Q: Do you associate at all with your Good Luck Charlie character, Spencer?
A: You know, not really. He's gotten a little more relatable over the past year, but he's a sports guy. He's a sports star, he's kind of preppy and he's got a super rich family. We're pretty different. He is laid back, so it's not incredibly hard to play, but I can't really identify with a lot of things he's about. When he grew up on sports, I grew up on dancing (laughs).
For 22 years, Brandon was a fat kid living in Tucson, AZ, which gave him lots and lots of time to write. He now works at a magazine in New York City, but still loves writing almost as much as he loves muffins.
