Janvier strikes a pose

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. 

Love Birds

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 and Kurap – Roni Bertubin [director] and Ome Avellanosa [screenplay].

Reading Sam Milby

Sam Milby 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.

Carlos Agassi returns

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. 

Zanjoe is busy

Zanjoe Marudo 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. 

Gerald Anderson in adult role

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.  

Echo to do Katy the Musical

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.

Victor Basa hones his craft

Victor Basa of the Coverboys is an actor quietly doing films outside his home studio backlot. Maling Akala was shown a few weeks ago sans fanfare. It is his first movie and he plays a gay role in most subdued nuance [I’m gushing because I loved the movie]. His first sci-fi movie, Xenoa 2: Clash of the Bloods recently hit movie theaters to favorable response from theatergoers.  So there, the glamor boy is now a movie actor seriously trying to perfect his craft.  

Old Pic

I found an old photo of Rico Barrera, who became relatively famous after his stay in the Big Brother house a few years ago.  His new photos came out recently to promote his indie movie Lalamunan, and I must say he’s quite different in those images [scroll down for the new pics]. I’m not so sure now but could there have been some surgery done on his beak or cheek? Or maybe just a personality shift – like those things that make people look good by heightening their confidence and demeanor and all?   I like the new look better, if you ask me.

Engaging Gabz

Gabriel “Gabz” del Rosario is the only guy in the last issue of Climax magazine who did not expose his penis  and testicles and those body parts where the sun doesn’t shine.  He was rather “conservative” when he merely showed his buttocks in one of the photographs.  Apparently, the shy Provoq guy can’t do it just yet, unlike his contemporaries in the daring magazine.  Gabz was last seen in the road trip gay movie called Kambyo last summer.
