Adam Brody is Animated in MTV’s ‘Good Vibes’

Adam Brody is marking his return to the small screen with another California-based show… only this time, he’s animated.

MTV’s ‘Good Vibes’ follows main character, Woodie (Brody), and his best friend Mondo (Josh Gad) as they enter their teenage years on the sunny beaches of Cali.

“It’s got sort of the touches on the Malibu or sort of O.C. wealth and opulence,” Brody tells The Hollywood Reporter. “But it also has Venice Beach’s much more arty and skuzzier elements, graffiti-laden elements as well. I really like both. I’m actually partial to the kind of the lower rent version. It’s got kind of a pot smoke haze over the whole thing.”

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Brody also jokes about how easy it is to play a teenage boy, although the actor is now 32.

“Fortunately, I’m not that evolved,” Brody says. “There’s a voice that took me a minute to find, but I’m very comfortable doing that now and you just have fun. Again, it’s not hard for me to dumb it down to high school.”

“It’s easier than I care to admit,” he continues. “You just have to have some fun with it and be really part of the fun when you do it because it has to read with no physicality, so you really want to kind of be over the top when you’re recording it.”

‘Good Vibes’ is the brainchild of David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness), so you know it’ll be funny… but will most likely include a lot of pot smoke, sexually charged boys, and attractive girls.

“I definitely think it’s the horniest cartoon on television,” Green says. “But, I think it’s the first one that you might get invested in the actual sexual escapades as well as the ongoing sort of romantic love interests and love stories in it.”

‘Good Vibes’ premieres tonight (Thursday) at 10:30pm on MTV.
