from sssip 🙂 “IF ANGELI BAYANI COULD DO IT, WHY CAN’T THESE ACTORS DO SO ALSO? RIGHT?”
1.) LANCE RAYMUNDO- His looks change. Versatile, trendy. Stylish actor. He was first noticed internationally in the 2011 film Fidel. Sooner, his other indie films got noticed, too, internationally. And now, in his latest international film A Thief, A Kid & A Killer, he will surely prove he deserves to be on the number one position of this list.
2.) JERICHO ROSALES- The greatest edge of Jericho over his fellow “Star Magic” is the fact that among the rest of Channel 2 actors, he’s the only one who already won a Best Actor award (via the movie Alagwa, directed by Ian Lorenos) in an international film festival. And he’s the only one, too, who can mix a matinee-idol-kind-of-appeal with serious acting.
3.) ALLEN DIZON- His socially-relevant films (the likes of Dukot, Lauriana, etc.) have already traveled all over the globe. He’s in deep character in every movies he makes that always lands in many international film festivals. Just one more great international film project, and he’s headed to Hollywood.
4.) LEON MIGUEL- He was greatly noticed in the international film- Graceland, together with fellow Filipino actor Arnold Reyes. He is in great character always- but not the protagonist type, though. But a character one.
5.) MON CONFIADO- Many of Mon’s independent films (the so-called indie films) have landed internationally. But it seems, in his latest film Gemini, Mon is out to finally get the “awe” of the Hollywood international market.
6.) ARNOLD REYES- Just like Mon and Lance, this handsome actor can change his looks to every time he is “in character”. it’s a Hollywood-style and attack of an actor. He must continue aspiring to reach the international scene.
7.) SAM MILBY- He almost made it in Hollywood, didn’t he? He got a Hollywood talent agent, too. But he chose to come back to the Philippines and continue making commercially-oriented Star Cinema films. A clear case of “heart winning over the mind”.
8.) JOHN ARCILLA- Surely, his film credits shows that he’s truly “Hollywood-ish”. He’s among the cast of Hollywood films like Bourne Legacy and Metro Manila, to name a couple. His very Pinoy looks could kill, that’s why Hollywood film artists love him.
9.) JM DE GUZMAN & CARLO CRUZ- Both JM & Carlo haven’t landed in any international films yet. But we may say, soon, they’re both bound for HOLLYWOOD. Based alone on their good & kind characters as persons and intensity as great actors.
10.) ROCCO NACINO- What is Channel 7 doing now with the career of Mr. Rocco Nacino??? Oh, no. After he did so well in the film Pedro Calungsod: Batang Martir, it seems channel 7 people doesn’t know what to do next. Gosh! Mr. Nacino must be build-up more as a serious actor, rather than a TV host or a caricature leading man of young actresses. Please!!! Give him a break, will you? He’s Hollywood-bound!!!
