Born in 1976 in Ehime prefecture, Nakaizumi made his debut after auditioning (successfully) for a part in the film Scout Man (2001). The film won the prize for the best New Director at Director's Guild of Japanese Film and gained critical acclaim. He also appeared in several TV dramas in 2004. As a key character in Who's Camus Anyway? Nakaizumi lends a cool and attractive to the part. With more roles coming up in the future, 2005 promises to be an exciting year for him.
