More details on Ryo's drama “Papa wa Idol”



Kanjani8
member Nishikido Ryo (27) is confirmed to star in a new drama series on TBS this spring. Tentatively titled “Papa wa Idol,” the show will have Nishikido playing himself.

“Papa wa Idol” is a remake of the 1987 drama series “Mama wa Idol,” which starred singer and actress Nakayama Miho (41) as herself. In this version, Nishikido naturally plays the part of Nishikido Ryo, a member of Kanjani8. One day, he meets a single mother of three children, and he suddenly falls in love and gets married. Yuka (31) will play the part of the mother.

The series will also have various other members of Kanjani8 appearing as themselves. 9nine member Kawashima Umika (17) will play the part of the oldest daughter.

There are plans to have the show tied in with TBS news shows, magazines, and other media.

“Papa wa Idol” will air on Thursdays at 9:00pm, beginning this April.

MORE:

“パパはアイドル! (Papa wa Idol!)” is a male version of the 1987 drama series “ママはアイドル! (Mama wa Idol!)”.  The comedy follows pop star Ryo Nishikido, who gets married to a single mother with three kids, and he goes to all lengths to win their acceptance.  However, his talent agency Johnny’s orders that he either must divorce or retire within three months, and if words gets out he is married then he will be asked to retire immediately.

It has been reported Nishikido had said playing himself would be a new experience.
“I feel nervous about it, but I think there’s a lot I can learn.  It’ll be fun shoot it and see the difference between how people see me and how I see myself.”

 The Kanjani8 star said he hoped the other members would be themselves, but not too much.

“The other members are coming on as themselves too.  I hope us losers won’t put off the people watching the show…  But I just think it would be best if they all acted as themselves,” he said.

 According to some sources at TV company TBS, who are making the drama, the drama will be as true as it can be to Nishikido’s and other pop stars’ real-life schedule.

Other real-life appearances will include actors, talents, and musicians.

 Some of the people who will not be making real-life appearances include Kanjani8′s managers.

 Finally, with the drama beginning with Ryo Nishikido’s sudden marriage, what are the chances of it happening in real life?

“Honestly, I can’t see it happening.  But when we wrap up the series, I might have something to say about it,” Nishikido said.

I'm inbetween feelings of excitement and trepidation.

Because if they can pull this off the way they want to, it might be something really cool and interesting.

If they can't pull it off, it might be one hot mess of a train wreck.

I really hope they pull it off though.

Also, OMG, Yuka, I see your continuing on with that whole "Older lover of a JE boy"...

Yuka was the one playing with Aiba in My Girl, right? <3


*laughs* Honestly, I'm not taking this drama too seriously. I bet it will be hilarious, but not too much, because...let's face it... none of the main-cast are comedians, right? And Yuka is not exactly a nobody.

I see it more as a present from Kanjani to their fans :D
That's part of their 8-year anniversary after all ^^
hirogime 28th-Feb-2012 08:27 am (UTC)
wow! I love Yuka! and Umika ♥

I hope us losers won’t put off the people watching the show…

LOL

Since Nakai on TBS in this season, too, maybe he will be guest as Nakai Masahiro, as host of Coming Soon?)

He married a single mother with three kids. He ain't the biological father lol
the_lilone 28th-Feb-2012 11:06 am (UTC)
I'm sorry WHAT? Kawashima as the oldest daughter/???? Ryo dude! You had a kid when you were 10?? That's a bit much.
ayaryo 28th-Feb-2012 11:14 am (UTC)
He married a single mother with three kids. He ain't the biological father lol
michannosekai 28th-Feb-2012 12:13 pm (UTC)
Eito as themselves....

So we'll have whiny ryo, evil childish yoko, emo subaru, gluttonous ohkura, happy-go-lucky maru, angelic yasu and of course, the infamous tsukkomi Hina.

Sounds like a good deal.

Ryo, you troll.
kibyssima90 28th-Feb-2012 12:18 pm (UTC)
I repeat LOL
pinky_fairy10 28th-Feb-2012 12:49 pm (UTC)
This is interestiiiiing. I'm excited for this XD
kyokutan 28th-Feb-2012 02:33 pm (UTC)
Nooo, not Kawashima Umika -___-'' she made Kaibutsu-kun so difficult to watch with her bad acting.
I'll just have to deal with it I guess because I have a feeling this drama is gonna be epic!
gioia 28th-Feb-2012 02:54 pm (UTC)
I wonder if this is all some kind of conspiracy trick to ease the public into Nishikido being someone's baby daddy in the real life or something. I mean, isn't this his third or fourth papa role?
pfft_idec 28th-Feb-2012 03:07 pm (UTC)
Definitely gonna be watching this. Seems LOL worthy
sibylblack 28th-Feb-2012 03:11 pm (UTC)
It's funny that the actress playing the mother is 31 and the oldest daughter's actress is 17.....
nakabibighani 29th-Feb-2012 05:54 am (UTC)
Interesting. Nishiki playing as Nishiki huh...
aranjevaja_ja 29th-Feb-2012 06:38 am (UTC)
It will be interesting! Can not wait!
Thank you!
martinrosem 29th-Feb-2012 10:50 am (UTC)
But what I'm really praying for is a Yuka-Ohno-Yankumi drama with a Yoshitaka Yuriko thrown somewhere in there...

Still, looking forward to this!
