Corbin Bleu: Free Style Out TODAY!

Corbin Bleu and Sandra Echeverria share a goodbye at the stables in this still from their new movie, Free Style.

The 20-year-old actor caught up with Hollywood Chicago to chat about Free Style, New York being his home and working with his dad, David Rievers, once again. Check it:

On considering New York his home: “I still consider myself a New Yorker at heart. I come back all the time and I still have relatives there. Both my Mom and Dad grew up in New York, so even living in Los Angeles most of my life, I still grew up in an East Coast home. The biggest difference is, on the whole, New Yorkers aren’t afraid to get in your face (laughs). That’s what I love about home. My mother is not afraid to tell me off, in the best way possible.”

On the heartfelt scene in Free Style with his real father, David Rievers: “There were a couple of different ways we could have played it. This was a turning point for Cale. The whole time he’s been holding on to the fact that his father has left him. He was also thinking that it was his fault. So when he confronts his father we decided that was the point where he could let him go. It’s a huge turning point. It was strange experience playing the scene with my father. I had to pretend that I hadn’t seen him in years, when I actually see him every day.”

On learning how to ride a bike: “Once I knew I was going to ride, I thought ‘okay, I really need to learn how to do this.’ Luckily my manager rides bikes, he brought me to the track and I started learning, met a bunch of the other racers and I became obsessed. I have a bike now, I go to all the races still and I’ve become friends with a lot of top riders. So all of that came together. The rest of the film is a good love story, even though it’s a traditional story of a young guy pursuing what he loves doing, but there are a lot of different layers. It plays with lot of different themes.”

Free Style hits theaters TODAY (October 9) in selected cities. Check out the full article at
