THERE’S a new comedy tandem in showbiz with the team-up of Zanjoe Marudo and Empoy Marquez in the new Star Cinema movie, “Kusina Kings.”

According to the two actors, it wasn’t difficult to get that comedic timing between them because it just comes out naturally on set.

“Nagwo-work na kung paano kami sa totoong buhay. Ganun na rin ang dapat gawin namin sa movie lalo na ito ang una naming tandem,” said Zanjoe.

“On-cam, off-cam, ganun kami ni Z. Yung batuhan namin ng linya…Wala kami hinahanap na bagong ano…Nandun na sa reality ang dapat namin ikilos sa shooting namin,” added Empoy.

Since the two have already worked together in other projects, they know each other quite well to make it easy to get that chemistry onscreen. Zanjoe shared that his first project with ABS-CBN was with Empoy, along with other films.

“Ganun kasi kapag may nakita ka na isang tao kahit bago kakilala pa lang parang makikita mo agad ang connection,” Zanjoe said. “Siguro dahil pareho kami taga-probinsya at laking kalye, nagkokonek agad kami parehas.”

Being a model and then actor originally, Zanjoe has less experience in making people laugh. However, Empoy commented that he was able to see Zanjoe’s comedic skills in “Kusina Kings.”

“Yung pagmamahal niya sa trabaho, yung dedication niya… Nakita ko na versatile siyang actor. Puwede sa drama, puwede sa comedy. Kahit saan puwede siya,” Empoy said.
