Ryan Agoncillo Excited To Do Drama Movie About Househelps Discarded By The Families They Served When They Get Old

AFTER FIVE successful years on the air, Ryan Agoncillo’s “Talentadong Pinoy” on TV5, which spawned several reality talent search shows, has been given its walking papers. The show will have its final telecast on August 18 with “The Battle of the Champions” to be held at Cuneta Astrodome.

The special guests are TV5’s top stars: Sharon Cuneta, Aga Muhlach, Joey de Leon and Derek Ramsay. Ryan admits it’s very painful for him as he has become so close to the staff and crew of “Talentadong Pinoy”, including their resident judges like Joey Reyes, John Lapus and Tuesday Vargas. Because of this, there’s a rumor that he is leaving TV5 and will jump “ober da bakod” to join GMA-7 where he’s now co-hosting “Eat Bulaga”.

“I’ve not really decided on anything yet,” says Ryan. “There’s still an offer for me to do a new sitcom with TV5, tentatively titled ‘Desperate Husbands’. But as of now, busy muna ako shooting a new movie, ‘Ano ang Kulay ng Nalimutang Pangarap’. Dito muna ang focus ko ngayon.”

The movie is an entry to the Film Development Council’s Sineng Pambansa in September, written and directed by Joey Reyes who has previously helmed Ryan in “My Househusband”. The story is about a “yaya” or baby sitter who took care of all the kids in a family. But when they all grew up, everyone decides to live abroad and the “yaya” who is now old and infirm, played by Rustica Carpio who won best actress awards here and abroad for “Lola”, has no one to turn to. Ryan plays the youngest child who’s conscience-stricken with what will happen to their former “yaya” if they’d just forsake her, while playing his older siblings are Bobby Andrews and Eula Valdes.
