about show's new addition
By Deanna Barnert Special to MSN TV
Kings" blows into Season 3 with a major regime change. King Brady has left
the island, and before King Boomer can follow, a storm washes a third king onto
the shores of Kinkow. Adam Hicks ("Zeke and
Luther," "Lemonade Mouth") joins the cast as King Boz, who turns out to be
Boomer and Brady's long-lost triplet brother and decides to stick around. MSN TV
hit the island to find out how the new addition will rock Kinkow when "Pair of
Kings" this season.
MSN TV: A storm blows "Pair of Kings" into new waters. How different
will the show be this season?
Doc Shaw (Boomer): Very different: new cast, new set. We've been working hard
and having fun. I think viewers will react in a positive way.
Geno Segers (Mason): We're all excited, because King Boz is an interesting
character. He has what we call "primate tendencies." He does a lot with his feet
that normal people can't do, like eat and peel bananas.
Doc Shaw: He also sleeps on a tree bed, as uncomfortable as it looks.
Wait, is Boz a monkey king?
Adam Hicks (Boz): He was raised by apes. He's humanized [as the season
progresses], but in his boiled moments, he'll still spaz out and do some ape
Doc Shaw: The premiere episodes are about teaching him how to interact with
humans and listen to what we call our conscience.
Geno Segers: Boomer also brings Boz up to speed in respect to what you have
to do as a brother. They call it the 10 bro-mandments.
What does Boomer think of Boz?
Adam Hicks: At first, Boomer's a little wavy about him, but now, the synergy
is there. They're brothers. Doc's a hilarious comedian. We just rock it. We're
friends in real life, which is always helpful!
Doc Shaw: The transition has been great, on and off set. We're slowly growing
together as a new family. You'll see King Boomer go through a lot. I don't think
you could fully make him mature or an adult -- ever! But he's definitely gotten
more mature, simply because he has a new brother and has to set a good example.
Now, the student is the teacher.
So is Boz the crazy one in this new pair?
Adam Hicks: They both are. They are destroying everything. Trust! On "Zeke
and Luther," Hutch Dano was the straight guy and I was the crazy person. That's
the formula of comedy, usually, but here, everyone's wacky. It's a different
formula and it works.
Kelsey Chow (Mikayla): Even Mikayla's crazy this season.
