Taylor Spreitler Talks 'Melissa And Joey'

Written by 04 August, 2014


Q: What has been your favorite episode to film?

Taylor Spreitler: Oh goodness, that’s a hard question, there have been so many! [Laughs].  I really loved our Christmas episode; it was fun to see us all play different versions of our characters for an entire episode.  Getting to be in costumes and having horrible southern accents was a lot of fun!

Q: Who has been your favorite guest star?

Taylor Spreitler: I love the whole story line with Kevin and Sterling because I have known them both for years.  We’ve been friends forever.  So, it was a lot of fun to work with them and hang out.  So they’ve definitely been two of my favorites.

Q: What is your best Melissa and Joey memory?

Taylor Spreitler: It’s hard to narrow it down between all of the amazing birthdays that I’ve had, but I think it might have been my high school graduation.  I graduated high school and I wasn’t going to be able to attend a real graduation, so my entire crew came together and they made me a cap and gown and Melissa gave me a commencement speech and it was a huge surprise. 

It was an episode where she snuck me into a Kings of Leon concert and they told me that I had to jump into the dumpster.  When I came out of the dumpster, there was a podium set up, a cake for me, and it was really special.  It was very nice that they cared so much to make sure that I had this very special moment, something that every kid went through that I wasn’t able to experience and they made it for me, which was awesome.

Q: Who is the biggest goofball on set?

Taylor Spreitler: All of us share that title pretty equally [laughs]. I’d probably say Melissa, because she is always the first one to do something; physical comedy is her thing.  She might be the biggest goofball because she’s always the first one to jump in to make someone laugh.

Q: If you could guest star in any other ABC Family show, which one would you want to star in?

Taylor Spreitler: Definitely PRETTY LITTLE LIARS because they wear the cutest clothes on the show [laughs].

Q: If you were stuck on an island with only one other Melissa and Joey cast member, who would you want it to be?

Taylor Spreitler: Let’s see…maybe Sterling because he’s from Texas and he would know more survival skills than the rest of them.  No offense to any of the rest of us, but we all grew up in the city [laughs].  So, I think I would have to pick Sterling because I feel like his Texas roots would really come in handy.

Q: What’s your favorite ABC Family show, besides MELISSA AND JOEY?

Taylor Spreitler: I love BABY DADDY, because I think its fun to watch a show that is similar to ours, plus I watch it every Wednesday since it comes on right after MELISSA AND JOEY.

Q: What do you enjoy doing off the set of MELISSA AND JOEY?

Taylor Spreitler: If I’m not working, I’m in my backyard in my pool.  I’m kind of a homebody [laughs]. I like to hang out at home with my dogs, listening to music, and reading in my backyard.

Q: What were you doing when you found out you were cast on MELISSA and JOEY?

Taylor Spreitler: I was driving to Burger King.  I had been at ABC Family and I tested for it on a Friday; it was my last audition and they told me that I wasn’t going to know anything until Monday.  So, I came back and I was trying to forget about it, and I was thinking, “I’m just going to go to Burger King, come back, relax for the weekend and then figure it out on Monday.”  When I was in the drive-thru at Burger King, I got the call and started screaming at the top of my lungs.  The people at Burger King probably thought I was crazy [laughs].

Q: What’s it like to be on set?

Taylor Spreitler: It’s so fun! We’ve all been working together for so long that we are a family now.  It’s one of those things that I don’t think in the five years we did this, that I was ever bummed that I had to go into work. I was always so excited that I got to work and hang out with my friends. I’m still friends with my cast and my crew. 

It was such a great environment plus you’re doing a comedy so whatever is going on, it’s hard to walk into that set and not be happy because we get to do funny things and we get to do what we love with people that we love.

Q: Is it nerve-wracking to film in front of a live studio audience?

Taylor Spreitler: It depends on what the episode is.  The first time we all did it, Nick had done a little theatre before, but I had never done a live audience before so it was very scary because I was not used to having so many people watch you while you’re working.  But after a while it got easier and it was just so much fun. 

There would be times we would have episodes that we knew were going to be a little more difficult to perform in front of the audience, and that would make us a little nervous. If I had tongue twisters that I had to say, I would always get really nervous, because there are so many people watching.

Q: Who are you closest with out of anyone on the ABC Family shows?

Taylor Spreitler: We have this little ABC Family community, where we all end up hanging out.  I’m really good friends with Melissa.  She’s the person that I’m closest to from our set and I’m really close with Greer, Kevin and Sterling. I’m also really good friends with Chelsea Kane from Baby Daddy.

Q: Do you have any teasers you can tell us about about the series finale of MELISSA AND JOEY?

Taylor Spreitler: Big things happen.  Zander and Lennox get into a little bit of a car accident and they end up having an epiphany, and Melissa and Joey get some even bigger news.

Q: Do you think Lennox is better with Zander or Marco?

Taylor Spreitler: I think Marco is fun and they are such a great couple, but I think her and Zander are meant to be and I think they’ve been through the tests numerous times and they’ve always come together. They’re definitely a strong couple.

Q: Do you hope to film anything else with the cast of MELISSA AND JOEY in the future?

Taylor Spreitler: I hope so! I love working with them and I think it would be fun to work with them on something else that’s not Melissa and Joey and see the dynamic there.  It would be interesting.

Q: What is it like to work with Melissa Joan Hart?

Taylor Spreitler: It’s great! It was so great coming in as a kid and not really knowing what you’re doing. It was very overwhelming but working with her, since she was someone who was a teenage girl going through it, was definitely very helpful to always have someone that I could ask questions and she was always there for me. 

Anyone who has ever worked with Melissa, or even met her, knows that she loves to tell stories.  She is an open book.  She will tell you her entire life story if you talk to her for more than five minutes.  She’s just very welcoming. She’s not a very secretive celebrity; she’s just very welcoming.

Q: If you could guest star on any ABC Family comedy show, which one would it be?

Taylor Spreitler: The new comedy series, KEVIN FROM WORK.  I watched the first episode yesterday and one of my best friends Jordan Hinson is on it, and it is so funny.  I had dinner with the entire cast two weeks ago.  That just seems like such a fun show to work on, so I would love to guest star on that.

Q: If you could’ve had anyone guest star on MELISSA AND JOEY, who would it have been?

Taylor Spreitler: We had so many good ones that it’s hard to think of someone who wasn’t on our show.  I grew up watching almost everyone that guest starred on our show, because it was a lot of ‘90s stars and then there were a lot of my friends.  A lot of our guest stars I knew beforehand.  I don’t really think that we missed out on anyone and we had some great guest stars over the years.

Q: Do you see yourself doing more comedy in the future?

Taylor Spreitler: I would love to! I love doing comedy.  I love the whole idea of sitcoms. A lot of people grew up watching it and it looks like it’s such a good time.  It’s nice to do something that makes people laugh.  My biggest thing is getting tweets from people who thanked me for all the laughs and how I helped them through hard times. It’s such a gratifying feeling.  I would definitely love to do more comedy.

Q: Do you have a favorite TV show?

Taylor Spreitler: I don’t really watch a lot of TV, but I’ve become obsessed with ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB and GAME OF THRONES. Those are the two shows that I watch.

Q: Who would you want to play on PRETTY LITTLE LIARS if you were a character on the show?

Taylor Spreitler: I want to be A; really throw everyone for a loop.  Could you imagine, we do a crossover, and A’s been Lennox this whole time?



Q&A: Kevin Conroy Talks 'Batman: Gotham Knights'

Written by 08 July, 2008

Kevin Conroy had studied for and starred on the stage, advanced his career through soap operas, and was featured in television series like "Dynasty" and "Tour of Duty." But he says he had no idea that stepping into a sound booth in 1991 to audition for his first cartoon voice-over role would forever cement his place in the annals of animation and help to extend the Batman legacy to untold legions of fans.

Conroy has been the voice of the Dark Knight and Bruce Wayne for 17 years, beginning with "Batman: The Animated Series" and continuing through 16 films, video games and animated series (covering more than 220 episodes). He reprises the role in "Batman Gotham Knight," the third film in the ongoing series of DC Universe animated original movies.

From his home in New York City, Conroy spoke at length about the film, his ongoing relationship with the character, and the surprising manner in which he first approached and procured the role of Batman.

Q: What are your impressions of the film?

Kevin Conroy: It's a really rich experience. The artwork in this film is so beautiful, so amazing. I love the adult-themed animated shows like "The Simpsons" and "South Park" and "King of the Hill." I love the appeal of their writing, the irony, the sense of humor. Those are great animated productions. But you forget just how rich animation artwork can be until you see a film like this. There's just no comparison. I've never seen anything like this in terms of diverse and rich animation in the industry - it's like getting six movies in one.

The story is very interesting, especially the way it weaves in and out of Bruce Wayne's history - like the flashback to him training in India, learning to endure pain. It's very well conceived story and I think it enhances a lot of the Batman mythology.

I don't think there's any question the fans will love it, because it's such a deep animation experience, and it gives such great background into a character they already love. It's a very positive piece.

Q: After three years away from the character, what were the challenges of donning the cape once again?

Kevin Conroy: Getting back into the Batman voice was not hard - after so many years, it's so familiar to me now that it's like putting on an old coat. As you live with a character over the years, you fill out the skin. You don't even realize you're doing it. Sometimes they ask during a recording session, "What sound would Batman make here?" or "What would he say here" and they trust me to do that. They know I've been living with him for so long, I know what he'd say, and how he'd react.

Q: Batman Gotham Knight has essentially 12 different looks at your characters - nine of Batman and three of Bruce Wayne, varying in design and age range. Were there any challenges to maintaining the consistency of your performance despite voicing to so many different image variations?

Kevin Conroy: In the past, we've always treated the shows like a radio play - we recorded the lines and then the animation took place. This time, the artwork came first, and that made the process interesting. Sometimes the artists put extra mouth flaps in, or they made the cadence different from the way I'd usually deliver a line. So we had to work within those parameters and try to time the acting to fill the space.

Interestingly, they originally they were going to cast another actor to do the younger Bruce Wayne, and Andrea (Romano) convinced them to let me take a stab at it. I had done the younger voice in a number of the "Batman: The Animated Series" flashbacks, so Andrea knew that I could do it. And once I got into the studio and gave them a sample, they were convinced. The challenge is making the distinctions - you have to make concessions for youth and give the character the sound of a younger man, while still believably being the same guy. 

Q: At its core, this film represents several different perspectives of Batman, providing many different layers to the character. Can you discuss that range of emotions the film explores, and to what depths you reach to capture those emotions?

Kevin Conroy: It's that delicate balance you get in voices. As an actor, it's still the same job - it's acting - except that you only have your voice, and you have to be a little more precise in finding the balance. You have to keep it very minimal and you don't want to be too cartoony, but at the same time you only have your voice to tell the story - so you have to juice it up a bit. Sometimes the hardest acting is in the non-dialogue aspects of the performance. As an example, there was one long scream when Batman is falling down a series of ladders into a pit. They recorded that over and over and over again, trying to figure out how to do it just right, and not overdue it. I had to give them lots of variations and I'm sure they picked the best one later. Overall, it was a little challenging with the different artistic styles and the different stories, but it was still Batman.

Q: The legions of Batman animation fans have hailed you as the definitive voice of the character. How did you originally settle on that particular voice?

Kevin Conroy: To tell the truth, after reading the original script, I really went to audition for the character voices - like Commissioner Gordon and Harvey Bullock. Like most actors, I really love to be challenged, and I thought they'd be more interesting and really push me. And then Bruce (Timm) and Andrea (Romano) said they wanted to hear me do Batman. 

The only exposure I'd had was the campy Adam West live-action series, and they said that wasn't what they wanted. So I put myself into a very dark place in my voice, and my voice got deeper and darker and huskier, and it came out very mysterious. I really just took a stab at what I thought the voice would be, and then I saw Bruce and Andrea and Paul (Dini) running around the booth, so I knew I either was very good or very bad. 

That's how it started -- just me in a sound booth, them on the other side of the glass describing the character, and then the voice just came out of my imagination. And it worked. So initially I was much more interested in doing the character voices, but luckily they talked me into Batman.



Q: Do you require a certain mindset to approach the voice of Batman?

Kevin Conroy: There's an emotional place I go to - Bruce (Timm) says he see it in me in the booth. It's much more a psychology than just producing the sound. Batman is very complex. The Bruce Wayne voice is the real put-on. This is a guy who saw his parents murdered in front of him, and nobody would be normal and together after that. He feels like a freak inside. So to do the voice, you have to take on all that drama.

That's why everyone relates to Batman - because everyone feels like a freak inside. Everyone has ghosts that they don't want to show anyone else. All of us feel like we have that inside us. For me, that's one of the most interesting aspects of the character - that a super hero would ultimately be based on that inner-freak that we all feel that we have.

Q: In your mind, what's special about playing Batman?

Kevin Conroy: I think what I didn't anticipate about voicing Batman was the fact that I was playing an icon - I just didn't take into account how much Batman meant to so many people. Coming from a very conservative background, and not having extensive exposure to comic books and the character, it just never occurred to me. So in the beginning, I only thought of it as an acting job.

Q: And now … you're an icon in the Batman universe?

Kevin Conroy: I'm always flattered that people actually know who the voices are. It seems to me such an anonymous job. But periodically, somebody recognizes me - it happened in a furniture store recently. To me, that's truly amazing - first that someone knows who does the voice, and it's even more amazing that someone would know the face of the voice.

I think a lot of the reason that I'm so linked to Batman is because I've been doing it for so long. Before "Batman: The Animated Series," there really hadn't been a voice aside from Adam West. People knew Batman from the campy live action series, and the fans knew the Dark Knight comic books, but there hadn't been a voice associated with the character, and certainly not a dramatic voice. 

I think I just lucked out because I was the one who started with it, and people grew up with that voice.

 

  







Your Guide To Building The Perfect Discount TV Bundle

Written by

When most people discuss the cost of cable television, the conversation focuses on a comparison between traditional cable and satellite TV options vs the newer virtual cable television alternatives. The so-called "skinny" cable services have struggled to stay skinny, because the major media companies have increasingly insisted on bundling all of their networks into one take-it-or-leave it package. So these new services are being forced to take it all - local broadcast networks, scores of minor and little-watched niche networks as well as a complete suite of sports networks. And since "favored nation" clauses in these deals ensures no service can get a discount on any of the networks, the result has been an increasingly large and expensive cable alternative.

But this is 2020 and a lot of people are out of work or dealing with other financial challenges. And they still want some sort of television subscription that includes some live networks as well as next-day on-demand options. It's possible to do that on a budget, with a couple of caveats. First of all, this only works if you're not a big sports fan and are not expecting to be able to watch every major cable network live. In most cases, you're also going to have to make alternative plans for your local television stations, which is relatively easy with a decent television antenna. Thanks to the channel bundling, it's also almost impossible to see the news channels CNN. Fox & MSNBC on a budget. But there are several places to watch highlights of your favorite cable television programs and both ABC and CBS offer 24/7 news channels that are available for free.

I WANT A BUNCH OF LIVE ENTERTAINMENT NETWORKS AND I DON'T WANT TO SPEND MORE THAN $20 A MONTH
Editor's Choice: Philo ($20 per month)

Philo bills itself as an "entertainment-only" service and it delivers on that promise. You get 60 live channels for $20 per month and they offer a pretty wide range of familiar names - everything from Hallmark and AMC to Food and MTV. All of the Discovery-owned networks, all the Viacom channels, all the Hallmark nets as well as the AMC Networks. Along with lots of smaller niche networks like AXSTV and INSP. The downside is that because Philo won't carry anything but entertainment networks, they can't get access to entertainment networks owned by the big media companies that also own sports networks and local affiliates. So you won't find any of the networks from NBCU (Syfy, Bravo, USA, MSNBC), Turner (TNT, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network) and Disney (Freeform, Disney, NatGeo). That's an issue if you specifically want one of those networks live. But if you just want a number of familiar networks, Philo is a great place to start. Philo also offers an unlimited DVR, which is another upside. If there is a downside, it's that you can't use your Philo subscription to authenticate TV Everywhere apps.

Runner-up Choice: Frndly ($5.99 a month)
This newer service offers 15 channels. But if you mostly just want the Hallmark networks, this is a solid choice. You get all three Hallmark Networks, along with some weather (Weather Channel), outdoor sports (Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel & World Fishing Network), along with the Game Show Network, QVC and some other smaller networks. 

I WOULD LIKE SOMETHING A BIT CLOSER TO TRADITIONAL CABLE, BUT I ONLY WANT TO SPEND $30 A MONTH
Editor's Choice: Sling Blue or Sling Orange ($30 a month)
Sling has a really screwy set of programming tiers and it all gets down to its initial deal with Disney. Disney demanded restrictions on things like the number of concurrent streams (Disney wanted just one) as well as what programming subscribers could record. Those restrictions were much more customer-unfriendly than the terms set by the other major media companies, so Sling's solution was to create two separate but not-so-equal programming packages. 

Sling Orange includes the Disney-owned channels such as Disney, Freeform and the various ESPN nets. Along with a number of other networks. Among other things, you can only have one person streaming at a time with this package. Sling Blue contains a bunch of NBCU networks, but omits the Disney-owned channels. With Sling Blue, you can have three concurrent streams. And there are some additional networks that are included as part of both packages.

Both packages include A&E, AMC, AXSTV, BBC America, Bloomberg, Cartoon Network, Cheddar, CNN, Comedy Central, Comet, EPIX Drive-In, Food, HGTV, History, IFC, ID, Lifetime, Local Now, Newsy, TBS, TNT, Travel Channel and Vice. Sling Orange also includes Disney Channel, ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, Freeform, Motor Trend and Stadium. Sling Blue doesn't include any of those networks, but it does include Bravo, Discovery, E!, the local Fox affiliate in some markets, Fox News Channel, FS1, FX, HLN, MSNBC, National Geographic, NBC Sports in some markets, the local NBC affiliate in some markets, Syfy, TLC, TruTV & USA. 

So the final count is 32 networks on Sling Orange and 45 networks on Sling Blue. Either package runs $30 per month. The biggest disadvantage is that Sling only includes ten hours of free DVR space, otherwise an unlimited DVR costs $5 per month.

Runner-up choice: Obviously, a lot of this decision is driven by whether or not you have any "must-have" networks. If you don't, it's worth suggesting that for about the same money - $32 a month - you could subscribe to Philo as well as Hulu and CBS All-Access. The Hulu subscription not only gets you the Hulu originals but next-day viewing on just about all the shows you can't get on Philo. CBS All-Access gets you all of that services originals, plus next-day viewing of CBS programs as well as the local CBS affiliate feed in nearly all of the U.S. markets. Adding the new Peacock service would up the total to either $35 or $37 per month, depending on whether you subscribed before the launch (this is the pro-rated amount for an annual subscription). That would add more next-day viewing of NBCU network programming, along with some originals, sports and news coverage. As well as other on-demand titles not available elsewhere, such as "The Office" and "Everybody Loves Raymond." CBS All-Access also includes streams for CBS Sports and the 24/7 news network CBSN. And honestly, at this point you've got about all the new television you could ever watch. Unless you're a sports fan.

And if you're a fan of The CW, it's worth noting that the free CW app offers next-day viewing for nearly all of their programming. 

I WANT A TRADITIONAL CABLE TV EXPERIENCE, BUT I WANT TO PAY AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE

Editor's Choice: Hulu Live TV ($54.99 a month)
Even after a recent rate hike, Hulu Live TV is both substantially cheaper than a traditional cable or satellite TV subscription as well as rival YouTube TV ($64.99 a month). And as a bonus, subscribers to Hulu Live TV also get all the features of the traditional Hulu subscription, which saves $5.99 a month. It takes a bit of getting used to Hulu Live TV's distinctive interface and to be honest even after subscribing for more than a year, I'm not sure that I'd describe it as "intuitive." But you get used to it and as someone who has tried out all of these services, Hulu Live TV is the best deal financially and the best choice overall as a virtual replacement for a traditional cable or satellite TV subscription.

I WANT A TRADITIONAL CABLE TV EXPERIENCE, BUT I REALLY LIKE SPORTS

Editor's Choice: Fubo TV ($54.99)

If you're a sports fan, there is no better choice than Fubo TV. This service began as a sports-centric streamer and over the past several years it has been forced to expand its non-sports offerings to get some of the bigger sports networks. But now it offers the best of both worlds-a solid lineup of traditional networks as well as a huge selection of major and minor sports networks. It's in the middle of some programming turmoil right now, since it recently lost the carriage rights to all of the Turner Networks. But on the upside, it is adding a wide variety of Disney-owned networks in early August. Sports viewing-like any other programming niche-is really dependent on personal taste. If you love Big Ten Football, then you're going to subscribe to the vMVPD that carries the Big Ten Network. But if you just love sports of all kinds, then Fubo TV by far has the best selection of sports programming on the market.
