CS4U had the chance to chat withJonny GrayandJake Goodmanall thingsMax & Shred.Take a read at our Q&A below!

CS4U: Your new series Max and Shred is officially out on Nickelodeon! For people who havent watched it yet, can you tell our readers a little bit about the show?

Jake: The show is a fresh comedy between Max Asher and Alvin Ackerman who are complete opposites. Max is a super cool, chill snowboarder and is very daring, and Alvin is very cautious and very smart. Max & Shredshows how they mix and even though theyre so different, they can become best bros.

CS4U: Jonny, since your character is a professional snowboarder, did you have any prior knowledge of snowboarding before taking on the role?

Johnny: “Yes, I actually snowboard very well! Ive been snowboarding since I was about 7 or 8, or 6 I cant remember clearly, but its been for a few years now :P. Im a big park guy so I do a lot of jumps and the rails so, I know the snowboarding terms, I know the slang.”

CS4U: Jake, since your character is more into science and technology, are you anything like your character?

Jake: “I usually say Alvin is a heightened version of me. I enjoy learning, Im fascinated by things around me and how stuff works, but in every script theres always that one word that I ask my mom how to pronounce and what it means because Alvin just knows all these words and terms that I have not heard of at all! Hes kind of like me but hes taken to another level.”

CS4U: Do you guys have any favorite memories from being on Max and Shred so far?

Jake:”I have so many favorite memories from being on set, I cant really think of one! Some include when were on breaks and we just chill with the cast and get some down time. I guess this doesnt really count as ‘on set,’ but Jonny lives very far away from where we film, so sometimes he stays at my house for the night. I love jamming with him, playing video games with him, and just chilling out with him! Jonny and I are very close.”

CS4U: Is there anything you can share with us that will be happening in upcoming episodes?

Jake: “Alvin and Max try to sneak into a party. We pretend were German scientists, which is pretty funny because obviously Alvin and Max dont know how to do a German accent. Another thing I can say is theres one where, obviously Max snowboards and has a bunch of sponsors, and Alvin gets jealous so he tries to get a sponsor of his own, and let me just say this, it does not go well!”

Jonny: “Also, one coming up in a little while is where we get snowed in to our house. We have a bad storm and theres a talent show- the Ackerman family talent show. Its the Ackerman familys social variety hour; and that is quite the event, a lot of things happen, its very funny.”

Max & Shredairs Monday-Friday at 7:30p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
