LOOK: John Arcilla explains his ‘Probinsyano’ character’s ‘unli bullets,’ multiplying cars in wacky Q&A
John Arcilla has been having a fun time answering wacky queries from his fans regarding some hysterical and bizarre details they have noticed in recent episodes of the ABS-CBN action-drama series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
This week in the show, the group of main antagonist Renato Hipolito (Arcilla) has been chasing down Task Force Aguila led by Cardo Dalisay (Coco Martin). These scenes have been putting viewers at the edge of their seats.
“Sobrang NAALIW LANG AKO sa comment ng isang fan ng Ang Probinsyano. Kakatuwa lang kasi napaka PLEASANT, hindi siya ANTAGONISTIC,” the veteran actor said on Instagram on Tuesday, June 1, alongside a screenshot of the fan’s comment pleading him to let go of Dalisay and his team.
“[P]lease tama na po kakahabol, nauubusan na din sila ng bala [kakabaril] sa inyo,” a certain RI CH IE told him. “Anyway God Bless you po, Mr. Hipolito. PS: Sana mapagod din kayo kakahabol sa kanila.”

Arcilla also showed an online exchange between him and another fan who asked about how Hipolito’s cars were multiplying as the chase goes on, and whether the antagonist called for back-up, as seen on his Instagram page yesterday, June 2.
“Oo habang naghahabulan kami- tuloy-tuloy lang ang dating ng [mga] trak trak [ng] tauhan ko- [Hindi niyo] lang nakikita kasi busy na kami sa kakatakbo- Tapos habang nag-babarilan- tawag din ako ng tawag ng mga dadating na trak trak kaso [hindi] na din namin nai-share kasi busy na kami sa barilan…” he said, as per a screenshot he posted.
(Yes, while on the chase, the trucks of my men just keep arriving. You just don’t see it because we’re busy running. Then, while the shootout goes on, I keep calling for more trucks, though we did not [announce] it because we were busy with the shootout.)
Arcilla hoped he had answered the question properly before expressing his admiration for the fan.

In another exchange, Arcilla was asked about how Hipolito’s gun seemed to have unlimited bullets during a long chase and shootout, to which he replied humorously by saying he would ask Dalisay after they take a break from shooting each other. He shared the interaction on Instagram today, June 3.
“Kaso, [‘pag] tinanong ko si Cardo at tinutukan [niya] ako [siyempre] barilan ulet, ‘diba? So, baka ‘di ko maitanong,” he responded. “Wait lang, [‘di] ako [maka-text], takbuhan ng takbuhan mga tao ko, nasasagi [cellphone] ko, babatukan ko lang ‘tong isang tauhan ko bago mapatay. Kakautas. Punyemas. Balikan kita later,” he jested.
(Although, if I ask Cardo and he points a gun at me, of course, another shootout will happen, right? So, I might not have the opportunity to ask the question. Wait, I can’t text. People are running, I might drop my phone. I just have to hit one of my men in the head before he gets killed. So funny. Damn it. I’ll get back to you.)

This is not the first time Arcilla has received comments regarding his “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” character. Last May, he reminded a basher that scenes from television series are different from real life. JB
