AJ Perez in 'Cinco' | Rico Yan remembered in AJ 's death

AJ Perez made a total of 10 movies, most of which were box-office hits starring the country's biggest stars.

He was part of Judy Ann Santos-Ryan Agoncillo starrers "Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo" and its sequel "Sakal, Sakal, Saklolo", worked with the MegaStar Sharon Cuneta and the Comedy Queen Ai-Ai delas Alas in "BFF (Best Friends Forever), then starred in "Bahay Kubo" with Maricel Soriano and again with Ai-Ai, Toni Gonzaga, Sam Milby and ex-President Joseph Estrada in "Ang Tanging Pamilya".

In 2010, AJ did 3 movies: "Babe I Love You", "Cinco" and "Mamarazzi".

And probably, the 5-episode movie "Cinco" was his most memorable film, where he played a lead role in BRASO episode, as new fraternity recruits along with Sam Concepcion and Robi Domingo.

It's kinda saddening that AJ had to die this early. He had a bright future in showbiz. On Star Magic 2011 Catalogue, they described AJ as the one who is next line.

True enough, coz he was already being groomed by ASB-CBN as its next big star, when he played leading man to Jessy Mendiola in "Sabel" and more projects were line up for him.

We will surely miss you AJ.


Meanwhile, a lot of people took notice of the many similarities between AJ Perez and Rico Yan, who died in 2002, or how AJ's death reminds us of Rico Yan especially when that picture, which was posted long ago by AJ himself in his Facebook profile, circulated hours after he died.

First, they were both Kapamilya actors.

Secondly, they both endorsed Molecules shirts.

Third, they both died in Holy Week. Rico died on Good Friday, while AJ died on Palm Sunday.

Fourth, They were both asleep when they died.

Fifth, AJ and Rico were both LaSallista.

Sixth, AJ's wake is being held at La Salle Greenhills, where Rico Yan's wake was also held.

Seventh, AJ will also be buried at Manila Memorial Park where Rico was also buried.

I just wanna add some more. Both AJ and Rico were well-bred. Or should I mention that they're both cute and charming?

Rico Yan was also DepEd's Youth Spokesperson while AJ was supposed to be chosen as DepEd spokesperson, as revealed on Twitter by Ogie Diaz. "Dapat pala, si AJ Perez ay gagawing spokesperson ng DepEd at siya ring choice ng Star Magic for DepEd", he said.

These pics also bring some creepy feeling to me. Same poses!
