Richard Gutierrez proud of new Captain Barbell

RICHARD GUTIERREZ thought he won’t be able to make it at the blessing of his mom Royale Artists Management office at Century Imperial. “I had a fever earlier,” he says. “Lagi akong puyat taping ‘Captain Barbell’ and also two new episodes of ‘Anatomy of a Disaster’ focusing on earthquakes and fires kaya lagi akong pagod. But it’s worth all my troubles. The new ‘Captain Barbell’ is bigger and better than the first one, lalo technically. We made some changes kasi sa first one, high school pa lang si Teng, my alter ego. This time, we made him more mature and he has bigger responsibilities. Sa ‘Anatomy of a Disaster’ naman, you should see our assembled footage of the aftermath of the quake and tsunami in Japan and also the quake in New Zealand. We then show how to prepare for such a disaster. It’s fire prevention month at di ba ang dami-dami laging sunog? I went to one of the biggest recent fires, the one in Barangay Culiat, to cover it.”

Because he’s so busy, he doesn’t have time to train for the All-Star Kapuso Fun Run that he’s spearheading for the environmental projects of the Kapuso Foundation to be held at the Seaside Blvd. of the SM Mall of Asia on April 10. “I want to train running muna to make sure I can do 10 kilometers,” he says. Those who want to join, you can register now up to April 7 at the business centers of SM malls at North Edsa, Megamall, Southmall and MOA. All stars of GMA will be there and this is your chance to run with them.
