Sindy:: Hi Jonathan! Can you tell me a bit about working on Bedtime Stories?


Jonathan:Yeah sure! My name’s Patrick in the movie and I’m a kid who hasn’t seen his Uncle (played by Adam Sandler) since he was a baby. For about half of the movie I think he’s a complete weirdo then finally I start to warm up to him and he starts to tell us bedtime stories that come true in a weird way.


Sindy:: What were some of the weird things that happened?


Jonathan:: Well the dreams come true in weird ways, like it starts raining gumballs because in my mind I’m imagining a truck dumping a bunch of gumballs on my uncle Skeeter’s head. I also mention Abraham Lincoln so then a jogger runs over and drops a penny! (Abraham Lincoln is the president whose face is on the penny).


Sindy:: Are you and Adam Sandler buddies now?


Jonathan:I guess so! We joked around a lot on set—he’s really, really, REALLY funny.


Sindy:: What was it like working with Adam Sandler? Was he funny?


Jonathan:It was good, he was really funny! We played with his dog off and on the set so I had fun with him.


Sindy:: How did you get into acting?


Jonathan:Well, when I was four, I had a yard sale and my neighbor down the street sent this person down and said “You have to check out this kid” so she comes up and my dad’s like “You wanna see some of my son’s videos?” So he showed her and she’s like, “I’m a manager, I’d like to manage your son!”


Sindy:: Awesome! What were the videos of?


Jonathan:Just stuff from when I was in preschool because I did plays like every months.


Sindy:: Do you like doing stage work better than movie work?


Jonathan:: I kinda like play work better.


Sindy:: Yeah? What’s different, what do you like better?


Jonathan:: I just like…it’s more live and everyone’s more warm—like everyone’s friends.


Sindy:: Yeah and you get to see the audience reaction. So are you in school now?


Jonathan:: Yes, I am.


Sindy:: Is it hard to do school with your acting work too?


Jonathan:: Mm, no, not really.


Sindy:: No? You can balance it pretty well?


Jonathan: Yeah because probably right when I get off I start school again. I have a school teacher here (on set). We have to do at least three hours of school a day.


Sindy:: What's your favorite subject?


Jonathan:: Math or science.


Sindy:: What do you do besides acting?


Jonathan:: I play with my dog and I hang out with my friends.


Sindy:: What's your dog's name?


Jonathan:: My dog’s name is Shadow and she’s a cocker spaniel—her ear’s are fluffy!.


Sindy:: Hehe cute! So I heard you’re into hip hop dancing—are you a dancer?


Jonathan:: Yes, I think so!


Sindy:: Did you take classes?


Jonathan:: Actually I took classes with Alyson Stoner but I mostly taught myself to dance.


Sindy:: Do you like hip hop music? Who’s your favorite rapper?


Jonathan:: Yes I like it, but I like their songs more than the singers.


Sindy:: What are you working on now?


Jonathan:: I’m going to be in a movie with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell called Datenight. He’s the biological father but she doesn’t know it and I play his son.


Sindy:: Do you have any advice for other young people who want to start acting?


Jonathan:: Don't overdo it!


Sindy:: Ha, good advice! Thanks, Jonathan.


Jonathan:: Thanks, Kidzworld!
