On Monday it was announced that Toma Ikuta will be starring in a movie adaptation of Urio Shudo’s 2000 Edogawa Rampo Award-winning novel Nou Otoko (literally “Brain Man”).In his first “dark hero” role, Ikuta will be playing a mysterious unfeeling killing machine named Ichiro Suzuki who commits murders in the name of justice.
His character possesses an unusually high intelligence and prodigious memory, but is also completely incapable of feeling human emotion.
The role will reportedly be physically demanding, involving intense action scenes. Ikuta has been training in various martial arts for about 6 months in preparation for filming, including the Filipino martial art Kali and Bruce Lee’s hybrid system, Jeet Kune Do.
The story is set in a suburban city in the wake of indiscriminate serial bombings.
Yosuke Eguchi (44) will play Chaya, a police detective who discovers Suzuki in the hideout of the bomber, a salaryman named Midorikawa. Yasuko Matsuyuki (39) will play a neurosurgeon tasked with evaluating Suzuki.
“Nou Otoko” is slated for release in February 2013.

I really like Ikuta Toma - i have a small obsession with his rather lovely nose - that he will play a dark 'hero' in a film is pretty awesome - especially a ranpo noir type! Its up against 47 Ronin - the film I am working on right now - so it looks like a good month for me ahah!

I just finished 'akihabara@deep' drama he was in, but really liked his role in 'hana kimi' better. - take a guess at my fave moment of his.. i dare you!!!!
