Skating with the Stars‘ Brandon Mychal Smith tells HollywoodLife about anticipating Demi’s return

We’ve just confirmed Sonny with a Chance will begin filming the week of Jan. 30, although it’s still unknown whether Demi Lovato will be released from her treatment facility in time. So what do her castmates think about her return to work?

“Everybody is really excited that Demi is still resting, taking time to relax, so I applaud her in that regard,” says Brandon Mychal Smith, who plays Nico Harris on the show. “When we start filming again, I’m sure everything will be back to normal.”

In the meantime, Brandon is excited about the third season of Sonny with a Chance. “We have totally revamped the show! This season we are going to focus more on the “So Random” aspect, which is basically the SNL aspect of our show! We want to really bring you guys the funny!”

His dream guest star? “Halle Berry is one, that’d be great! She’s beautiful!” Anybody else the actor/singer would like to work with? “I love Willow Smith, and even little Jaden has some great energy, maybe even get Justin Bieber on a song on my upcoming album as well!”

But the person he’s most looking forward to working with is his co-star Demi. “We will get back into the groove!”
