Rendon Labador claimed that the people behind FPJ’s Batang Quiapo offered him a role.
In an interview with Ogie Diaz, Rendon said he was supposed to take the role Vandolph Quizon is currently playing.
If Rendon accepted the role, he would become one of the show’s antagonists as part of the ‘Batang Divisoria,’ the nemesis of Coco’s group.
However, Rendon said that the negotiation between him and Batang Quiapo team failed.
“January palang nag-offer na sila, so hindi nagkasundo,” said Rendon.
He also denied that his criticism against Coco was related to the failed negotiation between him and the Batang Quiapo team.
“Nauna ‘yung offer, tapos pumutok ‘yung issue, March na, so may nagreklamong isang vendor so nag-step up ako para boses ng bayan, negosyante din ako eh. Ayokong maabala ‘yung mga tao na ang liit na nga ng kinikita tapos maabala ka pa,” he stated.
It can be recalled that Coco admitted that they made an offer to Rendon.
Rendon then disclosed why the negotiation between him and Batang Quiapo failed.
“Yes, January palang nakikipag negotiate na sila saakin para mabigyan ako ng role sa BATANG QUIAPO. Totoo yan! Nag rerequest ako ng meeting sakanila para maayos ang collaboration.” Rendon said.
“Hindi sila corporate kausap kaya hindi namin masyado binigyan ng pansin.
“Nag follow up sila ng second time at gusto daw nila ako i include, tinawagan namin sila at nakausap. Wala silang maayos na direction sa role na offer pati sa story hindi organized, kaya hindi na ulit namin pinansin.”
