During rehearsals on August 23, Eitoku got injured during rehearsals for Tiger & Bunny The Live.  He will therefore no longer be able to do the suit work for Sky High--they'll get a replacement--but will still go on as Keith Goodman.  He says on Twitter that he'll be okay (1, 2) but I still worry.  ;_;

Update: Posters on Twitter and 2ch say it's just a sprain and he's all right.  It's good to hear!

Update 2: After a couple of days he went back to the doctor, who put a stop to further performances.  Get well soon!
Toei, the company that makes the popular Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series, has revealed the start of a new project, "Toei Hero Next," using the actors that have starred in those series.  PIECE ~Kioku no Kakera~ (directed by Ten Shimoyama) is the first film and features Shu Watanabe (20) and Ryosuke Miura (25) who starred in the popular Kamen Rider OOO.  From now on, the series will feature young actors who have graduated from Toei's tokusatsu series.
