Controversial actor Baron Geisler recently told PEP that there won't be a rematch between him and fellow actor Kiko Matos. Baron and Kiko tried to settle their tiff by engaging in a Universal Reality Combat Championship (URCC) "grudge match" last year. The result of the underwhelming smackdown was a draw.
Baron declared for the nth time that he was already done with his disruptive shenanigans. "I decided na I'd rather concentrate on theater and discipline [myself] sa industriya," he said.
Baron is part of the musical play titled Aurelio Sidisyoso, A Rock Sarswela. PEP notes: "Directed by Chris Millado, the play is based on the life of Filipino playwright and dramatist Aurelio Tolentino who was arrested for tearing the American flag during the American colonization of the Philippines."
Baron referred to the play as his personal therapy: "Rehab ko na 'yun sa pagiging actor. Kasi for a time masyado ako naging kampante. Not knowing, na-realize ko, 'Oh my God! Kinalawang na ako and medyo tumatanda na ako.' Sana 'di tanggalin sa akin ni God. I need to take care of my talent, that's the reason why I auditioned."
When asked if he is finally back on track after all the controversies he got involved in, he replied, "One day at a time. Let's see where this ship takes me."
Baron also stars in the film Jay, which is one of the featured works in the Venice Film Festival in Manila which runs from July 26 to July 31.
