He’s the wild, wild boy in Philippine showbiz, which has seen him in his finest hour on tv drunk, distraught and demented. At least he’s straight-out about it, unlike some actors
. Yet, while the maniacal-when-muddled streak seemed to have attached to the 28-year-old actor, he has been getting a lot of projects of late. After winning the Best Actor trophy for the brilliant movie, Jay
at the Cinemalaya Film Festival, he was cast in the period movie Baler
[an entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival] and in the tv series Eva Fonda
on ABS-CBN. And so it seems Baron Geisler is one hell of a lucky guy after all.
Oh, oh, here’s another one – Jason Abalos
dons a bikini and poses by the pool! So, finally the young actor who recently won a Best Actor from a critics’ group for his sensitive performance in the movie Endo,
went sexy with the regulation swimming trunks. Remember he declared one time in a magazine interview
that he’ll go all-out sexy once his body is well-developed? I’m thinking, although the tall and lanky actor’s body is not yet “well-developed”, what the heck – it’s about time, really!
Commercial model Joseph Marco is our featured guy for today, and although he’s not in the regulation Speedos most common in photos here, he sure looks sexy and fresh in the images above [taken in Boracay Island last summer – during the Holy Week]. Twenty-year-old Joseph has German and Spanish blood from his mother’s side. He was discovered by an agent in a mall immediately after graduation from high school. The 5’9″-tall native of Binangonan has appeared in big commercials such as Coke, Head & Shoulders, E-Aji Dip Snax and Downy. Eventually, he was signed by GMA as an exclusive talent.
Remember Janvier Daily
? Yes, that
‘s the one with the nude photo
, which popped out a few months back in the worldwide web. Well, he’s now doing some modeling in between acting assignments on tv and the movies. He’s always seen in the go-sees for fashion shows and his efforts have paid off, as he was cast in big shows of late. Janvier Daily
was in the last Bench show at the Araneta Coliseum, if I’m not mistaken, and then the Cosmopolitan [Phils] Magazine’s annual Bachelors’ Bash. So it seems everything is doing fine after all for Mr. Daily.
This is the mark-your-gay-calendar post. On 4 December 2008
at the UP Film Institute
, the movie Love Birds
will have its premiere night. This is the movie where the Johnron
plays support to Joseph Izon
and an import – a Puerto Rican based in L.A. who goes by the name of Alexys Fernandez
[in photo with Mr. Izon
]. Of course, it’s a happy gay movie set mostly in bucolic San Pablo City in Laguna [The City of the Seven Lakes!]. Joseph Izon
‘s photos – naked and sinfully delish – for the promo of the movie, are now all over the web, but there’s more to see in the film from the makers of Sikil
– Roni Bertubin [director] and Ome Avellanosa [screenplay].
is a nice boy. And still very popular. He breaks up with his girlfriend and it is big showbiz news. The reason for the end of their relationship – according to Sam, is that he needs spiritual direction, that there are things they cannot do together. This is a novel way of explaining a breakup. And media will keep guessing and second-guessing about this conundrum no matter how personal this may be for Sam Milby. Just the same, there’s a new movie coming out on December 3 and he’s the lead – title’s Cul de Sac
, an action-thriller independently-produced.
Original ABS-CBN hunk Carlos Agassi is back on tv soon as one of the interesting characters on the hero-fantasy series Dragona: Ang Superhero na may Ibubuga. Tee-hee! [I’m not making the title up, and it is really funny and amusing]. The 28-year-old actor and failed rap artist is making a comeback in the series, after hieing off from showbiz for a long time. He revealed that he had to attend to their family business while tv and movie offers got scarce along the way. Now, as he celebrates his 29th birthday in December, Mr. Agassi “feels happy” to be working on cam again.
of the Coverboys
is very visible on ABS-CBN these days. That is because he has loads of projects in his home studio – the prime time series Dyosa
, concerts and tv shows with his strip-and-sing group Coverboys
, and upcoming soaps Florinda
and The Wedding
. Too, he just finished an independently-produced movie entitled Altar
for Cinema One Originals. Which means that good looks coupled with, uh
, talent and skills and determination make a successful male-model-turned-actor.
ABS-CBN’s heir apparent and resident cutie Gerald Anderson
gets his first acting break as an adult in a new prime time series called Tayong Dalawa
. He’ll pit good looks and serious acting skills with another studio favorite, Jake Cuenca
. For the series, Gerald had to shave [his face] to do the clean-cut look of an Air Force officer. The son of a Navy man in real life, Gerald says he draws inspiration for the role from his father.
Twenty-nine-year-old actor Jericho Rosales
is gradually regaining lost ground as he gets flooded with movie and tv projects. A couple of years ago, everything seemed lost for this leading-man actor as controversies and bad luck manifestly hounded him. Now, he’s on a roll. There’s a tv soap, a movie for the December film festival, some singing engagements, other tv projects and now as the male lead in the acclaimed Filipino musical Katy
. The musical is about the life of the “Queen of Vaudeville” Katy dela Cruz, and Jericho will play Pepe
, Katy’s one true love. Katy
will be staged right after the Metro Manila Film Festival Awards Night on 27 December at the Hotel Sofitel.
