ETonline: Let’s start
with your abs. They are getting a lot of attention on the Internet thanks to
Lifetime’s very choice teaser.
James Maslow: Yes,
they definitely utilized that as a way to exploit it because it’s not the most
important part of the movie… Not to disappoint anybody, it’s not just an hour
and a half of nudity.
So Bart is a pretty
awful guy. Can you even name all the terrible things he does in this film?
It would be hard to, especially because the movie, in
particular, is not very specific as to whether he did or didn’t do a couple of
things. In Bart’s defense, it’s difficult to play a character and just say, ‘My
character’s a bad guy.’ That would be weird, because no bad guy ever thinks
he’s a bad guy. No evil person ever thinks what they’re doing is evil.
Ultimately, they think what they’re doing for the world, or the family, or
whatever the situation is, good. That's very much so for Bart. He was raised to
believe in ideology that was skewed and, in many ways, wrong or extremist. And
it takes him until the end of the entire series to really figure that out.
Ultimately, he realizes he’s not a bad guy, but just grew up with terrible
It sounds like he’s
really lost in all the ideology about what is right and what is wrong.
He’s absolutely lost. He felt like he had no parents to
raise him once he found out that his father and mother were brother and sister.
That was enough for him to disown his father figure, Chris. That’s why he turns
to his grandfather, Malcolm Foxworth, who died years past. So he’s basically
been raised by a journal filled with skewed ideology.
Funnily enough, Bart’s
one of the only characters that does not technically commit incest.
He’s so against incest and wrongdoings, ironically,
because he all these temper tantrums himself. But yes, he doesn’t sleep with
any family blood relatives. [Laughs]
…So Bart, that’s one thing you did well.
