Atom Araullo just couldn't pass up on "Citizen Jake."
The journalist-turned-actor spoke about his upcoming debut film, which was directed by the legendary Mike de Leon on his comeback piece, in a recent interview with PUSH, and got candid about why he couldn't let this particular project slip from his fingers.
"Feeling ko kung tumanggi ako pagsisisihan ko siya habang buhay. I think it's a very courageous film in terms of the theme that it tackles," he said.
In "Citizen Jake" Atom plays 34-year-old journalist Jake Herrera, a character whom he helped develop.
He explained, "Maswerte ako dahil sa kasama akong nagsulat ng pelikula. Kaya nakilala ko 'yung character nang mabuti, si Jake Herrera inside out. Pero dahil journalist din si Jake hindi ko na kailangan aralin..."
Atom is among the hosts of morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda."
