Paolo Ballesteros as Barbi,Wonder Beki
The role that used to be veteran comedian Joey de Leon’s, Barbi, has been handed down to Paolo Ballesteros, who humbly said “the character was not relinquished to me. Hindi pa binigay sa akin, I just borrowed it. Pinahiram lang ni Tito Joey.”
Paolo (who was acclaimed for his work in the MMFF 2016 entry “Die Beautiful”) added: “Ibang atake naman ako dito sa bagong Barbi, millennial siya…”
Joey is all-support to Paolo who plays the title role. He said Paolo is one of today’s most talented actors and he will certainly give justice to the role. Paolo expressed honor and gratitude for Joey’s participation in the movie directed by Tony Reyes and produced by Octo-Arts Films, M-Zet Films and T-Rex Entertainment.
Also in the cast are Joey Marquez, Benjie Paras, Smokey Manaloto, Epy Quizon, Ruby Rodriguez, Bianca Umali, Miguel Tanfelix, Ejay Falcon and Kim Domingo.
