Ipinagmamalaki rin ni Edgar Allan Guzman ang cameo role na gagampanan niya sa Si Enteng, Si Agimat, At si Ako. Sabi nito: “Cameo role lang talaga… ako yung gasoline boy. Nakakatuwa po, dahil kahit papaano, hindi pa rin ako nawalan ng project for the Metro Manila Filmfest.”


Nawalan man ng pang lead starrer para sa Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) ngayong Disyembre 2012, masaya pa rin si Edgar Allan Guzman sa naging kapalit.

Pumasok ang Thy Womb ng Centerstage Productions, kunsaan bida ang Superstar na si Nora Aunor, sa direksiyon ni Brillante Mendoza.

Bunga ito ng pagba-back out ng Unitel Pictures at Studio 5 ng kanilang Mga Kuwento Ni Lola Basyang, na may episodes na “Mariang Alimango” at “Pedrong Walang Takot.”

Si Edgar Allan ang lead actor sa Pedrong Walang Takot, na dinirek ni Jerrold Tarog, habang si Alex Gonzaga naman ang lead actress sa Mariang Alimango, sa direksiyon ni Chris Martinez.

Sa finals ng Artista Academy ng TV5, noong Oktubre 27, na-interview ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa Smart-Araneta Coliseum si Edgar Allan.

Banggit ni Edgar Allan, “Siyempre, masaya ako dahil si Ate Guy pa rin yung pumalit!

“Masaya at proud ako kahit naalis yung sa amin, dahil siya [Nora’s film entry] yung pumalit.

“Walang problema. At saka kapatid ko si Ate Guy, kay Sir Noel [Ferrer, Edgar’s manager]—walang problema.

“Alam ko naman, maganda yung proyekto, yung pelikula na iyon,” sabi rin ni Edgar tungkol sa Thy Womb.

“Sigurado ako na papanoorin ko ang pelikula, di ba?

“Alam mo na, may laban si Ate Guy!”

EXTENDED. Binanggit din ni Edgar Allan ang pagkaka-extend ng TV5 eco-fantaseryeng Enchanted Garden, kunsaan isa siya sa regular cast members.

Aniya, “Up to January [2013] na.

“Kaya masaya po kaming lahat ngayong holiday season!” sabi pa ni Edgar.

Sa kasalukuyang ini-air na episodes ng Enchanted Garden, special guest din si Nora bilang Nana Sela at Reyna Oleya, ang Diwata ng Eden.

Gusto raw ni Edgar makasama uli si Nora, na tinatawag niyang “nanay,” sakaling magsimula na ang Superstar ng bagong teleserye sa TV5.

“Oo nga, sana, sana. Sino ba naman ang aayaw, di ba?” sabi pa ng binata.

“Actually, na-miss ko nga siyang makatrabaho sa isang teleserye, kaya excited akong maka-eksena siya uli [sa Enchanted Garden special episodes].

“Kasi, last year pa yung Sa Ngalan Ng Ina namin. One year na rin yung nakalipas...”


FULL LENGTH. May panghihinayang man sa hindi natuloy na Mga Kuwento ni Lola Basyang para sa MMFF, positibo si Edgar Allan sa mga pagbabagong magaganap.

“Oo, sayang nga, e,” sambit ni Edgar.

“Nalulungkot, nanghihinayang ako, pero, kumbaga, naiintindihan naman namin.

“Siyempre, desisyon nila [producers] iyon, at ako naman, kahit papaano, excited pa rin ako for next year.”

Hindi pa raw final na “hindi na itutuloy” ang Lola Basyang twinbill, ayon din kay Edgar.

“Ang sabi kasi sa amin e itutuloy naman nila for next year,” banggit niya.

“Pero baka gagawin nila na paghiwalayin na at gawin nang tig-isang full-length movie.

“Para sa amin ni Alex [Gonzaga], mas better kung full-length na talaga siya.”

Problema ba sa schedule ng mga artista ang dahilan kaya na-desisyunang i-pull out ang Lola Basyang bilang MMFF entry?

“Hindi ako ganoong ka-sigurado kung ganoon ang reason nila,” sabi ni Edgar.

“Naka-two [shooting] days na ako sa kanila. Two days pa lang,” sabi niya.

“First week, nag-shoot ako. Three weeks after, doon ko nalaman na nag-back out na.”


CAMEO ROLE. Kung wala man siyang lead starrer sa MMFF this year, mapapanood pa rin si Edgar Allan sa Si Enteng, Si Agimat, At si Ako, kunsaan bida sina Vic Sotto, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., at Judy Ann Santos.

“Magka-cameo role ako kina Bossing [Vic Sotto].

“Makaka-eksena ko si Kuya Bong… si Senator, tsaka si Bossing, at si Ate Juday,” nakangiting sabi ni Edgar.

“Cameo role lang talaga… ako yung gasoline boy,” banggit pa niya.

“Nakakatuwa po, dahil kahit papaano, hindi pa rin ako nawalan ng project for the Metro Manila Filmfest.”


OTHER PROSPECTS. Sa gabi ng Artista Academy finals ay nag-perform din si Edgar, kasama ang “Tropang Kickouts” o ang mga na-eliminate na AA finalists.

Kinanta ni Edgar ang “Sisikat Din Ako” na kabilang sa kanyang ni-record na album.

Unang pinasikat ito ni Christopher de Leon, na kabilang sa soundtrack ng classic film na Kakabakaba Ka Ba? (1980) ni Mike de Leon.

Tungkol pa rin sa Artista Academy finals—na pinagwagian nina Vin Abrenica as best actor at Sophie Albert as best actress—bawat isa’y nakapag-uwi ng mga panalong umabot sa P10 milyon.

Kabilang sa mga premyo ang isang milyong piso, talent management contract sa TV5 amounting to about five million pesos, condo units, at marami pang iba.

Naalala ni Edgar Allan ang sarili dahil sumali rin siya’t nanalo as “Mr. Pogi” ng Eat Bulaga!, na naging daan niya para maging artista.

Para sa isang star-wannabe na si Edgar Allan, ang napanalunan daw niyang cash noon ay P100,000.

Pagmamalaki niya, “Pero malaki na rin po yun noon.

“Na-save ko rin po yung iba, nagbigay din ako sa family ko, sa nanay ko…”

Six years later, naging accomplished young actor si Edgar Allan, may regular na TV-network contract, lead movie starrers, at acting awards.

Kabilang sa awards iyong galing sa prestihiyosong Cinemalaya Independent Filmfest ng 2011, para sa indie-film entry na Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me, ng baguhang indie movie director na si Erick Salud.


MOVIE SEQUEL. May sequel daw ang Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me, na pagbibidahan uli ni Edgar Allan.

“Inaayos pa po yung script, pinapaganda pa. Sabi, pang-Cinemalaya uli.

“Ang plano namin [ni ‘Sir’ Noel Ferrer], pag wala pang soap na dumating, magpu-focus kami sa indie movies.

“Kasi tapos na rin ako sa theater,” banggit din ni Edgar.

Para sa tinampukang Bona ng PETA, na natapos ang full run noong Setyembre 30, umani si Edgar Allan ng papuri at rave reviews.

Ginampanan niya sa Bona ang papel ni Gino Sanchez, isang star-wannabe na nagpagulo at nagpahirap sa buhay ng fan-alalay-turned-talent manager na ginampanan ni Eugene Domingo.

“Nabasa ko nga po [yung mga reviews]. Salamat!” sambit ni Edgar.

Maaaring sa kanyang personal na buhay na lamang mayroong disappointing feedback para kay Edgar Allan.

Pero ayaw na itong pag-usapan ni Edgar Allan.

“Wala na. Okay na yun. Huwag na nating pag-usapan.

“Okay na po kami [ng mommy ko], noong July pa,” sabi niya.
