Next Gen 2015: What Is Your Worst Habit on Set?
Ronda Rousey claims she "blinks too much" and Jessie T. Usher calls craft services "evil."
As part of THR's look at Hollywood's Next Gen 2015, we asked the breakout stars of tomorrow about their worst habits on set.
Once J.J. bet me that I couldn't go a full day without singing — and I almost finished the day and I started singing again! When I feel comfortable, I just like to sing and hum, and I don't even know I'm doing it. But sometimes someone will come over to me like, "I love that song you were singing, but it's distracting."

Eating junk food. I think for most people that's the one. Craft services is evil, man. You've got to watch out. Luckily I like to exercise, so nobody ever notices. I live at craft services with cookies and Nutter Butters and chips and whatever stuff they just bring out. I'm addicted!
Resorting to sugar on long days. It's not good for my teeth, and it doesn't really work in giving me energy. You do it out of desperation.
Blinking too much.
I drink too much tea on set. I drink about eight cups and there's only so much caffeine that a 19 year old boy should take in, you know?
I eat a lot. I’m a big sandwich dude. Turkey, mayonnaise, mustard, cheese, yes. I love craft services.
They call me "the disappearing act." I can be nowhere to be found sometimes. It's just because I like quiet time, and I'll go find the most obscure place on set, a basement or a janitorial room. I'm also notoriously a prankster on set. I usually have everybody convinced that their character is being killed off. You just tell another actor that a third party's character is dying, and you'd be surprised at how quickly that gets around. But then they find out that they're dying, and I tell them I convinced the executive producer to make sure that their character lives on. Then I become the hero.
