Reba’s son; June’s brother; Lillie Mae’s grandson
Reba’s eldest, Cash was the prince of Music City as the son of one of Country’s biggest stars. Then his mom moved him across the country and all of a sudden Cash is at the bottom of the food chain. Doing everything he can to fit in, Cash is definitely feeling the culture shock.
A Quick Q&A with Justin Prentice
What drew you to playing Cash?
Umm...they hired me. (Laughs) But in all seriousness, Cash is different from most characters we see on TV. While he can be generalized as the “dumb jock,” there are many underlying facets that separate Cash from the stereotype. One thing in particular is his vulnerability. There are many scenes in which the audience gets to see Cash’s true feelings, showing that there is a human underneath the often self-possessed exterior.
Do you have a favorite line from your character?
I can’t say that I really have a favorite quote from Cash. The writers on Malibu Country are fantastic and make sure that every scene is full of comedic excellence, while occasionally implementing an always relatable heartfelt moment.
What's your favorite thing to do in California?
Well I’m pretty partial to acting.
Who's your favorite singer?
(Laughing) I think I’m contractually obligated to say Reba McEntire! Just kidding. I’m still going to say Reba though. That woman can sing!
Justin Prentice is a Nashville native who grew up with a love for music and sports and always knew that he really wanted to be an actor. “Acting” on this instinct, he decided to give community theater a shot.
