With a career that has spanned just over two decades now, there’s no denying that acting is more than likely akin to child’s play for Jason Ritter. Which should certainly serve him well for his latest role that sees him stepping into the shoes of, well a child! Premiering tonight on the Disney Channel, GRAVITY FALLS finds Ritter voicing the character of Dipper Pines, who along with twin sister Mabel are in for an unexpected adventure when they spend the summer with their great uncle in the mysterious town of… you guessed it… Gravity Falls. We caught up with Ritter late last week to find out what attracted him to the project, whether or not co-star Kristen Schaal is as funny as advertised, and of course what’s in store for PARENTHOOD fans when our favorite family drama returns this fall.

WonderCon 2012 provided so many rich opportunities to not only preview the hottest shows on television and the biggest movies coming to a theaters near you, it allowed fans a chance to mingle with a fantastic variety of talent associated with film and television. One special group that has begun to venture out into the conventions and which are talking about the art they create is music composers. Music is not just about records, CD’s, MP3’s, concerts, or the latest song on the radio anymore. Music is, in fact, prevalent in all aspects of entertainment these days. It is the life-blood of any visual medium ranging from film to television, from commercials to movie trailers. It is also an art form that has sparked growing attention and appreciation as fans are realizing that what we see is so much better with a bit of music bringing it to life. [Read more...]
Disney’s FRIENDS FOR CHANGE GAMES has found a fun way for kids to learn about going “green” and being aware of their impact on the world around them. In the games series, Disney’s hottest young actors and stars participate in the games to show how easy and fun it is to make some changes in our lives that help the planet and protect the environment.
What is the purpose of Friends for Change?
Tiffany: Friends for Change is a Disney initiative that started 2 years ago. This is our third year to do it. It’s trying to get the kids involved around the world in helping the environment, and knowing what it means to go green. There’s ideas online. There’s a website at ProjectGreen.com which invites kids to participate as a part of this initiative and they have ideas online on how to help the environment. So it’s games about recycling and washing your clothes in an environmentally friendly way. So I think it will draw their attention even more so than just the games themselves.
Brigit: I think the first step is getting the kids aware of the causes that are out there and then making it accessible and making it fun. I think that’s the great thing about the Friends for Change games is that, first of all, the kids can realize there are ways to make saving the environment fun; and then from there to know it’s something that they can do within their own life, and then can go to Disney.com Project Green and see the different ways that they can participate.

In the Disney series A.N.T. FARM, China Anne McClain plays a musical genius who must navigate high school with a bunch of other gifted youngsters as they pursue their passions.
What is A.N.T FARM about?
China: A.N.T. Farm is a show basically about high school and the A.N.T. program, and A.N.T. stands for Advanced Natural Talent. Everyone in the program is very gifted in whatever it is they do. I’m a musical prodigy. You know, mathematics and arts. So the characters are 11 and 12 and the high schoolers don’t want them there. And my character is China Sparks. She is very complicated. She doesn’t care about what the high schoolers think about her. She is just going to make the most of her high school experience. [Read more...]

In the Disney comedy series PAIR OF KINGS, Mitchel Musso and Doc Show play Brady and Boomer, twins who find out when they are 16 years old that they have inherited a remote island kingdom — over which they must rule and find a way to delicately, if not humorously, rule their subjects. [Read more...]
Mitchel Musso just can’t wait to be king. And lucky for him, he doesn’t have to. For after four years of playing second fiddle to Hannah Montana, 19-year old Mitchel Musso is about to have his moment. As one of two teen kings of a mysterious island in the new comedy adventure series PAIR OF KINGS, Musso joins fellow Disney alum Doc Shaw (THE SUITE LIFE ON DECK), in their very own series Disney Channel series premiering tonight at 9PM.
Did you ever expect HANNAH MONTANA to turn into the phenomenon that it did?
Mitchel Musso: I didn’t and I still don’t, it never hit me. Really! We were all just a big family over there. It was the easiest shoot I’ve ever done in my life and that went on for six years, which is a long time to put up with people that you’ve never met in your life. We had fun, we grew up on that show, I went to school there, my teachers were there and most of my childhood was spent there.
What is it that attracted you to another TV show versus, say, a movie career?
I love the live part of doing television. You have an audience every week. I’m so used to playing shows, doing my music, and it’s better for me to react off of large amounts of people. I need a crowd to do 100 percent, and in movies you don’t really get that, it’s very intimate, it’s a tough job.
