Top 5 Lessons on Dating According to beTV's "Men at Work Season 2"

Top 5 Lessons on Dating According to beTV's "Men at Work Season 2"

The guys of Men at Work are back on the best of TV, beTV! Milo (Danny Masterson), who struggled to move on after getting dumped by his girlfriend during the show’s first season, returns with his friends: the sensitive, Neal (Adam Busch); the witty, Tyler (Michael Cassidy); and, the womanizer, Gibbs (James Lesure).  With Season 2 set to air on August 29 at 8:30 PM, we have rounded up the Top 5lessons on mating, dating and relating to women from the well-intentioned men of Men at Work.

Lesson No. 1: If there’s a will, there’s a way.  Do not hold back on returning to the dating scene even with disappointments and rejection scares. You never know. You might just find the girl of your dreams.

Lesson No. 2: Never date someone from your friend’s past or, worse yet, your friend’s present girlfriend. Getting it on with visions of your friend in the background would be extremely disturbing and not to mention, mood-killing.  But worse of all, this move would kill the friendship.

Lesson No. 3: It wouldn’t hurt to wear your lucky charm. If you need a confidence boost when going out on a date, put on that lucky vest! You never know how lucky you may get with that fail-safe charm hidden in your closet.

Lesson No. 4: Take things slow.  A new romance seems to be overwhelming but always keep in mind that too much of something is never that good. Learn how to “downshift” the relationship.
Lesson No. 5: Learn to let go. When your relationship becomes awkward, like when you run out of things to talk about or feel that there is no longer that connection, it may be time to re-evaluate and pull away.  Don’t let pity get in the way, even if she may have hurt her leg. Mustering that courage may save you from a painful and complicated relationship.

Milo and his friends may not always get things right, but they sure know how to make the most of the situation and have a good time! Catch the clueless yet always hilarious and endearing foursome with their dating hits and misses on Men At Work starting August 29, 8:30 PM every Monday to Thursday, first and exclusive on beTV!

beTV airs on SkyCable (Channel 35), Dream Satellite (Channel 36), Cignal Digital TV (Channel 37) and Destiny Cable (Channel 62). Follow @beTVasia on Twitter and like beTV on Facebook.

"Mundo Mo'y Akin" Beautiful Journey Ends Soon

"Mundo Mo'y Akin" Beautiful Journey Ends Soon

The Beautiful Beginning

Since its premiere last March 18, GMA Telebabad drama series Mundo Mo’y Akin has been getting rave reviews and high ratings.

The show’s beautiful and interesting storyline is one of the reasons why viewers are so hooked on this show. “We’ve been getting good ratings so far kaya nakaka-inspire talaga magtrabaho,” lead actor Alden Richards who plays the role of Jerome, shared.  “Sana po tuloy-tuloy ang pagsuporta n’yo sa Mundo Mo’y Akin kasi paganda nang paganda ang storya,” he added.

According to award-winning actress, Jaclyn Jose, who plays Donya Charito in the show, it’s the beautiful camaraderie among actors and production staff that makes Mundo Mo’y Akin a major success. “My director is my friend. My co-actors are all professionals. Lahat sila magagaling. Kaya ang buong show ay nadadala dahil ensemble ang soap na ito. Lahat magagaling ang nagtatrabaho,” she said.  Alden also added, “Mahaba ang bonding moments namin especially with co-actors. Masarap kasi isang buong family na kami dito eh.

Why else is Mundo Mo’y Akin so well-loved by many? This primetime drama never fails to give us high-calibre performances by its stellar cast. Viewers and even critics have been raving about the beautiful chemistry among lead stars Alden Richards, Louise delos Reyes and Lauren Young, as well as the excellent acting of Sunshine Dizon, Angelika dela Cruz, Gabby Eigenmann, Jolina Magdangal and everyone’s favourite, Madame Charito herself, Jaclyn Jose. “Siyempre, natutuwa ako kapag nagwo-work yung trabahong gawa ko, kapag nagustuhan, na-appreciate ng viewers. Lalo ko pinagbubuti ang trabaho,” Jaclyn stated. Other supporting actors and actresses also delivered while sharing the same spotlight as the others.

Originally set to run for sixteen weeks, Mundo Mo’y Akin was awarded several extensions because of the positive feedback and consistent high ratings.

The Beautiful Ending

Will Marilyn and Darlene finally patch things up? Will Jerome and Marilyn eventually end up together? Will Perlita and Rodora become best of friends again? Now that the show is nearing its end, everyone is asking the same question: Will the ending be truly beautiful? “Patuloy lang silang tumutok sa Mundo Mo’y Akin dahil marami pang mangyayaring twist sa story na ikagugulat nila kaya ‘wag na ‘wag silang bibitiw! Paniguradong beautiful ending talaga,” a member of the show’s staff revealed.

Matt Damon Caught Between Earth and Elysium

Matt Damon Caught Between Earth and Elysium

Matt Damon takes on the lead role of Max in TriStar Pictures' futuristic action thriller “Elysium” whose socio-political message underneath the gripping action scenes isn't lost on the actor.

I like to think it’s a hopeful message,” Damon says. “Even in a future where it’s every man for himself, it’ll be possible for a human being to hold on to his humanity.

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max, an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

At the center of the chaos on Earth, between the two worlds, is Max. “Max needs to get to Elysium to save himself, but in his desperation, he gets involved in a plot that makes him realize that the problem is much bigger than him,” says director Neill Blomkamp. “And he ends up fighting for something more than himself, fighting to save other people on Earth.

Max, like a lot of people on Earth, has always aspired to get to Elysium,” says Damon. “That was his dream. But he grew up. You get the idea that he’s been a petty criminal, but on an Earth where resources are so scarce that everybody’s hustling in some way, he’s just doing what he’s got to do to get by. He’s been beaten up by life and now, he’s resigned to his life on Earth. He doesn’t dream about Elysium anymore. But in the movie, he’s put in a position to become the only person who can change things.

Max is an entirely different look for Damon – shaven, tattooed, muscle-bound. “Neill was very specific about every detail and how he wanted the character to look,” says Damon. “He provided us all with pictures of the characters. I don’t think anybody had ever done that for me before – literally handed me a picture of the character with his shirt off. So I went to my trainer and I said, ‘Make me look like that,’ and a great trainer can do that.”

Damon says that he was inspired to join the project by the chance to work with Blomkamp. “Like everybody, I saw `District 9,' and like everybody, I freaked out,” he says. “Neill jumped to the top of the list of people that I wanted to work with. So when I heard that he wanted to meet with me about his next movie, I met him for coffee. He pulled out a kind of graphic novel that he had designed himself that explained the whole world of Elysium. He’d designed it all, built it all already. He just needed us to help him bring it to life. And that was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”

Matt Damon has been honored for his work on both sides of the camera, most recently earning Academy Award®, Screen Actors Guild Award® and Critics’ Choice Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of South African rugby hero Francois Pienaar in Clint Eastwood’s true-life drama “Invictus.” In addition, he also garnered dual Golden Globe Award nominations that year: one for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in “Invictus” and one for Best Actor for his starring role in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Informant!” Earlier in his career, Damon won an Academy Award® for Best Screenplay and received an Oscar® nomination for Best Actor, both for his breakthrough feature “Good Will Hunting.”

Opening across the Philippines on September 04, “Elysium” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Visit www.columbiapictures.com.ph to see the latest trailers, get free downloads and play free movie games.

Court of Appeals Junks Petition for Certiorari Against NLRC and GMA Network Subsidiary Scenarios, Inc.

Court of Appeals Junks Petition for Certiorari Against NLRC and GMA Network Subsidiary Scenarios, Inc.

The Special Eleventh Division of the Court of Appeals (CA) dismissed a petition for certiorari filed by an augmentation set crew against Scenarios, Inc., a GMA Network subsidiary. Scenarios is a company that handles design, constructions and maintenance of sets for TV shows, stage plays and concerts.

In its July 31, 2013 decision, penned by the Chairman of the Special Eleventh Division Associate Justice Magdangal M. De Leon, the Apellate Court stated that they found no sufficient evidence “that there was grave abuse of discretion on the part of the National Labor Relations Commission” (NLRC) when its Resolution dated March 11, 2011 affirmed the April 30, 2010 Decision by the Labor Arbiter.

Petitioners Rolando Ramos, Jhunel Tobias, Rogelio S. Ramos, Dino Laga and Alberto Lacerna initially filed a complaint for illegal dismissal against Scenarios, Inc. after the GMA program, All Star K, wrapped up in October 2009. Upon finding no employer-employee relationship between the petitioners and Scenarios, Inc., the Labor Arbiter ruled in favour of the latter. The petitioners then appealed to the NLRC which sustained the Labor Arbiter’s decision on the ground that it “was not swayed by the petitioners’ insistence” that they were hired as regular employees. After their appeal and motion for reconsideration were both denied, the petitioners then elevated the matter to the CA. 

“The petition lacks merit,” said the ruling of the Court.  It went on to quote the NLRC decision that while the petitioners were hired as augmentation set crew,  their services were not really engaged for the usual business of Scenarios and they “actually rendered intermittent casual work” for Scenarios.   Thereby, the petitioners “cannot be considered to have attained the status of regularity.”  Concurring in the decision are Associate Justices Stephen C. Cruz and Pedro B. Corales. 

James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, et al Play `Horrible' Versions of Themselves in “This Is The End”

James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, et al Play `Horrible' Versions of Themselves in “This Is The End”

For a film about the group dynamics among a group of friends facing the apocalypse, it’s no surprise that the characters in Columbia Pictures' critically acclaimed comedy “This Is The End” were tailor-made for the actors playing the roles. They would all play horrible “versions” of themselves, says co-director/writer Evan Goldberg.

In “This Is The End,” six friends – who just happen to be James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson – are trapped in Franco’s house as the end of the world begins outside. And we’re not talking about any old California-slides-into-the-ocean earthquake… we’re talking the fire-and-brimstone Apocalypse – the real Biblical deal.

Seth isn’t a duplicitous coward, but he plays one in this film,” Goldbrg says. “Danny is a delightful sweetheart, but his character is a maniac. Franco – the things we mock in Franco in the movie are real, but Franco in real life is nothing like the way he acts in the movie. He genuinely does like art and weird stuff, but it’s not pretentious and he’s not in-your-face about it. He doesn’t care what others think about his art. He just likes art. The only exceptions are Jay, who is more like his character than anyone else in the movie, and Craig, who isn’t a jerk like his character, but is a guy who carries a towel around to wipe sweat off his face.”

People think they know everything about you based on the characters you play,” says co-director/writer and star Seth Rogen. “So we thought it would be funny to play into that – to have these characters that behave in the way that everybody thinks is what we’re like off-screen. There are elements of our real selves, but we all twisted them or exaggerated them to make it funny.”

Playing yourself can be a challenge – even for an Academy Award® nominee, as Jonah Hill says, “I’ve never slipped out of character more than when I was playing myself.

But it’s more than just a joke, says Rogen. It’s a way of acknowledging the elephant in the room. “Everybody knows that we’re friends and we’re always in movies together. It was almost weirder that the movie wouldn’t acknowledge that in some way,” says Rogen. “So we thought, OK, let’s acknowledge it, and then let’s move beyond it. We wanted the relationships to feel real. We thought that would be the element that grounded the movie if the dynamics between the characters were real and relatable. So even though the movie gets super-crazy – it’s the Apocalypse – there’s a simple idea at the center that I hope is very believable. We never could have written this movie if we didn’t know these guys – and we definitely couldn’t have directed it.

Distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International, “This Is The End” will be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide starting September 11.

Hot momma Jennylyn Mercado has her days packed with her mommy duties, herromantic escapades with her main squeeze, and her hosting duties on Sunday All Stars. On top of this, Jen has a new program that will start airing on August 26 before the Ryzza Mae Show. “Anak Ko Yan” is the Philippines’ first reality talent show for parent-child tandems. The actress is even more excited for the program as she also started her career in a similar show, Star Struck. However, Jen admits that if her son were to decide to enter the world of show business, she would be the first to disapprove of it.

Hindi ko yata kaya, hindi ako papayag. Ako na lang siguro ‘wag na lang siya,” the actress said with a shake of head. “Siguro hanggang pictorial lang siya wag na yung talagang showbiz. Kasi mahirap talaga kapag andyan na yung intriga.”

The power emphasized that as a mom, she didn’t want her child to experience the hardships that came with fame. “Bilang isang ina, ayaw mo na maranasan ng anak mo yung ganun. Sa trabaho din namin hindi talaga maiiwasan na mapagod ka kapag dire-doretso ang taping, napupuyat ka rin. Ayaw ko muna na mangyari sa kanya yun kasi bata pa siya,” Jen relayed.

Will her protective mother instincts also influence her hosting on Anak ko Yan? Watch Jennyln with the dance and singing coaches, Rochelle Pangilinan and Dulce daily on GMA-7 morning timeslot to find out!

Bryan Cranston Role in Superman Sequel Revealed

Bryan Cranston Role in Superman Sequel Revealed

Bryan Cranston, the "Breaking Bad" star, will play the role of Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, reports said.

Cranston has reportedly been cast as supervillain Lex Luthor alongside Ben Affleck as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman.

Cranston is said to have signed at least a six-appearance deal with DC Comics, which means he may have more chances to destroy Superman in future Justice League films, according to Cosmic Book News.

An official announcement is expected to be made after the conclusion of the final season of Breaking Bad.

An insider told Cosmic Book News: "Cranston truly is a dream casting for Luthor."

With Affleck on board, DC is also rumored to be considering Matt Damon for the roles of Aquaman or Martian Manhunter.

Mark Strong may also join in the role of Green Lantern mentor Sinestro, which he played in the recent Green Lantern film. - news.com.au

Marshall Mathers LP 2 Album Sneak Peek on MTV VMAs

Marshall Mathers LP 2 Album Sneak Peek on MTV VMAs

Marshall Mathers LP 2, as announced by Eminem during the MTV Video Music Awards, will be out on November 5.

The 8th solo album of the famous rapper is a sequel to the 2000 effort Marshall Mathers LP. During the show's commercial break, a track from the album was played with the lyrics:

“Let’s take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch
I’m about to bloody this track up, everybody get back
That’s why my pen needs a pad because my rhymes’ on the rag.”

There’s already been one track released from Marshall Mathers LP 2. The song, called “Survival,” appeared in an advertisement for the upcoming game Call of Duty: Ghosts. The song featured vocals from singer Skylar Grey, who Eminem has collaborated with on the Dr. Dre song “I Need a Doctor.” Paul Rosenberg, President of Shady Records, had talked about the album earlier this year but didn’t give a timetable for its release. “He’s been working on it for some time. It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when,” Rosenberg said. “We’ve got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we’re trying to see what else lines up.”

Before Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem last released a full solo album in 2010.

Thea Tolentino is "Girl on Fire"

Thea Tolentino is "Girl on Fire"

For her first lead role as Pyra, Thea Tolentino will not only be showcasing her talent in acting, but also in singing and playing the guitar. The Ultimate Female Protégé recalled her engagement with both when she was growing up.

Thea learned how to play the guitar in high school due to the influence of her peers. She brought to mind the songs that she used to play, which were mostly J-pop songs, because she was into Japanese pop culture and anime. Unfortunately, due to her current busy schedule, she has not been able to keep tabs on J-pop.

Singing was part of Thea Tolentino’s childhood because their family managed a karaoke business. Her mom worked for her grandfather’s electronics store, and has always brought her along. As a bonus, little Thea sang and danced in the shop, most of the time, to the tune of Britney Spears’ songs. On the karaoke machine, she would always punch the numbers for “Dadalhin” by Regine Velasquez, and “Never had a dream come true” by S Club 7.

Thea’s dreams finally did come true now that she was cast for the lead role in the Afternoon Primetime soap, Pyra. And she’s bringing with her all these learning and experiences she had while growing up. She will be playing the role of Pyra who has a special ability called "Pyrokinesis."

Will her voice and guitar-playing help out her character? Will her music bring more warmth to Pyra? Kapuso, let’s find out the answers as we all watch Pyra: Ang Babaeng Apoy! Catch its pilot episode this August 26, Monday, and witness the newest and hottest primetime show on GMA.

Sam Milby Courting Jessy Mendiola

Sam Milby Courting Jessy Mendiola

Sam Milby admitted that he is again inlove.

The lucky girl?

Maria Mercedes" herself Jessy Mendiola.

Nililigawan ko si Jessy. She’s aware. I did let her know my intentions, yes. I like her, she’s beautiful. I like her simplicity. Hindi siya maarte,” he said in an interview with “The Buzz.

While some people think the 20-year-old actress is too young for the 29-year-old actor, Sam said: “I think a lot of times she’s misunderstood too. Masyado siyang bata pero she’s mature for her age. I can’t say na I know her that well but the times that I’ve hung out with her have been fun.”

On her part, Jessy sees nothing wrong if she allows Sam to get to know her more. “Single ako at single siya so bakit naman hindi. Pero we go out lang naman and hang. Nothing super serious since alam niya priority ko ang career ko. He’s a very sweet and nice guy so I don’t want to close any doors naman and why not let him get the chance na makilala ako and ganoon din ako sa kanya,” she said.
