Chiaki Kuriyama Co-Stars with Tomohisa Yamashita in Upcoming TBS Drama
A couple of weeks ago, it has been announced that Tomohisa Yamashita will star as a 28-year-old florist named 'Sakuto Shiratori' in the soon to air TBS spring drama "Algernon ni Hanataba wo" (Flowers for Algernon) and just recently, Chiaki Kuriyama was revealed to play the female lead role in the series.

Kuriyama will have a very different role this time as she has always been playing fierce characters in her early projects. She will be 'Haruka Mochizuka', a researcher at a scientific research center for brain science, whom Sakuto gets attracted to and develops feelings for. Sakito, as revealed in the previous news, is mentally-challenged but will eventually obtain an incredible way of thinking after undergoing a brain surgery.

Along with the addition of Kuriyama, actors Masataka Kubota, Asuka Kudo, and Fuma Kikuchi of Sexy Zone will also join the cast.

The drama is set to begin in April, every Friday at 10 P.M. (JST).
