Tomohisa Yamashita Is a Florist in Latest Starring Drama
Tomohisa Yamashita is set to star in the latest TBS spring drama, "Algernon ni Hanataba wo" (Flowers for Algernon). It is based on the 1959 novel of the same title by Daniel Keyes. It was also adapted into different versions including a stage play in 2012 and an earlier drama series in 2002, which were both taken from the same novel. In this recent adaptation, Shinji Nojima will take charge of the script.

Yamapi will be 'Sakuto Shiratori', a 28-year-old florist who has the thinking of a 6-year-old. But then he goes under an operation which led him to become intelligent. Due to the inexplicable change, he struggles to break the gap between his past and present state because he has started to feel superior over others.

The actor seems to be very dedicated to do the role as he made preparations for it. He went to a labor support center for the mentally-challenged where he helped the employees in their work and even had lunch with them.

Aside from the adaptation mentioned above, Yamapi also watched the two movie versions (1969, 2006) to perceive his role better.

"Algernon ni Hanataba wo" will start airing in April, every Friday at 10 P.M.
