During the Ang Probinsyano thanksgiving presscon held last July 13, Coco Martin revealed that viewers can look forward to seeing Vice Ganda on the show along with some of the country’s top comedians. “Ang next na magiging guest namin si Vice Ganda naman. Kumbaga sabi ko sa kanya iba rin eh, ang pinapangako namin dito ibang ibang Vice ang makikita nila. Kasi marami na si Vice na nagawang pelikula. Kilalang kilala na ng tao si Vice. Ang ano namin, paano namin babaguhin si Vice? Saka kasama namin dito si Vice, si Ethel Booba, si Chokoleit, si Lassy, si MC. Isa silang malaking sindikato,” Coco said.

After teaming up for the Metro Manila Film Fest blockbuster Beauty and the Bestie, Coco said he personally invited his good friend Vice to be a guest in the series because he had a good role for him. The Showtime host is slated to be part of the country’s number one show for two to three weeks. “Opo. Sabi ko sa kanya pag hindi siya nag-guest sa akin magkakatampuhan kami (laughs). Kadalasan naman two to three weeks ang guest namin. Ganun din kung ano ang ginagawa nila. Eh siyempre ganun naman kami bilang magkaibigan, nagtutulungan kami. Sabi nga namin, sa hirap at ginhawa, meron or wala, magtutulungan kami sa isa’t isa,” he admitted.

Unlike the usual comedic characters that Vice usually plays, he will be a part of a gang of criminals in the series. “Alam niyo yung mga cyber sex? Parang ganun. Yung may mag-me-message sa iyo and then after that pakakagatin ka tapos pag na-video-han ka tatakutin ka na nila na pag hindi ka nagbayad sa amin, ganun ganun. Ganun yung gang nila. Maganda. Sabi ko nga ibang iba si Vice dito. Ibang iba na Ethel Booba na ipapakita natin kasi this time mapapakita naman natin kasi totoo eh, totoong nangyayari. So ipapakita namin kung ano yung ibang klaseng maibibigay ni Vice,” Coco explained.

Apart from his best friend, Coco said he is also looking forward to working with the other performers as well. “Naku (laughs) actually na-e-excite ako sobra dun sa episode namin na gagawin ni Vice Ganda kasi andun sila Ethel, sila Chokoleit, si Lassy at MC. Sabi ko nga I’m sure sasakit yung ulo ko sa kakatawa pero para iba naman po,” he added.

Coco also knows this would be a good opportunity for their show to tackle issues regarding homosexuality. “Puwede po. Honestly isa na yun sa naka-lineup sa amin. Kasi wala namang masama dun eh. Maganda nga rin na napag-uusapan yung ganung bagay,” he said.
