Tyson Ritter ('Colby')
Tyson this is your film debut. Why this film?
Tyson Ritter: "I think the fates kind of intertwined. I got a call from my manager and something came across the desk. He's like, 'Hey, you've got to do this.' I was painting my lady's house and I was like, 'All right.' I grabbed the sides, went out the door and read. I guess I looked the frat part."
So this kind of movie is probably not the typical movie you'd go see if you were purchasing a ticket, right?
Tyson Ritter: "Yeah, no, I mean, everyone says the Playboy Mansion is enticing I guess. But I guess they even have the PG-13 world. It's crazy. I think it's awesome, though. I mean, they do Easter Egg hunts at the Playboy Mansion, why can't they do…?"
So how much did you get to hang out there?
Tyson Ritter: "I didn't have a single scene up there so I'll be going to the afterparty tonight. It's kind of been like this looming thing. Like, 'Did you get to go?' 'No, no, but I'm going tonight!'"
This is a bunch of females basically in this movie. Were there any guys at all that you got to hang out with at all?
Tyson Ritter: "There was a really bunch of cool extras and bit part guys that I really hung out with. And then Colin Hanks was there for a couple of days. It was really cool to sit and bullshit with him so it was cool."
Do you want to do more films? Are films in your future or is it back to music?
Tyson Ritter: "Yeah. I think as long as I've got time for it. I mean, I'm going to be out for two years on this next run so it goes away, you know what I mean? But I'll come back to it."
Okay, geek or Bunny, which would you normally pick?
Tyson Ritter: "Geek or Bunny? Oh, a geek with the potential to be a Bunny, yeah, right? Sort of a diamond in the rough, right?"
