Mark Pitta, a reporter for KTVU in California, was able to do a sit-down interview with Kevin Richardson on the set of ‘Chicago.’ Pitta asked Kevin how being in the Backstreet Boys contrasts doing theatre. Kevin said he’s glad that the group became so huge that they are enabled to do solo things like this, and all the guys in the group are benefiting. Pitta then asked if they’d ever drop the ‘Boys’ out of Backstreet Boys. Kevin said the Beastie Boys, Pet Shop Boys, and Beach Boys haven’t done so after all these years and neither will the Backstreet Boys. He then discusses how ‘Chicago’ the movie came out right when he was rehearsing for the Broadway musical. He says he found it interesting how he and Richard Gere approached various aspects of the character Billy Flynn in contrasting ways. Kevin did say however that his take on Flynn wasn’t really influenced that much by Gere’s, because he didn’t want to borrow or steal anything from him. He wanted to make the role his own. Kevin then told Pitta his daily routine. He works out at the gym, performs his role Billy Flynn at the San Francisco Golden Gate Theatre, and then writes/produces music for some of the artists he knows in California. Kevin’ll be in San Francisco for three weeks and then heads to London to do the same thing there. KTVU.com has since removed the video.
