MANILA, Philippines – Action star Robin Padilla said he is willing to be relegated to a sidekick role – but only if the lead actor is Vhong Navarro.

During a press conference for the first anniversary of the sitcom “Toda Max,” Padilla told Push.com.ph: “Ang sinabi ko kay Vhong, ‘Pare ko, alam mo ba si Johnny Depp, gagawa ng [movie], sidekick lang siya. Pare gusto ko mag-sidekick sa ‘yo.’ ‘Yun ang sabi ko sa kanya.

“Siguro akala niya binobola ko lang siya,” he added. “Siguro nung mga last taping lang sabi ko, ‘Pare, ito na ang konsepto. Gawin natin, gawa tayong pelikula. Ako na ‘yung sidekick mo.”

Padilla said he wants to be Navarro’s sidekick in a movie because he believes in the actor-dancer’s capabilities.

The two stars, along with Pokwang and Angel Locsin, topbill “Toda Max,” which airs on ABS-CBN.

“Napakagaling ho ng taong ito eh. Hindi ko naman gagawin ‘yon kung sino lang na… baka batukan ko pa,” Padilla explained. “Pero dahil siya si Vhong Navarro at nakikita ko na napakagaling niya ho, talaga eh ibababa ko ang sarili ko.”

“Para sa ‘yo, tol, gagawin ko. Dahil naniniwala ako sa ‘yo na isang magandang proyekto ang gagamitin,” he ended.
