Juan Direction to Debut in Acting via TV5’s New Sitcom ‘One of the Boys’

With the success of the first season of their widely-followed socio-experimental reality TV show, fans of Juan Direction will be delighted to hear that the five Fil-Brit hunks are now headed to a newer, bigger and crazier adventure as they star in the weekly sitcom, One of the Boys, which will soon air on TV5.

Having been YouTube sensations prior to being collectively known as Juan Direction, Daniel Marsh, Henry Edwards, Brian Wilson, Charlie Sutcliffe and Michael McDonnell all admit that while they are no strangers to the camera, their inclusion in One of the Boys is still their first foray into the world of acting and comedy.

“We are quite nervous about ‘acting’, but what is comforting is that the show’s director, Robert Quebral, encouraged us to just be our normal selves because that is how we were cast here in the first place, and how our followers came to love us,” shares Daniel, who plays group leader Daniel Lennon in One of the Boys.

Henry, who plays the role of race car champion driver Henry Potter, adds, “We are very thankful to TV5 for making us part of this great sitcom! This is a whole new side to Juan Direction that we are definitely excited to share with the viewers.”

One of the Boys is also top-billed by veteran comedian and host Joey de Leon, who plays Daddy Jerry or ‘DJ’—the father figure of the whole cast in the sitcom. TV5 drama princess Eula Caballero plays Gabi Silang, DJ’s only daughter who grew up in the company of boys.

Daniel adds, “I am sure that I speak for Juan Direction, and the whole cast really, when I say that working with Mr. Joey de Leon has been a great experience. I mean, we know that he is such a legend in local showbiz already, but the atmosphere in the set has been surprisingly fun since our first day of taping, thanks to him! And you know, we are actually learning a lot from Mr. Joey too—in delivering our lines, and in acting in general—and that is one more thing why we are really thankful for being part of One of the Boys.”

Rounding up the cast are Nadine Samonte (Jana Halliwel), Empoy (Aga), Benjo Leoncio (Marvic) and BJ ‘Tolits’ Forbes (Sunny).

Aside from the laughter and kilig the viewers can look forward to in One of the Boys, the sitcom will also highlight unique Filipino culture and values—something that is not often seen on television shows nowadays.
