Zanjoe copied Bea's pouty lips in 'Bromance'
AYON kay Zanjoe Marudo, medyo nahirapan din siya sa pagganap bilang bading sa Bromance: My Brother’s Romance, first solo film niya under Skylight Films.
Dalawang klaseng bading kasi ang ginagampanan niya as Brandy at bukod dito, dual role rin siya dahil sa kuwento, kambal sila na isang bading at isang lalaki.
Nang mamatay ang kakambal na bading ni Brando ay napilitan siyang magpanggap bilang si Brandy at dito makikita ang husay ni Zanjoe dahil magkaiba ang pagganap niya sa dalawang bading.
Siyempre, bilang nagpapanggap siyang si Brandy, medyo OA ang pagkabading niya whereas ’yung totoong bading na namatay na siya rin ang gumanap ay may pagka-finesse at natural na natural ang kilos.
Naipakita niya talaga ito nang buong ningning kaya naman bibilib ka talaga sa kanya at maging ang direktor na si Wenn Deramas ay humanga rin sa husay ni Z.
Sa presscon last Sunday ay natanong ang aktor kung ano ang feeling na finally ay may solo movie na siya na siya talaga ang bida and not just another leading man ng isang female star.
“Medyo nakaka-tense rin, kasi nga hindi naman ako sanay talaga na ako ang bida sa isang project. Siyempre, natutuwa ako. Gusto kong maging humble, pero ang damdamin ko, nagsusumigaw na maging confident dahil alam naming magandang pelikula ito,” he said.
Asked kung sino ang peg niya sa kanyang role as Brandy sa movie, aniya, wala siyang ginaya dahil gusto niya ay sarili niya talaga pero parang si Direk Don Cuaresma raw.
Eh, kanino naman niya natutunan ang pag-pout ng lips niya?
“Ah, kay Bea (Alonzo, her girlfriend),” say niya.
Itinuro ba ito sa kanya ni Bea?
“Actually, hindi. Dati pa lang, lagi kong ginagaya ’yun, kasi nga hindi naman usual na ginagawa ng tao ’yung naka-pout ang labi. Pero pagdating sa mga cover sa magazine, sa mga picture, lagi silang naka-ganu’n. So, minsan, inaasar ko siya, ginagaya ko ’yung mga picture niya,” kuwento ng aktor.
Ano naman sa tingin niya ang magiging reaksyon ng girlfriend kapag napanood ang pelikula.
“Magiging proud siya sa akin. Kasi ngayon pa lang, grabe na niyang ipinapakita kung gaano siya kasaya na trailer pa lang ang napapanood niya.
“Masarap ang pakiramdam na ’yung taong mahal mo, proud sa ginagawa mo kahit na ’yung ibang tao, iniisip, ‘hindi kaya ikakahiya siya ng girlfriend niya o ng kapatid niya.’ Ang sarap ng ganu’ng pakiramdam, lahat ng taong inaasahan ko ay sumusuporta, mga kaibigan ko, pamilya ko,” say ni Z.
Bukod kay Zanjoe ay kasama rin sa movie si Cristine Reyes bilang leading lady niya, Nikki Valdez, Maricar de Mesa, Carlo Romero, Arlene Muhlach at marami pang iba.
The movie is showing on May 16.

SI Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III ang pang-sampung senatoriable na ini-endorse ni Mother Lily Monteverde at ipina-presscon kahapon sa Imperial Palace Suites.
Ayon sa Regal matriarch, bilib siya sa humility and diligence ng senador.
“It’s very rare to see a silent worker like Koko,” say ni Mother. “The celebrity status you get as a politician can get to your head. Parang sa showbiz. Pero iba si Senator Koko. He does his job and he doesn’t brag about it. Isang maprinsipyong tao, nagsisilbi para sa ating lahat.”
Bukod kay Mother Lily, nakuha rin ni Sen. Koko ang tiwala ni Kris Aquino na isa rin sa nag-i-endorse sa kanya kaya naman ganu’n na lang ang pasasalamat ng reelectionist senator.
February pa nga raw siya sinabihan ni Kris na ie-endorse siya at hindi pa nga lang daw sila nagkikita para sa pictorial at hinahanapan pa raw ng oras.
Aminado si Senator Koko na plus factor ang endorsement ng TV host-actress.
’Yun nga lang, unfortunately, hindi lahat ng nasa Team PNoy ay kasama sa listahan ng ini-endorse ni Kris.
Ano ang masasabi niya tungkol dito?
“Well, personal decision na po ’yan ni Ms. Kris Aquino. But siyempre, I urge the other Team PNoy candidates to also approach her. Siyempre, dahil sister naman siya ng Pangulo, ’di i-approach din nila,” he said.
Si Sen. Koko ay tumatakbo for his second term in the Senate.

'Vice Ganda is a decent gay'
ASKED how his girlfriend Bea Alonzo reacted to his decision to play a gay role in his first lead movie, Bromance, Zanjoe Marudo said she was happy for him.
“Tawa pa nga siya nang tawa nang mapanood niya ang teaser ng pelikula” ani Zanjoe. “’Di man niya in-articulate, alam kong she is proud of everything that’s happening to me and my career.”
Zanjoe denied having consulted Bea first before accepting the role. Where their careers are concerned, wala raw silang pakialaman.
As he explained: “More than anybody, after all, ikaw na may katawan ang makakaalam what’s good for you, personally and professionally.
“In Bea’s case, nauna siyang nag-artista sa akin. Kaya, between the two of us, lamang siya ng kaalaman tungkol sa showbiz. I take to her as one of the best actresses we have around,” pahayag pa ni Zanjoe.
* * *
ON the question who sort of served as his inspiration for the gay role of Brandy, Zanjoe’s quick reply was: “Vice Ganda.” (Sey ni Vinia Vivar, si Direk Don Cuaresma ang isang inspiration ni Zanjoe. – IFF)
“Kasi,” paliwanag niya, “disenteng bakla si Vice. Eh, dito sa Bromance, tinitingala si Brandy bilang gay interior designer.
“But what I admire about Brandy’s character is that makapamilya siya. Dahil between him and his kakambal, Brando, mas malaki ang kanyang kinikita, he takes it upon himself to help support the family.
“As Brando kasi, ’di ito umangat-angat sa hanapbuhay niya bilang talyer operator,” patuloy pa ni Zanjoe.
What he would consider the highlight of Bromance, according to Zanjoe, was when kinailangan niyang magpanggap na si Brandy, whom, as Brandon, he hated at ikinahiya dahil nga sa pagiging bakla nito.
As Brandon, nanghinayang siya sa multi-million-peso contract na na-close ni Brandy bago ito naaksidente at na-comatose.
“The film is a riot,” ani Zanjoe. “Basta both Direk Wenn (Deramas, who directs the movie) and I made sure that audiences will not just enjoy watching it, but will be in stitches, too.”
* * *
A TRUE gay featured in Bromance is Lassy Marquez, who always makes himself available everytime Zanjoe needs help in performing his role as a beki (the new gay lingo for bakla).
The eldest in a family of four, he was in grade six when he admitted he was gay. Aniya, he feels grateful to his mom, who not only understood but also tinanggap ang kanyang kasarian.
Before joining showbiz, Lassy performed in gay bars.
For a time rin, naging jester siya ng Wowowee, Willie Revillame’s former show on ABS-CBN.
Sa pagiging gay bar performer niya, nakatulong daw si Lassy sa kanyang pamilya.
“Sa tip na tip lang ng audience, kapag nagustuhan nila ang performance mo, kahit paano, kikita ka na.
On how he acquired the name Lassy, he explained: “Ang manager ng gay bar na aking unang pinagtrabahuhan ang nagbinyag sa akin ng nabanggit na pangalan.
“Kasi nga raw, I perform like a dog on stage.”
Where his movie and TV career is concerned, Lassy is grateful to Direk Wenn, who makes it a point to include him in most of his projects.

ABS-CBN Rules Nationwide TV Ratings in April; Remain Strong in Morning and Afternoon Block
Posted on May 6, 2013
ABS-CBN, the country’s largest and leading multimedia conglomerate, continued to dominate TV viewing across urban and rural homes nationwide in April with its strong line-up of shows with an average total day audience share of 42% or 12 points higher than GMA’s 30%, based on data from Kantar Media.
Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes that represent 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population, while the other ratings data supplier AGB Nielsen reportedly has only 1,980 homes based solely in urban areas that represent only 57% of the Philippine TV viewing population.
ABS-CBN also ruled the hotly contested primetime block (6PM-12MN), with an average national audience share of 46% vs. GMA’s 29%. Primetime is considered the most important part of the day when most Filipinos watch TV and advertisers put a larger chunk of their investment in to reach more consumers efficiently.
Aside from primetime, ABS-CBN’s early afternoon block (12NN-3PM) also strengthened with an average audience share of 41%, a three-point increase from last March’s 38%, while GMA lost a point to 32% from 33%. This was mainly driven by the performance on weekdays by “It’s Showtime,” which gained a national TV rating of 13.7%, beating “Eat Bulaga” (12.4%).
ABS-CBN also remained strong in the morning (6AM-12NN) with an audience share of 37% vs. GMA’s 32%, and in the late afternoon (3PM-6PM) with 36% vs. GMA’s 29%.
Twelve out of the top 15 regular airing programs for April were produced by ABS-CBN. (click here to see the list of the Top 15 Programs nationwide for April).
