Vice Ganda might just turn out to be this year’s breakout action star, with the comedian hinting on his plan to do an action-comedy caper.


The actor-TV host admits that the idea has been inspired by his “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy” character Peter Jackstone, who was depicted in the movie as a race car driver.

“Gusto kong karerin ‘yon,” Vice Ganda told

“Noon ko pa ni re-request ‘yun, ‘yung medyo may pagka-’Fast and the Furious.’ Dati nagkarera na ang mga kabayo, ngayon naman kotse. Para ma-cater ko ang gusto ng mga babae, lalaki, bakla at tomboy para lahat ng market (covered),” he added.

“Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy” has now breached the P400-million mark, making it among the biggest earners in the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival.

On the TV front, Vice Ganda is continuing his partnership with ABS-CBN, having signed a new contract with the network giant just recently.

The 37-year-old revealed that this early, network executives are already asking him if he is open to doing additional TV shows.

“Tinanong lang nila ako kung aside from ‘GGV’ (‘Gandang Gabi Vice’) and ‘It’s Showtime,’ kung mayroon pa akong ibang gustong gawin. Sabi ko kontento na ako,” he said.

He teased, however, that he might just tweak his approach to one of his shows in the coming months.


“Mayroon lang akong gustong bagong atake sa ‘GGV’ na gawin at open naman sila sa ganoon,” he shared. Manila Bulletin
