Ryoma Takeuchi Cast in Japanese Dub of Detective Pikachu


Ryoma Takeuchi (竹内涼真) is known for his leading role as Shinnosuke Tomari/Kamen Rider Drive. It was recently announced that he will perform the Japanese dub voice of Tim Goodman in the upcoming live-action film, Detective Pikachu.

Takeuchi appeared on-stage with the leading stars, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, and Director Rob Letterman at Tokyo Comic Con to announce the news. Takeuchi surprised the crowd by introducing himself in English, but spoke in Japanese for the remainder of the event.

In a world where Pokémon co-exist with humans, Tim Goodman is searching for his father. He meets a Pikachu, who is a detective. While most people only hear the normal speaking voice of these creatures, Goodman can understand their speech.

Detective Pikachu will be released in May 2019.
