Acting may have brought MKTO’s Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller together but it’s the music that’s keeping them off the sets — for now anyways.
After first meeting each other while filming the Nickelodeon show Gigantic four years ago, the actors turned their on-screen BFF status into a real friendship, eventually forming the pop-rap duo MKTO (their initials). The band debuted their first single, “Thank You,” in 2013, which found international success as it entered the top ten charts in Australia and New Zealand.
Tony and Malcolm (who you may recognize as Walt from Lost) have even hit the road in support of The X-Factor’s Emblem3 twice: during last summer’s tour and their current #BandLife tour.
During the boys’ quick visit to Toronto last month, ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos brings MKTO down memory lane in this episode of Way Back When. Malcolm and Tony reminisce on their first acting jobs, the mix tapes (or CDs) they would make and watching Boy Meets World. So who had a big crush on Cory Matthews’ beau, Topanga Lawrence? You have to hit play to find out!
