In 2005, Matsumoto took the most prominent role of his career to date when he was cast as Tsukasa Domyōji in the live-action adaptation of shōjo manga Hana Yori Dango.
Co-starring opposite Mao Inoue, Shun Oguri, Shota Matsuda and Tsuyoshi Abe, the series was a success with an average viewership rating of 19.6%.
He also starred in the film Tokyo Tower as a womanizer with a preference for older women with Junichi Okada the same year.
In 2007, Arashi starred in their third movie together Kiiroi Namida while Matsumoto was cast in the independent film Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru with Nana Eikura as his co-star.
He has an older sister whose support of Kin Ki Kids influenced his decision to join Johnny & Associates in 1996.
Thinking it might bode good luck, he sent his application to the agency on his elementary school graduation day and received a phone call weeks later from president Johnny Kitagawa himself, inviting him to attend a rehearsal instead of being auditioned.
He did not return to do any major stage productions for nearly seven years after Stand by Me, instead focusing on dramas and movies.
Hana Yori Dango Final, which hit the big screen on June 28, 2008 in Japan, became a box office hit.
but his breakthrough did not come until 2001 when he was cast as Hajime Kinda'ichi in the third season of Kinda'ichi Shōnen no Jikenbo, taking over the role from Tsuyoshi Domoto and co-starring opposite Anne Suzuki.
