He plays Oliver, one of two kids who discover a superhero hospital and naturally, stick around to see what happens. As the series prepares for its first-season finale, we checked in with Jake to ask him about the Mighty Med experience.

"How can anyone not be a fan of superheroes?" Jake said when we connected with him last week. Teasing what's still to come, he told us, "We have a lot of surprises in store, and we love th...

Reid Scott
Reid Scott charmed us as Brendan Dorff on TBS's quirky comedy My Boys. Now he's lending his voice to a super-quick snail as the title character in Netflix's first kid-oriented original series, Turbo FAST, a spinoff from the popular Dreamworks film. BFTV had the chance to chat with Reid recently about getting animated, and also snagged an update on his current TV gig, HBO's political laugher Veep.

"It’s always been my dream to be a cartoon, so when producer Chris Prynoski came to me to play the part – we worked together previously – I jumped at it," he told us. "Nothing is better than showi...

The Haunting Hour
Sometimes we feel like Tom Kenny voices every animated TV character in existence. Possibly with some help from Billy West and Maurice LaMarche. But he's taking a rare step out from behind the microphone with today's episode of The Haunting Hour. BFTV talked with Tom on Friday about playing creepy kids' show host Uncle Howee, and we'll say this: you probably won't look at Spongebob Squarepants quite the same way again.

"It's fun," he said of returning to acting, which was a part of his early career, before we knew him as Spongebob, Heffer Wolfe, or Ice King. "It's the same in the sense that...

What do we need to know about "Christmas With The Aquabats"? "It's important to know that Christmas is a forbidden word in some villages, cities, planets and countries. We're all fighting for the freedom of Christmas across the Universe!" Christian told us. "It's also important to understand why Christmas is so special to our little Ricky Fit...

Spencer Boldman doesn't have superpowers, but he's still pretty super. One of the stars of Disney XD's hit series Lab Rats, Spencer joined BFTV recently to discuss the show - which is in the middle of its second season and already renewed for a third - and its impact on his life and career.

"This second season, there's a lot of drama that happens toward the end of it, that's going to leave a lot of the fans really shocked," teased the actor, who plays bionic teen Adam Davenport. "There's still a ton of funny stuff, superpowers and that kind of thing, but the stakes are raised, definitely."...

Voltron James Corray
I have a love/hate relationship with the 1980s ‘Voltron’/’Robotech’ series. While I love the creative teams and support both the originary and continuing projects, I’m hesitant regarding how they started. At this year's New York Comic Con, World Events Production held two different panels on Friday and Sunday celebrating ‘Robotech’ and ‘Voltron’'s upcoming cross-over/monumental anniversaries with 'Voltron' creative director Jeremy Corray; Tommy Yune, Robotech Creative Director; Bob Koplar, WEP VP; Kevin McKeever, Robotech Marketing VP; and Joseph Rybandt, Dynamite Comics' Senior Editor, as ...
