Gackt in May Dorama!
I'm not sure if anyone is aware of this yet, but it's official! Gackt will be in a dorama called Mr. Brain. He will appear in an episode, as far as i know, and it'll be aired on TBS May 23, so look for him! (He'll be appearing in episode 2 on May 30 by the way)

There will also be other guests, Ebizu Ichikawa and Takuya Kimura will be there for the first story. On the second one Ryoko Hirosue and KOYUKI.

I think it'll be worth watching even if he only appears in one episode. eh? Here's the day and hour that Dears released.

Sorry for bothering those of you who already knew about this... (u。u)

Gacktのドラマ出演が決定!
5月23日スタートのTBSドラマ「MR.BRAIN」(土曜19:56~)に、Gacktの出演が決まりました。
Gacktは第2話(5月30日OA)に登場します。
ご期待ください!

Now I'm really looking forward to seeing Mr. Brain. What a line up of actors and actresses. He is so mesmerizing on the screen. He is weird and sexy at the same time. He reminds me of the transvestite on the Rocky Horror Picture Show

Japanese Yahoo Entertainment

Gackt has been given the lead role in a theatrical version of the jidaigeki story "Nemuri Kyoshiro." This will be his first performance in a stage play.

Originally a series of novels by Renzaburo Shibata, "Nemuri Kyoshiro" has been the basis of more than a dozen films and several television dramas. The story revolves around a sleepy-eyed swordsman born from a Japanese mother and a foreign father.
Performances are scheduled to begin at the Nissay Theatre in Tokyo next May.

At the press conference Gackt revealed his real age.
Being 36 years old.
Edit:There were many results for Nemuri Kyoshiro on DramaWiki so I don't really now which one it's supposed to be.

I have "Redemtion" n it so cool song... :wub:
I showed some pics of Gackt to my friend..he says he looks bit like a girl (ARRGHHH!)...n he couldnt belive that such a strong voice is coming from Gackt's mouth!
If there is someone like Gackt in my country ...I would marry him without a single doubt...gtg.ja-na!
Hm to be honest he can look like a woman on some pictures coz the first time i saw him me and my sister had a debate as to whether he was a woman or a man, but on some others he looks masculine which i think suits him better, coz otherwise he looks way too gay and liking him makes me feel as if i like a woman. but the pic u posted doesn't it look like he has boobs? to me for some reason it does. no offence.

For whatever reason I never thought Gackt was anything but masculine. His personality is much too strong for a woman. I used to enjoy seeing him on HeyHeyHey and he always won every game competition and always was very much a man. You only have to see and hear him singing with the group once and you know he is definitely not a woman and not gay. Very interesting person altogether.

Hm, I think the only song by Gackt I know is Secret Garden, and I saw also some shirtless one song from a concert, and I faintly remember one "gothic" video (a lot of blue color, I think) when my hubae (errm.. kouhai) were trying to convert me to J-rock (fail).
I have one opinion on Gackt though - one may not like him, but one has to respect him.

I agree. I personally do love his music (most of it), but his style and overall weirdness is something I really don't want to get into.
He's nuts, but the guy is a kick ass musician and business man and whatever else he does, which he probably does just as well.

There are some people that have talent or talents and then there are some that have them and use them the best way they could.
He's like that. He's multi-talented, uses his talents well, makes good quality stuff and keeps on going and enjoying what he does.

Gackt rocks. He simply does.

I guess Gackt is somewhat mysteriious. I think he likes it that way...part of the persona. Long time ago read that he has very nice abode with swimming pool which he keeps in use with at least one naked lady in the water to make it look pretty.

Now that sounds pleasant and not at all like crazy to me.
