After the success of the movie “Die Beautiful” featuring Paolo Ballesteros as the lead actor during the Metro Manila Film Festival last year, Paolo will be seen in two movies for this year, 2017.
On November 22, “Trip Ubusan: Lola vs Zombies” has been shown in cinemas with Kapuso actor Paolo among the actors. With him in the movie were Wally Bayola and Jose Manalo where they played the role of their famous characters in Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye” as Lola Nidora (Wally), Lola Tinidora (Jose) and Lola Tidora (Paolo).
On the other hand, on November 29, exactly on his 35th birthday, “Barbi, D’ Wonder Beki” will be shown in cinemas where Paolo played the roles of female and gay characters.
In line with the said movie, aside from Paolo, Vice Ganda is among those actors who portray the same role so people were asking if the two can work together in a movie considering the fact that they were working in different networks whose shows fall on the same time slot.
When asked, Paolo said he had to ask approval from Eat Bulaga’s Management first. But then, he said Eat Bulaga is his priority so he thinks it wouldn’t be possible.
“Kailangan kong tanungin ang management ng Eat Bulaga, kasi katapat namin ang It’s Showtime. Siyempre, araw-araw ang Eat Bulaga at yun talaga ang trabaho ko, so I don’t think so.”
“Siguro kung wala na siya sa Showtime.”
Meanwhile, as Paolo had been known for his make-up transformations, he said, given a choice, he would like to transform himself as Alden Richards. Paolo claimed it would be easier for him to look like Alden as they have the same facial features.
