[Editor’s Note: The following is what IndieWire TV Critic Ben Travers claims to be an interview he conducted with Vanilla Ice — an “expert on ice,” according to Mr. Travers — about the new At&T Original Series, “Ice.” Despite his insistence, it’s quite clear that the below back-and-forth is not an interview (no recording or even transcript could be provided upon request), but simply a staged conversation using lyrics from “Ice, Ice, Baby” to introduce key points about the TV show, “Ice.” We apologize for his behavior, as well as to Mr. Ice, if he happens to read this. But it’s been a long week, so we’re just gonna go with it.]
All right, stop.
Yes, please. Let me stop you right here. If all you need to know about “Ice
” is whether or not it’s worth your time, I can safely assure you it’s not.
Collaborate and listen.
Collaborate? Like, who’s working together on “Ice
”? Well, that’s really the only reason anyone is aware “Ice
” exists. The At&T Original Series airing on DirecTV’s Audience Network is directed and produced by Antoine Fuqua
, and he’s easily the biggest name here. The main acting talent consists of Cam Gigandet
, who hasn’t aged a day (or discovered any depth of emotion) since he killed Marissa 10 years ago on “The O.C.
”, and Jeremy Sisto
, who’s back to playing the black sheep brother you want to love but know you can’t.Ice
is back with a brand new invention.
I have to disagree with you there.
