If there’s anything that would intrigue anyone today, with regards to the showbiz industry, it’s the guessing game of who’s straight or not among local male celebrities. Well, we rarely hear of female artists in a gender-bending blind item but if there happens to be one I know for sure mot people couldn’t care less unless of course she’s a Primetime TV royalty. With break-ups, meet ups and gossips from here in there and homosexuality slowly being embraced as an accepted norm in the society, people just couldn’t help but wonder who will be the next to sing “Kung Kailangan Mo Ako“. LOL
Now, now, male celebs who portray gay characters in film and TV are less likely to be suspected. We have Coco Martin (who even had some intimate if not delicate scenes taken from his previous indie films), Martin Escudero (who even won a best actor awaaaard for portraying a gay character), Paolo Avelino and Rocco Nacino (in Ang Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa) and recently, Matt Evans in The Reunion. We also have Vice Ganda and John Lapus who will never be suspected as GAY! Hahaha. And yet again, we have Rocco Nacino playing a totally out of the closet gay character.
Enters indie film “I Luv U, Pare Ko!” starring Rocco Nacino paired with Rodjun Cruz in a comedy about a friendzoned gay-man who falls for his straight best friend. I Luv U, Pare Ko movie is directed by Neal Tan and produced by Krix Film Productions. The movie is also starring Arnel Ignacio, Marissa Sanchez and Bekimon. The film is tentatively schedule for a release on November 1, 2012.
