Break for Sexy Actors

Marco Morales while taking a break during
the shoot of "Laruang Lalake"
The common notion that baring in a gay movie is a desperate attempt and is the sign of career suicide for actors has been proven wrong by three solid cases.

First is Coco Martin (Masahista) who is now the poster boy of "I-can-make-it-big-in-mainstream-entertainment-even-if-i-started-in-a-gay-film", his lead roles in ABS-CBN and his slew of endorsements and EDSA billboards is a testament that talent will bring you places. (God bless ABS for a wonderful packaging of Coco Martin!).

Second, is Tyron Perez (Twilight Dancers, Pipo), who now has a lead role again in ABS-CBN.

Following suit is GMA, who signed in "frontal nudity king" Marco Morales (Heavenly Touch, Pipo) under their stable of stars and now has a significant role in "Langit sa Piling Mo". Marco's latest gay film is "Laruang Lalake" under Lexuality Entertainment.

Thank you TV Giants for bringing the bread for these talented actors.

hello naman Lex, si Coco nagkacareer kasi naging jowa ni Deo. Taga showbiz ka kaya I'm sure alam mo yan, tigilan na ang kechenesan. Tyron Perez? you call his role sa Momay a successful career in showbiz? hindi matatawag na success ang pasupport support lang dahil hindi sila nakakapagdala ng show. Same goes with Marco Morales. enough said.

totally agree.. ang i wish na sana they would also give PAOLO SERRANO a big break after his appearances in "kung tayo's magkakalayo" as a policeman.. i'm just so inlove with him.. me0w..

some people are just too stupid, too jaded to accept that talented individuals can definitely go a long way..justify & prove your accusations first before writing comments of defamation about these actors..

Whatever, Lex.

i hate the notion that actors are only legitimized once they land a role in network television. we the audience are giving abs-cbn and gma too much undeserved power.

truth is, tyrone perez was a finalist in gma 7's starstruck, then neglected by that network, then proved himself by acting in independent films that championed him. it's a typical story.

i'm happy coco martin et al are now making money off these networks and the opportunities opened because of it, and good for them. but i long for the day when the public recognizes that a "bold" or "gay" role is as legitimate and respectable as any other, and an accomplishment in itself, even if it doesn't lead to a network tv career.
