Pedro Penduko on possibility of playing Pedro Penduko: "I hope I can give it justice if ever I take it. If it becomes a movie."

Hindi nag-deny at hindi inamin ni James Reid ang balitang tinanggihan diumano niya ang P2-million talent fee para sa isang personal appearance dahil mas pinili niyang magpahinga.

Pero kung pagbabasehan ang sagot niya sa exclusive interview sa kanya ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), reading between the lines, may katotohanan ang balita.

Pahayag ni James, “I actually was in a very bad shape, and I think my health was more important.

“So I was able to get in shape for Century Tuna and a lot of my endorsements, and getting shape for my TV show and get healthy again.

“So, I think it was worth it.”

Hindi ba siya nanghinayang sa P2 million?

“I think I would have lost more if I didn’t take a break,” ang hindi nagdalawang-isip na pahayag ni James.

Nakausap ng PEP si James sa ikalawang araw ng 37th Manila International Book Fair, na ginanap sa SMX Convention Center, kahapon, September 15.

NEXT PEDRO PENDUKO? Dumalo si James sa 37th Manila International Book Fair dahil siya ang inimbitahan sa book signing ng Pedro Penduko: The Legend Begins.

Dahil dito, nagkaroon ng mga haka-haka na siya ang magbibida sa remake ng mga pelikulang pinagbidahan nina Efren Reyes Sr. (1954), Ramon Zamora (1973), at Janno Gibbs (1994).

Binigyan din si James ng commemorative lithograph ni Pedro Penduko, at marami ang nakapansin sa malaking pagkakahawig nila.

Sabi ni James, “I’m happy, I’m the inspiration… the look of Pedro Penduko. It’s nice to know I’m the peg.

“I’ve read the book and it’s different, mas serious siya.

“It’s very flattering, it’s really cool. It’s going in my bedroom.

“I hope I can give it justice if ever I take it. If it becomes a movie.”
