The other boys of WK

WK is of course the new gay movie from DMV Entertainment, Walang Kawala starring Polo Ravales and Joseph Bitangcol, plus the sexy guy in the previous post.  The movie – which is “a story of true love, rape and revenge,” will show lots of skin, of course, as a come-on for the intended audience.  One of the boys in WK is Dexter Castro, a Ginoong Pilipinas runner-up way back and a bikini contest vet. In WK, he is one of the dancers in support of the new tease in town, Marco Morales.  Dexter Castro was last seen in the video Erotika: M2M 2 [The Art of Striptease and Sensual Dancing].

Another boy in the background looks like that teen actor in GMA 7, who goes by the name of Aljur.  Cute and cuddly, this bit player – name unknown at the moment – is in the scene where Marco gets to do his mean striptease [I’m not so sure if the full frontal of Mr. Morales gets through the cutting-room floom].  Walang Kawala will be having its uncut premiere at the UP Film Institute on November 6. Regular screening in theaters around Metro Manila, Cebu and Bacolod start on November 12.

Loco over Marco!

I’m loving Marco Morales now.  Well, it helped that he did those bikinis and the sexy bit in the new movie Walang Kawala, which I’m definitely watching on its uncut preem at the UP Film Institute on November 6.  The actor-singer is starring with Polo Ravales, as seen in the photo above taking directions from director Joel Lamangan [hand shown].  Okay, mark this schedule guys:  Nov. 6 premiere at the UP Film Institute; Nov. 12 regular screening in theaters around Metro Manila, Cebu and Bacolod. Plus the special press screening on Oct. 28 at the plush MyCinema in Greenbelt 3.  

Cargean Racho rising!

Here’s another Racho, who hopes to make his mark in bikini-dom come. Nineteen-year-old Cargean Racho is one of the contestants in this year’s Mr. & Ms. Expo World Philippines. Prior to the contest, Cargean Racho was proclaimed as Mr. Polytechnic University of the Philippines [PUP] 2008, a personality contest among the PUP campuses. He represented PUP-Sta. Rosa in Laguna, where he is taking up BS Entrepreneurial Management. Catch Cargean and the other guys at the Mr. & Ms. Expo World Philippines contest on October 6 at the Metro Bar along West Ave., Q.C.

Jon or Brent?

Fill in the blanks time: My choice for a dream do-all-you-can date in Boracay would be [a] Jon Mullally, or [b] Brent Javier . You can only choose one hunk. Will it be Mr. Mullally a.k.a. Jon Avila, the shy English guy who is getting some good and big breaks in his home studio? Or Brent Javier, Mississauga born and raised, and another bashful cutie who is inching his way up the showbiz ladder [although he got in way ahead of Jon]. Both are Bench underwear models, who started out in the business as fledgling male mannequins from other countries. Now in their late 20s, the guys are seriously moving into acting on tv and the movies.

Patrick Perlas sparkles

This tall male model by the name of Patrick Perlas might just wing it at the Mr. & Ms. Expo World Philippines pageant.  Pre-pageant judges are taking note of his confidence, bearing, built and eloquence.  Patrick Perlas is one of the tallest and brawniest candidates in this year’s contest.  Pageant night will be next Monday, October 6 at the Metro Bar along West Ave., Quezon City.

Will strip for fame 2

Will Sandejas of Sikil and Climax magazine, will be in a show called Indie Boys: X-Posed on 3 October [9.30 p.m. Friday] at the Mankind Entertainment Bar on Sct. Ybardolaza St. cor. Timog Ave., Q.C. [in front of President Tower]. It’s a double treat because he will be seen with The Talented Mr. King.  So guys, it’s your chance to see them live on Friday, plus the chance to talk to them and get their numbers. Tee-hee.  [Call 0923.649.1784, 0920.402.6233 or 467.4088 for more details].

Going and going!

Although the careers of Jericho Rosales [left] and Dennis Trillo were stalled somewhere along the way, the two actors are slowly picking up the pieces and re-tracing their respective paths back to success. I’m pretty sure they’ll be on top sooner or later, as the two actors – belonging to rival stations, have great acting sensibilities and talents [they can also sing!]. Jericho Rosales now has a primetime series on ABS-CBN, while Dennis Trillo will soon wear a Spiderman-like suit for his new fantasy series on GMA 7.

Matt Evans makes it!

Matthew Nicolas Evans better known as Matt Evans in showbiz ranked 12th in StarStudio magazine’s “most sizzling boys under 23.”  The 19-year-old Big Brother alum [he is turning 20 on 22 October] has been making the big leap too – from light juvenile roles to more mature and fancy-free portrayals on tv.  And he is getting noticed!  In due time – and I’m predicting this – the Filipino-American actor will soon be one of those talents who will take over the reins with leading-men status in ABS-CBN.

Vic y Aki

Nipo-brasileiro [or Brapanese here in conjunction-junkie Manila] model  Akihiro Sato  is the newest endorser of Bench Body rival, Penshoppe Undercover.  The 24-year-old,  6’1″-tall model, who is taking the Philippine fashion capital by storm, was immediately and readily signed up by the clothing brand before anyone else did.  Of course, long-time and current clothes endorser Victor Basa gets to play nice and second fiddle to the Brazilian in the underwear campaign.

Piolo latest

Piolo Pascual is still the prized model of clothing brand Bench, after all.  The 31-year-old actor recently came out with his own line of apparel and perfume for the local brand [read: designed by Mr. Pascual himself].  Now, that is quite unprecedented in Bench’s history of celebrity endorsers.  Too, Mr. Pascual will have a series of shows in Europe next month with perennial [singing] partner Sam Milby.  That is, of course, if he finishes early his new movie shot in Bukidnon, the highland paradise in Mindanao.
