Rajiv Surendra, the author of “The Elephants In My Backyard: A Memoir,” is best known for his portrayal of Kevin G in the Tina Fey-written “Mean Girls.” He recounts his famous role, how he once ran away from home and became a nanny in Munich, starting a business in New York, and what else he’s up to these days.
“Oh please. It’s called ‘Mean Girls’ and it’s starring Lindsay Lohan. It’s going straight to DVD.”.
I’m Rajiv Surendra and many of you probably know me as Kevin G. the rapping mathlete from “Mean Girls.”
I had no idea that was going to become one of the iconic moments of “Mean Girls.” This two-minute ridiculous rap.
“‘Cuz the next time you see her, she be like,’Ohhh! Kevin G!'”. “Mean Girls” was a lot of fun to shoot because no one on set was a big star.
She had worked on some pretty big movies and she was like, “Oh please. It’s called ‘Mean Girls’ and it’s starring Lindsay Lohan. It’s going straight to DVD.” Then “Mean Girls” came out and it became this big thing and I was shocked.
On the set of “Mean Girls,” the cameraman had read a book and he came up to me one day and was like,”You’re the lead character in this book I just finished.”
