John Lloyd Cruz is Armando Solis on ‘I Love Betty La Fea’?

It's been more than a month of guessing game and tomorrow ABS-CBN will finally reveal who will play the coveted role of Armando Solis, Betty's boss, on the highly-anticipated Philippine adaptation of Colombia's most popular export (other than drugs of course).

The announcement of who will play Armando was supposed to be aired on ASAP a couple of weeks ago but for certain reasons, it was postponed. The names of Piolo Pascual, Jake Cuenca, Gabby Concepcion and John Lloyd Cruz surfaced on tabloids and blogs as the shoo-ins for the role.

If we are to deliberate each one, we can pick the actor with the most-possibilities of bagging the role. First is Piolo Pascual. He is about to do a movie with Angel Locsin right now and playing the role of Armando could be a conflict of interest. The same can be said about Gabby Concepcion who is starring as ‘Rafael’ in Iisa Pa Lamang. There’s no actor or actress in ABS-CBN who starred in two different primetime series that are running at the same period of time. So Gabby’s out for sure. Jake Cuenca is about to star in a soap opera opposite Angelica Panganiban and Alessandra de Rossi so it’s probably not Jake also.

John Lloyd Cruz, on the other hand, just finished the movie with Sarah Geronimo. He has no primetime project so far and the reason why ABS-CBN postponed the announcement of the “Armando” role was because John Lloyd’s movie is about to begin showing at that time.

And with the current series of teasers showing Armando’s back, our best bet is none other than John Lloyd Cruz, Bea Alonzo’s original love team. But i could be wrong, of course.

Here is the teaser:

The revelation will finally air tomorrow on The Buzz.
