Ryan Agoncillo: No to ‘Talentado’ return
“Talentadong Pinoy” is not returning to TV5 anytime soon.
Host Ryan Agoncillo previously told the Inquirer that he’d like the show’s “original team,” including director Rich Ilustre and writer Paolo Bustamante, behind him—if and when the show is revived.
Alas, it was not meant to be. “It’s the end of our journey,” Agoncillo said on Tuesday.
He tried to convince Ilustre “for old times’ sake” but, Agoncillo said, “his past hurts, present preoccupation and future plans wouldn’t let him.”
The TV host/actor said he was proud of what he and the station had built together.
TV5 aired “Talentadong Pinoy” from August 2008 to August 2013.
“But we have to move on now,” Agoncillo said.
“Maybe there’ll be other opportunities in the future.”
He currently top-bills the sitcom “Ismol Family” on GMA 7. Bayani San Diego Jr.
