James Maslow is best known as the star of the award winning music group BIG TIME RUSH and the Nickelodeon series of the same name. In the recently completed season of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars,” he was a fan favorite, fourth place finalist and the show’s last man standing. Maslow and his group last toured Latin America to sold out performances. His new series, “Sequestered,” premieres on Sony Crackle the week of August 5th followed by his first solo music project release in November. In an exclusive interview the young heartthrob reveals some DWTS secrets and his plans for a very bright future.

HOMBRE: Last man standing! How was your experience in “Dancing with the Stars”?
James Maslow:
Unlike anything I’ve experienced and a lot more fun. A lot more of everything. It was more difficult, more frustrating at times than I could have expected, but ultimately it was more rewarding.
It actually opened up a lot about myself. It helped me to further discover why I am the way I am today. And I think America was able to perceive me as the young driven man that I am, versus the young character and kid that I played for so many years on TV, so I’m really grateful.

H: Did choreography for Big Time Rush prepare you for DWTS?
JM:
We never did a ton because we were singing live and it had to be as complicated as all four of us could do well together, but it helped having a basis. Ballroom dancing and partner dancing is entirely a different story so understanding music and musicality which came from those aspects of my life was actually a lot more beneficial than any of the choreography and dance I’ve done before.

H: What performance stands out from the show?
JM:
I have to pick a few because it’s hard to pick just one. “Frozen,” the contemporary dance we did turned out to be one of the coolest dances and experiences I’ve ever had. It was the first dance where I didn’t have to learn specific techniques for ballroom dancing, rather it was subject to what I was capable of doing and what I was comfortable. It was the first dance where I expressed myself in the best way possible. It was the first perfect score of the season.
And lastly the freestyle once again because it was expressive of what I like. I felt that I got to tell a little bit more of my story to America which was really athletic and fun and adventurous and willing to take risks. Basically it’s fair to say that we won the freestyle because that’s the one dance that was voted back.

H: Who were you excited to share the stage with?
JM:
Honestly I was excited to see Drew Carey. He’s been around for so many years. I used to watch ‘Whose line is it anyway?” and was a fan of his work as a comedian. He was an absolute gentleman. He’s more successful than most people realize. He committed each time he was there, he tried really hard. Ninety percent of the cast really wanted to be there and the ones who stayed at the end absolutely did, but Drew was a great example of that. Even though technically he wasn’t a great dancer he was sure entertaining and he committed.

First Look at Crackle’s “Sequestered” & when it will Premiere

The digital network is debuting a new original series, Sequestered, and Yahoo TV has the first look at the show’s poster, featuring stars Jesse Bradford (Bring It On), Summer Glau (Arrow, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement), Heather Dubrow (The Real Housewives of Orange County), and James Maslow (Big Time Rush, Dancing With the Stars).

The 12-episode series follows a group of jurors confined to a hotel while deliberating a huge court case with life-changing implications. Judging by the poster, the jurors develop contentious relationships — hardly anybody is looking directly at anyone else, and there are side-eye glares to spare. “The premise for Sequestered is pretty unique; it’s not quite like any other TV show I’ve seen,” Bradford told Yahoo TV. “We tried to make each moment fast-paced and exhilarating. I’m curious to see if we get the same reaction from audiences that I had while reading the script. I’m glad to be a member of the Crackle family; we’re very lucky to have assembled such a talented cast and crew.” The first six episodes of Sequestered premiere Aug. 5 and the remaining six eps will be available Oct. 14. Crackle is becoming a major destination for original series; it already hosts Jerry Seinfeld’s acclaimed Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. “I’ve had such a great time working with this incredible team on such an exciting new show,” director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) told us. “The caliber of talent that we had the opportunity to work with is incredible, and we hope people will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed working on it.”

Crackle’s official description of Sequestered:
Danny Firmin (Bradford), a young attorney with a promising career, begins to uncover a major conspiracy behind his big case defending the alleged murderer of Governor Mark Bennett’s (Warburton) 8-year-old son. Sequestered juror Anna (Glau) is forced to choose between her beliefs and the safety of her family while deliberating the fate of a potentially innocent man. Surprising alliances form, sparking tensions and testing morals as Anna puts her life on the line to expose the conspiracy and find true justice for all involved.
