And in his guesting on Wednesday night's "Tonight With Boy Abunda," he got the shock of his life when he was able to talk with Wurtzbach via Facebook video chat.

"Napapanood ko 'yung mga palabas niya, 'yung acting n'ya magaling talaga siya. I'm so proud of him," said Wurtzbach, who made the call from New York.

"I know he's going to be like one of the biggest leading men in the industry in the future . . . I know sisikat ka pa lalo."

De Leon was ecstatic talking with his celebrity crush.

"Gusto kong maging racer na," he quipped, referring to Wurztbach's boyfriend and race car driver Marlon Stockinger. 

The former Pinoy Big Brother housemate will be appearing in a new movie titled "G" wherein he will be playing a character of a football team captain with cancer.

In the movie, he came up with a very interesting bucket list that he plans to fulfill before he succumbs to his illness.
