OK!: We hear Gavin DeGraw is guest-starring on tonight’s episode. Was he cool?
James Maslow: So we actually did a scene together, but I never met him. You ask how that’s possible. It’s only a single camera show, so it’s like filming a movie where you can shoot one direction and the rest of it is crew. They had a stand-in read my lines. Then they have to turnaround, set camera and lights and it’s a whole ordeal. And by the time that happens, I came out thinking like, “Oh I get to meet him!” but he left like an hour previously. It’s kind of funny that the two guys who weren’t in the scene with him met him and the two of us who were never even got to meet the guy. The friends I know that are his friends say he’s a great guy, but I never met him so I couldn’t tell ya. But thanks for being on my show though dude, appreciate it.
OK!: James buys a snake in this episode? Discuss.
JM: Yeah, I decide to spend my money, our bonus in the episode on a snake. I’m not really afraid of animals and actually I dig snakes and it was cool at first, but after a week of having that thing like, wrapped around my throat and just hissing….The snake handler is like crocodile hunter, like the nicest guy, but he’s like bat s*** crazy. He’s like sitting there tapping it on the head and I’m like, “don’t do that!” I was pretty cool with it, but it was worse for the actors around me because they had to be in a scene with me. I’m like holding its head and it’s going, “ssssssss.” It scared the crap out of some people.
OK!: That’s terrifying!
JM: We set it on the floor one time and it just took off. I mean, it’s cool when it’s just chillin’ and when you get to pet it and it’s nice, but when it starts to move it’s because it wants warmth. That’s what it’s really seeking out most of the time. You feel like you’re in the wild, man.
