Check out the full interview of Jake Short with sound at tommy2.net.
Tommy2: Hey, how’s it going – it’s Tommy2 and this morning we’re being joined by Jake Short of Disney Channel’s A.N.T. Farm. So what’s up?
Jake Short: Uh, nothing much, here at the set having fun.
Tommy2: Sounds like fun there. Now to start off I wanted to say Congratulations on your 2012 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Award for Favorite TV Actor.
Jake Short: Thank you very much, it’s very exciting.
Tommy2: So what did you do with your orange blimp?
Jake Short: A little bit. I was in a big category against a lot of other stars that have been in the business a long time and it’s really and honor to be where I am.
Tommy2: What did you do with your Orange Blimp?
Jake Short: I think we’re going to get… I actually haven’t gotten it yet, cause they have to get them made and stuff like that cause there a special material. But, once I get it, I’ll probably get a frame for it or something and put it up in the living room. It’s sort of a cool thing.
Tommy2: Now, aside from the big win, what was your favorite part of the Kids Choice Awards this year?
Jake Short: I would say the energy and the orange carpet. I mean there were fans lined up by the sides of it and it was really cool and they were all really super excited. It was awesome.
Tommy2: Yeah, this was quite a big one too with even more security than ever, especially with the First Lady, Michelle Obama attending.
Jake Short: Yeah, it was pretty crazy. It was amazing.
Tommy2: It hasn’t even been one year since A.N.T. Farm premiered on Disney Channel, what are thoughts on far it has come so far?
Jake Short: It’s been so great, and I’m so happy to be on the show, and Disney’s been awesome with us. I think it’s doing really well for the first year. It’s getting really good ratings and the kids seem to like it, so I’m happy.
Tommy2: And lets talk about your character Fletcher. What similarities do you share with him?
Jake Short: Well I would say he’s very quirky and animated. I would say I have his qualities. He’s very lovestruck, but I wouldn’t… I’m not really lovestruck. He’s different in sort of a good way. I mean, he’s his own person, so I’m a little bit like Fletcher. I don’t have his eleven-year-old qualities, but I would say, yeah we could probably be similar to the same person.
Tommy2: And one of the magic formula’s with that show is the cast. How would you describe the cast, like what do you enjoy the most about them?
Jake Short: I really like the energy on set and everyone just treats everyone like family and everyone is happy. I know it’s hard on set sometimes, everyone’s tired, but usually we’re all in a good mood and we’re having a good time.
Tommy2: Now right now you’re working on season two that should be airing around June. What type of things can we look forward to in the future?
Jake Short: Lots of funny episodes, and lots of stunts. The writers have really done a good job with the second season. Cool new scripts and I think everyone’s gonna like it.
Tommy2: And for fans not caught up, in addition to Disney Channel you can purchase A.N.T. Farm Season 1 episodes at iTunes and it’s available via streaming now on Netflix. Out of the first season, what episode is your favorite?
Jake Short: First season… probably my favorite episode was 19, I believe. I’m not sure, but it was really fun. It was the Christmas episode and I got pie’d in the face, which was awesome.
Tommy2: In addition to A.N.T. Farm, you get to do a lot of other great things with Disney Channel. What are some of the fun memories you’ve had over the last year?
Jake Short: Just the stunts and sort of growing closer and figuring out everyones personalities and getting to know them better.
