"2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten" marks Jameson Blake's on-screen debut, and also his first venture into being a little bit more daring.
In "2 Cool" Jameson had to do a masturbation scene with his co-star Khalil Ramos and during the film's press conference last February 25, the Hashtags member explained how much courage it took for him to do the scene.
"'Yung masturbation scene na ‘yan, I thought twice about it," he confessed.
Jameson also disclosed that he had a "talk" with the film's director, Petersen Vargas, in order to get an idea of the scene's "purpose" in the film.
He continued, "I was thinking how to pull it off na maayos. I just kept thinking...'just do it'. I didn't want to overthink.”
Jameson's performance as Maximillian Snyder in "2 Cool" won him the Best Supporting Actor award at the 2016 Cinema One Originals Film Festival.
"2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten" is a film set in the late 90s in Angeles, Pampanga, almost a decade after the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo.
Felix Salonga (Khalil), a friendless achiever, is bent on topping his class to elevate his status from a resettlement area.
Magnus (Ethan Salvador) & Maxim (Jameson) Snyder, half-American brothers, want nothing but to escape life from the Philippines with their prostitute mother and live with their American GI father in the US.
The Snyder brothers each have their own way of reaching this dream. One struggles to finish high school with the promise of America after graduation while the mischievous one has a dark, sinister plan. As Felix develops a relationship with the brothers, he unearths desires within him he never confronted before. He slowly learns that behind the manicured lawns of “Little America,” each of his actions can lead to fatal consequences.
"2 Cool 2 Be Forgotten" hits theaters on March 15 under the distribution of Star Cinema.
