Charice Talks New Movie ‘Here Comes the Boom’ & Possibility of ‘Glee’ Return (Exclusive)
Charice fans will not doubt come out in droves this weekend to see her big feature film debut in Here Comes the Boom, so Teen.com decided to ask her a few questions about her latest project and some other fun topics!
In the film, Charice plays a student whose school is experiencing some major budget cuts, specifically in after-school programs, so one brave teacher (played by Paul Blart: Mall Cop funny man Kevin James) decides to start mixed martial arts fighting to raise money. Though the fighting is risky, he ends up inspiring the whole student body. In addition to being one of the most heartfelt movies of the fall, you’ll get to hear Charice belt out a new tune on the film’s soundtrack.
Read on for Teen.com’s full Q&A with Charice where we talk about the film, her Halloween plans, and much more!
Teen: What are you doing for Halloween?
Charice: I will put on my darkest and scariest costume and scare the neighbors! I’m obsessed with ghost stories so it’s the perfect holiday for me.
Teen: Here Comes the Boom is all about extra-curricular programs. What club would you be in and why?
Of course I would be in the music club – that’s why the message in this film is so perfect for me. Music saves a lot of people so it’s a shame it’s often not given the priority it deserves in school and education. I would also join a dance club and a computer nerdy club.
Teen: Other big stars like Henry Winkler and Salma Hayek are also in HCTB. Who would you love to work with that you haven’t yet and why?
Charice: The list is endless, I don’t even know where to begin in listing them. Let’s just say I love comedy and also action heroes.
Teen: Over the last year, your style’s definitely changed. Who are some of your celeb fashion/style icons?
Charice: I’m inspired by lots of different fashion icons but I’m not really someone who admires someone because they have a specific name. I also go with how I feel inside, what makes me feel good. It’s important to find your own style and experiment with style and fashion.
Teen: Last year, Sunshine Corazon stole the show(s) on Glee. Have you seen any of this season? Is Sunshine ever coming back?
Charice: I’ve seen some of this season and still love it. I have no idea if Sunshine will come back.
