‘Expelled’ Movie: Cameron Dallas & Marcus Johns Talk New Movie
In the movie, Cameron plays Felix, the biggest prankster in town who always seems to find a way to elude punishment. But his luck runs short when his high school principal expels him.
Felix goes to great lengths to hide it from his parents, and enlists the help of his hilarious brother (Marcus), best friend (Matt Shively), friend (Lia Marie Johnson) and classmate (Andrea Russett) to do so.
“Obviously, the support from the fans [was a motivator in taking the next step to film],” Marcus told HollywoodLife.com. “Getting us to that level of recognition to where these execs and these people at Awesomeness TV gave us the opportunity and said these kids have something special going on…it’s really cool for our fans and us.”
In case you want to know how many fans they have, Cameron has over six million followers on Vine and nearly four million on Twitter, while Marcus is averaging a pretty five million on Vine and over 280,000 on Twitter. Bow down, y’all.
As perfect as they are on social media, Cameron and Marcus did encounter some troubles on set.
“I think one of the most difficult things for me is I get very distracted,” Cameron told us. “It was hard for me to stay focused sometimes when we were filming and stay in the scene.”

We had to ask them: Is there anything they have done or would do to get expelled? Their answers will surprise you.
“I mean, I’ve done a lot things that I probably should have gotten expelled for, but I got out of it,” Cameron said. Talk about a tease!
Marcus detailed a fight he got into in high school, but managed to not even get suspended for it. Nicely done, Marcus.
Expelled is a big jumping off point for both Cameron and Marcus. They’ve shot to superstardom on the internet, and they’re not slowing down anytime soon. (Seriously, if haven’t checked out their Vine accounts, then you need to do so ASAP.)
Marcus admits that the past two years have been such a “blur” and the entire movie and internet experience has been “surreal.”
“It’s very crazy, but it’s very humbling,” Cameron continued. “The fact that people have supported us from the very beginning…For me, from Instagram posts to little selfie posts to six-second Vines to five-minute YouTube videos to now full-length features, it’s great.”
Expelled will have an online release starting Dec. 16.
