Vidcon 2012: NMR Interviews Cast of Leap Year [VIDEO]

After the Michael Buckley-moderated “Leap Year” panel, I caught up with actors and “Leap Year” co-creators Wilson Cleveland and Yuri Baranovsky along with Daniela DiIorio, who plays Olivia Reddox on the show. Now on its second season, “Leap Year” has doubled in length and become a runaway success on Hulu and YouTube.
