Hero the Movie on SMAPxSMAP

Hero the 2001 Japanese drama has been made into a theatrical movie reuniting the cast of the original drama. The movie is set for release in Japan this Saturday. This week on SMAP X SMAP in SMAP Bistro origianl cast members Matsu Takako and Otsuka Nene join their costar Kimura Takuya. Katori Shingo does a great imitation of Kimura as the guests eat. Kimura and Matsu have a great chemistry and have appeared together in three of my favorite drama's Hero, Long Vacation and Love Generation.

Kimura is my favorite Japanese actor starring in more dramas that I've liked then any other actor. The three mentioned above with Matsu along with Beautiful Life, Good Luck!!, Pride, Saiyuuki (guest star), and Karei-naru Ichizoku.

Women's magazine anan revealed the results of its annual survey of its readers' favorite male celebrities. Once again, Takuya Kimura topped the list. The rankings have been around since 1988, but Kimura has been voted #1 every year since 1994 Also as posted today in Tokyograph
After the bistro segment the SMAP members do craft cowboy where each takes recycled plastic and trnsforms it, kids vote on the the best, the worst are crushed.

Download the raw video for this weeks SMAP X SMAP here, there are no subtitles but it is funny enough to enjoy without.

I posted a YouTube trailer for the movie after the screen caps.
