On Tuesday (August 2), California punk/pop rockers [artist id="3510751"]Best Coast[/artist] premiered the video for “Our Deal,” a single off their debut album, Crazy for You. The Drew Barrymore-directed vid features a ton of up-and-coming-celeb cameos, from Donald Glover to Miranda Cosgrove.
MTV News recently caught up with “iCarly” herself, and she told us the highlight of that very fun shoot was getting to work with Barrymore.
“I had a great time,” Cosgrove said. “I’ve been watching Drew Barrymore movies ever since I was really little, so I was nervous to meet her.”
Once on set, though, Cosgrove got over any nervousness about working with one of her biggest role models. “She’s really like your best friend,” Cosgrove said.
The video, which was shot back in June, takes pages from classic forbidden-love movies like “West Side Story,” “Grease” and “Rebel Without a Cause.” Cosgrove’s co-stars, “Kick Ass” actress Chloë Moretz and “Teen Wolf” Tyler Posey, play star-crossed lovers from two rival gangs. Cosgrove, playing a member of the Night Creepers crew, gets beaten up by the Trotters gang, and that fight sparks a rooftop dance-off.
“It was me and Chloë Moretz,” Cosgrove continued. “She’s really sweet, and Tyler Posey from ‘Teen Wolf.’ I just started watching the show,” she added about the MTV series. “It’s really good.”
The Best Coast video wasn’t Barrymore’s first turn in the director’s chair — the A-list actress made her directorial debut with the 2009 flick “Whip It” — so what was she like on set?
“She’s really laid-back and she was really excited to be doing the video and super into it,” Cosgrove said. “She directed the whole video, which was really cool. It was really surreal.”
