Actor Piolo Pascual will be testing his acting chops anew in an upcoming ABS-CBN TV series called Padre de Pamilya, in which he plays a priest. Also in the cast is actor Jericho Rosales who used to work with Piolo in the group The Hunks. Rumors abound of a rivalry between them, but in an interview with, Piolo denied the reports.

Piolo said he and Jericho are friends and that they're both excited to be working together. "We have been in the business for more than 10 years," he is quoted as saying. "We started almost [at] the same time, so it’s refreshing to be working with somebody na kapatid mo, na kakilala mo na kaibigan mo na kumportable kang kasama. (We started almost [at] the same time, so it's refreshing to be working with a sibling, a friend you're comfortable with.) "

Piolo admitted that comparisons couldn't be avoided, but it didn't matter because the two of them approached acting differently.

He also added that the two of them are too old to resort to competing against each other. "I don’t see any point [in] doing that. Hindi naman na kami bata para magtagisan, ‘di ba? (We're no longer kids, so we don't need to show off, right?)"
