Kyle Massey, That’s So Raven star appeared on Christy Carlson Romano‘s YouTube channel. 

In the video Kyle Massey babbled out about his Even Stevens venture. He said that he was supposed to be on that show. He didn’t get the role, and hence he got a part for That’s So Raven. Kyle adds that no one knew the fact about him almost being as the Beans.

Bernard “Beans” Aranguren happens to be the irritating neighbour of the family. Steven Anthony Lawrence instead played the role.

Beans remained as a recurring character in the series. Steven Lawrence played as the neighbour very enjoyably.
