Mike Tan does theater

Mike Tan is doing theater next year. This was confirmed recently by reports that the young actor will be in a production of the theater group Tanghalang Pilipino entitled  Kutsilyo, Pamaypay at Yantok . It will be the first time that Mike Tan will be doing a professional appearance in a live acting performance.  Since this will be held at the Tanghalang Huseng Batute at the Cultural Center of the Philippines [13-15 January 2009], expect to see the handsome member of The Studs up close and very personal.

Merry Christmas!

Top leading man Piolo Pascual has a new movie next year entitled Love Me Again [Land Down Under] , and I’m one of the countless people who are fiercely waiting for its showing on January 15.  The movie had its premiere in L.A. and Redwood City in CA recently, and pretty soon – after the Christmas film festival – here in local shores.  Aside from the wonderful scenes of Bukidnon and Darwin,  and Piolo shirtless on a horse, the movie promises to be an engaging rich-guy-poor-gal love story. Merry Christmas everyone! 

Lance Onate, singing star

The last time I saw singer-dancer Lance Onate was during Holy Week in Boracay Island. He was with his good friend, the male model Mark Manicad. He was tan, trim and, uh, titillating.  I heard he’s a big star now – as part of the four-boy song-and-dance act BoyzFrenz, which is “making a big splash in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.”  Recently, he came back for a vacation and now he’s on an Asian concert tour with the popular group.  I bet he’s the sexiest guy in that pack. And what can I say – way to go, Lance!


I just found these photos in my files and I thought I’d put them together, side by side. I’m not going to ask who’s hotter or yummier or sexier because they are both adorable. And, besides, there’s no real comparison, really –  Gerald Anderson [left] is only 19 years old and relatively new in showbiz while Richard Gutierrez, who’s turning 25 early next year, has been in the business since he was a fat little kid.  They are both popular, from warring networks but local brand Bench got them together as models and of course, coaxed into going shirtless in its shows and campaigns. And, who knows, they might just do the bikini briefs for the Bench ads soon.

Paolo Cruz charms

It’s the eve of Christmas Eve! Here’s hoping that all greeting cards have all been sent because the Christmas rush is through.  But if you still have one more wish to make, well… what could it be?  Our boy for today is Paolo Cruz, who is appropriately stripped for the occasion.  He is a part-time model, having been once a member of the Cinderella store’s group of teen models.  Twenty-three year-old Paolo Cruz stands 5’9″ and is a native of Marinduque.

Robert Declaro bedazzles

If you have been shopping in the Greenbelt Mall area lately, chances are you would have spotted some male models dressed as the Queen’s guards with faux bearskin hats, giving away handbills for Citibank. One of them is 5’11”-tall model Robert Declaro, last seen as one of the contestants in Body Shots 2008.  He was also one of the featured bachelors for the 2007 edition of Cosmopolitan [Phils.] magazine’s annual list of 69 hot boys and men.  Robert Declaro, who is now 24 years old, went to the San Pablo Colleges in San Pablo City, Laguna.

Rafael Rosell wants to soar

Because he is nice and sexy and handsome, my Christmas wish for Bench underwear model, boyband dancer-teaser and occasional award-winning actor Rafael Rosell is more success in his career. Which means he should be in leading-man status by next year and less appearances with that group that sings and struts shirtless. I’m pretty sure RafaelRosell, who has the talent, charm and the pleasant appearance [plus he can drop his pants and underpants in a snap], can wing it!

Aki again and again.

How do you measure Aki? I hope you won’t mind if I keep on posting his photos here over and over again. It’s just that Akihiro Sato is biiiig! And addicting! How can you not like such a face and body! Plus, the stories that stylists and make-up artists and hairdressers tell about the man – that he is all sugar and spice and everything nice. Okay, now I’m gushing again. I heard he went to France for a four-month job, but he’ll definitely come back for his other commitments here.

Cedric drops by

Our favorite boy Cedric Javier is dressed for the season, too! The 6′-tall star of the straight-to-video movies Pinoy Kama Sutra and Coed Scandal has been fodder in this site lately for some prattle about moneys and funds and services. And I’m sure this is way too off-color to pass up. Now, what’s this story again about Mr. Libunao‘s modeling agency?

In Vivo.

Reader Barbarella again sends in the photo above and asks – How old is ex-reality show contestant and now-bit player Vivo Ouano? He’s 18 years old now, if you count the years that passed by ever since he joined GMA-7’s Starstruck as a tall and gangly [and cute!] student who listed his age at 15. But some say he is really 23 years old now. No matter what, he sure does appear cuter and sexier in the image above. I’m hoping – and I’m pretty sure you’ll join me in this one – that he’ll do one of those photo shoots similar to what his friend Mike Tan did for the 2008 X-Ray calendar. Maybe next year?
