Jin Akanishi becomes Speed Racer

KAT-TUN’s Jin Akanishi is taking on his first role as a voice actor. He will lead the Japanese dub of the Wachowskis’ live-action “Speed Racer” movie, providing the voice of the protagonist Speed, played by Emile Hirsch.

Based on the anime series of the same name (an adaptation of the original “Mach GoGoGo” series in Japan), the movie opened in second place at the U.S. box office this past weekend, though it took in much less than producers had aimed for.

“Speed Racer” hits theaters in Japan on July 5.
