How is Gaines different from Moses? The actor dished:

I think I’m a smart person but I feel Moses is way smarter than me. He’s put together, while I’m flustered and he’s more focused and organized than I am. It’s fun playing him and I’m really excited to see where his storyline goes.

James has been a big help to Gaines in real life. Gaines said:

He has been the best. As soon as I got there, he didn’t try to be my mentor, he just wanted to be my friend. He showed me where everything was and where to get food and who to talk to for what I need. He also helped me with my lines and helped me to get better. I’m really grateful for him.
