Tommy2: What’s up, it’s Tommy2 and today we’re being joined by Dylan Riley Snyder of Disney XD’s Kickin’ It. So how are you doing this morning?
Dylan Riley Snyder: I’m doing great. How are you doing?
Tommy2: I’m doing well. You got any big plans for the day?
Dylan Riley Snyder: Just today I am filming what is our last episode of Kickin’ It for season 2.
Tommy2: Wow, so that’s going to be a big one. Is that going to be an emotional event for you?
Dylan Riley Snyder: I think it will. It was for the first season, it’s always sad seeing something you do every day for a long period of time go, but hopefully we’ll be able to come back.
Tommy2: Of course! With the ratings you’v been putting up, I’m sure you’ll be back. But for today it’s going to be like the last day of summer camp right?
Dylan Riley Snyder: Exactly, looking forward to the new school year.
Tommy2: It’s been just over a year ago, we spoke and Kickin’ It had premiered and you’re in Season 2. It’s been a really busy year for you hasn’t it?
Dylan Riley Snyder: It really has. We’ve been doing the shows, and press, and different premieres and it’s been a ride since we last spoke, but it’s been a good one. I’ve enjoyed it.
Tommy2: In what ways do you think Kickin’ It has changed from Season 1 to Season 2?
Dylan Riley Snyder: I think that Kickin’ It has changed that the characters have been growing, we’ve gone up belts, we’ve gotten better at karate, we’ve gotten deeper into who we are as our characters. And I think that as time goes on and the shows are able to develop those characters it just makes it better. Makes it more detailed and into it, it’s like a soap opera. It’s pretty amazing, just the way that everybody’s been able to just keep going and we know our characters so well. It’s a great feeling… but we’ve definitely grown as actors and as characters.
Tommy2: Now when you first started on the show, you mentioned that you had all gone through a Karate Bootcamp, have you had any more training since then?
Dylan Riley Snyder: On the spot training. Like when we need to learn a fight we’ll go in early one morning and train a little bit and learn what we need to know and then we’ll be practicing it throughout the week.
Tommy2: And looking back through the two seasons that you’ve taped, are there any episodes that stand out?
Dylan Riley Snyder: My favorite episode, well one of them that really stands out is our 70′s episode and that episode was just so wild and crazy. I played David Bowie and I was in spandex and had a wig. Oh, just insane. I was on six inch platforms… platform boots and I was as tall as our executive producer by then so, that was an amazing episode. It was one that you could just go wild on and everything was okay. But we definitely had some crazy episodes since then. We did a bunch of sport episodes at the beginning of this season and those were wild cause we had to learn how to play those sports. So we learned how to play football, wee learned how to play basketball and yeah… that was interesting cause we had to learn in three days and nobody actually knew.
Tommy2: You just learned how to fake it really well right?
Dylan Riley Snyder: Exactly! Well we actually did how to learn how to play cause we set up little basketball courts and a football field in our studio to use.
Tommy2: Now earlier you mentioned the costume that you were wearing in the 70′s episode. It’s like, that’s the one thing that I really get a kick out of with your character is that it seems like, whatever you think Milton would never do, he ends up doing. Like for instance you were talking about the sports, in “My Left Foot,” you were like the star of the football team.
Dylan Riley Snyder: Exactly! Yeah, I just don’t even have expectations now cause you don’t know what’s coming up… literally. I can be reading a script and you all of a sudden Milton’s in spandex or he’s playing a doctor or he’s Chef Ramsey. It’s just anything and I’m just okay, lets do it and I’m ready for it.
