New pictures, new projects for newcomer Jerber Mercado. Remember the 22-year-old mestizo from the island paradise Province of Bohol? Well, Manila’s been kind to this cute guy as he’s cast in a number of movies lately. Jerber’s playing lead in the independently-produced flicks Taksikab by Archie del Mundo and Sponsor by Eduardo Roy, Jr. and Mark Shandii Bacolod. Not bad for a new kid on the [indie] block. Jerber is managed by Imaginative Media Production.
