Attention, children of the '90s! Former star of Kenan and Kel and lover of orange soda, aka, Kel Mitchell, is returning to Nickelodeon with a new show called Game Shakers. That's right: he overcame that pesky death hoax to bring us the best SNICK-themed throwback ever. Best day ever!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the show centers around two 7th grade girls who create a successful mobile gaming app and start a company. (Oh, tweens these days.) Mitchell will appear in the form of a rapper called Double G who, after threatening to sue the girls for using one of his songs without permission, ends up partnering with them.
“I get to play a hip-hop mogul who is the comedic version of artists like Kanye, Diddy, Eminem and 50 Cent,” Mitchell told Entertainment Weekly. “Double G is a rapper/singer/dancer/entrepreneur/investor, which gives us great story lines on the show. I love playing such a wild character, because you will see some great physical comedy, but he also has heart; he is a single dad that loves his son, Triple G, played by the very talented Benjamin ‘Lil P-Nut’ Flores, Jr. There are so many layers to this character that it is one of those dream-come-true roles.”
If you're anything like me, you celebrating by cracking open a two-liter of orange soda and dreaming of eating a good burger right now. Might I suggest you also check out these awesome GIFs that remind me exactly why Mitchell needs to be back on Nickelodeon now.
