Another Pinoy cast in Hollywood film, ‘Here Comes the Boom’
MANILA, Philippines — Half-Filipino actor Reggie Lee is also cast in the Hollywood film, “Here Comes the Boom.”
As previously reported, the movie slated for 2012 release, will star Kevin James, Salma Hayek and Charice. The Filipina singing sensation recently announced that she has finished shooting her part in the film.
In an interview with ABS-CBN North America Bureau, July 3, Lee has only nice words for his kababayan, Charice.
“She’s unbelievably lovely. She’s a tough girl. I always think of her as still being young. ‘Po’ nang ‘po.’ I told her, ‘You don’t have to say that to me. I feel really old if you keep doing that.’ But she said it’s just how she grew up,” Lee related.
Lee has been exploring Hollywood in the past 15 years. He has played various Asian roles in Hollywood but it is his first time to play a Filipino in “Here Comes the Boom.”
