Kubota Masataka

ch3_p

Kubota is consistantly the supporting actor that steals the spotlight and outshines the lead. And who only now is being recognized for his talents. His duo personality of boyish charms and badass masculinity, has won Masa diverse TV and film character roles from teenage hood to adult hood including a transgendered teen, a submissive sidekick, an out-of-depth teacher, the nice guy that doesn’t finish last, and several antagonist roles (including his most notable role as super-psychotic yankee Kuronaga Hayato from the Gachiban film series, which has seen Kubota star in ten films to date). As well as acting, Masa also was a former member of the j-pop hip-hop group ROM-4. And in 2013 returned to the music scene as a member of the band CRUDE PLAY (comprised of Miura Shohei, Kubota Masataka, Mizuta Kouki, and Asaka Kodai) formed for the movie The Liar and His Lover | Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru (2013).
