"Siyempre typical na naipangako na sa iyo, okay na, tapos ayon...Anything can happen hanggang hindi nagro-roll," said Chokoleit (left) about his feelings on what happened with Pasukob. He stressed that he is not angry with Allan K (top row) and John Lapus, who were both given choice roles in Pasukob.


Arriving from his ten-day U.S. tour, Chokoleit is back inthe country, shooting his newest teleserye with ABS-CBN, Prinsesa ng Banyera.

"After Marina, natutuwa ako na may role na naman namaaliw ko ang mga tao just like ‘yong kay Pearly," he said excitedly. The comedian played the kontrabida Pearly Shell in the fantaserye Marina starring Claudine Barretto.

The new soap Prinsesa ng Banyera stars Kristine Hermosa, TJ Trinidad, Angelikadela Cruz, and Rafael Rosell.

Chokoleit added, "Isa sa mga kababata nila [ang role ko]. Noong bata pasila, pangalan niya si Chito. Noong lumaki na, pangalan niya si Chita. Ako angnaging may-ari ng yelohan sa palengke. Mama ako diyan. Ibang atake naman ngpagka-bading."

"PASUKOB." On September 6, PEP (PhilippineEntertainment Portal) reported that an anonymous text has been going aroundsaying that Allan K took the role of Chokoleit in OctoArts Films' Pasukob.

The text read: "Uy, pinatanggal daw ni Allan K si Chokoleitsa pelikulang Pasukob ng OctoArts. Si Choko dapat yung best friend niAi-Ai [delas Alas] pero pinakiusapan ni Allan K si Ai-Ai na siya na lang.Ginawang friend na lang ni Rufa Mae si Choko pero kay Sweet [John Lapus] namanibinigay. Pinagtulungan ni Allan at Sweet si Choko. Wawa naman."

Pasukob is a spoof of the horror flick Sukob,starring Kris Aquino. Ai-Ai delas Alas and Rufa Mae Quinto will be topbillingthe movie.

Chokoleit explained that the film's director, Wenn Deramas,originally offered the role to him.

"Talagang klaro na sa akin na. Magsisimula na ang shooting ganiyan.Excited na ako na tapusin ang ten days na show ko sa U.S. tapos pagkabalik komagsu-shoot na agad," he clarified.

"Nasa Amerika pa naman ako noong ibinalita sa akin na hindina ako. Diyos ko, isang araw ako nasa hotel! Ayaw kong lumabas kasi klaro na,e. Ang pagkaka-alam ko lang hindi pumasok sa schedule kasi panay daw ang out ofthe country ko, magsisimula na raw sila.

"Ang nabigay na schedule August 28 ang first shooting daynila. Iyon lang iyong araw na hindi ko kaya kasi September 1 ang huling show kosa U.S. so makakarating ako dito September 3. After August 28, may shootingsila [susunod] ng September 5, so puwede naman mabali ng assistant director‘yong schedule.

"Medyo mababaw ‘yong dahilan na dahil sa schedule. I mustsay na there's something to it pero it's beyond me. Wala akong magagawa kahitna anong ngawa ko."

He admitted, "Sumama talaga ang loob ko siyempre. Doontalaga pumapasok ‘yong kasabihan na, ‘Kung hindi uukol, hindi bubukol.' PeroI'd love to sana kasi nakakatuwa ‘yon, e, na-explain na sa akin ‘yong role."

The comedian explained that he doesn't feel slighted becauseof anyone, but because of the situation.

"Alam mo ‘yon? All set na. Nasa Amerika ako, [iniisip ko] ayshooting na ako pagbalik. Buti sana kung kino-consider pa lang ako, e, ‘yongako na, e. Nasa ganoong stage na."

ALLAN K AND SWEET. Chokoleit told PEP that after hewas informed that the role of Ai-Ai's best friend was given to Allan K, he wasthen offered to play another role.

"‘Yong multiple characters na sa isang character puro akolang, napunta naman kay Sweet. May isa pa dapat na role pero huwag na lang,hindi na lang," he mused.

"Parang kawawa naman ako na major role sa akin sana dapattapos o-oo na lang ako... Sa iba na lang. Baka some other time. Hindi namansiguro end ‘yon. Hanggang may showbiz go lang."

He clarified that he isn't mad at anyone—not Sweet, notAllan K.

"Wala naman kaming problema ni Sweet... Bati kami ni Allan.Everytime may show sa Zirkoh na mga bakla, sinusuportahan ko. Nanonood ko. Okaykami."

He also added that he still has a good relationship withDirek Wenn.

"Siyempre hindi naman niya call, e. Alam ko pinaglaban niyarin ako."

Chokoleit, who already co-starred with Ai-Ai in Volta,attempted to explain the misunderstanding that happened.

"Ang sabi, ang intriga, inayawan ako ng producer. Ang saakin naman is ‘yong schedule. Pero siguro turn of ano lang ‘yon kasi noong lasttime, noong ZsaZsa Zaturnnah [Ze Moveeh], meant for Allan K daw iyon tapos napunta sa akin.

"Siguro ganito na lang, ako ang choice ng director, si AllanK ang choice ng producer. So sino ba naman ang masusunod? Siyempre angproducer... Na-realize din nila siguro na mas bagay kay Allan ‘yong role."

Chokoleit revealed that he isn't bitter about whathappened, "Honest lang ako na sabihin na sumama ang loob ko pero ‘yon na nga,not meant sa akin [‘yong role]."
