In a recent interview with Young Star, Brett Davern who plays Jake on Awkward, briefly talks about the blossoming bromance - or as they name it, Breaumance, between him and Beau.
YOUNG STAR: Well, the fans love the bromance that’s developed between you two. You’ve even got an actor’s love seat that says “Breau” on it…
Davern: We’re always playing pranks on set and it’s very much a lighthearted family atmosphere. People like to poke fun at people. One day, Beau and I just walked in and Lauren had gotten our prop guy to make this chair. It was hilarious. They didn’t think Beau and I were gonna sit in it but we ended up sitting in it for the rest of the season (laughs)….

In September Beau attended the 9th Annual Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood Party. Getty Images Entertainment spoke with him briefly about his excitement for the night and his upcoming productions.
NewsMail has posted a short article on MTV’s Awkward. with a few words from Beau.
“WHETHER you’re going through it or old enough to look back and laugh, almost everyone has experienced those universally awkward moments of teenage-dom.
No matter how talented or well adjusted a person may be, it’s impossible to get through high school without those moments of embarrassment and self-consciousness.
Where My So Called Life tackled the melancholy of the teenage years, Awkward tackles the cringe-worthy moments that shape and sometimes scar us.
The series is MTV’s successful foray back into scripted programming after years of domination by reality shows like Jersey Shore and 16 and Pregnant.
It follows Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards), a 15-year-old who gains immediate, yet unwanted, popularity at her high school when the student body mistakes an accident she has for a suicide attempt.
“It’s probably the most enjoyable filming process I’ve been a part of,” said Beau Mirchoff, who plays Jenna’s on-off love interest Matty McKibben.
“There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t control my laughter. There are some ridiculous things that happen on the set. Once the cameras are going we’ve all been at it long enough where we can get into the zone and get it done…
For all the Awkward. fans, Mike Hale of The New York Times posted a fantastic and lengthy article on the hit MTV show.
“WHILE the big-four networks crow about the ratings for “New Girl” and “2 Broke Girls” and give full-season orders to unexceptional shows like “Up All Night,” here’s a tip: The smartest, freshest, most moving new sitcom of 2011 finished its first season in September. On MTV.
You can still catch up with “Awkward” pretty easily. All 12 episodes can be streamed, for now, at mtv.com, along with a batch of the usual video extras: Webisodes, cast interviews and so on. This month a Season 1 DVD will be available (for $17.99) from Amazon.com through the company’s CreateSpace on-demand service.
“Awkward” (which has been renewed for a second season next year) has a place in several strategies at MTV. It’s part of the network’s semistealth move — under the cover of reality hits like “Jersey Shore” and “16 and Pregnant” — into fictional programming. That campaign has had some spectacular failures, like “Skins,” but also some notable successes (“Teen Wolf,” in addition to “Awkward”), and it continues. “I Just Want My Pants Back,” a scripted comedy produced by Doug Liman and set among people in their 20s in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, will begin early next year.
More important, “Awkward” is MTV’s answer to the high-school-girl dramas and comedies on ABC Family and CW, the networks that have dominated the market for female teenage angst. But while it has a strong surface similarity to a gamut of shows from “Gossip Girl” to “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” to “10 Things I Hate About You,” it’s consistently more inventive, less predictable and just plain funnier…
Now that November has arrived, here is our DOTM!
