MANILA -- Before becoming an actor, Jeric Raval revealed that he originally wanted to be a rapper like his idol Francis Magalona.

Appearing on "Magandang Buhay" on Tuesday, Raval said he even auditioned as a rapper for OctoArts but was told that he could be an action star and the rest, as they say, is history.

To prove that he has what it takes to be a rapper, Raval gamely rapped the theme song of his 1992 movie "Boboy Salonga: Batang Tondo."

Raval also showed off his impersonation sills as he copied the voice of the late comedian Babalu and the late actor Fernando Poe Jr.
