Ogie the ‘Pick-Up’ artist

/ 07:17 PM June 04, 2012


Ogie Alcasid’s “Boy Pick-Up” character in “Bubble Gang” has become so popular that it can no longer be confined to TV. It doesn’t come as a surprise that it is now a movie, and it opens Wednesday.

Ogie’s singing and songwriting skills take a backseat as he showcases his comic talent and versatility on the big screen with leading ladies Solenn Heussaff and Sam Pinto. Dennis Trillo portrays Gabbs/Bagwis—Boy’s rival in the pick-up battle showdown.
