The guys star in the new YouTube Red movie Alexander IRL, which is about two brothers who are left home alone and must come together to achieve their goals.
Alexander (Rivera) decides to throw a legendary house party to win friends and woo his crush, while his brother EJ (Nathan Kress) wants to use the party to impress his venture capitalist boss by building a mobile app to get kids unglued from their phones.
We caught up with Brent and Marcus to talk about the film and “unplugging” from social media every once in a while.
“Yes, I actually try and do that,” Brent told us. “I obviously have to, and want to, keep my followers involved in what I do in my life, but at the same time I do take breaks, I do have time for myself. I recently just went to San Francisco with six of my friends and we just kind of took three days and just did whatever in San Francisco which was pretty fun. So I definitely try and get away from my phone and live inside “in real life.” [Laughing] IRL baby! Wooo!
Marcus told JJJ, “Yeah taking time to unplug is super important and I think I make sure to do that every time I get home. I just take a few moments to chill or take a nap. Sleep is actually my hobby, it’s so fun to sleep. So I definitely take time to hang out with my dog, chill with my friends, talk to my family members sometimes [Laughing]. So yeah, taking time to unplug is something that’s important to me.”
Alexander IRL premieres on Wednesday, January 11 on YouTube Red!
