Independent film actor Kiko Matos and actor Baron Geisler are set to meet for a rematch on June 25; this time inside the MMA cage. Surprisingly, amidst their much-awaited fight, Matos is open to working with Geisler in a film.
In an interview with Inquirer.net, Matos revealed that he is open to the possibility of working together with Geisler, commenting that he has perceived Geisler as someone able of delivering impressive performance.
Matos, a half-Portuguese, said that whenever he is given a project with Geisler, he would make it a point not to engage in any fight with the actor. However, once the project is done, he is open to having another fight if the need arises.
“[While working with Baron] of course, I’ll back down [from any fight]. I won’t get into a fight while working with him because it’s work eh. Just set aside our differences and the main purpose is to finish the project, and then we can fight after the project. I would love to work with him, he’s a very good actor, I’d like to learn from him also. He’s a senior,” Matos said.
Matos has been known to be a versatile actor, able to carry on any role, including that of being gay. “Of course I will, I mean if you’re secure with your sexuality, there’s nothing to be worried about,” Matos said.
And if that’s the case, Matos is willing to be paired with any guy, including his opponent.
“I’d like to work with Coco Martin, Jake Cuenca, Epi Quizon and, oh, Baron Geisler,” he said.
He said, however, that he is only willing to do intimate scenes with other guys, especially with Geisler in particular, if and only if the material is compelling enough.
“If the script calls for it. I think that would be a good film. I think everybody would want to see that, from fighters turned lovers,” Matos said, laughing out loud.
On the other side of the coin, Matos, being the charismatic one, is inevitable to being paired with a few personalities in the entertainment industry. However, if he is given the chance to choose his leading lady, he would definitely pick it up from his top three.
“I’ll definitely want to work with Anne Curtis, Jessy Mendiola and Glaiza de Castro,” he said.
