Nakai Masahiro to play autistic savant in drama series “Ataru”



SMAP’s Nakai Masahiro (39) has been given the starring role in an upcoming drama series titled “ATARU.” This will be his first lead role in a drama series since “Konkatsu!” in 2009.

The show is a mystery drama revolving around a man named Ataru, played by Nakai. Ataru is autistic, but he is also a savant, possessing extraordinary memory and powers of deduction that he uses to solve difficult cases. The character is being likened to Dustin Hoffman’s award-winning role in the 1988 movie “Rain Man.”

Kitamura Kazuki (42) plays a police detective who works with Ataru and makes use of his abilities in his investigations. Kuriyama Chiaki (27) plays a former detective who also assists Ataru.

TBS will broadcast “ATARU” on Sundays at 9:00pm, beginning this April.
