Gaelan Connell: Nobody Knows I'm Cool Yet

Gaelan Connell: Nobody Knows I'm Cool Yet

Bandslam star Gaelan Connell gets silly with‘s famous coasters recently in New York City.

JJJ had the chance to chat with the self-proclaimed dork and leading man of Bandslam. Check out what the 20-year-old actor had to say:

JJJ: Have you been recognized on the streets yet?
Gaelan Connell: I have not. One of the coolest things that happened was we left this screening in New York – I went to see [costar] Ryan Donahue – and this girl came up to the two of us afterward and was, like, “Nobody knows it yet, but you guys are so cool!” And I was, like, aww! That’s awesome. “But nobody knows it yet!”

JJJ: Did you play Rock Band and Guitar Hero before you got Bandslam?
GC: Yes, but this definitely helped because they had all these free things – merchandiiiise! Lisa [Kudrow] and I actually played a lot ’cause there’s a scene in the movie where we’re supposed to play but you totally put a picture of us playing it on your blog! Hopefully it’ll be in the deleted scenes.

I think it was because we were too good at it. Lisa and I practiced and we got to Expert. And she’s really competitive – she’d block the screen with the guitar and stuff – like, Mom! And then when we had to shoot it, the TV was off and all the crew guys were getting pissed, like, “Get it right!” and we were, like, “No, we’ve done it!” and nobody believes us. I’m adamant – Lisa and I were really good at it.

Stay tuned for more of our exclusive interview with Gaelan and go see Bandslam — out in theaters TODAY!
