Robin wants to take on a father role in his comeback soap.
Two years since he left ABS-CBN, the Bad Boy now Good Boy of the Philippine Cinema, Robin Padilla is now back in the Kapamilya network.
Robin, on Wednesday, signed a two-year exclusive TV contract with ABS-CBN.
Fans of the action star can expect him to make two seryes and a sitcom which he considers his breather whenever he makes serious projects.
Instead of wielding guns, Robin wants to take on father roles on his future projects.
“Ang napagusapan lang namin ng ABS (CBN) ‘yung family-oriented. Gusto ko talaga ay may anak ako, ‘yung mga values ng mga Pilipino,” he said.
But how about being part of a noontime show?
“Ako kung ano ang ibibigay ng ABS (CBN) kailangan kong gawin. Nasubukan ko na ‘yan eh. Enjoy ‘yan eh. Tsaka ang noontime kasi napakalapit sa tao. ‘Yan ang isang bagay na naranasan ko nung ako ay nag-noontime sa buong daigdig ng ABS-CBN. Hindi ko ipagpapalit ‘yun eh,” said Robin.
It may be recalled that Robin once became a substitute host for Willie Revillame’s defunct noontime show Wowowee, where he and his wife Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla met and fell in love with each other.
Asked whether he hopes to work with his exes like Kris Aquino and Sharon Cuneta, Robin quickly replied that he’s amenable with it.
But he added, “Oo naman, pero kung magta-trabaho kami. Sana ‘wag na ‘yung mabigat. Light drama ganon or ‘yung may mga anak na kami.”
Now that he’s back in the Kapamilya network where his nephew, Daniel Padilla and his niece Bela Padilla are both active, Robin expressed his desire to work with them especially with the Teen King.
“Ay na kay Daniel ‘yun eh. Siyempre ‘yung pamangkin ko yata ang pinaka-busy sa lahat ng busy. Ako eh isang patawag lang niya nandyan nako. Lagi naman akong nakasuporta sakanya,” said Robin.
He ended, “Gugulpihin ako ng tatay nu’n kapag ka hindi, mas matanda sa akin si Omeng [Rommel Padilla] eh.”
