Tegoshi Yuya in Hotaru no Hikaru film, plus the debut of Koya-riida

It's been announced that Tegoshi Yuya has a part in the upcoming Hotaru no Hikaru film, which is based off a hit drama series. It's unknown how big the role is, but is for a character only being introduced in this film who is the younger brother of another new character.

The film will come out early summer of 2012 in Japan.

Also in other NEWS related news, on Koyama Keiichiro's radio program K-chan NEWS he had Kato Shigeaki on and they talked about how the new NEWS chose him as their new leader. It pretty much went down that the idea was suggested by Shige and Masuda Takahisa and Tegoshi Yuya agreed stating that it meant that Koyama would be paying for their meal. As apparently one of the roles group leaders have is to pay for the meals when they go out with group members.

With this piece of information I think I understand why some groups, mostly the younger and bigger groups, don't have official leaders. XD

Hotaru no Hikari?? I loved the drama so I´m looking forward to see the movie and of course to see what Tegoshi is playing there.

If I could choose a new leader in NEWS, I guess I would choose Koyama as well. Somehow he has the image who would fit into a leader. But oh no.. paying the meal for all members?! LOL, poor Koyama XD

I think Koyama is a prefect choice for group leader as he cares so much about the group. And yes, poor Koyama, he gets to now join the other long-suffering but greatly loved group leaders. XD
