TL;DR ‘cause he’s that dang good. And totes deserves this. Now watch.
I want to tell you a story about a boy from Texas. See, this boy has a dream to make it in Hollywood. Now, you might be thinking so what? There’re lots of wannabes waiting tables in L.A. and you’d be right. Not everybody is cut out to be a big time actor. But this guy is. Reece Everett Ryan is way talented and deserves the opprotunity to show everyone what he can do. If you’re into the indie scene, you might’ve seen his turn as Young Chris is DisAssociationVille or Kyle Harris in The Sphere or one of his many other roles he’s racked up in a few short years and already know this. But for those who don’t, all you need do is check out the Growing Up Viral video on YouTube.
If you’re still reading, I’m guessing you need more than one paragraph before you accept the inevitable and start telling every person you’ve ever met that they need to check this clip out. Okay, fine. Let’s start with the premise, eh? Growing Up Viral is about an average, everyday teenage boy who finds himself internet famous when an embarrassing clip involving him, his grandma and puckered lips breaks the web (relax, y’all, it’s totes fam friendly). From there, comedy hijacks arise as the awkward lad (a role Reece excels at) is pushed into the limelight. Cast as his pwning grandma is Gloria Loring. Yes, that Gloria Loring. For those who don’t know, she’s an accomplished actress and singer with credits to her name such as Days of Our Lives’ Liz Chandler and Renedage’s Melissa Dixon and let’s not foget she sang The Facts of Life theme song. The showrunner,writer and creator, Nicolas Grava has been seen in The Mentalist and Gone Missing amoung other projects and, based on that short scene you know you want to see again and again, he’s a dang good writer, too. And as y’all know, I know a thing or two about writing.
Bottom line, it’s funny. With Reece, Gloria and Nicolas combining their repective talents, we’re guaranteed one of the best comedies to ever grave our televisions. Reece and Gloria have great chemistry as they easily play off each other to deliver picture perfect performances. And speaking of Ms. Loring, she’s a comedy genius; her timing and delivery is spot on and will have you howling with laughter.
So go, make this thing a thing. Now, please.
Ugh. Still not convinced? I don’t see how that’s possible. Do you not understand the awesomess that Growing Up Viral is going to be as soon as Disney XD picks it up? C’mon, people. Stop messing with me. Instead, check out Reece’s demo reel for more evidence he’d be perfect on your TV screen every week. No, really, don’t take my word for it.
Hah. Reece’s Pieces. Isn’t that just an adorable name for his reel? And for reals, can you really say no to this face? Just look at that pout. G’head, you know you just wanna go awww.
Now go WATCH the clip, click that there LIKE button, COMMENT on how much you abs adore it and SHARE the ever-loving heck outta it so Disney XD picks this series up and that boy from Texas takes a huge step towards achieving his dream.
