Chef Boy Logro steps out of the kitchen and stars in an upcoming film titled "The Fighting Chefs," which marks his debut as a movie actor.
But ever wondered how the funny cook got included in the film? It's actor, film producer, director, and Optical Media Board (OMB) chairman Ronnie Ricketts who wanted Chef Boy as his co-star in the film.
In an interview with GMA News, Ronnie said he is a big fan of the kitchen master.
"Nu’ng ginawa ko 'yung storyline nito, inikot ko na sa aming dalawa ni Boy," he shared. "Sabi ko, 'Makasama ko sana si Chef Boy,' and finally it happened."
He also described Boy as "very professional" and always comes early to their set.
Boy meanwhile was a bit surprised with the offer, but said he was very much game with the idea. He revealed receiving a couple of hits during the fight scenes but just accepted it since they're part of the filming.
Chef Boy became a hit via GMA-7's "Kusina Master." He is also part of GMA News TV's "Idol Sa Kusina." He also appeared in the Marian Rivera starrer "Tweets for My Sweet."
He also manages a namesake resto in Cavite and runs a culinary school, which counts actress "Be Careful With My Heart" star Jodi Sta. Maria among its students.
"The Fighting Chefs" is shown this March 6 in select theaters nationwide. It is directed by Ronnie Ricketts in joint venture with Viva Films. It also stars Hero Angeles, Vandolph, Jeffrey Santos, Joross Gamboa, Arci Muñoz, Jon Hall, and Ronnie's wife Marella Ricketts.
