Charice’s second Hollywood film, Here Comes The Boom, is now screening in US theaters. She debuted in the live-action/animated film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. Her sophomore movie’s official trailer opens prominently showing her in the front row of her class.
Charice plays Malia de la Cruz with Kevin James Salma Hayek and another Filipino actor, Reggie Lee, who acts as her father. She is the student of Kevin, a high school biology teacher who become a successful mixed martial arts fighter. He needs to raise money to prevent the school’s music program from being axed at cash-strapped school.
Charice is thankful as acting in Here Comes The Boom gave a chance to meet Kevin and Salma. “I love all of them. I'm just very blessed because I didn't expect that they would be that nice and sweet and everything. So being with them on the set, I kept on telling them that if you guys gonna make another movie, please, please pick me, pick me.”
