Fans of Filipino entertainment have some choices to make Friday, as both Harrah’s Tahoe and Thunder Valley feature performers beloved by the island nation.

On Friday, Tahoe hosts Piolo Pascual, the definitively handsome acting/singing/modeling talent often tagged as the “Filipino Heartthrob.” Pascual, who got his start in the biz on the the teen variety TV program “That’s Entertainment,” has become a fixture of Filipino feature films, benefiting from his country’s love of romance.

Romance has also been the through-line of his recording career, starting with his first release “Paolo,” which went platinum.

Toni not claiming credit for film’s success with Piolo

TONI Gonzaga doesn’t want to entertain the intriguing observation that she’s the reason Starting Over Again became a certified blockbuster and that she helped Piolo Pascual back to becoming a box-office star again.

“I think that’s unfair,” she avers. “He is Piolo Pascual already. No matter what they say, his contribution to the industry can never be underestimated. When I was just starting in the ‘biz and eventually moved to ABS-CBN, it was my wish to do a project with him. I’m thankful that it happened and bore a very successful result.”

The actress-host believes that apart from her on screen chemistry with Piolo, the material itself is a huge come-on why the film delivered at the tills.

“Oh yes! I guess it’s just right timing and right project. For one, the story is not your usual fairy tale. It’s so mature that the twist is acceptable to the viewing public. It helped that contemporary movie buffs are more intelligent now. They appreciate realism in what they watch, which is a very good sign!”

Asked whom she wants to do a movie with in the near future, Toni reveals, “Bosing Vic (Sotto)! Everybody knows that I started with Eat Bulaga. We were supposed to do a movie intended for the MMFF before, remember? It just didn’t push through. I really wish to do a project with him so I can have a guesting stint in EB. It’s been 10 years since I left the show and I miss the whole gang!”

Rumor has it that she and boyfriend Paul Soriano are already engaged since December of last year only they’re keeping it a secret.

“It’s not true! If ever that time comes, we will not deny it. It’s something you should be proud of in the first place,” ends Toni.

‘Starting Over Again’ breaks records, passes P400M mark

MANILA – The first big screen team-up of Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga made history on Saturday, becoming the first non-Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry to surpass the P400-million mark.

According to Star Cinema’s advertising and promotions manager Mico Del Rosario, “Starting Over Again” now ranks among the highest-grossing Philippine films of all time, just a month after it was released in theaters on February 12.

It bumped off the 2011 comedy film, “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin,” which earned P332 million during its run.

The film, which is Star Cinema’s Valentines’ Day offering, also broke records abroad, becoming the highest-grossing Filipino movie in the international box office.

It also beat the previous career records set by its lead stars Pascual and Gonzaga, as well as its director Olivia Lamasan (“Madrasta”, “The Mistress”, In the Name of Love”).

Written by Carmi Raymundo, “Starting Over Again” tells the story of college professor Marco (Pascual), whose girlfriend, Ginny (Gonzaga), left him without saying goodbye or giving an explanation.

Four years after the breakup, the two cross paths again at a time when Marco is already happy with a new partner, Patty (Iza Calzado).

Forced to work with Marco, who has also successfully pursued his passion to become a chef, Ginny starts to regret leaving him and tries to win him back.

“Starting Over Again,” which is part of the continuing 20th anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN film outfit Star Cinema, is still showing in over 270 theaters in the Philippines and in select theaters in the United States.

Iza to do a teleserye with Piolo

WOW, Ian F., le’t s congratulate Iza Calzado for having been tapped as tv host ng It’s Showtime at The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles.

Both programs happen to be aired daily in ABS-CBN kaya Kapamilya followers get to watch her on tv twice a day.

Guess who is Iza’s ‘equal’ among the Kapamilya talents?

Kris Aquino, who is seen twice a day — in Kris TV and Aquino & Abunda Tonight.

“Alam n’yo,” said Iza, “ang makalinya ko lang si Kris is a great honor. I admire her kasi as a tv host.”

Iza is also proving her worth as an actress. To date, her performance as the ‘other woman’ in the still showing blockbuster movie, Starting Over Again, is still talk of the town.

After all, as she herself agree, it’s not easy to pit talent with the two of the most talented and versatile performers in the business, Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga.

Anytime soon, Iza will realize her dream to play full-time leading lady to Papa P (everybody’s term of endearment for Piolo). They are doing a soap together.

Iza said she will never forget the fact that in her first movie, Milan, she had Papa P for her leading man. At heto, sa first full-length picture niya with Star Cinema na Starting Over, kapareha niya uli si Papa P.

Both Milan and Starting Over is directed by Olive Lamasan.

“I guess some people are truly lucky and I’m glad I am one of them. If I sound mayabang, well, masisisi n’yo ba ako?” waring nahihiyang pahayag ni Iza.

Piolo nearly quit in showbiz

NOW it can be told, Ian F., that Piolo Pascual considered quitting showbiz pala this year kung ’di lang pumatok sa takilya ang still showing movie niya, Starting Over Again, with Toni Gonzaga for Star Cinema.

Piolo didn’t articulate why. Basta raw, binalak niya na mamirmihan na sa Amerika, where his mom and several of his siblings live along with 15-year-old son Iñigo.

Pero gaya raw ng sabi ng talent management arm ng ABS-CBN, Star Magic, headed by Direk Johnny Manahan and Mariole Alberto, may lugar pa si Piolo sa showbiz and he should not lose hope.

Kaya, grateful raw siya, bukod kina Toni at Iza Calzado (his leading ladies), kay Direk Olive Lamasan, with whom he last worked in the movie Milan.

Nagpapasalamat din daw siya lalo na kay Malou Santos, Star Cinema managing director.

* * *

SA victory blowout for the cast, production staff and everyone involved sa Starting Over…, no wonder na present din sina Charo Santos-Concio, president at CEO ng ABS-CBN, at Gabby Lopez, chairman of the board, ABS-CBN.

Nandu’n din sina Carlo Katigbak, head of Access, at Aldrin Cerrado, head of Finance ng ABS-CBN.

As of this writing, the film, which is on its fourth week, has reportedly grossed close to P400M.

* * *

Sayang at patapos na nang dumating sa victory blowout si Cai Cortez, gumanap na isa sa close friends ni Toni sa Starting Over…, bukod kay Beauty Gonzales.

Iyon pala, na-involve si Cai sa isang puwedeng ituring na freak accident, dahil pinili niya raw na magbihis sa kotse nang malapit na siya sa ELJ Building, where the occasion was taking place.

While squeezing through her damit na isusuot, kung bakit aksidente raw niyang nasagi ang isang nakausling kung anumang matulis na bagay.

Bago niya nalaman, dumudugo na ang hintuturo sa kanyang kanang paa.

Kaya, she had to rush herself to the hospital for first-aid treatment.

Sayang, nang finally nga ay makarating si Cai sa party, pack-up na ang lahat.

Pero natanggap pa rin niya ang kanyang bonus from Ma’am Malou herself.

For those of you who don’t know, Cai is the only daughter of Rez Cortez and wife Candy.

Rez takes pride in saying na natural comedienne ang kanyang anak.

* * *

Going back to the party, present din sina Lito Pimentel, Joross Gamboa, Edgar Allan Guzman, Bryan Santos at Ryan Yllana, who all played supporting roles sa pelikula.

Starting over again, the way movies were

(UPDATED) ERNEST Hemingway told aspiring writers, and I suppose filmmakers too, “Show it, don’t tell it.” Fitzgerald did it that way, so did Cather, so did others both contemporary with and succeeding Hemingway. In movies, this style of showing instead of narrating suddenly appeared. I can’t think with which film it started or finally took off as the way to make a movie.

“Show it, don’t tell it.” But most stories, even famous ones by say Victorian writers, do tell their stories; and many contemporary writers do it still, some handling very modern themes. Hemingway’s advice seems to have been forgotten perhaps all for the better.

But movies once mostly told the story rather more than showed it happening. Sure plots unfolded but they were greatly moved along with words of explanation. Filipino movies seemed stuck in the narrative mold and then, imitating new thrillers, they went European, which is to say sparing with speech, and showed the story happening instead. It would be the audience’s problem to understand the movie; and the filmmakers’ challenge was help with the comprehension with a variety of devices, like flashbacks.

Well, Starting Over Again is in the old mold of telling a story while showing it unfolding as well. This is a remarkable achievement for being so dangerously retrograde. It is to the credit of both those who wrote the lines and those who spoke them so well that it is pulled off with perfection; without a single false or awkward instant.

I don’t recall the names of the scriptwriters or of the director but Piolo Pascual, Toni Gonzaga and Iza Calzado speak the lines, and tell the story as much as show it: the story of a love found, lost, found and… I won’t give away the ending.

The actor who plays the father of Toni’s character is the only one who never tells what happened or is happening; he endures things with stolid reticence, showing only on his impassive face a man defeated by a single failure; someone who never picked himself up again.

To be exact, first love here was not found; rather was it carefully planted on the part of one character and delightfully cultivated on the part of the other; until it appears in full flower. But when we look at the flower patch again, part of it is bare where once there was a pair of blossoms and now another pair of grows nearby, of which only one has survived from the earlier pair, slightly changed.

How all that happens is partly shown but mostly, in the old fashioned way of old movies. It is told but in a totally new way. The spoken narratives flow naturally, effortlessly from the situation the characters find themselves in, or put themselves in, and from which they try to get out.

There are flashbacks but they are not drawn out; what is drawn out is the narrative in which flashbacks are interjected as iconic and revealing instants.

It is bold to tell the story of a movie but all three actors pull it off superbly.

Piolo shows his love as it flowers; and then ruefully relates its loss but with the softness and clarity he has painfully earned through a suffering he has never overcome. It is buried so deep that he can relate it as if he had completely recovered but forgotten none of it. He does not tell it in an improbably clinical way but with just enough feeling, enough doleful depth in his eyes to show its root in a still throbbing pain.

Effortlessly he conveys a character that all of us has assumed at one time or another, sometimes permanently; the one who graduates from the things he does without effort, in this case teach history, to something else he likes doing but where he runs the risk of failure and succumbs. You see him happy as he goes boldly on the same wrong path when his failure should have warned him to take stock and prepare himself better for a second try. In the end he does take stock, prepares himself better but it is too late. The very lightness that made him so attractive to a childlike woman deeply in love with him makes him if not repellent then dangerous to her love.

As she puts it, always in the wrong context, she was afraid she would stop loving him; that would be too much of a loss for her because she cherished that love.

She loved him for his detachment and yet commitment; conveying a strength she doesn’t see in any other man in her life especially her father; but when he returns her love, she sees the weakness of a man who loves not wisely but too well. She and the life he thinks he can make for both of them is in her view facing certain failure.

Toni shows a childlike, even childish exuberance and optimism that survives intact through all the travails that it is Piolo who mostly suffers. For him the past is a healed wound but it is still sensitive to the touch—scar tissue but tougher than the surrounding skin yet affected by the slightest change in the climate. In the movie’s immortal line, “I know this, I can never unlove you.”

Piolo has a genius for snatching long lines teetering on the edge of cheesiness, with a line of his own that gives what was said to him, and to which he responded, a freshness and an aptness to the situation in which it unfolds.

Toni Gonzaga also tells but it is not her story and that is her problem. She cannot talk of her real feelings. She talk only of what she feels and is afraid to stop feeling; and of what she would like to believe but deeply mistrusts.

The scene of her trashing in bed, alternating between despair, hope and then turning to cunning is a bravura performance of perfect lightness; it never feels too long. I must say she has a most expressive set of toes. This is a part of the body that no preceding movie has ever been utilized to express anything, let alone sexual passion; as when her toes spread out until her big toe distances itself from the others and sticks out with a thumb’s up for what she has just so loudly undergone.

Toni too speaks but she tells the wrong things, which mislead her the most of all of those whose lives intersect on her return. We are not sure if that was accidental or contrived by Piolo and perhaps by her as well.

For Toni, narrative is not a way of moving the story forward but of having her way. And it is in reaction to Toni’s sweetest yet worst outburst of self-indulgence, that Iza Calzado—with an unvarying saccharine blandness—suddenly yet softly rises, with the fewest possible words and no histrionics, to give the most moving declaration of a love that never flared into life with passion, but sparked from the ember of a friendship and grew slowly into a steady undying flame. Speaking in a soft voice that never breaks as she masters, without showing a hint of it, a hurt that must be tearing her apart, she turns when she has said her piece and walks away. Then she cries.

This is the most mature romantic comedy I have ever watched on the screen, and while I am given to hyperbole whenever I enjoy a movie, on this one I have tried to hold back my reactions until finally I must say with cold sobriety, that this is one of the finest romantic comedy films ever made, here or abroad. It is the finest Filipino movie ever made in the old way of telling it without a trace of anachronism.

The last five minutes should be cut out because it is inconsistent with the character that is so carefully developed by Toni—not of a flirt or of someone can easily fall in and out love; but of a someone who chose carefully whom she wanted to love only to fearfully shy away from it, and then return to brave humiliation to undo her mistake. This movie has to be watched because it is not so much seen as experienced.

Toni and Piolo to beat Vice’s record?

Dahil sa higanteng tagumpay ng Starting Over Again, bilang pasasalamat ay nag-blow-out si Toni Gonzaga sa entertainment press by having a thanksgiving presscon.

Hindi alam ni Toni ang exact figures ng gross ng movie na hanggang ngayon ay humahataw pa rin sa box-office pero ang nakarating sa aming balita, close to P400M na raw ang kinikita ng pelikula.

Say ni Toni, hindi raw talaga nila ito ine-expect at ang wish nga lang nila even before the showing, maka-P100M lang ay okay na sa kanila.

“Actually, ang target lang namin talaga ay kumita ang pelikula. Sabi nga nila, makalampas lang ng P100M, okay na ’yun, kasi nga, iba ’yung timpla ng pelikula. Mabigat na light na lalabas ka ng sinehan na parang pinag-isip ka niya, parang iisipin mo ang nangyari sa buhay mo di ba? Na, ‘o, naka-relate ka ba?’ ‘sino ka sa tatlo?’ ’di ba?” pahayag ni Toni.

Maging sa U.S. pala ay humataw sa takilya ang pelikula at nasulat pa.

“Oo, kasi talagang lumaban daw sa box-office doon. Nagulat sila, na parang this newcomer Filipino movie making waves daw in the U.S. Tapos, 52 cinemas lang, naka-$150,000.00,” masayang wika pa ng dalaga.

Sa ngayon kasi, ang may hawak ng record ng highest box-office sa local movies ay ang pelikula ni Vice Ganda last December na Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy na umabot sa P420M. Kasalukuyan pang showing ang Starting Over Again at hindi malayong malampasan nila ang kinita ng GBBT.

Pero ayon kay Toni ay hindi naman daw niya iniisip ’yun at love daw niya si Vice Ganda.

“Natutuwa nga ako sa kanya kasi nagpa-block screening siya (for SOA), so sabi ko, first time na may gumawa sa akin ng ganu’n. Na-touch ako talaga,” say ni Toni.

She added, “mahal ko naman si Vice, pero kung lalampas, eh, magkaibigan pa rin kami. At anu’t anuman ang mangyari, hindi ’yun makakaapekto sa pagkakaibigan namin. At malaki na ang napatunayan ni Vice. Sa kanya na ‘yung tronong phenomenal talaga.”

May bonus na bang ibinigay ang Star Cinema?

“Oo, ikadadamdam ko kung wala,” natatawa niyang say. “Sasakit ang loob ko (kung walang bonus), sa pinagdaanan ko sa pelikula. Ako na lang ang hihingi. Kung hindi man nila bigay, hihingin ko.”

Sa ngayon ay pag-uusapan pa raw nila ng Star Cinema kung ano ang next movie niya. Kung lalagyan ba ng part 2 ang movie o iba naman.

“May nakalatag na talaga akong next na gagawin. Pero dahil nga dito sa movie, hindi ko pa alam kung ano ang magiging plano. Kasi magmimiting pa.”

When asked kung sino ba ang gusto niyang makatrabaho pa or maging leading man, say ni Toni, gusto raw sana niya ay matuloy na ang naudlot na pagsasama nila ni Vic Sotto.

When asked kung magagawa pa ba niyang ulitin ang love scene na katulad ng ginawa niya with Piolo Pascual sa SOA, say ni Toni ay baka hindi na raw at baka maloka na raw talaga ang parents niya.

Local stars study under US acting coach

“THE FILIPINO actors are wonderful,” said a renowned American acting coach who had a chance to work with local actors like Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby in a workshop.

Ivana Chubbuck — who has trained famous Hollywood celebrities like Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, Brad Pitt, Beyonce Knowles, Eva Mendes, and Jim Carry, among others — arrived last Thursday to conduct a two-day workshop with select contract artists of listed Lopez-led media giant ABS-CBN Corp.

Ms. Chubbuck had been invited by Filipino director Rahyan Carlos, who had trained under the acting coach in Los Angeles. Mr. Carlos is the artist training head of Star Magic, the talent development arm of ABS-CBN.

Aside from Pascual and Milby, other ABS-CBN contract stars who participated in the workshop were Jake Cuenca, Xian Lim, Gerald Anderson, Arjo Atayde, and Dimples Romana. Non-contract stars like Suzette Ranillo, Issa Litton, and Carla Martinez, also joined the group.

The acting coach has taught at The Julliard School of Drama in New York, and was honored by the Russian International Film Festival with a lifetime achievement award alongside director Francis Ford Coppola, and actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

In 2004, she wrote the book The Power of the Actor: The Chubbuck Technique. She described her book as “the 12-step acting technique that will take you from script to a living, breathing, dynamic character.”

She explained her acting technique is based on emotional memory, which urges actors to use memories from their past to generate current emotions. “In order to recreate real human behavior, and truly be in the scene, and avoid acting it out, I teach actors to go the source of what motivates human behavior. This is why I do not believe in acting classes. You will not be a bear, you will not be a tree experiencing sap running down your bark. We will go directly to the script, doing script analysis from the viewpoint of the science of behavior on how and why people really behave,” she said.

“I will teach you to replicate the character from your own personal needs and life experiences. This creates a character that is vivid, authentic, and living, and breathing in the moment. The Chubbuck Technique is a way to realize and embody a character so that the character becomes you, and you become the character,” she added.

For the ABS-CBN workshop, Ms. Chubbuck personally assigned specific scenes to actors, which she critiqued after each performance.

“I have a game plan for each of my students. I analyze, and take into account the actor’s strength and weaknesses, his problem areas, his history, and assign material that will best facilitate his growth and advancement as an individual. I choose the appropriate script material that will quickly fix specific difficulties, thereby enabling the actor to expand his abilities in his craft, and enhance his capacity to get the job,” she said.

Ms. Chubbuck — who also worked with Jessica Alba, Ian Somerhalder, Jared Leto, America Ferrera, David Boreanaz, David Spade, and Kate Bosworth — said her clients succeeded in Hollywood because hard work, and their fearless attitude to take risks.

“You have to realize that Hollywood is a big pond, and you got to rise in that pond, which has sharks, piranhas, and bacteria. You should be able to have to right stuff to be able to tackle the piranhas and rise above it. You will need to have the skills,” she said.

Mr. Carlos said the network invited Ms. Chubbuck as part of it’s thrust to continuously improve the craft of the contract stars.

Star Magic will conduct an intensive acting workshop on Chubbuck Technique on March 22 and 23 which will be open to both amateur and professional actors. The workshops will be conducted by Mr. Carlos who is the only Filipino authorized and trained by Ms. Chubbuck to teach her technique in the Philippines.
