[Movie] Ore Ore  
Ore Ore
Premieres 2013.05.25
http://ore-ore.jp/; Johnny's net

Kame has landed the leading role in the movie Ore Ore (It's Me, It's Me) whose release date is planned for next spring. He plays the main role, Nagano Hitoshi, who works in a consumer electronics volume seller. Kame's character picks up the phone of an unknown man and does an "oreore sagi". (Oreore sagi - "me me fraud"; literally. The fraud is the kind of telephone fraud.) Then the day after, a man (Daiki? not sure of kanji reading) with "ore" same face appears, then also another "ore" called Nao appears. Then day after day, the unknown "ore"s multiplies until, starting from an incident caused by Nao, the "deletion" of the many "ore"s starts, and an image with a killed ore is sent to the main character's place.
"The highlight is Kamenashi's cosplay. In order to show the world that will become "ORE", without minding age or gender, he'll cover 25 characters, from big breast to afro, tattooes all over the body, career woman, high school student."
(Translation: iside89. Thank you!)

Based on the book of the same name by Tomoyuki Hoshino. From his wiki (thanks, ina!):
"In 2011, Hoshino won the Kenzaburō Ōe Prize for his novel Ore Ore (2010), which explores the meaning of identity in the postmodern world. The title takes its name from the first-person Japanese pronoun ore (俺 'I' or 'me'?). Early in the novel, the narrator engages in a kind of scam known in Japan as a ore-ore sagi (俺俺詐欺 'me-me scam'?), in which he calls up an older person, pretends to be a relative, and tries to get the person on the other end of the phone line to send money. In the novel, the narrator finds himself unwittingly pulled into the life of the person whose identity he has fraudulently assumed, at the same time that someone else assumes his identity. This starts a chain-reaction of identity-stealing that extends to the edges of society, creating an increasingly surreal and dangerous world in which no one is exactly whom they seem."

Director/Scriptwriter Miki Satoshi's comments on Kame:
"My first impression of Kamenashi was that he has a very high ability to grasp the situation and atmosphere. His analysis of the script and ability to understand what is being expected from him; as well as his cleverness in being able to deliver to meet those expectations, he has all these capabilities."
"As the production process carries on, I am starting to think that there is no one else who can handle this incomprehensible role except Kamenashi"
