Johnron Exclusive!

Johnron Tanada revealed that, despite his being with Viva Films for quite some time now, he just recently signed an exclusive contract with the artist management arm of the company. Which means, we can expect more Johnron appearances in Viva projects soon. In fact, he made a brief appearance in the Robin Padilla-Aiai delas Alas movie produced by Viva. And as for the Viva Digital movie he will be doing under the Jay Altarejos-Lex Bonife team [Parola, Antonio], the shoot starts today all the way up to Vigan City. Entitled Kambyo, this is a gay road trip movie, which will [again] show off Johnron’s jewels. Lex promised exclusive stills for the site, so there’s something to watch out for,guys. And, as for this photo shoot [images above], I will be posting Johnron photos soon sans the jeans.

Will gets nominated

Will Sandejas‘s career is on the upswing lately. Although the singer-actor failed to make the final cut [I think he was in the top 30] in Pinoy Idol, the Philippine version of the worldwide franchise of the reality singing competition, the moreno actor picked up a nomination at the Philippine Movie Press Club’s Star Awards for Movies. He is in the New Movie Actor of the Year category for his performance in Sikil. Other nominees from the movie include Romualdo Avellanosa [Digital Original Screenplay], Soon Lee Mi [Digital Movie Editor] and Ron Jancen Solis [Digital Movie Original Theme Song].

Weekend Scorcher: Rico Lazaro

Piolo doppelgänger Rico Lazaro is our weekend guy! Rico Lazaro just wrapped up an indie movie with a sexy theme, slated for showing in July and in the festivals abroad. Too, he is one of the models of designer Renee Salud in a fashion show next month. Of course, he is still the go-to guy for Mr. Pascual‘s needs for a body double, like in the recent Clear shampoo commercial campaign.

Will Sandejas reinvents self

Here’s a couple of did-you-know-thats: [1] Will Sandejas of Sikil fame is now a singer. Well, actually he is devoting more time to singing these days rather than acting. This is not that surprising since the 24-year-old actor used to be the lead singer of the now-defunct Replay band before he joined the movies via the bikini contest route. Recently, he was included in the Pinoy Idol semifinalist group,but unfortunately he did not make the cut for the top 24. Currently, he is doing gigs around the country. [2] Sikil, which just came from a successful Visayas showing, is now back at the Robinsons Galleria for another run. Those who were not able to catch the movie [approved without cuts by the MTRCB], can see it starting tomorrow till Tuesday.

Vintage Jake Cuenca

I just dug up these old photos of Jake Cuenca, Bench Body’s favorite boy in briefs. The first photo [white briefs] was taken backstage before the Bench Fever show at the Araneta Coliseum held two years ago. Back then, Jake looked like a little boy [with a stiffy!] lost amidst half-naked models. And he still had those abs. The second one was taken at the Be Bench finals night last year, where he just grabbed his crotch on stage, much to the delight of the crowd. Obviously, Jake had grown quite a bit.

First read on HMP: Johnron is lead in a new movie!

Johnron Tanada is making a comeback, for sure. He will soon be the lead actor in an upcoming movie by Roni Bertubin [of Sikil fame]. The movie, which will be shot somewhere south of the city is a light and sexy gay flick. Which means, we will soon get to see Johnron in the big screen in all his glory [I hope]. For now, I cannot divulge the details of the movie, as shooting starts next month, but Mr. Bertubin promised to give us first-hand info and photos soon. Something to look forward to, then.

First Read on HMP: Aga for Sun Cellular!

Aga Muhlach is done with the Globe and is now basking under the Sun! The 30-something actor, who has a new movie [with Boracay scenes] in the offing, just signed up to be the newest and biggest endorser of Sun Cellular, a mobile telecommunication service provider in direct competition with the top two networks – Smart Communications and Globe Telecom [which Aga Muhlach used to endorse]. Expect the TVCs and print ads coming out before month’s end.

Men in Shorts: Paolo and Piolo

I just finished my 10K run earlier at the “On Your Mark: Draw the Line Run-for-a-Cause”, a fun run sponsored by QTV for the benefit of the Women’s Crisis Center at the East Avenue Medical Center [I did below 45 minutes!]. With all the men in running shorts out there,I couldn’t help but get distracted. Tee-hee. And then again,I just thought I will put up photos of men in shorts this morning: Paolo Paraiso [top photos] and Piolo Pascual. Both PP’s were shot in candid moments while shooting as leading men for their respective projects – Paolo for the commercial dud Ate [Sister] and Piolo for the fantasy soap Lobo.
