Dear Fashion PULIS

I heard from DZZM teleradyo that KC Concepcion will be the one who will portray Darna. Okay… Cristine Reyes was not really my bet since she doesn’t live up to my expectation, but KC Concepcion? Come on! I’d rather choose Cristine over KC. In my humble opinion, Cristine is way better than KC. Her body, her curves, her everything is just perfect (not her attitude and prolly her complexion as well, but seriously, ABS-CBN need to stop giving projects to someone who does not only “fit” the description, but also does not know how to freaking act- though I have to commend KC for playing a kontrabida role because it perfectly fits her character and her real attitude).

I don’t know if this true, BUT the hosts of MISMO said that it was already confirmed… so I guess I will no longer look forward to watching Darna. The title should even be changed to DRABNA or DRAGNA.

From spin doctor to Dr Who: BBC names new Time Lord

By Peter Griffiths

LONDON (Reuters) – A British actor best known for playing a foul-mouthed political spin doctor was named on Sunday as the new lead in the BBC’s “Doctor Who”, the long-running science fiction series that has terrified generations of children.

Ending months of speculation, Britain’s public broadcaster said Peter Capaldi, 55, will be the 12th Doctor, a time travelling adventurer who first appeared on screens in 1963.

Racing through time and space in a blue police telephone box, the Time Lord has battled foes such as the Cybermen, the Weeping Angels and the Daleks. Episodes in the last series drew record audiences for BBC America in 2012.

Capaldi, born in Glasgow, Scotland, said he was thrilled to take on the position previously held by 30-year-old Matt Smith.

Capaldi’s most famous role to date was that of Malcolm Tucker, the prime minister’s aggressive media chief and policy enforcer in “The Thick of It”, a BBC political comedy which also had a big screen incarnation in the 2009 movie “In the Loop”.

“Malcolm has been banished from the mirror by this new doctor who would certainly not put up with Malcolm’s language or attitudes to the world,” Capaldi said at the end of a live show announcing the name of the new Doctor that was shown on BBC channels around the world.

The actor had been the bookmakers’ favorite to take on a role that has long been a fixture of British popular culture. He joked that it was a relief that the secret was finally out.

“For a while I couldn’t tell my daughter, who would be looking on the Internet and discovering that people were saying so-and-so should be Doctor Who. She was getting rather upset that they never mentioned me,” he said.

The BBC said Capaldi’s debut as the Doctor will be broadcast on Christmas Day.

After-Credits in ‘The Wolverine’ Reveals Scenes from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Recent early screenings of “The Wolverine” thrilled fans when it revealed the much talked about scenes after the credits leading to the events of Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”


Hugh Jackman enthused and confirmed that there is in fact an after-credits teaser, which they consider as the tease of all tease. “There’s a lot of great actors in it, and if you stick around to the end of the credit of The Wolverine, you’re going to get a really nice Easter Egg for what Days of the Future Past has to offer…which we can’t reveal!” says Jackman.

Tormented, embarking on a quest to find meaning in his life, this is Wolverine’s ultimate journey and one which forces him to unleash that unbridled, animalistic ‘berserker’ rage in all its power and ferocity. Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” takes the legendary mutant to Tokyo where Logan/Wolverine is out of his element in Japan and becomes embroiled in a murky and mysterious conspiracy. Battling the fearsome Silver Samurai and other vicious adversaries, he is also searching for meaning in his life and questioning his immortality. Dark and gritty, the action-fueled drama is set after the events of the 2006 film “X-Men: The Last Stand” and was inspired by the storyline from a popular 1982 comic book by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. Directed by James Mangold, “The Wolverine” also stars Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Will Yun Lee, Brian Tee and Svetlana Khodchenkova.

“The Wolverine” opens July 25 in theaters nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

(TV) Tom Rodriguez explained his character far from his personality in real life.

Kapuso actors Dennis Trillo and Tom Rodriguez may be sweet on screen in their primetime series on GMA-7 “My Husband’s Lover” where they portray as gay secret lovers, but they are not turned on by each other in real life.

In an interview with Tom during a recent mall show in Imus, Cavite, the actor told GMANetwork.com that every time he does a scene with Dennis, he puts himself in the shoes of his character, Vincent, a closet bisexual.

Tom explained that since his character in the series is far from his personality in real life, he motivates himself to act based on the experiences that Vincent had gone through in the story and so, even if the scene is intimate, he doesn’t have to be “turned on” by his co-star.

“Nag-usap kami ni Dennis na kailangan mag-show through na mahal namin ang isa’t isa as Vincent and Eric kasi sa totoong buhay friends lang talaga kami. ‘Yun ang challenge namin: na we have to transcend ourselves at hindi yung mga sarili ang isipin namin kundi ang mga characters namin,” shared Tom.

Tom also commented on CBCP’s (Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines) reaction to their show.

“Every one is entitled to his own opinion naman e. Criticism is OK with us. Sa amin naman kasi we’re just trying to entertain the audience and show this love story,” Tom reasoned.

“Actually kung titignan mo ‘yung storya ng ‘My Husband’s Lover,’ makikita mo na hindi talaga naka-focus ito sa homosexual/heterosexual affairs kundi sa isang love story na nangyayari talaga sa totoong buhay, regardless of gender,” added the actor.

My Husband’s Lover” is Tom’s first project after he transferred from ABS-CBN to GMA Network. He admitted that, as a newbie, he did not set his hopes too high that his first project would be a really big break for him.  For Tom, the success of “My Husband’s Lover” was a pleasant surprise, something that he will always thank the heavens – and GMA Network, for that matter – for.

“My Husband’s Lover” airs from Monday to Friday after “Mundo Mo’y Akin” (approx. 9:30pm) on GMA-7.
