Hindi maikubli ang tuwa ni TJ Trinidad nang ipagmalaki niya sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang pagpapalabas sa North America ng The Road simula sa Mayo 11.

Si TJ ang isa sa artista ng pelikulang ito ng GMA Films. Kasama rin dito sina Carmina Villarroel, Marvin Agustin, Rhian Ramos, Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, Louise delos Reyes, Ynna Asistio, Derrick Monasterio, Lexi Fernandez, at Jaclyn Jose.

Sabi ni TJ, "Alam mo, tuwang-tuwa ako, sobra!

"Siyempre, I mean that's a commercial release, it's not just select theaters, it's a hundred!

"That's a big deal, that's not small potato. A hundred theaters is a lot so the fact na... imagine, US and Canada, that's a lot!"

Dagdag pa ng Kapuso actor, "I mean, it's really something na nakaka-proud talaga.

"Hindi ko alam kung first time ito, na talagang commercial release... parang first time nga, so we're very, very proud of this.

"So, talagang wow! I cannot express how happy I am. I'm very excited for it.

"It's a milestone, I think, for GMA Films and also for us, the actors, and our director."

Si Yam Laranas ang nagdirek ng The Road.

CHALLENGING ROLE. May pagka-evil ang role ni TJ sa The Road. Gaano ka-challenging sa kanya ang mga ganitong klaseng roles?

"Hindi naman sa mas gusto, pero it's very challenging and, you know, I don't know of any actor who doesn't wanna do a challenging role.

"So when I was given that role, siyempre I'm so happy that I was given that chance.

"So I definitely like doing layered character that doesn't necessarily mean that the character is bad or good, but just someone that's just multi-faceted.
