The television series “Ang Probinsyano” now holds the record for the longest running action drama series on Philippine television.
The top billed program which is on it’s fourth year now has showcased many actors and actresses.
Many celebrities both young and old had their chance to act as a guest star to the program. Artist from both the past and present considers it a privilege to become a part of the show.
Many of them expressed their gratitude to the lead actor and now director of the show Coco Martin.
Some viewers even made fun at Coco’s program. They said the series became some sort of charity for basically giving help to his fellow artists.
The series which receive constant acclaim and praises had guest several popular names in the showbiz.
A handful of names managed to made a comeback despite these stars already past their prime.
Given the action packed nature of the story, Coco also catered to several of famous action stars from the local scene to do their part on the series.
A few of the big names included Edu Manzano, Victor Neri, Christopher De Leon, Raymart Santiago, Cesar Montano and even the late Eddie Garcia himself.
Many viewers however started to wonder. From the list of big names that appeared on the show, one more famous action star has yet to show interest in making an appearance.
Robin Padilla had certainly build his name and fame in playing action related roles in most of his movies.
Many viewers cannot help but ask why the former Bad Boy of Philippine Cinema miss out the chance.
Coco Martin himself had publicly expressed his admiration to Robin and his craft. He even went on to say that he dreamed and wish to work with Robin if given the chance.
A report by Inquirer Bandera told that Binoe initially had been slated to appear on the show.
However for some reason, he declined the offer to make an appearance.
The article told that Robin either did not like the role offered to him. Also rumor has it that he do not like the idea of becoming an villain to Coco main role.
It can be recalled that the same thing happened to former action star and martial artist Monseur Del Rosario when he decline to guest in the series due to the role they plan to give him.
However, it does not mean that Robin probably had something against Coco. Provided all the things they contributed to the film industry, it is safe to say that both have utter respect for each other.
