Baron Geisler shouts out: ‘I want to work’
Baron Geisler has this one plea: “I want to work.”
The controversial actor seems to have reached the bitter end of fate when he was finally denied of any showbiz commitments by the Professional Artists Managers Inc. (PAMI). An incident during the shooting of a scene for the movie “Bubog”, where Geisler urinated on his fellow indie actor Ping Medina without the actor’s permission nor the director’s knowledge, led to the PAMI decision.
Now, the actor is telling the world that he needs work, and he needs it badly.
In a Facebook live video post last night (video already taken down as of this writing), the actor was seen seemingly drunk, holding a bottle of beer and puffing cigarettes one after another. His behavior got netizens quickly assuming that he might be dealing with his alcoholism again, or worse, that he might be under the influence of more serious substances.
However, the actor defended himself and denied that he was under the influence of drugs. He just stressed that he really just wants to work again
“And they’re like, ‘oh my God, what is [he] tapping into right now? What is he thinking? Is he high? Is he on drugs? Is he drunk?'” Geisler said, quoting detractors during his Facebook live video post.
“Oh no, I’m not! I’m just f***ing hungry, coz’ I wanna f***ing work,” he exclaimed.
Just as many ridiculed the troubled actor for his recent behavior, many still expressed understanding and support.
Throughout the tumultuous peeing incident then, Geisler’s manager Arnold Vegafria submitted to PAMI’s decision and assured the organization that “[Geisler] will refuse to accept any projects until such time that [he] is mentally fit and psychologically stable to resume his work as an actor.”
As the award-winning actor is still covered by the PAMI sanction, can his latest outcry reverse it, and would he finally be deemed fit to go back to work? JB
