Interviews with Melissa Joan Hart & Joey Lawrence from Melissa & Joey
In every episode, pretty much, Joey and I are always dating. But I think each time they realize that they have a relationship already in place sense and they can tread there. We just try to make it lighthearted and funny and let people kind of tune in and escape for a half hour and kick back and laugh. Hopefully if we keep doing our job, people will keep tuning in. We sort of set out to make something that obviously is for the adults.
On what interested in her about playing the character of Mel Melissa: I got to basically help the writers develop the character.
I told them exactly what I wanted to play. I wanted to be able to be silly and wacky. With Jamie and I—my mother and I produced the show and when we cast Joey in that role and then Joey and I were cast together and came on board we all just realized it was a good chemistry all around that we wanted to keep it going. So we got a chance to do the show. So really, with us kind of creating the show, in a sense, with ABC Family, wecame with the idea that they wanted a show about a manny and the writers came in and sat with Joey and I, each separately and we each got to play what character we wanted to be.
On what made him want to take on the role of Joe Longo Joey: Well it was a character that I sort of came up with. This is sort of a guy that I wanted to play on TV, in the half hour comedy world anyway. I think he can be brutally honest at times, but I sort of loved that about him. Everything you wear is incredible. On how much she sees of herself in Mel Melissa: I think that Mel is an exaggerated version of lots of little parts of my personality.
I love to have a good time. I always call myself an event girl. I like going and making the most of something. I like to have things scheduled out, but I also like to get really into things. I know my family always calls me scattered brain and silly and that I have a big heart, and stuff like that.
I think that a lot of that is sort of similar in Mel. We both love to cook. I think as an actor you always try to bring as much personal experience to the role. We try to make it work. Can we rearrange this and this? The great thing about doing the audience show—and Danny DeVito just wrote about this in … Magazine the other day. He said he came to our set to visit his daughter and he was very nostalgic about his Taxi days of having a live audience show because it is kind of magical.
You have a script set in stone Friday morning.
You have a script and Thursday night I will memorize the crap out of that script. Then we get to do it in front of a live audience but the second you do it, the writers are all side of the stage talking and whispering and the network will come in once in a while with their notes and we change it.
We change it right there and then. So we have to keep our brains locked down but also leave space for these little alterations they bring in, constantly. We call them alts, they bring in their alts. You may have your favorite picked out in your head which one you want it to be. For example, there was an episode that already aired in the fall that I did a spit take and in the preview—ABC Family ran the preview where I did spit take.
They just did it where I just kind of choked on my wine. There may be a little sexual tension there but I think that they both try to deny that and fight that.
I think that that sort of underlying sexual tension is sort of what keeps the show going. On keeping her composure and not laughing all the time while filming Melissa: So you get used to hearing it. So we are in this conversation. We are standing in the living room talking about whether or not Lennox can have a fake ID to go to a concert. So we leave breaks for the audience.
But we do have a lot of bloopers. In an upcoming episode, Joe speaks Japanese. How much did he know and have to learn? Well I knew none but I had to learn a lot — in about four days.
I would love to have him on. Then, of course, some really big names would be great to come on if we could get some good ratings and prove ourselves as a little show that could.
I would absolutely love to have Bill Murray on the show. On having his brothers guest star Joey: It was something that we wanted to do, that I purposely wanted to do. You gotta have your brothers on. So I had a lot of that when I was doing Clarissa. I was down in Orlando. Where does he go? Is his school going to suffer? I was a great student. I was very involved with all of my studies and once I started doing Clarissa that just went down the toilet.Melissa Joan Hart & Joey Lawrence On Snogging & Cougars
