Repost: John Lloyd Cruz Cries Foul Over Using His One Scene to Highlight 'Culion'

John Lloyd Cruz wants to make it clear that his appearance in the film Culion is only a cameo, just in case the recently released trailer of the movie led audiences to expect more— the actor himself told ANCX Tuesday evening. 

Cruz’s face showing up at the end of the trailer of the new indie film, written by Ricky Lee and directed by Alvin Yapan, sparked many enthusiastic reports online announcing the actor’s return to the movies. 

The excitement over a comeback film is understandable; it’s been two years since his last big screen project, Finally Found Someone, came out in theaters — and for some time it did seem like Cruz didn’t have any more interest in reviving his acting career. And then the Culion trailer came.

But the actor didn’t want to give his followers the wrong idea. Cruz said he really only appears in one scene in Culion. “I thought including me in the teaser was preemptive. It was the opposite of what I actually requested and agreed on,” the actor told ANCX in an SMS message.

“But as much as I am drawn to the idea of letting my work, of any kind, have its own life and take its own course in terms of output (unmindful of how it mutates, grows and sometimes gets diminished) I am also wary of misleading an audience," continued Cruz. "That wouldn’t be fair. Hence, I felt compelled to clarify my participation in the film.”

Culion is a period piece set in the once popular leper colony of the same name. It stars Iza Calzado, Meryl Soriano and Jasmine Curtis-Smith. The film has been submitted for consideration to this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival. The trailer was released Monday, September 30, alarming Cruz who is currently out of the country.

    2. Laging hinahanap si JL, hindi nawawalan ng balita sa kanya. Sa lahat ng nawala, siya lang un hinahanap.

    3. Good for him to clarify the matter before the movie is released so moviegoers won't cry foul na cameo lang pala siya sa movie. Nevertheless, the movie still looks interesting.

    4. Wary of misleading the audience????? E yun nga ang work ng mga actor to mislead the audience!!!! Puro FANTASY rom-com mga pelikula niya kaya nga MALAKI MGA KINITA!!!!

    5. 732 thats not his point. He is wary of misleading an audience who might watch the movie thinking he has a bigger role.

    7. Hindi naman ako manonood nito kasi di ko na gusto si JLC. Pero tama naman siya, misleading sa mga fanneys niya ang trailer. Akala nila mapapanood nila si JLC ulit, eh baka split second lang siya sa movie.

    8. Ok lang yan 8:16 ndi karin naman nya gusto

    9. 2:05 LOL ang lame naman ng comeback. let me guess, isa ka sa mga fanney? Obviously di ko kelangan si JLC na gustuhin ako.😅 Baka siya ang may kelangan na gustuhin pa siya ng mga tao, at slightly nagbabalik showbiz kahit sinuka na niya dati

  5. I get his point but maybe, just maybe including him to the trailer would spark the viewer’s interest and curiousity hence, point is to sell the film. Maybe his part though a cameo is that important kaya siya nasa trailer. Parang tulong niya na din sana sa creative team, sa director and producer considering the fact na kesyo cameo he is still part pf the film. Naging nega and user tuloy ang dating ng team and the movie dahil sa statement niya. Can’t help not to compare him with much more veteran stars like, example (example lang not name dragging ha) sina Richard Gomez at Dawn Zulueta, nag cameo dati sa movie nina Kath and Daniel (She’s Dating the Gangster) partida wala sila sa trailer at mallshows ha, but if you were able to see the whole film, sa kanila umikot ang story. Never naman sila nag reklamo at nag pa interview, yung dalawa di hamak na mas beterano pa kay JLC. Ka umay din si Kuya. Mag hiatus ka dyan hangga’t gusto mo.

    1. Baka naman hindi na nagpabayad si JL don at usapan eh huwag na ipalabas sa trailer un eksena niya. Tutal ekstra lang naman. Pang gulat na lang sa manonood. Kaso di nasunod. At FYI hindi cameo si Dawn at Richard don sa KN movie, supporting cast sila. Hindi ekstra.

      Delete
    2. 1:18, deception, do you know what that means? JLC has a cameo role but they made It look like he has a major role in the movie to draw interest. That's deception, plain and simple. They have Used him for their interest and for their cheap promo.

      Delete
    3. U can't compare richard and dawn situation to this one coz d di naman sila nilagay sa trailer. JL's scene inclusion in the trailer is really misleading - a mktg ploy.

    2. eh di sana di na lang sya nag cameo! parang di nya pa alam ang kalakaran ng showbiz! since he ‘was’ a big star the producers will always use him to promote their movie..nothing wrong w/ it kung gusto nya tumulong sa mga kakilala nya..nag inarte pa itong kalbo na to!

      Delete
    3. yun na nga eh, "tumulong"na nga, siya pa masama ngayon na umaangal siya, eh pano pag madami manuod tapos high expectation sa kanya because of that teaser siya ang dudumugin kasi in a way nag connive siya sa panloloko if di niya nilinaw early on, buti na rin sinabi niya.

      Delete
    4. John Lloyd is not new to showbiz nong inalok sya sa role pumayag sya,kilala nya yong producer. So alam na nya beforehand na may mangyayari na ganyan..

    5. 2:35 nothing wrong with deception? My dear... use your brain. There’s a thin line between ‘promo’ and just plain deception.

    2. 7:15, mukhang ikaw ang nangangailangan sa comments mo. Mayaman si JLC, hindi importante sa kanya ang bayad. Maraming celebrities na sikat na may cameo para makatulong lang. In JLC's case, isinama siya sa trailer, implying that he has a bigger role which is plain deception.

    3. 7:15 ndi yan ang point. Basahin mo ulit.

  19. Tama lang si JLC. Very misleading sa trailer eh. Dapat hindi ganon kase matatalino naman ang viewers lalo na kapag napanood na buong movie. Sa 1st day lang sila bebenta pero pagtagal waley na kapag nalaman na cameo lang si JLC. Kung sya yung direktor na pumatay ng aso, dapat hindi yan makapasok sa MMFF!!

    1. True,matatalino na ngayon ang moviegoers.. Kaya alam nila yan na guest role lng sya. Kasi kung lead actor sya malamang nasa unahan sya ng trailer kaso nasa dulo ng trailer..
