and you can rest assured that he’ll be just as strange and awesome in the new
know 15-year-old Noah Munck as the crazy, funny and ridiculous Gibby on Nickelodeon’s
5 of the hit show kicks off tonight with a brand new episode “iApril Fools”
(catch it at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on
Nickelodeon) and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for all the characters.
hold us over until tonight’s events, we caught up with Noah to get the inside scoop
on his co-stars, the future for Gibby and fun times on set! Check out what he
had to say below.
GL: Should Gibby have a love
interest this season?
Noah: I would like
that! I mean, it’s funny how they’ve evolved Gibby’s character into this
ladies’ man who doesn’t really care about girls. He has an attitude like, ‘Oh,
whatever.’ But I would love for Gibby to get a girlfriend and maybe cast Hailee
Steinfeld. I have a huge crush on her.
So are you
like that with the ladies, too?
No way! I like to flirt and respect
ladies. I’m not like Gibby in that way. [But] it’s fun to play a character like
that. It’s a departure from myself.
would you love to see happen to Gibby this season?
style makeover. He’s been wearing Dockers, khakis and 40-year-old man clothes
from the time I’ve been on the show. So, I mean, it would be cool if he could
get sweet rocker clothes.
In a nutshell,
describe the vibe on the iCarly set.
stuff happens every day. We have inside jokes that are crazy and the creator of
the show, Dan Schneider, will come on set and pop out during scenes. We won’t
know he’s hiding there and he’ll just pop out and scream as loud as he can to
scare us all. It's crazy!
What do you
love most about your iCarly
[Cosgrove] and Jennette [McCurdy] are the sweetest two people I know. Just to
work with them has been an honor. Nathan’s been my bro through this. We play
video games together, talk about guy stuff and hangout.
We’re sooo excited for One
Direction’s guest appearance in an upcoming episode. What was it like working
was amazing! They’re just so down to earth. I hadn’t heard of them when they
came on, but I am a huge fan of music, so I was like, “Who are these guys?”
Now, we’re like bros. I’m getting into electronic music producing, so we talked
about that and they gave me [great] insight. It was a lot of fun to have them
Not only are
you a talented actor, but you’re also big on community service and have gone on
some humanitarian trips to Haiti. What was that like?
changes my perspective every time I go. It’s a refresher of how I should view
life because it’s so inspiring to see people who have so little be so happy.
It’s like I have nothing to complain about over here. It’s really rewarding to serve
sure to catch Gibby and the rest of the iCarly
gang on Nickelodeon tonight in an all-new episode of iCarly at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT
