Actor Kenichi Matsuyama (24) has been revealed as a supporting cast member in the upcoming movie "Kaiji," which stars Tatsuya Fujiwara (27). This reunites the pair, who last worked together in the hit live-action "Death Note" films in 2006.
"Kaiji" is based on Nobuyuki Fukumoto's popular manga about a gambler named Kaiji (Fujiwara) stuck in a dangerous game trying to clear an enormous debt. Matsuyama plays Kaiji's colleague Sahara, who shares a similar fate.
The "Kaiji" movie was first announced last year and has been scheduled for an October 10 release. The supporting cast includes Yuki Amami and Teruyuki Kagawa.
