The award-winning actor recently served as a judge on the noontime show, "It's Showtime."
"Ang sarap ng pakiramdam na makapagbihis muli sa dati kong dressing room," Montano said during the premiere of his latest action movie, "Hitman."
Montano, who used to host of the game show, "Singing Bee," on ABS-CBN, is expected to star in a new series for the network.
"Pinagkatiwala ko na ang negosasyon sa pagbabalik sa kapamilya network sa bago kong manager na si Vic del Rosario," he said.
Meanwhile, Montano clarified that he wasn't the one who told his son with actress Teresa Loyzaga to adopt "Diego Montano" as his screen name.
"Desisyon n'ya 'yon. Sabi ko ipagpaalam niya sa mama niya," Montano said. "Gusto niya talaga kasing mag-action kasama ko."
Diego owned up to the decision to adopt his father's family name.
"I told my mom and she said it's all up to me," Diego said. "I wanted to know more about movies outside the drama I'm doing."
Diego is also part of his father's movie, "Hitman."
