J-14 recently chatted with Adam Hicks, who plays skateboarding star Luther in the new Disney XD show Zeke and Luther premiering June 15 at 8:30PM ET/PT! Read on to see what he had to say about the show, his crazy character Luther, and how many fans have invited him to their proms!
J-14: Did you do a lot of skateboarding before the show?
Adam: Actually, I had gone through a phase when I was younger when I wanted to become a professional skateboarder. I was in that phase for about six years, but by the time the audition came I was kind of over it. I was like, that's never going to happen. But then I went to the auditions and it snapped me right back into the old days!
J-14: So Hutch told us that your character Luther is the funny guy. Are you like that in real life?
Adam: I think everybody has a little bit of Luther in them. He is a 15-year-old, zany, outrageous kid and he lives in those odd moments, the kind of moments you don't need to be in. That's how I made up Luther, from looking at other people and my personal experiences.
J-14: Are you excited to be on the new Disney XD? Your show hasn't even premiered and you already have a ton of fans blogging about it!
Adam: Yeah, they have the old Even Stevens on Disney XD, and all types of cool things. I'm just waiting for my show to drop! Everyone's excited -- people are asking are me to prom!
J-14: Whoa! How many prom invites?
Adam: I've gotten like, three or four -- from strangers!
J-14: Did you say yes to any of them?
Adam: Usually I'm extra extra busy so...
J-14: What does that mean when you say that, are you really busy or are you just blowing them off?
Adam: Well, it can be different at times, but these last six months I have been sooo busy, it's like, every single day something, you know? But I keep working and I love it.
J-14: What do you usually look for in a girl?
Adam: They have to be nice and just know how to chill, relax, and not take things so seriously.
