Entertainment, News
Many of the new teleseryes making their debut this month are of the usual, love-and-vengeance variety—but, “Sherlock Jr.” opts to take a bracingly different tack, focusing instead on “light action-comedy-fantasy,” and topbilling not just human actors, but also—a dog.

Entertainment, News
I remember interviewing James Corden in 2014 for “Into the Woods,” where he played the Baker. It was November. He was preparing to succeed Craig Ferguson as the host of “The Late Late Show.” While James enjoyed a career in film, TV and onstage in the United Kingdom, he wasn’t well-known in America.

Starting them off really young

Love advice from Glaiza, Jak and Lauren

Entertainment
I’m still in an Iloilo state of mind. I got a Dinagyang fiesta hangover. The culminating event of the Kapuso extravaganza was a mall show in SM Iloilo, featuring Glaiza de Castro, Lauren Young and Jak Roberto, who topbill GMA 7’s coming afternoon soap, “Contessa.” The fun trio was mobbed by their Ilonggo fans.
