serial dramas for two nights in 2008. The television show のだめカンタービレis finally coming to the big screen! The good news for fans is that two Japanese movies will be shown consecutively for the first time in the history of Japanese movies.
The funniest world, which the duo of Chiaki and Nodame presents, will be back on screen again!!

"のだめカンタービレ THE MOVIE (tentative title)"
Part 1 is scheduled to be released on 2009.12.
Part 2 is scheduled to be released in Spring 2010.
【Original story】 Ninomiya Tomoko
【Director】 Takeuchi Hideki
【Cast】 Tamaki Hiroshi (plays Chiaki Shinichi.)/ Ueno Juri, etc.

YAAAAAY!!!!!!


I had to stifle a fan girl scream. *shakes fist* Damn you. Damn you.

But a filled out Tamaki is my first choice for Ren. *.* Kyouko is still damned hard to cast... but what about the other characters besides the main 3?
