Empoy naghihintay pa sa sosyotain!
YSTAR - Baby E (Pang-masa) - October 21, 2017 - 4:00pm

Bukod sa pagiging accomplished come­dian, isa sa maitutu­ring ni Empoy Marquez na biggest achievement, so far, ay ang mapagtapos ang anim na nakababatang kapatid sa college.

“Titulado silang la­hat,” Empoy reiterated with pride. “Ang makatapos ng college ang dream ko for myself, na di ko naman natupad, dahil kinailangan kong magtrabaho ng maaga, ay na-accomplish naman ng mga kapatid ko.”

It was not an easy climb to success for Empoy. Tatlong beses siyang sumali sa pa-contest noon ng Magandang Tanghali Bayan (MTB) na Mr. Suave. Well, tatlong ulit din siyang hindi pumasa.

Ganunpaman, ‘di raw siya nawalan ng pag-asa. Lalo pa nga at inspired siya sa mga sinasabi ng kanyang mga kaibigan na mga kababata niya sa Baliuag. Sila rin daw ang nag-suggest na ibahin niya ang kanyang pananamit at hitsura. Maglagay daw siya ng sideburn at kapalan niya ang kanyang bigote.

No need to tell you that he won. Henceforth, there was no stopping him. Ginawang pelikula ang Mr. Suave kung saan nakasama niya si Vhong Na­varro bilang bida samantalang gumanap naman siyang sidekick nito.

Kwento pa ni Empoy, si Piolo Pascual raw talaga ang nag-insist na siya ang gumanap na leading man ni Alessandra de Rossi sa pelikulang Kita Kita (considered to date the highest grossing independent film). Nagkatrabaho na raw sila sa Bora. At ayon kay Piolo sa isang interview, he knew Empoy would make it as a comedian, kung mabibigyan lang ito ng right role at the right vehicle.

Spring Films, which produced Kita Kita, is owned by Piolo, Direk Joyce Bernal at talent ma­nager Erick Raymundo.

Kita Kita only had a budget of P10M. And so far, it was grossed a more than P400M to this date.

“The new pogi” ang bagong label na ibinigay kay Empoy dahil siya na raw ngayon ang tunay na kabuuan ng bagong guwapo. And Empoy’s immediate reaction, who is he to complain?

Complain ng naman, he has no right to entertain. As he himself admits, ang bait sa kanya ng Diyos.

Well, kapipirma lang niya two year-four picture contract with Star Cinema. Malapit na ring ipalabas ang kanyang pelikulang The Barker, kung saan niya makakasama si Shy Carlos and which, likewise, marks the directorial debut for a movie of fellow comedian, Dennis Padilla.

May isa pa siyang unreleased movie na ang producer naman ay ang singer na si Claire dela Fuente.

Nagsimula na rin siyang mag-taping sa series for Dreamscape Television Entertainment, kung saan niya makakasama sina Piolo Pascual at Alessandra, among others. Antoinette Jadaone has been tapped to direct it.

Well, kumusta naman ang kanyang lovelife?

“Well,” maliksing sagot ni Empoy. “One of these days, makikita ko rin siya. But as of the moment, love can wait.”

Matteo mapapahamak kay Kim

Sa kanyang role raw bilang leading man ni Kim Chiu, Matteo Guidicelli somehow realized his dream to do a role, which will not just challenge him but will thrill him as well. Tulad ng thrill  na gugustuhin niyang madama rin ng manonood.

May bonus pa, ayon kay Matteo ang kanyang role, dahil mapapanood siya sa ilang malalalang horrifying experiences, nang madiskubre niya na ang kanyang babaeng mahal ay isa pa lang professional Ghost Bride.

Sa mga Chinese, a ghost bride is one who agrees na magpakasal sa isang Tsinong patay na for a fee.

Isang malaking honor din daw para kay Matteo ang makatrabaho ang magaling at award-winning direktor na si Chito Roño.
