James Maslow always knew he was destined for Hollywood. But now that he's made it big in the biz, is he ready to Elevate even higher? Well, he told Starpulse all about his early fame dreams, what it's like working on his hit show Big Time Rush and what career plans he's got in mind for the future.
James started off by explaining how he was first bit by the fame bug. "The closest I came was when I went to my first performing arts school in the eighth grade," he said. "I had so much fun. I never really got to hone my skills [so] as soon as I was surrounded by 1500 kids who loved performing, I was inspired."
And that inspiration took him further than he ever imagined! Now, James spends most of his waking hours in BTR mode. "We not only film and film single-camera, 12 to 20 hours a day, but obviously we record [music], and write a lot of that music, and then record. There's a lot of different jobs that go into BTR. It's non-stop."
But what about further down the road? "I've always wanted to do film," James gushed. "I think TV's an amazing start but film has always been the ultimate goal. I'm excited to play something more serious. I'd rather play fifth lead in a movie that's great than be the lead in something that wasn't good."
Well, maybe James won't be the fifth lead, but we know how he can be the fourth! Another Big Time Movie perhaps?
