A Cause to Run

A Cause to Run
Article posted September 23, 2008

Being one of the most sought-after actors in the industry today would definitely mean a tight schedule. However, for one Richard Gutierrez, it also means taking the time out to be a role model for the youth in the country. Text by Erick Mataverde. Photos by Mitch S. Mauricio.

Richard did not have any qualms at all gracing the Run for Peace fun run last September 20, 2008 at the Quirino Grandstand in Pasay City. This just made the meaningful event more significant for the thrust of the government to promote peace in the country.

"We're very thankfu to him," says Undersecretary Danilo Consomido of the Office of External Affairs in MalacaƱang when Richard accepted their invitation to attend the said event.

Likewise, Gabby Concepcion was also present to give his support, and realized the importance of this worthy cause: "It would be nice to make a difference that's why I am here. Of course it's hard if you only exist. You want to live, right? And I know I have a reason for being here eh. It's nice to spread the word, right?"

Richard was requested to give an inspirational message to the participants and guests during that day, and he was open as to what he wanted for all and what is needed to attain it: "We all dreamt to have peace and unity in our country. Each of us has their own role to achieve this dream as an epitome of youth.
"Time to get up and we coordinate with each Filipino to achieve the peace. As Ghandhi once said: 'Be the difference that you want to see in this world.' And that's what I am doing now. For the development the Philippines and development of Mindanao is our gain. "

Prior to Phoenix’s return, Dayze recounts that Claire Morales was caught in her laboratory. But before the girl was dragged away, she told Dayze to warn Asero (Phoenix) that he must beware of the people in Empire. She does not know what has become of the teen, but has heard news that she was sent by her father to another country.

Will she return, though, when she learns that Apollo has been killed by the Empire’s liaison to international affairs, Jupiter?

In Advocate, our mole reports that things look gloomy. After the excitement of Phoenix’s return to Advocate has died down, things have returned to normal—except, our mole reports, when it comes to the elusive Lady Q.

Lady Q, Rock Star, and Beat Box were the ones who spearheaded the campaign to bring down Empire ringleader Zeus. Zeus remains alive, and Lady Q has taken to isolating herself. Our mole has been hearing that Lady Q might have had relations with Zeus without knowing who he was.

Meanwhile, our agent aside to keep tabs on Emily San Juan has returned to office. The San Juan residence was burned down, he reports, by men from Empire. According to our mole, he tried to follow the San Juan’s to the Aviejo residence, but security is tighter in Mr. Aviejo’s house.

Actors Gabby Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez were both offered a new role—to become the country's ambassadors for peace.

According to TV Patrol World's report aired last night, September 20, Presidential Peace Adviser Hermogenes Esperon Jr. issued the invitation to the two actors during the ‘Run for Peace' activity, which was part of the nationwide observance of peace month held every September.

Gabby and Richard joined more than 4,000 participants of the 10-kilometer fun run from Quirino Grandstand in Manila to the Cultural Center in Pasay City and back to the grandstand.

Some also says that her next project will be with Richard Gutierrez, they'll be doing Captain Barbell Meets Darna.

Is there a rivalry between the two actors?!

Anyway, before anything else Marian is planning to rest and take some time off from work. She's also planning to visit her father and several relatives in Spain.

Richard Gutierrez does not want to label relationship with KC Concepcion

Looking forward to Richard Gutierrez in the second movie they ni KC Concepcion after Time For The Fist, now that the actress is back again in the Philippines. But before the movie in GMA Films, Richard excited on his first with KC in Vienna, Austria, for a special screening of For the First Time.

We're all excited in our trip in Vienna because she [KC] was the only one who made it through in LA and San Francisco screening. I was not able to go there due to my hectic work schedule here in Manila. But now, we're looking forward to our trip in Vienna together, "beginning with Richard her to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the inauguration of Flawless Moments in Greenhills, San Juan City, on September 14.

Are they going to extend their stay in Vienna?

"You know what, I really do hope we could extend our stay there coz there are really a few places that we wanted to visit. But we're going to enjoy the moment that we have in Vienna and we ' re gonna have the most out of it. And we're gonna make sure that the Filipinos will have a good time, and we're gonna have a good time. "

What's the real score between him and now KC?

"Well, now, like what we always say, we too busy with work but we still find time to see each other," says Richard. "We still find time to meet up and talk. But now our schedules are really, really bad, and we do not want to rush things. It's better that we take it step by step. And if any be the final decision that happens , E, you also the first else. "

What Is the status of their KC? Are they dating exclusively, or a mutual understanding that?

"we do not want to put a title to it, you know? If whatever we have, just 'when we together, we just enjoy each moment. Just don't want to label it right now."

There were news that Piolo Pascual wanted to be paired with KC Concepcion. What can you say Richard?

By: Mario E. Bautista

KC Concepcion returned from the premiere nights of “For the First Time” in the U.S. last Saturday. And you know the first thing she did? She had dinner with Richard Gutierrez at Bonifacio High Street in The Fort. Those who saw them say it’s apparent that they missed each other so much, which is not surprising since they’ve been together constantly for the past several weeks.

Next Thursday, September 25, they will have another chance to travel together for the premiere of their movie in Vienna, Austria. They will be traveling around Europe for a week before returning to Manila. They’re scheduled to start shooting their Valentine movie with GMA FIlms by the end of November, to be written and directed by Joey Reyes who’s also shooting “Magkaibigan” and “One Night Only” for the Metro Manila Filmfest. There are talks that they would also shoot their second movie partly abroad.

So, which famous city abroad will be their choice? Is it true they’ll shoot it in Paris where KC studied for four years? “Sa akin, kahit saan pa i-shoot ‘yan, okay lang,” says Richard. “The more important thing is that KC and I will be together again.”

Richard Gutierrez feels no pressure about his second movie with KC Concepcion

Richard Gutierrez is scheduled to go to Vienna, Austria on the third week of September with KC Concepcion to attend the premiere night of their first movie together, For the First Time, which is already on its third week here in the country.

Although they're already finished doing their first movie together, Richard says that he and KC are still in constant communication.

"We communicate just like any other normal person with friends, we communicate. Nagko-Almost everyday we communicate," said the 24-year-old actor during the inauguration of Flawless Moments in Greenhills, San Juan City on September 14.

The Codename: Asero star said being updated with each other is still very important since they will do a movie with GMA Films. "Now, there we work in progress as being 'yong script, being' yong location. We always communicate about our next movie and our trip to Vienna," said Richard.

Talking about their second movie, do they feel any pressure in surpassing the success of their first movie For the First Time with Star Cinema?

Richard replied, "Well, I think, that's the main idea in doing that[the movie] in Star [Cinema] and the GMA Films is to not have a rivalry or to compare one another. I think , GMA Films will go on a different direction there for the movie does not really compare him to. And with its own stand 'yong the Star Cinema and its own stand' yong on GMA Films. But both films, will be given much effort and attention to. "

NO PERSONAL issues with Dingdong. During the interview, Startalk reporter Gorgy Rula told that Richard-Dingdong Dantes who is constantly being pitted against him-watched For the First Time. Upon hearing this, Richard recalled that his director in the movie, Bb. Joyce Bernal, mentioned that she would tell Dingdong to watch the film. Joyce is Dingdong's director in Dyesebel.

"Well, first watched teh movie, after the premiere night, Direk Joyce said that he should ask Dingdong and Marian [Rivera] to watch their movie. I want to thank him also for watching. He actually texted me and he said that he liked 'yong movie, so I'm thankful, "Richard related.

This just shows that Richard and Dingdong really do not have personal issues with each other. In fact, Richard he assured the media, "Dingdong and I were okey, no problem in turn one another. course 'rivalry that's been created by the media, those were just rumors. But I and Dong, We don't have personal rivalry with one another. "

Can KC top herself?

Can KC top herself?

I’m truly happy for the success of KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez’s movie, For the First Time. I know the two worked extremely hard to do a movie that they can be proud of and one that people would actually watch. There were many factors, not their doing but proved to be intense pressure points for the two; it was almost impossible for the two to star in a movie project together as both belong to two fiercely competitive networks. But it happened, so it could not not work. A mild hit would be a flop, after all it was a dream tandem.

This was KC’s first movie. She is the Megastar daughter. Upon conception she was a certified star. How could the movie not be a huge hit?

Richard is one of the country’s hottest young leading men. He has had a string of hits to his name. How can the movie not break records?

It was scary considering that they were following a huge box-office hit in A Very Special Love, a feel-good movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo. They had to outgross A Very Special Love.

The pressure was horrible. Both KC and Richard were nervous, even anxious. Nobody knew what was going to happen. Expectations were insanely high. How can royalties fail? And failure here was anything less than a gigantic hit. Star Cinema did everything it could to produce a movie worth watching and promoted the movie like there was no other.

For the First Time has on its team Bb. Joyce Bernal, a certified hitmaker, brilliant DOP Shayne Sarte, a formidable creative and production staff and actors that lent support to KC and Richard.

The premiere night had the first indication that this was a huge box-office hit. The Megastar herself was proud of her daughter’s work. The good Sen. Francis Pangilinan was happy with the movie. Fans were at Megamall Cinema 9 and 10 as early as 2 p.m. There was a mob at the premiere night of For the First Time. But skeptics still said that it was a premiere night so naturally there was a sea of people, curious to see KC, Richard and all the other stars. Would this translate to box-office success? Of course there were no clear answers yet.

Most people who had anything to do with the movie were still nervous. Anything could still happen. What if a big storm hits Manila? Or even a coup d’etat? What if people turn out to be uninterested? The night of the 28th of August until theaters opened on the 29th must have been one of the longest nights in Richard and KC’s life.

I saw the Megastar invite everyone to support her daughter’s movie. I started to get text messages from Annabelle Rama and Ruffa Gutierrez reminding friends that the movie was opening on the 29th. KC and Richard got the unequivocal support of their families and friends.

In the afternoon of Aug. 29, I called Roxy Liquigan, promo director of Star Cinema and supervising producer of The Buzz without letting Roxy realize my jitters. I casually asked how the movie was doing in the first few hours of its first day. “It’s a huge, huge hit!” Roxy declared. “Thank you,” I muttered — catching my breath — as if I were KC.

People's Journal
Bong De Leon

HEARD that Heart Evangelista could hardly believe she did the sizzling kissing scenes in “Codename: Asero” with the new Golden Boy of Philippine movies, Richard Gutierrez.

What’s good about having paired with Richard, his leading ladies never feel uncomfortable. He is never branded as a bold actor as he looks gentle, maybe even if he takes off his clothes.

Meanwhile, people are now looking forward to the next Richard-KC Concepcion starrer which will happen this time under GMA Films. Their “For The First Time” under Star Cinema is a certified hit, chalking up more than P100 million in just 3 weeks of showing.

Since they’re now very much comfortable with each other, fans are expecting to see more daring scenes in their next outing together. Maybe, more torrid than what Richard did with Heart in “Codename: Asero.”

"For me, the team really concentrated tempering the cosmetics of steel. Sometimes we no longer too ... Of course the ratings, but we do not base it there, we base it on quality," said Richard.

To prove that he is serious in doing steel, Richard said that he always makes sure that he sees the final output of their team's hard work. This is also to prove to the audience that his portrayal of the main characters steel does not stop after the taping.

He even narrated one occasion when he missed watching steel. "I had one week that I wasn't able to watch Asero coz of my work schedule. Had to let it recorded on DVD because anywhere I go, always the full force of the people,' a nice welcome episode last night, the happening is just so great'.I'm very proud of steel now. We've been working very hard [for this] . "

Richard also said that he is glad that they were able to maintain the excitement that they started in their pilot episode. "I'm proud we're able to sustain the good quality," he said. "The beauty start of Asero and we were able to sustain it. For me, it's just very good."

He added, "It's so much fun for me now doing Asero. After the movie [For the First Time], as there was a time every day, movie-movie-steel-steel, sometimes really exhausted me. But I arriving in steel, inspired that inspired me when we conducted the action sequences. Coz of Direk Mark [Reyes], he allows me to share my visions of how to do the scenes. Though what I wakeful, really missing . "

Codename: Asero is scheduled to run until November this year, according to Richard. After this, he expects to do a more exciting project, which he does not want to disclose yet.

The 24-year-old actor just told the media, "Oh yeah, I'm so excited for the next one! There are two projects in learning and we discuss later with GMA what happens . But both projects that are line-up for me really very exciting. "

Successful movies. Aside from Asero, Richard is also happy about his first movie with KC Concepcion titled For the First Time. He even reported that its premiere nights abroad, particularly in Los Angeles and San Francisco, were as successful as the premiere night they had here in Manila.

Unfortunately, it was only KC who witnessed these events since he has previous engagements left here in Manila. Richard related, "I'm jealous of her as she was there in San Francisco and then in LA 'Then she called me while she was there on premiere night.

"Too successful 'yong night premiere in Los Angeles, the many Filipinos. Even my titas and their friends flew into LA just to watch [the movie]. Some Filipinos from Las Vegas, who drive to LA to see the premiere night . You know, I missed out, but I'm very happy for KC that she was able to experience that. "

With his team-up with KC, Richard would like to express his gratitude towards the young actress. "I want to thank her," he said. "The amount he shinare to the public, he opened himself to her public.

"I'm very proud of her also. I'm very proud of her that she was strong and she has done 'those responsibilities for her,' First thing it and she did so well as an actress, I'm very proud of her. "

On September 25, Richard is scheduled to go to Vienna, Austria with KC for the premiere of For the First Time. Then, by December, these two young Actors will start filming their second movie, this time with GMA-7, which is slated for the'09 Valentine's week.

Before the interview ended, Richard clarified that he will not transfer to ABS-CBN.

"Did you, have been perhaps to confuse people since I was guesting in ABS-CBN constantly to promote the movie. I think people were just confused and they were not used to seeing me in ABS-CBN so they got confused. But the real thing is that was the agreement between GMA 7 and ABS-CBN that when I do my movie with Star [Cinema], I will be able to promote ... It was an agreement, it was an agreement. "

For their movie with GMA-7, Richard also expects a full support from ABS-CBN. "I think ABS-CBN will do their part. I'm sure they will help us also. That's good, there was a connection' of both networks. I hope it continues like that," said Richard.

Richard, KC in Vienna

WE asked how Richard Gutierrez KC Concepcion is doing these days? "She's still in the U.S. to attend the premiere nights of 'For the First Time' (in Los Angeles and San Francisco), "he says. "But we keep in touch. I envy her coz she called me up during the premiere night in LA and excited because she meet a lot of people. People coming from various places like Las Vegas and San Diego, they watch the premiere. I'm so happy for KC because she witnessed the success of our movie abroad. But we'll be together at the premiere in Vienna. We're leaving on September 25 and we'll be gone for one week. "

His rivalry with Dingdong Dantes will surely heat up further now that he's been tapped by brandy emperor to be their endorser for their solo P100 million to Business Success campaign, what with Dingdong endorsing a competing brand. What can he say about this?

"Healthy competition between Dingdong and I just so okay because we remain good friends," he says. "Just me, a long time endorser of the emperor and I was included here, my Dad and my brothers. Another, the real success is in the emperor. "

Business Success in the campaign is truly laudable in that it encourages entrepreneurship. All you have to do is look inside your emperor bottle cap to find out if you won. There will be 50 winners of P250, 000 each to start a business but there are also winners of P10, 000 to P100, 000. Each big winner will be encouraged to join a seminar on how to start their own business. "There'll also be an emperor Hotline where people setting up their own business can call and make consultations," says Richard. "Emperor will help them every step of the way and monitor how their business is going."

In his case, given the chance, what kind of business he would put up? "I'd like to have an Internet cafe, which is very timely in this Era of information technology. Many people in the province to unprecedented access to the Internet and it'd help them if they accessed Internet cafe. "

Does he really drink brandy emperor? "I do, with my family, if we're all free on Sundays and when there's a celebration, but I mix it with pineapple juice."

Richard is rejoicing because his "Codename: Asero" continues to enjoy high ratings. He and leading lady Heart Evangelista just did their first hot love scene together. This was shot in a beach resort in Bataan and the place is so idyllic and beautiful. "It is the setting in Hawaii because of beauty," he says. "Inabot of several takes because we all want the love scene to be perfect. The love scene will be seen tonight, Thursday, so do not miss it. "

Asero wants to be who he was before: to be Grecko Abesamis again. And he finally gets his wish-just not in the way that he expected.

Ms. Emily San Juan is proving to be the Achilles' heel of Empire's Project Asero. As reported by our numerous spies, the woman single-handedly destroyed the programming within the cyborg's brain and restored Grecko Abesamis's memories-with a little help from a conveniently placed generator.

Of course, Ms. San Juan is hardly to take the full credit to this oversight in the Project Asero plan. Dayze reports that no one has foreseen Asero regaining Grecko's memories; they all believed previously that every little bit of Grecko has already died. Currently, her orders from Zeus are to isolate the problem with Asero's wireframes and to hide it from the other Empire bosses. Plus, she also had to give Zeus a gadget that would enable him to stop Grecko from acting on his own.

Currently, no one knows the status of Ms. San Juan-not since the incident at the hospital where deceased members of the Black Hand terrorist chapter was picked up by the police. But it is found out, by one of our moles, that she is now being sought by a man named Dave Aviejo.

An Advocate mole reports that Lady Q seems to have taken the attack against Asero personally, and she is ordering her top agents-including Rookie Beat Box-to investigate what happened at the hospital. And Rock Star has found out about Project Asero, and our mole assumes that he has already told Lady Q of his suspicions.

Meanwhile, Empire remains oblivious to what is currently going on with Asero. According to our spy, Empire is focusing on their business in illegal arms trading.

And an incident at a restaurant was tagged by one of our electronic blotters; an incident that involved Grecko's parents and a woman we believe may be Lady Q.

TV Ratings (Sept. 5-8): "Asero" topples "Dyesebel" for No. 1; "Betty La Fea" debuts at No. 5

Article posted August 29, 2008

Dayze Tagimoro reports that she has been spending less time with Asero since Zeus decided to bring the cyborg home. As such, our reports are now limited to eyewitnesses who managed to catch a glimpse of the human robot. Lucky for us, the cyborg Asero has been out and about this past week.

An eyewitness reports that Asero has been living the life of Grecko Abesamis, the man whose body was used for Project Asero. But it seems that the robot has been exhibiting human emotions at an alarming pace. Dayze has reported previously that Zeus requested an emotion emulator for Asero, but the emotions currently being expressed by the cyborg is not completely the emulator’s work alone.

Our agent reports that Asero may have retained more human qualities than they originally thought. Dayze also reports that Asero’s relationship with one Claire Morales, the cyborg daughter of one of Empire’s top bosses. She adds that Asero has been asking about love a lot, lately.

Meanwhile, our Advocate mole has been keeping a relatively quiet profile. His last report tells us that so far, no one is the wiser with regards to the changes in Grecko Abesamis—formerly Agent Phoenix. The only interesting thing that happened at his front, he adds, is their head of operations’ interest in Grecko’s father: Ibsen Abesamis.

Lastly, our agent keeping tabs on Ms. Emily San Juan reports that the woman is frequently seen with the cyborg Asero. When he was able to get close to the two, he overheard the cyborg asking the woman to help him remember.

It seems as if Asero is beginning to think for himself. What this means for Empire and Advocate, we’ll soon find out.
