Actor Patrick Garcia came face to face with TV host Luis Manzano when the latter interviewed him on Entertainment Live on January 14, reports. Patrick had just transferred from GMA-7 back to his home network, ABS-CBN, to work on new projects. He is the father of Alex Jazz, actress Jennylyn Mercado's son, while Luis is Jen's current boyfriend.

The two were amiable with each other during the interview, and Patrick expressed his willingness to work with both Luis and Jennylyn in the future.
"Depende sa 'yo? (It depends on you?)" Patrick first said after Luis asked him if he was okay with doing a project with them.

"Sa akin, okay lang, kaya kong magsulat ng script (It's okay with me. I can even write the script)," Luis quipped, to which Patrick replied, "Okay lang naman sa akin. (It's also fine with me.)"

Patrick also stated that he was all right with Jazz entering showbiz--as long as that was what he wanted. "Kung anong gusto niya, siya siguro magdedesisyon. Siguro kung gusto niyang mag-artista. (Whatever he wants, he can decide for himself. If he wants to be an actor, then so be it."

As for the harsh realities of showbiz, Patrick said Jen will be there if anyone hurts Jazz. "Siyempre poprotektahan ni Jen yung anak ko. Pero siguro kung ano talaga yung gusto ng anak ko. (Of course, Jen will protect my son. But, really, the decision [to enter showbiz] depends on whatever my son wants.)"
