Play Up or Else

No one can remain on the pedestal forever. Celebrity status is indeed measured by the flops and successes of projects even if celebrities have made names for themselves. The more flops a celebrity has, the fewer projects he/she will be given. By contrast, for every successful project in ratings and revenues, regardless of length in the industry, will mean more projects and subsequently, more money.

So as not to be complacent, the top executives called Longtime Actor (LA) to a meeting to ask about his career plans. LA has been with his team for many years and while he remains an icon for the network, the management is worried as his last TV projects have performed way below expectations. Moreover, his movies have not scored much in the box-office unlike the previous years when his name would be synonymous to a hit. Because of such performance, his endorsements have lessened.

The management could not help but compare the state of the career of LA with that of the rejuvenated status of Network Talent (NT). Years ago, the career of NT hit rock bottom. Although he was enjoying a career as an actor, NT decided to try his other talents. In the process, his visibility diminished and he lost his appeal. When he finally realized what he wanted to do, NT patiently engaged in projects until he found the right endorsements, movies, and TV projects. The management could not help but think that NT and another hot actor have overshadowed LA in terms of appearances and network pride.

The talk progressed and the weaknesses in the career of LA had to be addressed. First, LA has been too aloof with fans as well as fellow actors. Whenever he is teased to a co-worker, he remains stoic. Then, there’s the rumor that cannot seem to die down, regardless of denials and lack of evidence. Finally, LA has not really changed his image since he started in the business. He’s still taking the safe path and at certain times, maintaining his righteous image that sometimes turns off fans.

As the network knows the value of LA, his handlers were further instructed to think of ways to improve or reinvent the image of LA. Only after a career makeover will he have solo projects again. For the moment until his team fixes his image, he will just have to be content with a few hosting gigs and occasionally appearing in shows of the network.

    1. LA's problem? Be real sana siya. Audience can see through fakery kaya. Plus, boring siya. Pabebe pa.

    2. Ditto, 2:14! Fake relationships may have worked during his time, but by now his fan base has matured. Di na bumebenta ang fake image niya.

    3. @ JAn 30 2:14am. Pabebe? Sino yan si K? LOL. He's never been pabebe eversince. He's not fake, dahil all actors and staff alike would attest that he's a good person.

    4. Ay totoo yang aloof sa fans. Ng shooting na saamin yan. Sabi ng mga lumapit, ni hindi man lng dw nangiti kahit konti sa mga nanonood at fans nya. Ayun yung bidang babae n lng pinansin nung mga tao. Taray ng lolo nyo di ba!

      Delete
  2. P. Sawa na tao kasi nothing changed with him, sa personal life dahil wala naman love life. And also same pabebe roles pa rin sa edad nya, bumabata lang leading ladies kaya medyo yucky na.

    1. These actors doesn't realize that there fame and fortune came from their fans!

    2. P was never aloof sa fans. Very accommodating nga eh.

      Delete
    3. kahit sobrang love ko yan si P aloof tlaga sya sa fans... nakita ko sa personal yung face nya habang nagkakagulo yung fans, OMG ang smirk nya at look na condescending d ko kinaya, parang tingin na nandidiri o laughing inside na uto uto ang mga tao

      Delete
    4. pero kaahit ganun naman wala na sya kailangan patunayan eh...

      Delete
    5. Actually hindi siya snob, ang daming tao na meet siya at laging sinasabi na mabait siya.

      Delete
    6. nawi weird an lang sya kasi he is so humble di pa rin sya sanay sa adulation ng fans tbh he is one of the most humble, kindest in showbiz.at mapag kawanggawa talaga yan..

  6. LA - P NT - J. Ayan P kailangan mo mag-overhaul sa image mo.

  7. True. Bihira makitaan ng pics with fans

    1. Picture na nga lang, wala pa. Perhaps its time to just ease into retirement if there's nothing left to offer his fans.

      Delete
  8. Why need to reinvent? He’s already an icon. Retire nalang siguro

    ReplyDelete

    1. He had reached his peak..it's time to go down..

      Delete
    2. so he can offer something new and be relevant that is if he still wants to be in the showbizness

      Delete
    3. True. Established naman na ang name nya sa showbiz. Time to take different path and give way to other youngsters. Or maybe take veteran roles instead of pilit pang ipang leading man

  9. Ganyan talaga ang buhay..weather weather lang..

  10. Who’s J? Guys?? Please..

    ReplyDelete

    1. Si J yung kasabayan din nya. Hit yung teleserye nya & kahit sinong actress, he shines kasi magaling. Kaliwat kanan nga ang projects nya. Hindi nawawalan.
      Yung another hot actor, I’m thinking of D or comeback star na J??

      Delete
  11. P & J both KAF. I think kasi yung issue sa kanya na hindi maalis. Ngayon kasi, yung image big deal sa viewers, fans & netizens.

    ReplyDelete
  12. This is not P. He has always been kind to his fans. He has 2 regular shows and so many endorsements. Jeez.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 2:23, yan ang akala mo. Pero hindi tunay na mabait sa mga fans si P. Si J ang mabait at mababa ang loob, kaya kahit anong pang mangyari, nakaka bounce back siya sa career niya.

      Delete
  13. P and J? Actually another J took his crown before, but now nawala na din nag hiatus. Another actor they're probably talking about here is C.

    ReplyDelete
  14. P. There’s not much reinvention that can be done. He’s just finally reached the end of his career😕 in fairness he’s done it all, succesful acting and music career, won awards, etc. it’s just time for him to move on and let the new generation of actors take over. Anwyays he’s starting to become successful in another field so he should just focus on that.

  15. I think kailangan syang bigyan ng more challenging roles. Masyadong clean-cut yung binibigay na roles kay P, or pakilig, e hindi na bagay kasi he's aging. And obviously, bawas na ang kinang nya.

    ReplyDelete
  16. true, wala na ang kinang ni P because he reached the peak of his career kaya pede na syang mag slow down total naman he's aging na rin, pang-supporting roles na lang. what goes up must come down ika nga.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think if he tries to be daring sa mga roles nya (gaya ni T) it will surely give his career a turbo boost!!! Yan kasi ang matagal nang wish ng fans nya eh.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Si P, tanders na kasi siya and nothing lasts forever. He can retire na kasi mayaman na siya.

    ReplyDelete
  19. P and J
    Matanda narin si P for the roles he gets. Pabebe pa minsan ang loveteam nya.

    ReplyDelete
  20. P & J, Dapat kay P magiba ng focus try niya ibang fields like Sports or reality show, yun at yun nalang kasi di na ok kasi pabata ng pabata mga leading lady niya.

    ReplyDelete
  21. LA - P parati kaseng calculated mga galaw nya kaya ang boring nya. ewan nga bakit nagkaka projects pa sya
    J - he's a good actor

    ReplyDelete
  22. LA - P wala na talaga siyang bagong maioffer he really needs to reinvent.
    NT - J grabe kasi ang intensity niya pagdating sa mabibigat na eksena damang dama.sobrang galing kc tapos may chemistry kahit kaninong actress.
    Another Actor is S kaloka din siya ngayon nwala ung mga pacute at pa tweetums niya dati. inis ang naramdaman ko sa kanya sa current show niya. hahahaha

    2. Iba magdeliver ng lines si NT,yon dama mo talaga. Atchaka facial expression nya, eye and body movement pagumarte lahat yon nagflow naturally. Si LA parang conscious lagi sa looks nya at parang hirap din sya magtransition from serious to comedic side...kahit minsan nagpapatawa sya yon tono ng boses at facial expression seryoso pa din, kaya di ko sya masyado bet pagromcom. Si NT kahit saan genre nageexcel sya.

      Delete
  23. All he needs is a good movie project with a good LT. He is still one of the best out there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Minsan when i see LA on tv parang just getting by na lang; kelangan siguro ng strong project kung anu man yon, para mabuhayan. Good luck LA, sana makita mo kung anuman para balik alindog at gana sa gawain.

    ReplyDelete
  25. P either has to go more daring in his roles or play kontrabida! Something very different!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Si P nag plateau na ang career. Si J, intense na actor, realistic at natural ang atake sa mga roles niya kaya hindi siya nakakasawa.

      Delete
    2. i agree. y not play a kontrabida for a change dba. cguro sa movie muna, tas kng patok sa soaps naman.

      Delete
  26. LA - P
    NT - J
    Another actor - D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Is it really P, the P that everyone knows? Pero he is an icon na and wala NG dapat patunayan. For me he's like one of those respected veterans already. And he never had bad image to fans fr what I read.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes though, magiging has been na sya if he didn't reinvent himself kasi lahat ng previous works niya from movies and TV shows, halos lahat flop. Kaya kahit gaano pa syaka icon kung di naman kumikita yung mg shows niya, wala din.

      Delete
  28. Give him the right role that will showcase his acting. Stop putting him on ROMCOM projects with so-so pabebe actresses. He is a good actor but the network keeps giving him comedic and pa cute roles.
