In The CW’s charming new drama ALL AMERICAN, Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) is a superstar at his South Crenshaw high school: a talented football player and a bright student. But his life changes when the Beverly High School coach Billy (Taye Diggs) recruits him, and offers to have Spencer live with him and his family. (Think THE OC meets FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.)

“It’s a gift of a part as an actor, because you get to bounce between two worlds,” Ezra says in the video below. “For Spencer, it’s very, very difficult. I think the one thing he’s centered by is his ability in football; he knows he’s good, and everyone knows he’s good. But off the field, in school, it’s completely different…what’s great about the show is as we go on, we start to—hopefully—break down those walls and realize that understand it all, we’re just human beings.”

Check out more from Ezra, as he teases the relationship between Billy and Spencer, and why playing football has led to “real friendships on set.” 

ALL AMERICAN, Series Premiere, Wednesday, October 10, 9/8c, The CW
