Kevin Covais Interview - 'College' and 'American Idol'

Kevin Covais (American Idol (2006) and College)

You have a movie…

Kevin Covais: "Yes, I do."

How the heck did you get a movie? You're a singer.

Kevin Covais: "I know. It was weird. Coming off of American Idol there were definitely those musical opportunities that I continue to pursue. But I was a young kid; I'm still taking my time. But it just so happened I went back and I did high school, went back home to New York and acting kind of just fell into my lap. I mean, I got the opportunity to go on a few casting calls, auditioned for this great movie called College and happened to get a lead role in the film. It's an MGM Studios comedy and it hits theaters August 29th, so I'm just thrilled."

So tell me about your part in it.

Kevin Covais: "Well, I play Morris Hooper. He's this geeky, reserved young guy who heads off to college, to look at college with two of his buddies. And basically he goes from his reserved ways and he gets to experience some things. It's all pretty funny and a little humiliating, but in the best possible ways so people should enjoy it."

Wait, how's it humiliating?

Kevin Covais: "Oh well, you know, I can't give anything away. But there are some parts that people will want to see. I think they'll get a good laugh. Some things that people wouldn't expect me to do. But it's not me, it's Morris Hooper, so please keep that in mind."

So tell me about American Idol. Did it open a ton of doors for you after the show was over?

Kevin Covais: "You know I always tell people I was really loving my life before American Idol, but as a result of doing the show it's given me those opportunities that I never thought I'd see. I mean, you know, with acting now and continuing to sing, and what I do for diabetes. I'm a diabetic and I work with the ADA so there's just so much going on – a lot of great work. And it definitely has provided me with those few opportunities that I didn't think I was going to have."

I hate to ask you this but the Chicken Little nickname…is it sticking with you?

Kevin Covais: "Of course, naturally, yes it does. It's great. It's all in good fun. I'm fine with it because really, honestly, it just makes me think about fans and my American Idol experience. How could I not think back to that and smile? It's all in good fun. I don't let things like that upset me."

Have you watched the show? Do you keep up with what's going on?

Kevin Covais: "Of course not. No, I definitely watch it. I was a fan before, and I continue to be a fan. You know, I've been keeping track this year."

Who is your favorite?

Kevin Covais: "Well, you know what? I was really pulling for Chikezie. I loved him. Great personality, he gave a phenomenal performance in the Top 12. But of course he's gone now so my money's on David Cook. I think he's phenomenal. He's great. He's really something else and I think I'm not the only one rooting for him. His chances are pretty good."

What do you think about the young guys this year? There's a good group of them.

Kevin Covais: "You know what? There really are. David Archuleta clearly, he's phenomenal. His vocals are so powerful. He stands a really good chance. I'm real happy for him. He's given the young guys a real good name for once. Not necessarily that underdog role that myself and others may have had on the show. So I'm happy about it. It's a good thing."

How do you balance the singing with the acting? How do you keep doing both?

Kevin Covais: "When I was younger I loved both equally so I knew that if I was going to pursue this, and now it's crazy that I am, but now that I am I think it's just the love for both that keeps me going with it. I love to do both and I look forward to eventually putting out that album. But for now it's the acting and I'm excited about that."
