‘Hit The Floor’s Rob Riley Gives Vixen a Tour of Brooklyn
How are you and McKinley?
In real life? That’s my man 50 grand. We’ve been tight since the pilot and I could say that and he’d say the same thing and that’s pretty awesome.
So the beef that you guys have, that’s just pure acting?
It’s all acting. Any animosity that you see on our show between all characters is all acting, we literally really all get along luckily, and like each other tremendously. I’ve been photographing behind the scenes all season. I have 8500 pictures from whether we were on set or hanging out outside of set, etc. It’s literally what we do.
Is this like the closest cast you’ve ever been with?
Yeah, maybe because it’s been so long, it is going on two years. We got together April 2012 we started shooting what was then called Bounce. 90% of the original cast and crew that started is still here. It’s really special. We have a really strong family from the top down. It’s awesome to be apart of it, I’m sad work is over until next year. We all get together and watch the show every Monday. No one asks us to do it but we all get together and watch it on Mondays because it was like our good luck charm last season.
With Logan’s character Jelena, how is it to be buddy-buddy but when the director yells “action,” you just look at her as if you hate her?
Ain’t most of relationships like that? Don’t you sometimes hate the person you’re with? [laughs] But it’s not hard because she’s such a great actress. It’s just easy whether we’re going something on an intimate season or we can’t stand each other in the hallway. I got lucky, she’s easy on the eyes so that helps. But she’s a tremendous actress and person. I often say Jelena and Logan could never be friends. And I would never date Jelena.
If you had to pick one talent and lost the rest of your talents, which one would you choose?
Right now, because I don’t need anyone to do it… with regards to acting, there’s a lot of people involved that go into every production. So for that reason I would do photography because I can do it by myself. I don’t need anyone else to do it. I literally get to create art just like that.
