Rex Lee Dishes On ABC Family’s Young & Hungry And More – Check Out The Q&A!


ABC Family’s Q&A with Rex Lee
Young & Hungry

Moderator      How was your character, Elliot Park, originally described to you?

Rex      David Holden [Executive Producer and Series Writer] was on the phone with me and he explained a little bit of the back story for the character, which had to do with other members of his family, who we have not met in the series at all. He explained how my character grew up with all these brothers and what happened to them and how that influenced his style of moving into the realm of Josh Kaminski [played by Jonathan Sadowski]. My character, Elliot, likes to be in control. I’m not going to say he’s controlling; I’m not going to say he’s a control freak, but he likes to rule the roost.

Moderator      Was there anything that you added to him that wasn’t originally scripted for you?

Rex      I think any time that you’re called upon to perform a role, you bring things about yourself to the role that aren’t necessarily there in the writing. So I can’t say that I deliberately made this character like myself.

Sometimes when I go out in the world and people recognize me from work I’ve done, they’re always a little bit surprised that I look and sound like the characters I’ve played. I sort of have to say, “But I’m me and I look like me, and I don’t usually alter my voice to play characters, although maybe in the future I will.” But up until now, I’ve pretty much just used my voice, so I always look and sound like the characters I play. The characters end up being similar to me in a way that I might not have intended in the beginning.

Moderator      Could you describe the relationship between your character Elliot and Gabi [played by Emily Osment]?

Rex Their relationship is definitely evolving. The thing about Elliot is he is not a monster, he has a heart. Therefore, the fact that his perspective of Gabi is that she doesn’t always have it together, I think that he often has compassion for her. I certainly think that Elliot is a person who thinks that as long as you can take his guff, he’s going to give you his guff. Any time that she’s feeling good, he’s probably going to be razzing her a little bit.

Moderator      Will we see your character dating on Young & Hungry like we did with your character on Suburgatory?

Rex      Yes! I will admit that my character has not had a love interest in any of the episodes we’ve filmed so far, but I’m certainly hopeful that in the future Elliot will have a love interest. I’m really hopeful about that for sure.

Moderator      What’s it like working with Emily Osment?

Rex      It’s great! I might have been living under a rock because I had never seen an episode of Hannah Montana even though I’ve heard of the show, so I didn’t really know who Emily was. When they told me she was the lead of the show, I had to look her up and find pictures and figure out what work she’d done [laughs]. It turned out that I had seen part of a film she’d done called Dadnapped. She played the daughter of the mystery writer, so I had seen part of that.

As we got to working, I thought this young woman is someone I can learn a lot from. She’s just such a pro at such a young age, and I have to say that she really surprises me all the time. Sometimes I’ll be watching a scene that’s populated by other actors and I’ll think that actor really missed a joke there, and I’ll say to myself “how would I have delivered that line?” Every time I’m watching Emily at her work, she’s always doing and saying things in a way that’s completely surprising to me and is really delightful as a surprise. I never really worry about her, even though I’m constantly thinking “it’s really not how I would have delivered that line at all.” I’ll also think that she delivered it in a better way than I ever would. I just think she’s amazing and I have so much to learn!

Moderator      Are there any character traits that you share with Elliot?

Rex      I don’t like to admit this at all, because I think it’s a character flaw of mine, but I think to the extent that Elliot goes out into the world and has judgments about other people, I can relate to that. I’m not proud of it, but I can relate to that. I think that Elliot certainly has a desire for the world around him to be orderly and clean, everything right in its place, and I am like that. The hilarious thing as I’m looking around my place right now and if I just have order in things, I would be lost; I’m a slob that wishes everything around me was neat!

"High School Musical 2" DVD Premiere - Arrivals

ABC Family has set themselves up for new shows coming in 2014, one being a comedy produced by Ashley Tisdale.

Ashley Tisdale tweeted excitedly about her first produced pilot Young & Hungry, produced through her production company Blondie Girl Productions, being picked up by ABC Family, alongside the comedy Mystery Girls starring Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling. Both new hit comedies will be established in ABC Family’s comedy line-up with Baby Daddy and Melissa and Joey.

“Viewers are excited to see Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth back on television together again, and will fall in love with ‘Young & Hungry’ star Emily Osment in these comedies that bring us fun, new characters with which to laugh out loud,” said ABC Family’s Chief Creative Officer Kate Juergens

The cast of Young & Hungry include Emily Osment, Jonathan Sadowski, Kym Whitley, Rex Lee and Aimee Carrero. Annie Potts will also star as a recurring character.

In Young & Hungry, two worlds somehow collide when Josh (Sadowski), a young and wealthy tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Osment), a young food blogger, who is looking to be his personal chef. Gabi is desperate for the job and knows she must prove herself to him, but mostly to Josh’s aide (Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job instead of her. When Josh wishes Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a rather awkward position. With the of Josh’s housekeeper (Whitley) and best friend Sofia (Carrero), Gabi turns a hard situation into an opportunity for employment and, maybe, even love.

Production of Young & Hungry will begin early this year, set to premiere later in 2014.
