Nakajima Yuto in bank drama

Nakajima Yuto will be in a drama in the upcoming season. He will have a supporting role in the TBS drama Hanzawa Naoki. The drama will begin airing on July 7th.

It is nice to see that Nakajima is getting another drama role. I hope this becomes a regular thing for him as Hey! Say! JUMP needs more members active in getting drama roles. Then they will not have to depend so much on Yamada Ryosuke in getting a lead drama role to do a theme song. That is of course if Nakajima can get to the point of being a drama lead. But these supporting roles are definite steps toward that.

So far the summer season looks to be a rather Johnny's heavy season for dramas with the few that have been announced. I am very interested in what is going to replace Bad Boys J for the late night NTV drama, especially when alumni from those, Nakayama Yuma, Matsumura Hokuto and Jesse, are already tied to another drama for the season. I just hope that if they do another romance drama for the summer they do one that is more interesting than Sprout.
