MANILA — Vice President Jejomar Binay wants Kapuso heartthrob Alden Richards to portray him should a Binay biopic be made in the future.
According to Binay, there’s nothing impossible in movies.
“Sa sine, wala namang imposible. Itinutugma kung ano ‘yung kailangan,” Binay said in a press conference Tuesday. “Kaya nabanggit ko [si Alden] kasi sikat na sikat. Importante sa sine ‘yung sikat na artista para at least may crowd na darating dahil sa kaniya.”
(In movies, there’s nothing impossible. They will match what needs to be matched… So I said Alden Richards because he’s really famous. Being a famous celebrity is important in movies, at least a crowd will be there.)
With the success of the AlDub love team of Richards and “Yaya Dub” played by Maine Mendoza, reporters asked Binay if he wants Mendoza to play his wife Elenita should a biopic happen in the future.
“Itatanong ko mamaya (I’ll ask her later),” was the Vice President’s reply.
Binay openly said he hopes to bring in the AlDub love team as political endorsers, but just last week, Sen. Tito Sotto announced that both Mendoza and Richards will not be joining any political campaign and will not be endorsing any political candidate or party.
Sotto has been part of the longest running noontime variety show ‘Eat Bulaga’ where Aldub started.
