“No more swimming, no more fun, no more lolling in the sun!” It’s back to school – from the grades to the university – today for millions of young persons in the Philippines. Which means, more pencils, more books and more teachers’ dirty looks. Photos above are of Gerald Madrid [now 26 years old] and Marcus Madrigal [also 26], resident twinkie fantasies in the late 90s and the early zeros. Both actors, who have taken contrasting career paths after appearing together in the 1999 films Burger Boys and Batang Pro, now play father roles on the telly.

What’s Allen Dizon doing now?

by: rddantes | 2 Comments |

Allen Dizon, the oldest member of the vanished Viva Hotmen [VHM] male group, is one resilient guy. Allen Dizon, who is now 29 years old [according to his bio], may be considered way past his prime, but he is still in the biz despite some setbacks in his clothes-free career. He first appeared as a scraggy contestant in Coverboy male personality search on Channel 2’s noontime show, SangLinggo nAPO Sila. Although he did not win the contest, he went on to appear in skin flicks, followed by a steamy stint with the VHM. Now that the VHM has disbanded, Allen Dizon has again taken a solo path in the movies [last appearance: Twilight Dancers, as an aging male prostitute] and teevee. Realizing that showbiz will pretty soon get too crowded for him, he has put up small business ventures in his native Plaridel, Bulacan, foremost of which is his Top of the Line Auto Sales and Insurance Agency.

Seven years ago, then 19-year old Arnold Cortez was one of the two top draws in the now-defunct Hercules Gay Bar along Aurora Bloulevard[better known as Tramo], Pasay City. Despite the decrepit conditions of the place and its environs, the bar was always packed due to to its bare-all shows and this bump-and-grinder, who always gave a mean strip show, right down to his angry boa constricted.

Baliw!

To me,the best-looking and hottest among the Eigenmann brothers, sons of noted Filipino actors, is Ryan Eigenmann. At the recent IndieSine, an independent cinema festival, held at Robinsons Galleria Mall, his latest movie Baliw [literally, deranged] was a big hit among indie film lovers and critics. Ryan was the lead in Baliw, as a messed-up orphan who grew up to be a serial killer. The movie was megged by a California-based Filipino, Redd Ochoa.

I Heart Marvin!

Actor Marvin Agustin‘s secret to his buff bod is South Beach Diet, regular exercise and boxing regimen. In the latest issue of Men’s Health Philippines, he revealed that the reason he worked out from chub to fab was because he felt he “never had the physical traits of an artista.” So he hit the gym to make his shoulders broader as he had a big head and a small frame. Unlike his mate Dominic Ochoa, who has gone old and porcine, Marvin Agustin [previously given up by his old tv studio as a has-been] is experiencing a second energy burst in his career, thanks to a great bod and positive determination.

Twenty-four year old Jayson Colis was touted as the hottest member of the Viva Hotmen [VHM], the erstwhile song-dance-strip group of hunks under film outfit and talent management company Viva Films.
