Derek Ramsay "not bitter or mad" about being replaced as Bea Alonzo's leading man in Star Cinema movie

Melba R. Llanera

Naka-five shooting days na pala si Derek Ramsay sa pelikula ng Star Cinema na pagtatambalan sana nila ni Bea Alonzo at ididirek ni Olivia Lamasan.

Pero pinalitan na nga siya sa naturang proyekto ng film arm ng ABS-CBN nang pumirma si Derek ng three-year exclusive contract sa TV5.

Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay Derek sa telepono noong Linggo, April 22, kinumpirma niya sa amin na hindi na siya ang leading man ni Bea sa pelikula ng Star Cinema.

Aniya, “Hindi siya na-shelved, I think papalitan ako.

“It was Star Cinema’s management that decided it.

“I think it was announced in the press na hindi na tuloy sa akin yung project so I understand… I’m not bitter or mad.”

Bagamat nanghihinayang siya na naalis siya sa nasabing pelikula, nagpapasalamat pa rin si Derek na kahit sa maikling panahon ay naging parte siya nito.

“Siyempre I was disappointed, I was really into my character already and I really like the story of the movie.

“But you know, they are professional in this business, they know what’s best.

“Naka-five days [shooting ako], pero ang dami kong natutunan.

“I worked with the probably number one director in the Philippines—Direk Olive Lamasan.

“I’ve learned a lot from her, she taught me a lot of things, she spoke to me.

“I really think of the positive on it. I don’t want to focus on the negative.

“Ang dami kong natutunan, I got the chance to work with her [Direk Olive] and maybe in the future makatrabaho ko siya.

“I also love working with Bea, napaka-professional at napakahusay.

“So, yun lang sayang dun, I’m not gonna work with Bea [again].”

Nagkasama na noon sina Derek at Bea sa pelikulang And I Love You So (2009).

FROM SAM TO DEREK AND BACK TO SAM? Kay Sam Milby dapat ang role na gagampanan ni Derek sa Star Cinema moviena ito, pero nang magdesisyon si Sam na subukan ang kanyang kapalaran sa Hollywood ay napunta ang role kay Derek.

Ngayong inalis na si Derek sa pelikula, may ilang nagsasabi na baka ibalik daw ang role kay Sam na posibleng bumalik sa Pilipinas sa susunod na buwan, May.


Ano ang masasabi ni Derek dito?

“It’s fine, I’ll be very happy for Sam.

“I even told Sam, sayang yung movie na yun kasi napakaganda ng istorya.

“So, I’ll be happy kung mababalik yun sa kanya.


“Sam is one of my few friends in the industry, I’ll be very happy if it’s going back to him," saad niya.
MOVIE WITH ANNE AND KC. Bagamat hindi na tuloy ang pagsasama nila ni Bea sa pelikula, may ibang pelikula namang sisimulan si Derek.

Ito ay ang Nothing Compares To U ng Viva Films kung saan makakapareha niya sina Anne Curtis at KC Concepcion.

“Well, I’m excited,” sambit ng aktor.

“Si Anne nakatrabaho ko na and napaka-successful ng movie na nagawa namin [No Other Woman].

“So lagi namang masaya na katrabaho si Anne, so wala ang nerbiyos ko.

Derek Ramsay Replaced as Bea Alonzo's Love Interest in Upcoming Movie


Derek Ramsay Replaced as Bea Alonzo's Love Interest in Upcoming Movie

The actor says he'll be happy if Sam Milby takes his place and that he isn't bitter about Star Cinema's decision.

Actor Derek Ramsay, who recently signed an exclusive contract with TV5, says he has been replaced in an upcoming movie for Star Cinema, PEP.ph reports. Derek would have starred as the love interest of actress Bea Alonzo. 

"Hindi siya [shelved]; I think papalitan ako (The movie wasn't shelved. I think I'm getting replaced)," the star explained in a phone interview with PEP.ph. "It was Star Cinema’s management that decided it. I think it was announced in the press na hindi na tuloy sa akin yung project, so I understand. I’m not bitter or mad."

While Star Cinema has made no announcements just yet, Derek expressed his thoughts on rumors that his role might go back to actor Sam Milby. Sam had originally been tapped for the movie before he left for Hollywood in February. "Sam is one of my few friends in the industry," said Derek. "I’ll be very happy if it’s going back to him."

Although Derek will no longer be starring in a film with Bea, he is currently working on Nothing Compares To U under Viva Films for which he has two leading ladies, Anne Curtis and KC Concepcion. 

"I’m excited,” he is quoted as saying. "Si Anne nakatrabaho ko na, and napaka-successful ng movie na nagawa namin [No Other Woman]. Lagi namang masaya na katrabaho si Anne, so wala ang nerbiyos ko. May chemistry kami, kung paano ako didiskarte sa pag-arte. (I've worked with Anne before, and the movie was successful [No Other Woman]). Anne is always a joy to work with, so I'm not nervous. We've got chemistry, and I know how to utilize my acting skills when I'm with her.)"

“Kay KC, even more exciting, kasi hindi ko pa siya nakakatrabaho on big screen (With KC, it's even more exciting because we haven't worked together on the big screen yet)," he added. "Nakatrabaho ko siya before sa MMK [Maalaala Mo Kaya], sa TV. (We worked together on Maalala Mo Kaya on TV.)"

Sam at Lloydie, agawan sa role na tinanggal kay Derek


Posted by Online Balita on Apr 24th, 2012 

Ni Reggee Bonoan
IBALIK kaya kay Sam Milby ang role ni Derek Ramsay bilang leading man ni Bea Alonzo na pinamamahalaan ni Direk Olive Lamasan sa Star Cinema?

Unang ini-offer kay Sam ang naturang pelikula at excited pa nga ang aktor sa muli nilang pagtatambal ni Bea na una niyang nakatrabaho sa And I Love You So na idinirek ni Laurenti Dyogi tatlong taon na ang nakararaan.

Pero nag-backout si Sam dahil Pebrero ang umpisa ng shooting, na buwan din ng pag-alis niya patungong New York City para sa kanyang auditions doon.

Si Derek, na kasama rin noon sa And I Love You So (bilang pumanaw na asawa ni Bea) ang kinuhang kapalit ni Sam. Lumipat sa TV5 si Derek kaya tinanggal na siya sa pelikula, na ikinalungkot ng aktor dahil nangyari na nga ang kinatatakutan niya. Nakapag-shooting na si Derek ng limang araw sa naturang project.


Bagamat naiulat nang papalitan ni John Lloyd Cruz si Derek, ayon sa Star Cinema executive na si Roxy Liquigan nang makausap namin nitong nakaraang Linggo ay wala pa silang nakukuhang kapalit.
“As of now, Reggs, wala pa, mag-uusap pa lang kami tomorrow (kahapon). We’ll let you know by Wednesday dahil ia-announce namin,” sabi ni Roxy.

Lumutang ang pangalan ni John Lloyd dahil nagustuhan nito ang project nang mabasa ang script at inilambing niya ito kay Ms Malou Santos.

Pero may problema dahil may gagawing serye sina Lloydie at Bea sa unit ni Direk Laurenti Dyogi na kukunan sa London, baka raw ma-preempt kung sakaling gumawa ulit sila ng pelikula.

Bukod dito, kasalukuyan ding nagso-shoot ang aktor ng third movie nila ni Sarah Geronimo sa direksyon ni Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Samantala, padating na si Sam ngayong Mayo 15 at mananatili siya sa Pilipinas hanggang Setyembre at may kontrata pa siyang isang pelikula sa Star Cinema.

In fairness, kumita ang And I Love You So movie nina Sam at Bea kaya baka ikonsidera na sila na lang sila ulit ang msagtambal, ‘di ba, Star Cinema?

Sam Milby to make local showbiz comeback 'soon'


By JULIEN MERCED C. MATABUENA
April 18, 2012, 3:06pm

Sam is still after his American dream as he is willing to try again next casting season should he fail to clinch a role on a TV show this year.

MANILA, Philippines – Enchong Dee has revealed that his fellow Star Magic Sam Milby is set to return to the country soon for a new project with their mother network, ABS-CBN.

Recall that Milby, despite unsolicited warnings that breaking into Hollywood is a “near-impossible” feat, has put his local career on hold in favor of trying out in the American entertainment industry early this year. In March, The Filipino Channel show “Balitang America” reported that Milby has already “gone through nine auditions for roles in TV pilots for major networks” and was awaiting callbacks from agents and directors.

The actor has been overseas for about two months now, and has reportedly joined Dee and other Kapamilya stars for the Star Magic Tour in the US.

“Si Sam, nag-announce na siya ng pagbabalik niya. Actually sinabi niya na rin ‘yung bagong magiging show niya at makakasama niya, kaya konting hintay na lang, makakasama na natin si Sam ulit,” Dee told ABS-CBNNews.com in a report posted on April 18.

Asked for the latest news on Milby’s auditions, Dee said, “Hindi namin masyadong tinatanong sa kanya. Gusto namin antayin na lang kung ano ‘yung magiging break niya pagdating doon.”

However, no official word yet has been issued by Milby and ABS-CBN as of this writing.

Sam Milby to Return to the Philippines for New Show


Enchong Dee says Sam already announced his plans during ABS-CBN's overseas tour.

Actor Sam Milby, who left the Philippines for the US in February to pursue his Hollywood dream, is getting ready to make a comeback in local showbiz, ABS-CBNNews.com reports. Maria La Del Barrio star Enchong Dee was with Sam during ABS-CBN's overseas tour, and he revealed the latter's plans in an interview.

“Si Sam, nag-announce na siya ng pagbabalik niya," he is quoted as saying. "Actually, sinabi niya na rin ‘yung bagong magiging show niya at makakasama niya, kaya konting hintay na lang, makakasama na natin si Sam ulit. (Sam already announced that he would be returning. Actually, he already mentioned what his new show will be and who will star with him in it, so it's only a matter of time until he'll be with us again.)"

As for the outcome of Sam's audition for an American TV show, Enchong said he didn't know what the results were. "Hindi namin masyadong tinatanong sa kanya [‘yung tungkol sa audition niya]. Gusto namin antayin na lang kung ano ‘yung magiging break niya pagdating doon. (We don't really ask him about his audition. We just want to wait and see if he will get his break from there.)"

Before Sam left for New York in February, he expressed his desire to try again in 2013 should his plans this year fall through. “Even if nothing happens, it’s still something good kasi, the experience [is there]," he once said. "This is something that will help me grow as a person talaga. No matter what, I’ll come out of this a different person, and that’s a good thing.”

"Sam Milby to return to PH for new show"

Putting his Hollywood dream on hold, actor Sam Milby is set to return to the Philippines for a new show with ABS-CBN.

Arriving from their three-week Kapamilya tour series in the United States, actors Enchong Dee and Rayver Cruz revealed that Milby, who had joined them during their overseas tour, is set to make a comeback in the local showbiz scene after vying for a Hollywood dream role.
“Si Sam, nag-announce na siya ng pagbabalik niya. Actually sinabi niya na rin ‘yung bagong magiging show niya at makakasama niya, kaya konting hintay na lang, makakasama na natin si Sam ulit,” Dee said.
On the status of Milby’s audition for a role in an American TV series, Dee said they continue to await a possible big break for the former “Pinoy Big Brother” heartthrob.

“Hindi namin masyadong tinatanong sa kanya ['yung tungkol sa audition niya]. Gusto namin antayin na lang kung ano ‘yung magiging break niya pagdating doon,” Dee said.

In early February this year, Milby flew to New York hoping to break into the Hollywood scene as an actor.

“Even if nothing happens, it’s still something good kasi, the experience [is there],” Milby said at the time. “This is something that will help me grow as a person talaga, no matter what I’ll come out of this a different person and that’s a good thing.”

Milby said if opportunities do not open at first try, he would be willing to pursue the big dream again when pilot TV shows in the US open for the 2013 casting season.

Sam joins Anna Maria, Corbin Bleu in NYC show


FUNFARE By Ricardo F. Lo The Philippine Star Updated April 16, 2012 12:00 AM 

In the first major concert of Godspell star Anna Maria Perez de Tagle (left), Sam (right, photographed at New York’s Central Park) is doing a guest performance with Cobin Bleu (center), Anna Maria’s fellow Disney baby and High School Musical star. The concert, set for May 7, will be mounted onboard Hornblower Hybrid.

If Sam Milby keeps the three-month deadline he has given himself to try his luck as an actor in the US, maybe he won’t come home totally empty-handed. Did he bag a role from any of the auditions that he was reported to have taken? Uhm, not really. So far, the only project he has clinched is as a special guest in Anna Maria Perez de Tagle’s first major concert on May 7 onboard the Hornblower Hybrid, a cutting-edge boat by the world-famous Hornblower Cruises & Events, together with High School Musical star Corbin Bleu.



Sam said before he left that he would be away for three months which is much too short for any talent dreaming Hollywood to gain considerable ground. You see, competition out there is a hundred times stiffer (and far more cutthroat) than that in the local entertainment industry where more premium is put on looks than in talent. You have to compete not just with dozens but thousands of aspirants from around the world. And you must have the right connections.

So far, Sam’s only connection is Anna Maria who has become his friend and text-mate since their first meeting two years ago during a Star Magic event in California.

“That friendship was renewed recently when they met again in New York City where Sam is temporarily based while auditioning for prospective Hollywood projects,” said Funfare’s Big Apple correspondent Edmund Silvestre in an exclusive dispatch.

Is annulment the next move?


– APRIL 15, 2012
POSTED IN: HIGHSPEED

Manila, Philippines – ‘PUSONG MAMON’ REDUX — Heard that Viva’s doing a remake of “Pusong Mamon,” which the studio produced a decade or so ago. It’s a delightful comedy about a gay couple and the woman between them. “Pusong Mamon” starred Eric Quizon, Albert Martinez, and Lorna Tolentino. Directed by Joel Lamangan. Eric took over when Joel got sick.

The cast is still being discussed, but this columinist suggests that either Joel or Eric be retained as director.

Yes, it was a hit, hence the remake.

*

SUGGESTIONS, SUGGESTIONS – Here are some suggestions as regards the cast of the remake of “Pusong Mamon.” Take note, Boss Vic (del Rosario).

Should Viva co-produce it with Star Cinema, these names come to mind: Piolo Pascual, Sam Milby, and Bea Alonzo.

Or how about Jericho Rosales, Jake Cuenca, and Toni Gonzaga?

John Lloyd Cruz and Luis Manzano would also have been perfect, except that they’ve done similar roles in the Vilma Santos starrer “In My Life.”

Now, if it were a Viva-GMA joint venture, consider Dingdong Dantes, Dennis Trillo, and Marian Rivera.

If a younger cast is preferred, then why not Aljur Abrenica, Alden Richards, and Sam Pinto?

How about a Viva-TV5 co-prod? Suggested cast: Zoren Legaspi, Edgar Allan Guzman and Alice Dixson. Or Martin Escudero, Alwyn Uytinggo, and Ritz Azul....

Anna Maria Perez de Tagle Holds Benefit Concert On Board Cruise Ship, 5/7


New York, April 9, 2012 -- Godspell star Anna Maria Perez de Tagle holds a benefit concert for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on Monday, May 7, on board the Hornblower Hybrid (embarking at 7 p.m. from Pier 40), featuring de Tagle's Godspell costars Corbin Bleu, Wallace Smith, Nick Blaemire, Eric Krop, and George Salazar, and Filipino-American television and film actor and singer Sam Milby. Sonny Paladino (Disney's High School Musical, Billy Elliot) is musical director.


BroadwayWorld.com recently cornered Paladino who graciously talked about de Tagle, and what fans could anticipate from the cruise entertainment. "Fans should expect a mix of pop and musical theater. Anna’s diverse style is allowing us to perform both traditional musical theater pieces alongside some real – in your face – pop tunes. Expect everything from Boublil and Schonberg, to Kander and Ebb, to Lady Gaga, and maybe even a little Cee Lo Green! Tell me that’s not diverse!" he said....
