Word on the Street: If you could escape into the world of one TV show or movie, what would it be and why?

“‘Blue Lagoon’ … because in that movie, because they’re stuck on a deserted island, they’re accustomed to living a very simple life and finding happiness in the most basic things. I feel like I would prefer to live in an environment where there wasn’t everything that we have now, and I could learn to live and appreciate literally the most simple things. So, I feel like that would be the movie that I would guarantee choose.”

“‘The Flash’ so that I don’t have to worry about traffic and get to school.”

“What is that one movie with The Rock? ‘Jumanji!’ I would choose ‘Jumanji’ because it’s like the board game and it’s very fun. They go through different obstacles, you have to figure out a way to … solve the problem before they can get back to home. I think that’s fun.”

“‘Fat Joe’, the cartoon. Nobody dies.”

“‘Game of Thrones’ because I want to fly a dragon (laughs). That’s the main thing. Anything with dragons, I’m in.”
