The trend is, actors who have an edge on becoming a politician delve into politics. In Eddie Gil's case, he definitely ran for President of the Republic of the Philippines so as to land a spot in a prime time sitcom. He WANTS it (It being the attention--the KSP-ish attention, in local jargon). He was hilarious in his two guestings at Wazzup Wazzup, and all he did was be himself. Too bad I wasn't able to watch him in Tanging Ina.
