Newest celebrity endorser of Bench, Dingdong Dantes
is busy bulking up for the Blackout show next week at the Araneta Coliseum. He is reportedly doing the grand opening number, and many are wondering now what he’ll wear for the show. Note that he was a bit modest during his launch earlier this year – shirtless and in jeans. Hopefully, Dingdong will drop the pants this time.
Oi! The Johnron has a new movie again. Apparently he did this one under the radar, as I’ve only come to learn about this when he sent me an SMS late last night. Ok mark the date: JULY 18 [Friday] at 6.15 pm. CCP Little Theater. The movie, part of Cinemalaya 2008, is entitled Lukaret and no, the Johnron won’t show his penis. Not even his scrotum. But we must all go and buy the P100 tickets and support him, right? See you there! [Those who will utter bad things against the Johnron will die of excruciating pain, penniless and lonely!].
Although he is no longer opening for the big Bench show on 25 July – Blackout
, perennial Bench-boy-in-briefs Rafael Rosell
is still in the two-hour skinfest. After his acting award in that lesbian movie, Rafael seems to be in high career spirits these days. He is busy with his tv shows in his home studio, U.S. concert tour [gasp!
] with his Coverboys
group, and a new movie with Jon Mullally
entitled Civil Status: Single
Every episode of a grand Bench underwear show is not complete without Wendell Ramos
mooning the audience. Well, something like that: Wendell Ramos loves wearing those nasty thongs or t-back underwear on stage. Not that we are complaining, but one of the nagging questions now would have to be – Is he showing his fat butt again in this year’s Blackout show of Bench at the Araneta Coliseum on 25 July?
Late post. I just finished my 10-mile run at the One La Salle Run with lots of eye candy. Never have I seen so many cute guys in one run. Ok, I’m digressing from my post today. Erstwhile teen idol Sherwin Ordonez
is coming out in his first movie [!] and first mature role on screen in the independent movie, Kurap
. From the Sikil
tandem of director Roni Bertubin and screenwriter Romualdo Avellanosa, Kurap
is the story of small-time crooks in innercity Manila and how their lives tragically spiral in a day. The movie will have its world premiere in the Asian and Arab competition section of the 10th Osian’s Film Festival in New Delhi
from July 12 to 20. And by the way, shirtless picture first of Sherwin, who did daring scenes in the movie. More revealing photos of cute Sherwin once the movie gets scheduled for showing in Manila.
Finally, after all these years lusting after this guy, model-turned-actor Paolo Paraiso
is baring all on screen in the movie Immoral
. The movie, which is directed by Adolfo Alix from the screenplay of Jerry Gracio [Santa Santita
], is part of the Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival 2008. It is the story of a man, his wife, and male lover all in one roof [hmmm, sounds familiar, I think this was the theme before in an Anton Bernardo
flick with a Paraiso
in the title]. Nevertheless, Paolo Paraiso promises, in this movie, to show a side we apparently have not yet seen before. I can’t wait.
is turning 26 next week [July 12] and I just thought I’ll put his new photo here. Wearing Bench underwear, of course. The dusky ex-baller is busy working on tv as a half-man, half-fish character in the primetime hit Dyesebel
. He will be seen next as one of the celebrity models of Bench in the much-hyped Blackout
Enough of the sleaze first. How about Jon Mullally
aka Jon Avila
for today? After signing up last year with Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s network-based talent agency, Jon seemed to have made a successful transition from the runway to the telly. As a chunky-hunky part of that all-boys sing-and-dance group called Coverboys,
Jon will soon fly to the U.S. for a concert tour [gasp!]. Too, he has his own superhero series on his home studio, Kapitan Boom
. Which only proves that talent and/or connections and/or perseverance make up for good showbiz success.
Lex Bonife of the Antonio
movies, sends the photo above and writes: From the makers of “Ang Lihim ni Antonio” and “Ang Lalake sa Parola” comes a heartwarming story about four gay men , their friendship and a road trip that will change their lives forever. Kambyo stars Kenjie Garcia [of Antonio], Rayan Dulay [Duda, Moreno, Bath House], Harold Macasero
[I think he is that guy from the 90s afternoon soap of GMA 7, Anna Karenina], and the Provoq guys Johnron Tanada and Gabz del Rosario. Screenplay is by Lex Bonife and Direction is by Jay Altarejos.
Lex says that he does not want to announce the schedule yet as they are not done with the editing. The target date for the premiere is June. So there! By the way, that’s Johnron Tanada
in the photo.
When 22-year-old cutesy actor Geoff Eigenmann
lost a lot of weight, he went about town proudly showing off his new body. Although it still does not have the perfect cuts and curves, Geoff now has a leaner and tighter bod. As one of the actors in ABS-CBN’s primetime series Lobo
, he immediately donned swimming trunks and jockeys for the key scenes. He says he lost weight the natural way – through boxing, that is. Geoff is also an endorser of Hanford underwear, replacing Dingdong Dantes
