kids articles

Sindy: Do people treat you differently at school now that you're beginning to make a name for yourself as an actor?
Brett Kelly: Not really. My friends don't at all. I just started high school this year so everyone knows me as "the kid from Bad Santa" but as they get to know me, they get over that.

Sindy: Who is the coolest person you've worked with so far?
Brett Kelly: Billy Bob Thornton. When we were filming Bad Santa he was really cool. He took us behind the scenes at SeaWorld where we could pet the dolphins and feed some of the animals. He was just really nice and always included us in whatever he was doing.

Sindy: Who would you really like to work with in the future?
Brett Kelly: Adam Sandler. He's so funny and I love his movies.

Sindy: What is your favorite movie?
Brett Kelly: Anything with Chris Farley, Tommy Boy, The Replacements, Big Daddy.

Sindy: Favorite TV show?
Brett Kelly: Entourage, The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Office - Steve Carell is great.

Sindy: Favorite band?
Brett Kelly: I'm into classic rock - Pink Floyd, AC/DC, The Who... that kind of stuff.

Sindy: Fave sport star?
Brett Kelly: Marcus Naslund, Roberto Luongo... really any Canuck.

Sindy: What advice would you give to young people who want to get into acting?
Brett Kelly: Just be yourself. Don't try to be too flamboyant. Don't try to be too "on". Just be yourself and you might just get the part. You never know what they're looking for.

Sindy: Cool. Thanks so much for talking to us.
Brett Kelly: No problem. Thank you.
