Fans of comedy are in for a real treat as they experience the talent of actor Matt Shively. He is currently starring in the first season of “The Real O’Neals,” which recently premiered to an outstanding 6.3 million viewers. Matt stars as ‘Jimmy O’Neal’ alongside Martha Plimpton and Jay R. Fergsuon, who play his parents on the new ABC comedy. The series will chronicle the lives of a close-knit Chicago family with Catholic roots, whose secrets will reveal their real lives. The family is in for a reality check after they come clean to each other—with Shively’s character revealing his own secret.  Matt also finished filming “Summer of 8,” which premiered March 8th. Shively plays “Oscar” in the coming of age story where eight close friends soak up their last day of summer together on the beach before parting ways for college. This year Matt has also guest starred on “Resident Advisors” and NBC’s “Aquarius” starring David Duchovny.

Here is my interview with Matt! We talk about “The Real O’Neals,” acting, and what he learned from David Duchovny.
