Adam Brody makes waves in ‘Good Vibes’, another “teen life in So.Cal” series

Looking at Woodie, the lanky, blond-Afroed “surf dude” in MTV’s new animated high school comedy Good Vibes, you would probably never be able to guess at the man behind him. Listening to Woodie, with his slow, relaxed drawl might not be much help. But the talented voice actor bringing Woodie to life, Adam Brody, swears that he has more in common with his new character than his fans might imagine.

“I liked the way he looked. He actually seemed to look a lot like me when I was in high school,” Brody laughed when LA TV Insider Examiner had a chance to catch up with him for the show’s premiere.

Brody didn’t necessarily go through the “Sun-In” phase in order to get his now dark hair so luxuriously blond, but he didn’t need to. He shared that since he surfed everyday when he was in high school, he had an au natural blond Afro. Plus, he feels he had a lanky build, too, just like Woodie. But he didn’t want to make the character too much like him, and so he adopts a much different voice for Woodie-- one that, without reading the show credits, probably would give you no clue he was even the guy doing it.
Advertisement

“You know, I auditioned and the way it was when I went in was I saw a sketch of the character, and I tried a couple ways, including just my own voice…I don’t know; it was the way that made the most sense to me and it seemed to work. It wasn’t really a conscious decision not to use my own voice,” Brody explained. “One of the most fun things on the show, I think for everyone…you know, we each fill in for when there’s a one-liner here or there, and that’s such a blast, to come up with a new character for one or two lines. I have gotten to do one or two in my own voice.”

Those may be Easter eggs his biggest fans relish in finding. Good Vibes in general is chock full of those moments, though. Since it is an animated series, Brody boasted that the show got to pack even more funny into every minute and every frame, simply by “drawing something funny happening in the background.” And it’s setting is ripe for comedy all on its own.

“I love the world, you know? It’s such a nice-- it’s a world I know really well. I grew up in Southern California, certainly being on The O.C. for a long time, it was just really fitting that this show of all of them would be the one I’d be on. It hit home, and I really enjoy the subject matter,” Brody said.

Like The O.C., Good Vibes is set in Southern California, but well, that’s really about where the parallels end, and that’s how Brody at this point prefers it. The world in Good Vibes is its own, though it will reference a lot of other pop culture phenomena simply because its characters are so caught up in that world. They may spend their free time on the beach, but their heads are not buried in the sand to the workings of Hollywood around them.

“I think already it is sort of a nod to The O.C. I think to take it a step forward and say have a Seth Cohen pop up on this might be gilding the lily a little. And I think it might be kind of an old reference at this point because the things they reference pop culture wise are almost all sort of current MTV shows, and so I don’t even know if half the audience would get the reference.”

Brody’s favorite moments from the show thus far have come from those almost “ripped from real life” scenarios, namely the upcoming “Floatopia” episode, which Brody admitted was based on a real life event down in San Diego.

“There’s a loophole where you can’t drink on the beach, but it was legal if you were a certain number of feet out in the water,” Brody previewed. “So a thousand beach-- there’s this video online where a thousand people are out in waist-deep water having a party out there. We have an episode based on that that’s fun and I think thematically mirrors the show very well. You know, they’re trying to become popular in school with girls…And I think that’s a really solid premise!”

Good Vibes is a high school show, and as much as it is taking on a lot of the issues that other high school shows are tackling (but just doing it in a more free-form and sardonic way; it is a cartoon after all!), it may also dabble in unintentional parody from time to time.

“We have a whole musical episode,” Brody teased. “It’s sort of a nod to Mamma Mia…I think nothing’s off-limits! We can certainly pull from everywhere, and there are certainly plenty of pop culture references and sort of teen references of the moment. I think we’ll take from whatever’s in the culture at the moment…Funny is funny, you know?”

Good Vibes airs on MTV on Thursday nights at 10:30pm, premiering on October 27th 2011.

Adam Brody talks MTV's 'Good Vibes': California, here we come

This fall, Adam Brody is playing a nerdy high school kid who, along with his best friend, is making an attempt to fit in (and get girls!) in a California beach town that caters to the rich and gorgeous.

Experiencing a little déjà vu? No, we're not taking you back to 2003 -- though Brody's latest character does remind us of "The O.C.'s" Seth Cohen on paper. As a long-time fan of animation, Brody is making the jump to voice acting with MTV's latest series "Good Vibes."

From creator David Gordon Green ("Eastbound & Down"), the series premieres tonight (Oct. 27) after the highly anticipated return of "Beavis & Butt-head," and, as is to be expected, it's snarky, dirty, and downright hilarious.

Brody plays Woodie, a laid-back kid whose family is the epitome of "Real Housewives"-type superficiality. He meets Jersey transplant Mondo (Josh Gad), and their friendship is immediately the stuff of Ryan-Seth bromance: "I've never had a bro before," Woodie says. "I've always been kind of a loner, but it's fun being loners together."

Brody sat down with Zap2it over the summer to discuss this latest addition to his resumé. Tune in tonight at 10:30 p.m. EST on MTV.

Zap2it: Talk to me about your character, Woodie.

Brody: He's got a blonde afro. He's a skinny guy. No, he was born and raised in Southern California, to a very powerful family, but his values are very opposite, very diametrically opposed to his family's. He loves the beach, he loves love, he loves nature, but his family is very much money-driven and driven by greed.

Zap2it: And he meets Mondo, and they're just best friends right off the bat.

Brody: Both of them aren't really developed yet -- you know, they're girl-obsessed, but they haven't had many, if any, conquests yet. Or even girlfriends, perhaps that's a better way to put it than 'conquests.' Woodie's pretty mellow. He's not very neurotic. He likes to chill.

Zap2it: How did you develop the voice? He doesn't sound like you at all.

Brody: I didn't really intellectualize it too much. I auditioned for it, and the way the lines were written, it's the only way that it sounded right. It was trial-and-error, trying to wrap my mind around the words. There's a little Spicoli in there, there's a lot of Barney the Dinosaur, maybe a little bit of Garth from "Wayne's World." But closest in tone is definitely Barney the Dinosaur, if Barney the Dinosaur was a horny skinny teenager.

Zap2it: What was it about this project that made you want to audition for it?

Brody: Well, first of all, I have to be honest - I'm just a huge David Gordon Green fan. That chance to work with him was a huge opportunity. It's not my first time auditioning for a cartoon - I did another pilot that didn't go. So many interests aligned with my own in this project, in terms of subject matter, it's nice. I don't want to use kismet, but I want to use a word that means the same thing as kismet. I feel very like-minded with the show.

Zap2it: In terms of making this big comeback to TV after "The O.C.," did you know that you definitely wanted to do an animated series?

Brody: No, I had no idea. As an actor so much of your time is spent looking for work, so you just evaluate all the opportunities that come your way and you pick one. Voiceover work is really fun -- the hours are basically a dream -- but it's not something that I'd ever focused on. It's really nice to be here on the other end of having done a season of it, to be able to say, "I did an animated series!"

Zap2it: People always talk about the pros of doing voiceover stuff -- going to work in your pajamas, and having great hours -- are there any downsides?

Brody: [laughing] I mean, it pays, very very small. Unless your show becomes a big hit, I guess, but the hours are so minimal so you get paid accordingly. But that's okay! You still do get paid to go screw around in front of a microphone, so no complaints here.

Zap2it: Were you ever in the room with other actors?

Brody: Unfortunately, no. The first two episodes I got to do with Josh Gad, but that's a real luxury. Other than that, we did it all solo. You get to do a table-read together, you do it with everyone once and you get a feel for it. It's not that weird for me -- maybe it would be weirder if I was a better actor, who's really working off the other person. Me, I'm so concentrated on myself and my own stuff that I'm not even listening, but you get to do the line three times fast in a row and try a couple versions, and then move on to the next one. With live action, there's so much waiting around before you even get to say your line, and you don't just get to do it a few different ways in a row. You're waiting on resets and other people. With this, I go "Let's go outside!" [Deeper] "Let's go outside!" [Faster] "Let's go outside!" and I'm done.

Zap2it: You guys are premiering following the return of "Beavis & Butt-head." Is there any pressure to that, being packaged with this incredibly iconic series?

Brody: Zero "Beavis & Butt-head" pressure. I certainly don't view it as a competition. It's such a classic, like, how could you? If it was another brand new animated show coming out at the same time, I'd be like "We must beat them! We will be the victors at the end of the season!" but no. It's "Beavis & Butt-head," so actually, we're fortunate that they're so established and people will watch that, so it's a great lead-in.

Zap2it: Are there any animated shows that you're watching right now?

Brody: Not regularly, but every time I do catch a new "Family Guy" or "Simpsons," they're hilarious, as funny as ever. "South Park," too. I grew up on the classics of my generation -- it was "Simpsons," then "Beavis & Butt-head," then "South Park," then "Family Guy." All great shows.

Zap2it: One of the benefits of being animated is that the show can get really raunchy. Even the pilot is super dirty.

Brody: I've been totally surprised by that! Absolutely, I can't believe it. I watched it with my parents and I was so embarrassed. I think what we can get away with is amazing, and morally, I personally feel like it's very much a reflection of where your head's at when you're 15 - and potentially now for some of us - what you're talking about, what's on the brain. And I also think there's a heart and good morals under it. The material is explicit, but it's following good people with good values. That's all you can do. If they're exposed to drugs and breasts and penis surfboards along the way, you just try to come at it from a healthy place.

Zap2it: Is it weird to watch it and hear your voice coming out of this character?

Brody: It's not weird so much as -- well, I really hated it. The first couple of episodes I saw, I hated myself. I was like, 'I can't hear me, I'm having trouble understanding what I'm saying, I'm the least funny.' But I've grown to like it. I can hear it now.

Zap2it: What'd your parents think?

Brody: They liked it. They were surprisingly not horrified. You would think so, but I guess I've got a cool mom.

Adam Brody Talks MTV's 'Good Vibes,' Watching Cartoons And How Anna Faris Inspired Woodie's Voice

Adam Brody is not Seth Cohen -- but he is still hanging out in the OC. In the new MTV animated series "Good Vibes," Brody voices the character of Woodie, a very horny southern California teenager who befriends new kid Mondo is in a coming-of-age, raunchy surfer comedy.

Brody describes the series as "the horniest show on television," and we would have to agree. With enough potty humor to make Beavis and Butt-head say, "Uh-huh-huh ... You said [insert perverse remark]" -- and even a surf board graffitied to look like a penis -- this just might be every teenage boy's favorite new show. And every man-child's too.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Brody fills us in on how he created Woodie's unique voice, why this is quite possibly the horniest show ever and the budding bromance between Woodie and Mondo.

So, this is sort of the raunchy animated comedy that teenage boys will love, right?

Yeah, I assume so. My mom liked it a lot too, so you never know! We may have a wider audience than just horny little boys.

Are you excited that your show is following the return of Mike Judge's "Beavis and Butt-Head"?

I am excited for "Beavis and Butt-Head," but that show is so good that I don't want to look bad in comparison. But to be associated with them is awesome. I think a lot of people will tune in to "Beavis and Butt-head," and I hope that they'll stay to watch our show. I mean, you may as well. It's kind of the same thing, but we at least have the beach and hot animated girls in bikinis.

This is sort of like your triumphant return to television, so what made you want to sign on for this project?

David Gordon Green was what really made me want to sign on. He created the show, and I just love him. His movies are incredible. "Eastbound & Down" was amazing. So there was that, and the fact that I had never done an animated show before. It was something new, and I really enjoyed the entire process. I would always do this if I could. It's been a lot of fun.

Do you have any animated favorites?

Yeah, totally. I definitely went through a few phases in the last 20 years. You know, it started with "The Simpsons" and then I moved on to "Beavis and Butt-Head" and then "South Park" came along. Those were all big shows in my life.

I think I've seen every single episode of "South Park," and I'm not even ashamed to say it.

Really? You shouldn't be. I have friends that still watch it, and I hear it's really good. That's the cool thing about animated shows versus live action. In live action, every one just gets so old, but with animated shows, if you can keep the writing fresh, then you can keep going. Look at shows like "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy." Now, I don't expect to do this for 10 years, but we could.

Where did the inspiration for Woodie's voice come from? Because it's definitely not your speaking voice.

I think all of us, minus Danny McBride, auditioned for our parts. I can't recall if they had a drawing of the character at the time of my audition. I think they did. To be honest, it just came out. I tried a few different voices, including my own regular speaking voice, but that one -- the one I created for Woodie -- felt the most organic when I was saying the lines. It was trial and error, really. There's definitely some Barney the Dinosaur in there. There's a bit of Spicoli from "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," and I think, for a moment, there was a bit of Anna Faris in there, but I'm not sure if there is anymore.

Do you share any similarities to Woodie?

I actually looked like him. I'm not lying. I surfed every day when I was in high school, so my hair got blonde from the sun, and it was dirty from the water, so I had a blonde afro, just like Woodie.

What are people going to get out of this show aside from boob jokes?

I mean, that's really it. I think our show is really horny. It's probably the horniest show on television, and I think that's really true for 16-year-old boys -- at least it was for me! This show kind of combines the two things I were interested in as a teenage boy: boobs and surfing. Like, there's an episode coming up where Woodie and Mondo go undercover as women to volunteer on the mammogram truck, so that's pretty much what you'll get. But I mean, my mom likes it, so I think it will have some unlikely fans.

"Good Vibes" premieres Thursday, Oct. 27 at 10:30PM ET on MTV, following the triumphant return of "Beavis and Butt-Head" at 10 p.m. ET. Watch the promo for the new animated show below.

ADAM BRODY GETS ANIMATED
The sunshiny world of beach-side towns is not unfamiliar territory for Adam Brody -- in addition to growing up surfing, he brought one of the most beloved beach bums of the millennium to life as Seth Cohen on The O.C. Now, he returns to ride some waves on MTV's animated series Good Vibes, which premieres tonight after the re-launch of Beavis & Butthead.


I chatted with Adam about how it feels to be part of MTV's cartoon resurgence, why he can relate to stoned, horny high schoolers and what it was like getting stabbed in Scream 4.
Insider: What was it that attracted you to Good Vibes?
Adam Brody: I like the creative team – I'm a huge David Gordon Green fan and I just love the world. I grew up surfing but there were no surf cartoons. Sure, every now and then Garfield would go to Hawaii, but I always longed for a surf cartoon. The beach is already a tranquil, idyllic place and animation is very pleasing to the eye, so there's always been something about the two of them together that has worked in a fundamental way for me. I'm a big fan of the animated ocean. I know it's simplistic, but it is what it is. And I think it’s really funny. I like the guys – horny high schoolers who are getting stoned. I can relate.
Insider: Do you have a favorite episode?
Adam: One of the episodes is about this loophole – which is real, mind you -- that says you can't drink on the beach but can drink if you're a certain number of feet out, so the guys make a party barge on the water where everyone goes. And that really happens in San Diego. Go to YouTube, it's crazy. Otherwise, you'll see a lot of Mondo's on-going quest to assimilate while also trying to get with Gina. Not that he's picky – both Woody and Mondo are in the market for any female companionship but Mondo definitely has his sights set on the beautiful Gina and that romance starts to blossom. Otherwise, they get up to 12 beach-centric adventures that give you more hornyness and more boobs.
Insider: Tonight sees the premieres of Beavis & Butthead and Good Vibes -- how does it feel to be part of this cartoon resurgence?
Adam: It feels good. I think it's nice because MTV plays everything in blocks – 30 episodes of Teen Mom – so I think it'll be soothing to find 2 hours of cartoons.
Insider: Reminds me of their Liquid Television days.
Adam: Oh man, Liquid Television was awesome. I haven't thought of that in forever! I really liked that group of shows a lot.
Insider: What were some of your other favorite cartoons growing up?
Adam: I was in elementary school when The Simpsons came out, that was a big deal for me. Junior high was all about Beavis & Butthead and then high school was South Park. All of those were huge for me.
Insider: On that tip, we're roughly the same age, so Scream came out at a prime time for me -- what was it like to be a part of Scream 4?
Adam: Oh man, that was surreal. I mean, I was watching Wes Craven direct Ghostface. Then you’re in a scene with the Deputy Dewey. And Ghostface stabbed me. That was kind of a big moment. Suffice it to say, working on that was quite a treat for the high school me.
Good Vibes airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. on MTV.
