Derek no longer the second choice for latest flick

  This time, I'm no second choice," declared actor Derek Ramsay, referring to the latest Star Cinema film project he would be working on starting this month. The Inquirer asked his views on being the substitute for Jericho Rosales, who was the first pick to portray the character of Gab in the 2017 Metro Manila Film Festival entry "All of You," for which Derek eventually won the best actor trophy. "I think I was the second choice in most of my movies---I don't mind that. Growing up from playing sports, I know that one isn't always the first pick. You have to start at the bench. When your time comes, you get pulled out (from the bench), then you get to prove yourself (on ...Keep on reading: Derek no longer the second choice for latest flick.....»»

Awra, Thirdy, and the the funniest lookalikes in sports

Everyone out here is unique, don't ever let other people tell you otherwise. However, there are 7 billion people on planet Earth, sometimes you just can't help but find someone that looks eerily similar like you. In sports, it happens more than you think. Which is funnier not only for the sports star but for his lookalike and for us normal people as well. Mga Kapamilya, marvel at the best doppelgängers in the land.   LA Tenorio and "LA Tenorio" The most recent of course is LA Tenorio meeting his well... older brother. Related: Tenorio meets "Tenorio" at the Philippine Arena] At the end of Christmas Clasico this year, the Ginebra leader got the shock of his life when he met Lando Pormento Bago. It was so great even Marc Pingris joined in on the fun and had to take a photo with not one, but two, LA Tenorios.   The Spark Ginebra players have a lot of doppelgangers, tbh. [Related: Caguioa look-alike cherishes end of Ginebra's title drought] After the Gin Kings won their first of back-to-back Governors' Cup titles, the long-lost member of the Fast and the Furious showed up. Alvin Corpuz looks and dresses like Mark Caugioa, He also claims that he plays like Caguioa too. Well, okay then.   Biiiiiimb! First of all, Bimby is a national treasure. You can tell that Ms. Kris Aquino is doing a fantastic job of raising him as a single parent. Second of all, Bimby looks like Thomas Torres. Plain and simple. Come on now, how can you not scream "Biiiiiimb!" everytime you see Torres.   The long-lost Ravena Joke all you want about Awra and Thirdy Ravena being lookalikes but what do you know, the high-flying Blue Eagle knows that too and he more or less thinks the same way. Oh yes he does. Even Awra Briguela is hyped for Game 2 of the #UAAPSeason80 Finals!

Come on now.   Mr. President or Hip-hop star? It's amazing how the nickname "Mr. President" stuck with Gabe Norwood just because he looked a lot like Barack Obama when he first came to the PBA. But guess what, Gabe is no longer rocking the same hairstyle as Obama and they don't really look alike nowadays. If you didn't know much about basketball but you appreciate music, you might wonder my J. Cole is playing for Gilas Pilipinas and Rain or Shine. The resemblance is uncanny right?   Do you know any more sports doppelgangers out there? Come @ us.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

NEW YORK, United States --- "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will happily settle for second. Rian Johnson's second installment in the third "Star Wars" trilogy rocketed to a debut of $220 million at the North American box office, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Online database Rotten Apples tracks movies, TV shows with alleged sexual harassers

Want to watch a movie but don't want to support someone who may have committed sexual misconduct behind the scenes? With allegations coming on a weekly basis since the Harvey Weinstein story broke, it's admittedly a tedious task. Website Rotten Apples helps you keep track.
