Paolo Serrano resurfaces

Remember Paolo Serrano? The ex-Viva Hotmen member, ex-amateur porn star and ex-accused con man is in the scene again.  This time, he’s in a new movie by DMV Entertainment, the same company that brought you Walang Kawala.  The title of the new flick is Heavenly Touch , which could very well be masseur-themed, under the direction of Joel Lamangan.  Paolo Serrano, who was last seen in the direct-to-video Versus, will be with Marco Morales and the Joash guy in the movie. 

Marx Topacio teases

Gorgeous and extra-large model Marx Topacio is back! The 25-year-old moreno guy who has made modeling his primary profession now, has been one of the most in-demand male mannequins on the runway, print and commercial ads. Marx has certainly gone a long way from his native Kawit, Cavite and San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite[where he played in the varsity basketball team, the Baycats]. In a magazine interview, Marx says he wants to be a model “to inspire” while earning his keep for his family.

Who ish Joash?

Joash (pronounced Jo-Ash) Balejado is a new discovery of DMV Entertainment who will be introduced in its second indie movie after the box office hit Walang Kawala Heavenly Touch (formerly Touch of Heaven). Joel Lamangan is directing this movie that also stars Paolo Serrano and Marco Morales. Joash, who is the winner of Lakan 2008, is a 19-year-old student of Business Management at the Rizal Technological University in Mandaluyong City. This is his first acting job after passing the audition for the role as a newbie masseur.

Cute: Jester Cristobal

Jester Cristobal looks big and tall in pictures, but this 22-year-old dancer and aspiring chef is only 5’6″-tall.  He is cute, though, and registers well with the camera.  Jester Cristobal used to be a member of the now-defunct Dyna Dancers [back when he was 16 years old] and the all-boys dance group called Break Zone, which has performed in some GMA-7 shows.  He also went to the World City Colleges in Caloocan City for a Hotel and Restaurant Management degree.

Just a question.

Hypothetical question: If you had Php 180,000.00 cash [roughly US$ 3,500.00 or Bahraini Dinar 1,300.00], would you engage the services of underwear model and actor Rafael Rosell? By services I meant doing the dirty deed. Say, for example, Rafael would consent to getting naked in your room, and he’ll just lie down in bed and be the fellatrant, all for 180 grand – would you pay that amount just to get him?   I’m just asking…

Mark Dave, call center boy

Twenty-something Mark Dave loves to describe himself as a character actor on television. He has done shows for GMA-7, such as the prime time fantasy series Majika and Captain Barbell. Most probably, he’s in the blink-or-you’ll-miss-him scenes, but Mark Dave has regular-albeit minor – projects with the tv station. Too, he does supporting roles in theater productions and tv commercials. When he is not busy with showbiz, this hunk from Las Pinas City works as a call center agent.

Jake Cuenca in the news

Bench Body’s favorite boy in briefs  Jake Cuenca figured recently in a drive-by shooting wherein his car was shot at while parked near his house on a busy street in Mandaluyong City. Good thing no one was hurt. Since he’s showbiz, the motive for the shooting has been fodder for gossip-mongers. Nonetheless, the young actor is keeping himself busy and shrugs off the rumors since he has no known enemies.  Jake Cuenca is perhaps one of the busiest actors on the ABS-CBN backlot.  Most probably because of his good looks, sexy demeanor, perseverance and sheer talent. Don’t you think so?  

Emel Rowe Rising

There’s a new kid soaring and surging in the modeling world and his name is John Emel Rowe. The 6’4″-tall Filipino-Australian [mom is from Cebu] has been featured as one of the 69 hot and new bachelors of 2008 by Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine. Actually, Emel Rowe was discovered while playing basketball for the University of San Carlos [USC] in Cebu City, where he’s taking up a management accountancy course. The baller-model is slowly getting noticed for major modeling projects not only in the Queen City of the South but also in Metro Manila.

Michael Hoo in Macau, Too

Another delish male model and bikini pageant veteran who’s making waves in the gambling capital of Asia is 25-year-old Michael “Mike” Hoo. A graduate of the Mapua Institute of Technology, the 6′-tall model is now an OFW in Macau with the Johnron, Jude Marco and a host of other handsome Filipinos. While in Manila, he joined underwear-and-speedo contests and did a very daring indie movie called Troika.
