Hey TWIST girls,
So Random!, a revamp of the hit show Sonny With A Chance, has been getting rave reviews! In honor of the series' evolution, we wanted to check in with star, Brandon Smith, to get the inside scoop on the new season! Check it out below!
TWIST: Give us the inside scoop: what's it really like to work on So Random!?
Brandon: It's one of the most fulfilling experiences that I've had! With the new format, the cast can be creative and work in the world of improv all while having a live audience right there!
TWIST: Do you relate to your character, Nico Harris, at all?
Brandon: We're similar in that we're both very charismatic! We love entertaining people and making people laugh. And we're also ladies men! [Laughs] It's really fun to bring some of myself to the character!
TWIST: Sounds like it! So, is So Random! still anything like Sonny With A Chance then?
Brandon: Each season is like a chapter, and with each, we hope to grow and become funnier. The writers on our show know our individual strengths and weaknesses and they write so that we can emphasize our hidden talents! It'll be similar because we're certainly going to be bringing the funny but it's going to be times 30!
TWIST: Sounds awesome! Is it strange no longer having Demi Lovato on set? Do you miss her?
Brandon: Definitely! Demi is a sister of mine - our friendship will never change. We'll always be brother and sister. Not having her on the show is unfortunate but now the dynamic is that of an SNL. This is a group of cast members who, I believe, is the new wave of comedy. Your next Jack Black, Jim Carrey and Tom Cruise. We're really excited for the opportunity to collaborate - to celebrate the power of 'we.'
TWIST: That's great! Can you give us any spoilers of what to expect this season?
Brandon: Not only will you see people who do the funniest impressions and various other things, but we've also got the hottest musical guests, your favorite A-list celebrities and your favorite sports players. We're bringing on people we've met throughout the years of working in this industry and people who have kids who loved the show before and love what we do!
TWIST: We can't wait to see who makes a special appearance! Thanks Brandon!
Brandon: Thanks TWIST!
