While I was looking forward to a break from New York City’s gloomy winter weather, wishing for bright skies and sunny rays of Texas warmth, instead I got mostly chills and an unfortunate bit of rain. Did the rain stop me from attending the Neighbors premiere though, getting you guys one of the first reviews? Hell no, what’s a little hypothermia anyway! Did it stop the cast of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series from continuing with my video interview at this year’s South by Southwest festival – even though we were outside on a concert stage? Absolutely not! What’s a little rain when there are vampire strippers to worry about!
Fighting the bitter cold and windy weather were cast members D.J. Cotrona, Zane Holtz, Wilmer Valderrama, and Eiza González, all actors stepping into iconic cult roles from Robert Rodriguez’s wild horror comedy from the 90s. With D.J. playing Seth and Zane playing Richie, we have a new look for the Gecko brothers, and Eiza has the honor of stepping into Santánico Pandemonium’s sexy heels. As for Wilmer, he gets to play a newer character named Carlos (or a character that now has more screen time).
Sitting down with the cast, and facing the time restrictions of an impending storm, I talked to our new heroes/victims about what it takes to enter the world of Robert Rodriguez and more importantly, how the original From Dusk Till Dawn shaped their participation in this new show.
