The prospect of a movie star becoming president of the Philippines has triggered fears of a military coup.
The last president of the Philippines, who was also a movie star, ended up being indicted for embezzling millions of dollars. Now Filipinos are being asked to trust another actor with presidential ambitions. But in a country where a third of the seats in the national Senate are held by celebrities, fame may be all he needs to succeed.
