New Drama has Nagase Tomoya in Disguises

'Karei naru Spy', starring Nagase Tomoya, Fukada Kyoko and veteran actor Watari Tetsuya will begin airing on Japan NTV starting July 18th. Nagase will play the role of a con-artist, who's been convicted on 13 counts and is serving a 30 year prison term. In an effort to protect the population, the Japanese government offer his release in exchange for his services. As a secret agent, Nagase will work to protect the country's security and to prevent terrorism in Japan.

Watari Tetsuya will be playing the Prime Minister in the series. Watari and Nagase have worked together five years ago on the series 'Otouto'. Collaborating again, Watari believes that Nagase's acting will definitely bring flair and charisma into the character.

Nagase must take on various disguises in the new series. He will pose as a teacher, doctor and even as a Korean superstar. It will be a challenging role for him. Nagase also praises his co-star, saying that Tetsuya is suave and well-suited for his role as Prime Minister. Let's see if the Japanese version of 'Catch Me If You Can' can achieve a breakthrough.
