First thing's first, what was your favorite part about being a vampire?Well I'd have to say other than the pale makeup it would have to be the FANGS! They made them look super authentic by matching the color of my teeth and gums to the prosthetic. Luckily they didn't have to color any of them yellow! It was also fun to play a grumpy old man in a kid's body. I had SO much fun on the harness for my death scene with Chris Meloni, pretending to fly. I really tried to make sure I exploded very nicely. Have you had any memorable fan meetings yet? I made an appearance as Gumball at a kid's birthday. The venue had zip lines, XBOX Kinect, ropes so it was a lot of fun. During the autograph signing, a lot of the party-goers and their parents were asking me for pointers in show-business!
Speaking of "Gumball", do you have a favorite catch-phrase now that you are performing the voice of the main character?I was a huge fan of the show before I got the job so I knew my favorite phrase even before I started! It has to be, "What the what?!" Classmates at school would say it to me when the news was released. I was like, "Oh, everyone knows [that I'm on the show]!" By the way, it's really cool to be able to go to the recording studio wearing whatever I want, even my pajamas if I wanted!
Moving on to your time filming for "The Goldbergs", what was it like learning about the magical time known as "the 80s"?From the hairstyles to the interesting wardrobe, it was really an experience. Slicked back hair and braided leather belts seemed funny to me. I really enjoyed learning some of the slang they used back then! My favorite thing had to be all of the video and arcade games we had on set, like Nintendo and Pacman. OH, and the computer monitors were huge back then, too! [When asked about working with Wendi McLendon-Covey] Oh she was a PARTY on set! When she met me she shook my hand and we ended up making a secret handshake! It was a secret to me that we were even going to be making one! After one scene in between takes she randomly asked me, "Do you like zucchini?" I couldn't keep it together because the question was so random! She apologized but I knew she was trying to get me to keep laughing! @HopkinsJacob5!
