Now known as the ‘Primetime King of Philippine TV,’ did you know that Coco Martin had his fair share of rejections in the past? The Kapamilya actor shared in a 2014 interview with Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino for the now defunct show 'Aquino & Abunda Tonight' how ABS-CBN rejected him twice for potential roles upon learning about his sexy image. This was probably around the time when Coco Martin was still the ‘Prince of Indie Films.’

Watch the interview below.


And watch this interview with Vice Ganda where we find out how Rodel Pacheco Nacianceno (his real name) became Coco “parang pinag-tripan lang” Martin.
