MANILA, Philippines - Child actor Bugoy Cariño is set to topbill a new ABS-CBN television series next year.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Cariño revealed that he will be playing the title role in the newest ABS-CBN teleserye “E-Boy.”

“E-Boy,” according to him, is somehow similar to the Japanese animated robot “Astroboy.”

“Kaya po siya pinangalanang E-Boy kasi parang electronic boy,” he explained.

“Si E-Boy po ay isang batang robot, mabait po at saka po matalino. Parang tao din po sila na may puso din.”

Cariño first stepped into the limelight after he won the Star Circle Kid Quest in 2009.

This upcoming ABS-CBN show, according to Carino, will be the "big break" he has been waiting for.

“E-Boy” is set to air on ABS-CBN Channel 2 in 2012. -- Report from Boy Abunda, ABS-CBN News
