Handsome hunk Jericho Rosales, or more popularly known as “Echo” recently announced that he will explore the world of comedy this coming 2020. After doing drama television series and films ever since he entered showbiz, the actor has decided to change his acting genre to something that would bring laughter to his audience, “Wala munang teleserye this year kasi patapos na ang taon—and we’re working on maybe a comedy show with ABS-CBN in 2020,” he said. “So, 2020 would be, like, maraming-maraming mga bagong projects na ini-explore ko.”
Though Echo didn’t provide further details on his upcoming projects, he hinted that there will still be a little bit of romance as well as action in some scenes, “Hindi ko alam kung nakakatawa ako, eh. Hindi naman baliw-baliw comedy na may sampalan, untugan. Pero doon pa rin sa linya ko na may konting romance, may konting action, you know, mga sitwasyon, mga istorya.” The actor described it as “ibang klaseng comedy”.
The handsome actor is in fact currently working on two movies that are set to be released next year. He added, “I am really into film now. I am looking forward to the films that are lined up next year. In 2020, gusto kong gumawa ng mas maraming films.”
In an interview at the red carpet of the opening night of Cinema One Originals Film Festival, Jericho expressed his excitement on making more films this 2020, “Kasi meron lang akong pelikula, mga istoryang ako ‘yung (may idea), na sa akin nanggaling. This time, parang, wala, eh, love ko talaga ang cinema and film so I just basically can’t wait anymore. Marami namang nagpapadala palagi ng scripts pero I just feel na marami akong gustong sabihin sa pelikulang gusto kong gawin. Sino pa ba ang gagawa, ang kikilos kundi ikaw, ‘di ba? So kumilos ka na kaagad kung hindi ka na makahintay.”
Echo’s entry to stardom started when he was crowned “Mr. Pogi” at Eat Bulaga’s then famous talent search competition. He is dubbed as “Asia’s Prince of Dramas” due to his numerous projects that garnered international attention and reaped several awards and nominations. He tied the knot with super model Kim Jones last May 2014.
