Erika Sawajiri: Movie rumors..Fashion show comeback

10 May


Erika is getting flooded with movie offers?
The “Tokyo Sports” reports that Sawajiri Erika is getting flooded with movie offers. Starting from a new “Gokudo no Onna-tachi” movie series to taking over Fukada Kyoko’s role as Doronjo in the upcoming sequel “Yatterman 2”, it’s going to be a difficult and important choice for her.

“Sawajiri also wishes to start singing again and it’s basically a done deal that she will release a new album within this year,” a music industry official revealed.

However, there are two pillars in her career, music AND acting. There is a lot of buzz around her and her acting skills aren’t that bad either, so it’s said that she is receiving a lot of love calls for several big productions.

One of those would be “Gokudo”, a very popular movie series with actresses like Iwashima Tashima and Takashima Reiko in the starring roles. There hasn’t been a new movie since 2005 and the staff plans to restart the series with Sawajiri in the starring role. The production team of “Yatterman” also have their eyes on her. They plan to get her for the role of Doronjo, of course. Both offers would have her playing some kind of wicked woman, so it sounds like the perfect choice for her.

“Last year in March Yatterman became a huge hit with a box office revenue of over 40 million USD. Immediately after the release there have been talks about a possible sequel. Sawajiri seems to be on the top of the list for the candidates that would be perfect for the role of Doronjo, the sexy role responsible for its success,” people in the movie industry whispered to the reporters.

Fukada Kyoko
was amazing in Yatterman alongside starring actor Sakurai Sho (Arashi) with her sexy high-leg leotard leather outfit. It’s obvious that would they need someone for the sequel who could leave a similar or even bigger impact than Fukakyon and who would be better than Sawajiri?

Millie’s Comments:  Basically, I also think she has some acting skills…Definitely better than her singing skills. I’ll, however, listen to her songs and watch her movies and dramas. Call me perverse….

Sawajiri Erika Confirms Divorce Rumors…

28 Apr


Actress Sawajiri Erika (24) has made her first formal statement regarding the recent rumors of her impending divorce. On her official website yesterday she wrote, “I wish to formally state that I, Sawajiri Erika, have determined to divorce my husband, Takashiro Tsuyoshi (45), and we are in talks under the auspices of my family.”

The member of her family is believed to be her elder brother, a former actor who now runs a restaurant in Tokyo. The Sankei Sports newspaper reports that a source close to the actress told them that she talked about divorce with her former management agency at least three times before she was dumped by them last September.

Last month it was reported that she had set up a personal management company in Spain, but it now seems that was more to do with Takashiro’s plans to base himself outside Japan. Sawajiri says that she has been taking vocal lessons and that after the divorce she will resume her acting and singing careers full-time under the Avex entertainment company.

For his part, Takashiro told Sankei Sports he does not want a divorce and has been trying unsuccessfully to meet and talk with his wife. There have been reports of his having debts and other financial problems

The couple first met in 2000, but it wasn’t until they met again five years later that they started a relationship. They married on New Year’s Day of 2006, after about half a year of dating.
