Kelli Berglund in How to Build a Better BoyHow to Build a Better Boy

Get ready for a new Disney Channel movie starring Kelli Berglund, China Anne McClain, and Marshal Williams. How to Build a Better Boy premieres at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 15. In the movie, best friends Mae and Gabby are super-smart tech whizzes but not very popular in school. When mean-girl Neveah (played by Ashley Argota) teases Mae about not having a date to the Homecoming Dance, the friends use a computer to program the perfect boy. What could possibly go wrong? Umm. . . lots.

First let’s meet the boy, played by Marshall Williams. Check out this video.

Now, let’s hear from Kelli.

Q: What’s the most embarrassing that’s happened to you?
Kelli: One time I was filming a scene, and I slipped and I fell right on my face. Billy [who plays her brother Chase on Lab Rats] and I tripped over each other and we just landed face-down in opposite directions. It was really funny! It was on camera, but we just got up and laughed it off.

Q: Can you tell me one thing that you think would help to make the world a better place?Kelli: I think everyone should stop being so judgmental of everybody. I think if we started loving more–I honestly think that would definitely help make the world a better place.

Q: What’s the best book you ever read (besides this one)?
Kelli: The Maze Runner (for ages 12 and up) and they are actually turning it into a movie, which I am really excited about. It was so good. It’s kind of similar to The Hunger Games (for ages 12 and up) but the storyline is completely different. It involves a lot of action and character development. I actually auditioned to be in the movie! And I was like, “I read the book and I’m prepared,” but I ended up not booking it. But it was cool just to audition for it.

Watch Kelli talking about The Maze Runner in this brand new video.

Zendaya in Zapped

Posted by at 10:13 am in Celebrities | Permalink

zendayaZendaya’s new movie Zapped!

Everybody loves Zendaya Coleman. That’s a given. She’s so talented at everything! She sings; she dances, and she acts. It’s kind of unreal since she is only 17 years old! Even if you didn’t watch Shake it Up, you’ve probably heard her music. (I’m a super-fan of “Replay.”) Her new movie Zapped premieres on Disney Channel tonight at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Zapped is based on the book Boys Are Dogs, which is about a girl named Zoey who discovers that the dog-training app she downloaded onto her phone gives her the ability to give commands to . . . boys!

Zendaya surprised fans by showing up at a special screening of the movie. I’d say they were pretty thrilled to meet her! (I would be, too!) How awesome is that? She seems like the nicest person, like, ever.
