What's New With JC De Vera?

New fave tune, new fave expression, new TV network? The erstwhile GMA-7 star talks about jumping over the fence to TV5 as the station’s matinee idol, among other things new in his life.
MCSJCDVM.jpgWe've got a lot of catching up to do with hot young hunk JC de Vera! He was last seen on this website dishing out women woes as Cosmo's December 2009 Man on Fire, and back then, he was a GMA-7 contract star. But JC's stay at the network hasn't been without hitches, and when his contract ended, he was ready to spread his wings and fly...to another network, that is.

Enter the TV5 execs, who have been searching for a matinee idol to add to their roster of talents, a bill that JC seemed to fit. "The stars aligned," TV5 Head of Entertainment and Creative Services Perci Intalan said. "We didn't have to wait long. Nag-expire 'yung kontrata niya [with GMA]." JC went on to sign a non-exclusive contract with TV5 and received a warm welcome from the network's team.

This early, the young star already has three shows lined up on TV5, with a fourth one in the works, all designed to showcase his versatility as an actor and groom him to be the next big matinee idol. You'll be seeing this young star on TV5 in a gag show, a musical variety show, a drama anthology series, and maybe even an action series!

At the press conference held to announce his transfer to TV5, Cosmo got some face time with the rising star and asked him what else is cracking in his life right now.
