Don't mind the big differences in their looks (Jericho Rosales is moreno but not chinito while Sec. Jesse Robredo is chinito but not moreno). With Echo's exceptional acting talent, I'm sure he'll do wonders to the role.

On Twitter, Sec. Jesse's wife Leni has revealed that the Robredo family
approves of Jericho Rosales, who's also a Bicolano, playing the former
Naga City Mayor and DILG Secretary on MMK. (Sec. Jesse Robredo died in a plane crash last August)

According to her tweet response to Angeli Pangalinan-Valenciano, head
of Manila Genesis who manages Jericho Rosales, Atty. Leni said she's sure Jesse will also agree with Jericho portraying himself.

lenirobredo: "@AngeliPV @jericho_rosales hi angeli!! Yes, we were
told. Jericho is our kababayan and i'm sure Jesse will agree with the
choice ;-("

Playing Leni Robredo meanwhile is Kaye Abad.

Before taking the Jesse Robredo role, Jericho Rosales has already portrayed boxer Manny Pacquiao in a movie, which earned him 2 Best
Actor awards, and as singer Erik Santos also on MMK. -
