[ # ] Who’s pranking who on the Ruby & the Rockits set?
August 18th, 2009 under Alexa PenaVega, Austin Butler, Freeform, Pranks

ABC Family’s Ruby & the Rockits really is a fun set to be on, not only because all 4 of the Cassidy brothers are working on it but also because the kids on the show know how to play a good prank or two on each other! Alexa Vega might be playing the cousin of Austin Butler and Kurt Doss, who are playing brothers but really these three are more like siblings than co-stars.
I recently did a set visit and the three of them told us about the practical jokes that happen when the camera is off. Here are the pranks that they played on each other and see how they don’t know who did what to who.

Austin’s cereal…
Austin: So I was having to eat Cap’n Crunch in the scene, and I left for a second, and they filled it with salt. I didn’t want to eat it because it’s soggy and I don’t like soggy cereal, and then they were like, “Oh, no, it’s really good. Cap’n Crunch is really good soggy.” So I was like, “Okay, I’ll try it.” And so not only was it soggy, it was salty like crazy. So it was terrible.
Alexa: We were in the middle of shooting a scene a couple weeks ago, and we’re supposed to be eating breakfast at the table, and I was like, “Hey, Kurt, watch this.” And I totally unscrewed the salt lid, and I’m like pouring salt all over Austin’s cereal. And that was probably a bad idea because it suddenly unlocked this thing in his mind that that’s okay. “I didn’t know we could do that.” I was like, “Oh shoot, I probably shouldn’t have done that because we’re going to get in trouble now.”

The bra on Austin’s door…
Kurt: Well, I found a bra inside our dressing room. It’s like just right around this corner before we get to the stage. And I picked it up and I thought, “This will be—this gives me ideas.” So, I tape it to his door. And I wrote a note on the bra when I taped it. And it said, “Wardrobe said you dropped this. Your loving brother Ben.” I asked Alexa to take a look at it. She thought it was funny. It turns out it was her bra, so twice the funny. He’s going to be the jokester. He thinks he can retaliate, but no.

How Austin and Alexa protect themselves against little Kurt:
Austin: Last Friday, while we were doing the show, the audience was here, we had one scene in between our scenes that we were going to be in, and I saw him walking with this group of keys. And he had been warning me all day that he was going to get me. And I was like, “Oh, this can’t be good.” So I went to my room, and I hid in my bathroom. And sure enough, five minutes later him and four guys came in there, and Kurt’s like, “Oh, here’s the plan. We’re going to put all his furniture in the middle of the room.” And then they had this huge thing of Saran Wrap, and I came out and I screamed at him. And he’s like, “Oh. You got me.” So yeah. He was going to Saran Wrap all my furniture together.
Alexa: And my boyfriend shows up on set the next Friday after he heard about all these jokes going on, and Kurt was planning on playing another joke on Austin. And my boyfriend walks up to him, and he’s a producer, and he goes, “Listen, Kurt, I’m going to say this once. I know where to find 300 live tarantulas. Don’t think about messing with Alexa’s room. That’s all I’m saying.” And Kurt’s just like, “Yes sir,” and walk away. But yeah, I was just like what if he gets me? I don’t want to get messed with. I just want to be the one that helps him out. So we have a couple cool ideas that we’re going to try on poor Austin. He’s like the poor guy that gets picked on. But I’m sure I’ll end up getting hit one of these days.

Souds like Austin needs to be just as afraid of Alexa as he is of Kurt.
BTW besides playing jokes on each other, these three actors’ futures are really bright. Alexa Vega can sing and act and even though she has been doing this for a long time, she is still so sweet and respectful and unspoiled by Hollywood. Austin Butler is an up and coming teen idol as he should be because like Alexa he can sing and act, plus he has the hair that drives girls crazy. And then there is 13 year old Kurt Doss who is like the cutest thing ever. We all fell in love with this little man the second he started talking. He is funnier than most of the comedians that are 2, 3, 4 and 5 times his age.
Ruby and the Rockits is as fun to watch as it sounds like it to work on. So check it out tonight and every Tuesday night at 8:30p on ABC Family after 10 Things I Hate About You.
