Jericho Rosales to do a movie in LA next year

Jericho Rosales might just fulfill his Hollywood dream soon, that is, if COVID-19 allows it. The actor confirmed a project is awaiting him in Los Angeles, California in a recent interview with “Balitang America.” Jericho Rosales “It may push through, it may not push through because of COVID, we don’t know. But I’m hoping fingers crossed (that) by March, I will be there,” the 41-year-old said. In the same interview, Jericho also talked about his short film “Basurero” and how he was able to relate to it. Note that “Basurero” tells the story of a fisherman struggling to make ends meet. The short film is being shown in US film festivals. He related, “When I was 14, I was working at a fast-food chain. I was 15 and I became a driver and before I had many jobs like I sold fish in the market. Acting was such a blessing for me. That opened up so many opportunities for me and that opened my mind to like the things that I really wanted to do.” “I remember myself saying that, ‘okay, I think I’m at the right place because I didn’t go to college but this is what I want to do.’ That motivated me but before that my greatest motivation was just for me to just give my family a better life,” he added.  He hopes to inspire people through “Basurero.” “I really want people  to know what they deserve. I want people to know what other people deserve and that for me is education, having access to basic needs, having access to a home, having access to internet, nowadays especially di ba? And we have to care about people.”.....»»
