The Hard Times of RJ Berger

We had the pleasure of meeting the cast of the new MTV hit comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger while at Platinum Publicity's Save the Seas charity event for the MTV Movie Awards.

Wow, what a great cast. They were absolutely charming! Kara Taitz (Lily) , Jareb Dauplaise (Miles), Jayson Blair (Max) and Adam Cagley (Kevin) all stopped by and chatted with us about their new show. At the time the show had not aired and they all had a great energy and excitement about them.

Kara is super bubbly and adorable at a mere 5' tall. She went to highschool for the performng arts in NY and has been in such hit shows playing Millicent in  The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Fluffy on Wizards of Waverly Place.

Jareb has been seen in a slew of shows since 2002 and also appeared on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as Wayne Wormser. He's also been seen in 2009/2010 movies as Tom in Cougar Hunting, Joel in My Name is Matt and Blotto in The Prankster.  I think it's safe to say, Jareb will be sticking around as a funny man for many years. Jareb showed up to our table with his mom. TOO CUTE! so we had to gift her one of our new blinged out fleur de lis keychains soon to be up on www.wattoonline.etsy.com.

Jayson who plays the jerky hunk Max has been in well known shows such as CSI, Glee and Hot Hot Los Angeles. He's also playing Brandon Lewis in TV series Rizzoli & Isles.

Last, but certainly not least, Adam Cagley graced us with his presence and brought a fantastic energy with him. He loved our stuff and said he be sure to be seen wearing it about, so keep your eyes posted for pics. This young man graduated a year early (2008) and as class valedectorian! He's not only going to college, is an accomplished drummer, has been acting since age 11, but also has his own production company called Monkey Butt Productions. He's had parts in too many shows to mention and plays Reggie in 2010 The Wheeler Boys.

Though this show is certainly not for everyone and I wouldn't want my teen to watch it  (I don't have one, but I'm guessing this is how I'd feel), over 2 million viewers watched the premier and they already have over 85,000 on their facebook page. If you're in to dirty teen comedies, and have a good sense of humor than this show's for you. There were certainly some endearing moments where the cute nerdy RJ makes you remember your own high school insecurities and you'll find yourself rooting for the underdog.

Regardless of my personal taste in TV shows as I'm more the Food Network, HGTV crowd, I certainly wish these wonderful actors lots of success in their new show and careers! Rock on guys!-
