The STACKS got our hands on this EXCLUSIVE photo from tonight’s episode, AND this exclusive Q&A with a few of the stars!

Q: If you weren’t an actor and could be anything in the world, what would you be?
Peyton List: 
I would be a set designer. I’m adventurous, inquisitive, and curious. I have a very creative and imaginative mind. I love to conceptualize a certain theme in my head and work towards bringing that idea to life.
Skai Jackson: I would be a fashion designer because I love creating new looks and also making clothes. It’s my passion.
Karan Brar: If I wasn’t an actor and I could be anything in the world I would probably be a baker! I know it sounds kind of odd but I have a big sweet tooth and I love cake!
Cameron Boyce: If I could be anything, I’d be a Los Angeles Laker. I’ve loved basketball and especially the Lakers my whole life. I’ve actually played on the floor at Staples Center for a charity celebrity game. I couldn’t stop talking about it afterwards. I’m 15 years old and I still play in my driveway and shoot before the clock in my head runs out.

Will you be watching the new episode of Jessie tonight? Leave a comment!

MKTO Interview

MKTOInterview with pop duo MKTO!

I have to admit I’m a little late jumping aboard the MKTO train. But now I am SUCH a fan. They’re awesome! I’ve been listening to “Classic” on repeat nonstop for the past three days. I think I might have a problem!

Anyway, MKTO is comprised of Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller, who met on the set of the TV show Gigantic. After playing best friends on the show, they became real-life friends and realized that they wanted to make music together. Their debut album dropped earlier this year and it is GREAT!

MKTO has opened for Emblem3 and they are now embarking on their first headlining tour. Catch our super-exclusive interview here! Continue reading

Goosebumps: The Movie

PopcornJack Black Will Star in the New Goosebumps Movie!

Way back when I was younger, there was a TV show based on the Goosebumps series. I remember the first episode I ever saw (“Stay Out of the Basement”) and I remember being totally scared! But I loved it, too. I’ve since seen nearly every episode, and they’re all great.

I was really sad when the show ended. So that’s why I was very, very excited when I found out that my favorite spooky series is being turned into a movie!

And you’ll never guess who the star is . . . Continue reading

Maia Mitchell Interview

Posted by at 1:41 am in Celebrities | Permalink

Maia MitchellInterview with Maia Mitchell from Teen Beach Movie

Maia Mitchell is one of the coolest girls on TV. The 20-year-old Australian actress and singer won over American audiences when she starred in last summer’s runaway hit, Teen Beach Movie. We caught up with Maia to talk about her new show, her real-life family, and the possibility of another Teen Beach Movie (!!!).

Q: Are you doing another Teen Beach Movie?

A: It hasn’t been confirmed yet, but if there is one, I’ll be in it. I literally haven’t heard anything or seen a script. I don’t even know if screenwriters have finished writing a script. I know that there are a bunch of different ideas at the moment, but you might even know more than I know! [UPDATE! Production on Teen Beach Movie 2 begins in July, reuniting the cast of Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell, Grace Phipps, Garrett Clayton and John DeLuca. It will air in 2015.]

Q: Were you surprised by the success of Teen Beach Movie?

A: Yes, I definitely was. I’m very proud of it. You just never know what is going to be a hit and what’s not. It was promoted in the right way and it got to the right audience!

Q: What does your little brother think of your success?

A: He’s not fazed in the slightest! He wants to be a professional cricket player. He plays cricket for a team in New South Wales back in Australia. He sleeps with a cricket bat…he has cricket books under his pillow. All he cares about in the whole world is cricket.

Q: Was Jessie the first thing you did for Disney?

A: I did a pilot for Disney called Zombies and Cheerleaders, which didn’t get picked up, and that was originally what I had auditioned for before Teen Beach Movie. I shot that pilot and Teen Beach Movie at the same time two years ago, and then I shot Jessie a year later.

Q: How was it working with Debby Ryan?

A: It was fun. Debby is a really good friend of mine. It was very comfortable even though I had never done that kind of acting before. The kids are really cool…. the set is really cool. It’s definitely a family dynamic.

Austin & Ally Would You Rather Quiz

Posted by at 1:43 am in Celebrities, Would You Rather | Permalink

Austin and Ally photoAustin & Ally Would You Rather?

He’s an outgoing fun-loving singer and dancer, and she’s an awkward, shy songwriter. Put them together and you have the TV show Austin & Ally! It’s one of the hottest shows out there, and if you’ve watched it, you know why.

They’ve had hit songs on the show, and on the radio. They’ve had a crossover episode with Disney Channel’s Jessie. They’ve been in movies. (Who could forget Ross Lynch in Teen Beach Movie?) But have they ever had their own Would You Rather? I don’t think so . . . until this moment!

So without further ado, Would You Rather . . .

1. Rock out to the song “Double Take” OR “Turn it Up?”
2. Hang out with Dez OR Trish?
3. Work at the beach club OR the music store?
4. Go to an Austin & Ally concert OR an R5 concert? (R5 being Ross Lynch’s band in real life!)
5. Go out to dinner with Ross Lynch OR Harry from One Direction?
6. Be behind the scenes like Ally OR kickin’ it onstage like Austin?
7. Have the next guest star be Selena Gomez OR Pharrell Williams?
8. Have chronic bad breath (like Kira in the “Ferris Wheels & Funky Breath” episode) OR accidentally drink massage oil (like Ally in the “Spas & Spices” episode)?

Let us know what YOU would rather do, Austin & Ally style, in the Comments below!
