INTERVIEW: Alisa Reyes, Excited for ‘All That’ Reunion

Many of us (at least people my age) grew up watching a lot of Nickelodeon and we all remember All That, a live-action comedy sketch show that mimicked Saturday Night Live— except it was for kids! I’ve spent a lot of afternoons watching the show and giggling. Many of the former All That cast members are reuniting for the first time at Comikaze Expo. How fun is it to see all of them all ‘grown up’ as well?

Alisa Reyes, one of All That‘s child star and now currently gorgeous actress with shows like NYPD Blue and Boston Public on her growing resumé, will be at the convention as a guest of honor.

Seriously though, how pretty is she? Not only is she super busy acting on screen, Alisa has also done many voices for animated shows. Plus, she is also writing, singing and producing movies! She certainly have come a long way since her Nickelodeon years. For your chance to see Alisa in person, along with Kel Mitchell, Lisa Folies, Katrina Johnson, Jack DeSena and many more, please join us at Comikaze Expo on November 5th and 6th this year at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Alisa was very kind to take the time and answer some questions for Defective Geeks.

How excited are you to have an ‘All That’ reunion at Comikaze Expo? Are you surprised by the amount of fans who have responded postiively to the event?

REYES: It’s truly amazing. The fans from day one is what makes the show what it still is today. All That is currently airing on Teen Nick right now because they petitioned to get it back on the air. The show has been a hit for a decade and being a part of the original cast is an honor. I am not at all surprised by all the love and support because its been like that since the beginning. When you have a generation that loves this type of show, then it’s an uphill journey of nothing but love. That’s why I am so psyched to do this expo.

The Hoff, Master of Disaster in Burnout Crash!

When you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to David Hasselhoff… think again. The former Baywatch actor turned reality TV show star is now the celebrity figure behind EA’s Burnout Crash! campaign. They’ve released this pretty crazy commercial that is gradually making its rounds around the internet. I mean, who doesn’t want to see The Hoff act all wacky? I think the video will speak for itself.

I know. No words can quite express all the visuals from the 2-minute long commercial. The game is available on both the Playstation Network and XBox LIVE Arcade. The game itself looks fun to play during parties or with a big group of friends hanging out. I’m sure most of us will wish that The Hoff would show up and say the line: “Time to get plucked.”
