The last time we saw Brian “Astro” Bradley, he was spitting rhymes on season one of the competition show X Factor. Now, some three years later, the Brooklyn native has landed his first starring role in the Disney flick Earth to Echo.
HipHollywood sat down with the Astro, and his cast mates to talk about the film, directed by Dave Green, and about paying homage to 80s films like E.T.
“I think Daves goal was to try and bring back that lost genre of family movies,” said Teo Halm. “But, Earth to Echo is different in the since that it has a modern flair to it involving technology and YouTube,” added Ella Wahlestedt. “It’s for this generation.”
And, if you’re wondering if Astro is still working on music, he tells us an album is in the works.
Earth To Echo is in theaters July 2.
