James Maslow FanYour #1 Source for Big Time Rush's James Maslow

_12R0400_LE_2 This past year, Maslow appeared in Sequestered, which was a great deal of fun. “It was crazy trying to fit that in with the Dancing With the Stars schedule, but it was fun to work on a different project, and then I did two more films,” he said.
For Maslow, Dancing With the Stars was yet another fun experience. “It was different than everything I had done in my career. I got to learn a skill that otherwise I probably would have never partaken in. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of talented people. It also opened so many doors, in terms of audiences that didn’t know who I was before,” he said.

Through that experience on Dancing With the Stars, he was able to fulfill a young girl’s dream named Hannah, which was quite moving, especially since she invited him who her prom, but he made it up for her by bringing Hannah and her family to Los Angeles to watch the live dancing show. “That was really cool and an awesome opportunity to make somebody else’s day,” he said.

His new film, Seeds of Yesterday, will be coming out on April 12. “Filming that show was so much fun. It was a huge departure than the characters I played in television before. I am really excited to see it myself and what other people think about it and how they react,” he said.

Maslow’s known for his cover song videos on YouTube, which are quite popular with his fans. Most recently, he covered Jennifer Lawrence’s “The Hanging Tree.” “That was fun. I tried to pick an unconventional song and I put my own twist to it. I will keep doing covers and in the near future, I will be releasing original music,” he said.

In addition to Seeds of Yesterday, he will have another movie coming out later in the year called Wild for the Night. “I am very excited about them, since they are both different roles than the ones that I played in the past,” he said. Aside from his acting endeavors, Maslow started his own production company and he will be recording new music. “It will be a great year,” he said. “I accomplished a lot of my own personal goals.”

Our boy James is featured on the cover of Cliche’ Magazine‘s December/January 2015 Issue. In the issue you’ll find a great interview with James (along with some seriously handsome photos). You can read a snippit of the the article below:

When James Maslow first auditioned for the funny Nickelodeon show Big Time Rush back in 2007 when he was only 17 years old, he didn’t predict it would take off as quickly as it did. In fact, I didn’t either. I was a freshman in college by the time the show aired in 2009 (two years, four screen tests, and a couple pilots later) and when I caught wind of the new live-action television show, I was intrigued, as were millions of others—in fact, the official debut episode drew in more than 6.8 million viewers. The next thing I knew, Big Time Rush merchandise was everywhere, concerts were selling out left and right, and the band was playing in the middle of Times Square—a dream venue for every singer/songwriter… ever.

Not only did they have us play that concert in the rain, which made it feel like such an epic rock moment,” Maslow recalls when I ask him for his favorite BTR memory, “but they also had us broadcasted on every major screen in the area. It was our first show, and was a pretty cool way to kick off the band.

Although I might have just missed the Big Time Rush fandom phenomenon age bracket (had I only been a few years younger, I would have had posters of the group hanging on my bedroom walls), one thing was obvious: Maslow was special. Now 24 years old, with perfectly toned arms, covetable brown hair, and a dazzling, white-toothed smile, the singer/songwriter (and now movie actor) is adored by over 3 million Twitter fans and counting—a number that skyrocketed during his time on ABC’s hit dance competition show, Dancing with the Stars, earlier this year.

Picture this hypothetical situation and put yourself in it: you are a 24-year-old single guy who is an actor, singer and dancer, are extremely good looking, in terrific shape and live a block away from the beach in Venice, California. The vast majority of us would spend a ton of time partying and eating fattening foods at the top restaurants all over the globe. But not James Maslow.

I like to train six days a week,” he says. “I love to exercise and it’s not always lifting weights. I also love to box and like to play sports.” As a youngster, Maslow played a lot sports. But when he was 13, he attended a performing arts school that didn’t have any sports teams, so he decided to join a gym to keep himself in shape. But he didn’t take it that serious and make it a full lifestyle until he was 20.

By that time, Maslow was already cast in the role as James Diamond on the hit Nickelodeon series “Big Time Rush,” in which he and his three cast mates played a boy band. They did their own singing and eventually released albums and went on world tours.

“We filmed four seasons and the band became a hit, as well,” recalls Maslow. “We have three gold albums, even platinum in a few countries like Venezuela. And the band still tours; (this past spring) we were in South America.” No rest for the weary as Maslow immediately began rehearsing for ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” nine hours after his flight landed back in the United States. Maslow became a household name with his sexy dance routines with partner Peta Murgatroyd and his open shirt costumes during their routines, exposing a finely detailed six-pack.

Hombre: James Maslow – Last Man Standing

Posted by Angela on
July 30th, 2014

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.
