So, there are a few things we know for sure about Kevin on How to Rock. He's amazing at playing the drums, he's great at cracking jokes, he can wolf down just about any food, and, well, he's not exactly a hit with the ladies. But it turns out, he's got a twin to share in all his crush-mishaps and grub quests. And he goes by the name of Chris O'Neal! In an interview with Clevver TV, Chris chatted about all the ways he and Kevin are similar, and food was the first thing that came to mind...
"All he does is eat," he explained. "And it's so fun, because playing the character, I get to just eat food. All different kinds of food. And I love eating anyway. I'm the eater in real life, and I'm the eater in the show. So hey, it works out both ways." Yep, you definitely can't be a picky eater and play the part of Kevin. That's for sure.
Food aside, Chris has a few other qualities in common with Kevin! "We both play the drums," he said. "I've been playing the drums for about 5 years. So then when they said they needed a drummer, I was like 'I got this.' And I've always loved to make jokes and be funny, so the fact that Kevin is funny, I'm like, 'Okay, that's two.' Then, Kevin's not good with girls, and neither am I. And I never have been, I'll admit it! He's always flirting with every girl...never really gets the girl, but he'll flirt. He's not afraid to. But at the end of the day, he doesn't get 'em. That's kinda like me."
With all these similarities, Chris' gig as Kevin might be an easier acting job than we thought! All he's gotta do is show up to set and, well, be himself!
