Osamu Mukai

His name is Osamu Mukai. For those of you who didn’t really know him, he’s one of the actor in Japan. The first time I saw him was in Banbino, while I was trying to catch a glimpse of Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun. But he didn’t really caught my eye then. The second time I saw him is in Nodame Cantabile. One awesomely made Japanese Drama. He didn’t get a big role then, but I noticed him once more with his quirky role.

Mei-Chan No Shitsuji is the break through drama for him. He once more proof that he can succeed in a quirky role. I really love how he portrays Shinobu. I think his smirk and his character is well made in that drama. He easily fits the Shinobu’s role as a powerful butler. You would want to smack him in the head while watching his role in Mei-chan ^^.

In Atashinchi No Danshi, he’s doing another great job as one of the son. I can see his playful side and a lot of his smiles as Okura Sho. He can quickly adjust from serious scenes into playful scenes and adapt to the Manga idea of the drama itself. Since a lot of his character is adapted from Manga, he’s doing a good job in portraying the characters so far. I think you need talented person, to be able to do so. Not everyone is able to perfectly portray the character in Mangabut he’s one of the actor who can perfectly fits the character in Manga.

He’s still uprising until now. The road is still unending for him. I really hope I can see more of his good works and I need to catch up on his new dramas:

Ninkyo Helper (Fuji TV, 2009)
Futatsu no Spica (NHK, 2009)
