MANILA -- Comedian Vice Ganda is all praises for actor Richard Yap, who will be his co-star in the sequel of hit film "The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin."

"Okay siya, swabe lang, hindi OA, sakto sakto lang, sakto sa role sakto sa okasyon at maganda ang personality," the "It's Showtime" host said of the "Be Careful With My Heart" star.

"Gusto ko si Richard di lang as an actor kung hindi as a person -- sobrang bait at mature. Kapag nag-uusap kami ay sobrang mature. Nakakatuwa siya," he added.

According to Vice Ganda, shooting for the movie, which is part of this year's Metro Manila Film Festival, will start on Friday, August 1.

The host-comedian said he really wanted to do a movie with Yap -- and vice-versa. "Natuloy na kaya ang saya," he said.

Apart from Yap, Vice Ganda said he is also lucky to have Kris Aquino's son, James "Bimby" Yap Jr., in the movie.

"Sobrang support si Kris kaya nakakatuwa," he noted.
