Joe Odagiri (オダギリジョー) will star in a new drama series this summer on TV Asahi, titled “Atami no Sousakan.”

Joe Odagiri, (born February 16, 1976) in Tsuyama, Okayama is a Japanese actor.Commonly known just as Odajo, and also known for unusual hairstyle and eclectic style of dressing, he is the epitome of ‘cool Japan’ known as much for his persona as his work.

The show reunites Odagiri with director and screenwriter Satoshi Miki, whom he worked with on the popular mystery series “Jikou Keisatsu” in 2006 and 2007.

“Atami no Sousakan” begins with the disappearance of a school bus and four high school girls. Still unsolved three years later, the case gets revived when one of the girls reappears. Odagiri plays a sharp national investigator searching for the truth behind the incident, which leads back to a seemingly peaceful town.

Atami is located in the far eastern corner of Shizuoka Prefecture at the northern end of Izu Peninsula. The city is set on the steep slopes of a partially submerged volcanic caldera on the edge of Sagami Bay. The name literally means “hot ocean”, a reference to the town’s famous onsen hot springs.
