After playing on the hit American musical comedy series Glee season 2 as the foreign exchange student Sunshine Corazon, Charice is once again cast as a student on a film. It is the upcoming Hollywood action-comedy movie Here Comes The Boom where she plays as a student named Malia alongside Salma Hayek.
Charice announced last Monday (Tuesday in Manila) in her Twitter account, saying: “Done with the movie!!! It was nice working with everybody! Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Henry Winkler, everybody! Now it’s party time. :]”
In an interview of the singer-actress with USA Today last May 24, Charice revealed some details about her character in the movie.
“Henry Winkler plays a music teacher, and Kevin James is another high school teacher who sidelines as a martial arts fighter to save the music program. I play a student. She’s a little like Sunshine; she’s a brainiac and her father wants her to go home to the Philippines to work in a restaurant,” stated by Charice.
Directed by Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer director), Here Comes the Boom is set to be released next year 2012.
