Now that Dingdong Dantes is married, we look farther the years and see what may come after he ties the knot with his beloved Marian Rivera. For this particular entry, we look at two fields where Dantes is most likely to flourish.
Be it starring in a film or producing one, Dingdong Dantes' fame and fortune in the movies are most likely to elevate.
He can be a 'suki' to Metro Manila Film Festival yearly. He started with a movie with Star Cinema where he won festival's best actor. Then with his own film outfit Agostodos Productions in partnership with Reality Entertainment and GMA Films via Tiktik The Aswang Chronicles. This year, he co-produced and starred in the second installment Kubot. He has gained a platform in the MMFF, probably taking the slot of Sen. Bong Revilla.
The benefits about his Aswang Chronicles series:
1. There are more Aswang species that our country has. So he can really make it a yearly entry for the MMFF.
2. Dantes raised the bar by producing excellent fiction films. Not substandard.
So while he can still pull off a TV soap opera granted a brilliant material like Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, Dantes is most likely to soar higher in the silver screen. Our hope though is that GMA Films would give him a movie material like what they gave to Cesar Montano in the past-- Jose Rizal and Muro Ami.
Despite the denial, The Outsider believes that his route is still going politics. When his name started to tag alog PNoy thru the YES foundation, one can predict where he is really going.
But what's wrong with politics for a Dingdong Dantes? Let's enumerate reasons why politics is not a bad route for him.
In his showbiz career, there was not a publicity as muddy as the others. No news on 'anak sa labas'. No sexual identity crisis. No 'playboy' rumor. So far, his integrity as far as face value is in tact.
He has a mind that can carry the load. He's smart enough. He won't be a puppet.
He's rich. He has a good source of income from showbiz alone. Good chance he won't corrupt.
Dingdong Dantes is one of the country's actors who climbed the way to the top, remained loyal to his network and maintained his image. Indeed, a fulfilled man. Best wishes to him and Marian Rivera.
