Why Meisa Kuroki was offered Erika Sawajiri’s role!?

With everything that’s happened with Erika Sawajiri being dismissed, and Meisa Kuroki taking the role of “Yuki Mori” in Space Battleship Yamato; what are the reasons?

Well other than the obvious, [people] are saying that Kuroki fits the role of ‘Yuki Mori’ than Erika. Another reason is that there is speculation with her connection to Johnnys’ talents. She is good friends with Rina Uchiyama and Maki Horikita, who are also good friends with Johnny’s talents. But another reason is the rumor of Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN) and Kuroki; they were rumored to be involved. So it’s like Johnny’s was quick to approve of Kuroki taking over the role.

Johnny’s loves Kuroki, its like both of the agencies are on a honeymoon,” said one of the authorized media rep.

Kuroki has appeared in several dramas with Johnnys’ talents. In 2007 she starred in the New Year historical play “Byakkotai“, with Tomohisa Yamashita and Koki Tanaka. That same year she appeared with Kazunari Ninomiya, playing the part of his girlfriend in the drama, “Dear, Father.” Other Johnnys’ talents include Koichi Domoto, Kazuya Kamenashi, and Toma Ikuta.

This type of casting seems to be a formula for success.

Kuroki’s agency is Sweet Power. Both Sweet Power and Johnny’s Entertainment have a very good relationship, which explains why both their talents work together, and are sometimes to be rumored to be in a relationship. Kuroki and Tanaka, and Rina Uchiyama and Noriyuki Higashiyama. Maki Horikita with Yamapi, Ikuta and Kamenashi; all rumors have spurred from constantly working together.

With Erika out of the running, it seems that playing in Johnny’s favor has gotten her the role. In these past two years Kuroki’s been starring in drama’s with Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (SMAP), Kazuya Kamenashi (KAT-TUN), Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi), Yuu Yokoyama (Kanjani8), Yamapi (NEWS), and Koki Tanaka (KAT-TUN). And now with SMAP’s Takuya Kimura.
