Comedian/host John Lapus will spread luck, fun and cheer in the new version of Maricel Soriano’s blockbuster movie, Super Inday, which headlines Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera.
In the movie, John plays the Golden Bibe that grants super powers to Pinoy cinema’s so-called sexiest super heroine.
It should come as no wonder why John is a permanent fixture in Regal movies, his last being in Eugene Domingo’s box-office starrer, Mamarazzi.
To say the least, he is a favorite of lady producer Lily Monteverde and daughter Roselle Monteverde-Teo.
“John is my lucky charm sa mga Regal movie na nagawa namin. Basta merong role na puwede sa kanya, we don’t hesitate to cast him dahil bukod sa pagiging professional, may suwerte siyang hatid sa mga project ng Regal,” Mother Lily reveals.
John may have been a second choice for the Golden Bibe role, but the comedian has no qualms about it.
“Naku, I don’t care kung pang-ilang choice ako sa movie. Alam kong importante ang role ko at sapat na sa akin ’yon. Bukod diyan, friends kami ni Marian na kasama ko sa Show Me Da Manny, so, bakit ko naman tatanggihan ang project na alam kong maganda at magaan ang mga kasama, ’di ba?” John explains.
This generous nature wouldn’t go unnoticed since this early, the grateful Regal matriarch has her eyes set on giving John his own solo starrer earmarked for release sometime next year.
Meantime, John, as the Golden Bibe, not only wields his super powers in Super Inday but spreads hilarious moments as well.
With comedienne Pokwang also in the cast, the fantasy filmfest entry definitely spells not just double but triple fun on Christmas Day!
In Super Inday, Marian, John and Pokwang are ably supported by Jake Cuenca, Mylene Dizon, Buboy Villar, Jairus Aquino, Sheena Halili and a lot more!
