In a world full of multi-talented celebrities, Flavor Flav has done just about everything. From his early days as co-founder of legendary hip-hop act Public Enemy to three different hit reality shows, he’s always managed to prove the doubters wrong. And so now he’s trying his hand in yet another new field — sitcoms.
With his new MyNetworkTV sitcom, Under One Roof, set to premiere April 16, Flav took some time out to talk to OK!.
What’s it been like shooting Under One Roof?
It’s a challenge to me right now. I’m reading lines and remembering lines and delivering lines. It’s a lot different than what I was doing on VH1. Doing scripted acting is a challenge to me. I can’t remember things to good so remembering lines is a challenge to your boy.
Have your co-stars given you any advice?
My boy Kadeem [Hardison] came through — he gave me some acting advice. Showed me how to break my script down to where I can start remembering it.
Have you seen the show yet?
The payoff is at the end of the work… I know I have a hit show on my hands.
So, will we see you on Flavor of Love?
I’m not doing no more Flavor of Loves. I’m trying to grow. I don’t want to stay on the same page. You can’t stay on the same page in order to get to the next chap.
How do you balance being a dad and having all these projects?
The time that I’m off is the time I try and see my kids the most. I try and take care of their needs. I try and spend a lot of time with my kids. I try and have fun with my kids. I try to put father time in there.
Most importantly, would you watch Under One Roof if you weren’t on it?
I sure would. The reason why is because I like watching myself on TV.
Check out Under One Roof, premiering April 16 on MyNetworkTV.
