Joem on playing gay roles: 'Okey lang, pero hindi muna.'

Joem on playing gay roles: 'Okey lang, pero hindi muna.'

"May mga offers naman pero, right now, hindi muna," actor Joem Bascon revealed to ABS-CBN.COM when asked about his take on doing gay roles on screen. "Okay naman ako, pero hindi pa ako ganun kalalim for that kind of portrayal. Di pa ganun kalalim ang experience ko sa show biz and acting."

Joem added that he finds portraying off-beat characters very exciting and would definitely help him fulfill his dream of being a full-pledged actor. But at the same time, he also believes that one must be convincing in his portrayals. “Baka 'pag ginawa ko, ang babaw pala. So hindi siya ganun kagandang tingnan," he explained.

After spending two years in show business, Joem is definitely showing promise of becoming a serious actor. His role in indie film Batanes, won him a Golden Screen Award for breakthrough performance by an actor. Joem confessed that he made a big leap when he accepted the role in Batanes. "I took the risk of grabbing a mature role," he began. "With Batanes, yung transition ko mabilis, from teenybopper to mature." The 22-year-old actor is now taking on another role in a socially relevant indie movie tentatively titled Kalayaan. The film is about Filipino soldiers guarding the SpratlysIsland.

Joem is also busy with two TV projects – ABS-CBN’s I Love Betty La Fea and a showbiz oriented talk show on TV 5.The young man was very enthusiastic in describing his role on I Love Betty La Fea though for he will be transforming into Mark, Ecomoda Manila’s resident playboy. "Ako dito yung malokong vice president ng kumpanya. Ako 'yung best friend ni Armando (played by John Lloyd Cruz). Even before pa siya mag-work sa Ecomoda, best friends na talaga kami ni Armando," Joem concluded.
