- Coco Martin confirms negotiation with Hollywood stars to join the teleserye.
- Will Manila Mayor Isko Moreno also be making an appearance?
At least three Hollywood stars are expected to join ABS-CBN’s long-running action drama teleserye FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
In an interview with the teleserye’s lead star and director Coco Martin at the sidelines of Sine Sandaan, he said that negotiations are still ongoing between the production and some Hollywood stars to join the top rating series.
“Bakit ang bilis niyo? Actually, mahirap magsalita agad-agad kasi mahaba pa ang tatakbuhin [ng kuwento]. Kasi halos lahat ata nagawa na po namin,” ani Coco. “Meron na kaming mga nakakausap. Actually meron nang um-oo, pero under negotiation pa po,” said Coco.
Coco also wished for more years for the series because he believes it is their way to inspire the Filipino viewers, that is why they continue to find and create new stories for their audience.
“Ginagawa namin ‘to talaga para ma-inspire ang mga Pilipino, lalo na ang mga manunuod gabi-gabi, para masasaya sila. Sana humaba pa.”
Aside from Hollywood actors, Martin was also asked if Manila Mayor Isko Moreno will be joining the cast soon, following a photo of them being uploaded on Instagram.
“Idolo ko ‘yun e. Surprise kung bakit kami nagkita. Pero ako talaga ang sumadya sa kanya and humingi ako ng appointment, kasi matagal ko na siya nakasama sa isang teleserye and nakipag-appointment ako sa kanya at may pinag-usapan kami,” Coco explained.
FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano has been airing for more than 4 years now. It has remained on top of the competition, gunning down every opponent that the rival network has pitted against it.
