Instead of doing Fast Talk on Tonight with Boy Abunda, the talk show host prepared another game for James Reid where he flashes photos of actors and actresses that he and Nadine Lustre could work with in the future.

The King of Talk started with Yassi Pressman and James gamely said ‘Games Reid,’ the thing he is supposed to say if he’s ‘game’ with working with the artist. 

He explained that Yassi is a friend and they’ve already worked together in his first big film with Nadine, Diary ng Panget.

“She’s been a friend of mine since I went to Viva, Diary ng Panget was my first big movie with Nadine and was also with Yassi and Andre [Paras] and she’s been a good friend of mine.”

When they showed Janella Salvador, he gamely said yes and was hoping they’d collaborate on music.

“If we did work together hopefully it’s music, something like that,” he said.

He also agreed to working with Liza Soberano and when Boy asked him if he’s willing to work with her and beau Enrique Gil he said, “The three of us? That’d be awesome. Quen’s [Enrique] been a close of friend of mine since I got out of Big Brother.”

James also said he is willing to work with Kathryn Bernardo. 

However, when it came to Julia Barretto, he explained why he answered ‘Games Over.’

“There’s too much noise when it comes to fans and stuff. I have no problem with her at all it’s just too much noise. Let’s make life easy,” he explained.

When Boy showed photos of Nadine’s possible leading men, he agreed that he can see a project with Joshua Garcia and also admired Arjo Atayde’s acting skills.

“I would say yes just because he’s an amazing actor. I love Arjo. Games Reid,” he said.

He alao said ‘Games Over Reid’ to FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano star Coco Martin but said it would be cool if he and Nadine would star in an action movie.

“I just can’t see them in a project together. Actually no, if it was an action project then Games Reid. Nadine’s always wanted to do like an action star. So alongside Coco, that would be cool,” he said.

He also said yes to actors Daniel Padilla and Gerald Anderson.
