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].

Joseph Izon is lead !

In case you are wondering about the lead actor in Johnron‘s new movie, he is none other than Joseph Izon. Joseph is doing an adult role in the movie currently being shot in the City of Seven Lakes, with a Puerto Rican male actor as love interest. I’m now correcting the previous post about Joseph being support to our favorite Provoq guy.

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.

Johnron’s support

The actors who will provide support in JohnronTanada‘s new movie have been cast recently. Jeff Luna [orange trunks] and Joseph Izon will be in the new movie of the most-wanted Provoq man. Of course, there will be lots of skin in this sexy dramedy, which will be shot in a yet- undisclosed location somewhere south of Metro Manila.

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.

Rafael Rosell. Again.

Of course, he is in Bench’s ad campaigns. This summer, Rafael Rosell gets to be the more prominent model-in-briefs for the underwear brand, as his exposure for the Summer White Gold catalog of Bench spreads to a lot of pages. Rafael, who is still trying to work out his leading-man status on tv and the movies, seems to be the ultimate go-to guy of Bench underwear, as he is in his comfortable element in those one-size-under briefs.
