Jun 30, 2011

By: Lynn Barker

“Wimpy Kid” star Zach tells Kidzworld about school, embarrassing moments and Rodrick Rules”

We got some cool Q and A with cute, 13-year-old Zachary Gordon, star (as Greg) of Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules now out on Blu-Ray and DVD for your summer home viewing pleasure.

Kidzworld: Do you have any brothers? If so, what is your relationship like with them?

  • Zach Gordon: I have 2 older brothers who are somewhat similar to Rodrick.  We mess around a lot, but always have each other’s backs.

Kidzworld: You’ve done a lot of voice/over work for animated films. Which was the most fun voice to do and why?

  • Zach: One of my favorite voiceovers was for a Nick Jr. show called “Bubble Guppies” in which I voiced the role of Gil, the guppy.  It began airing this past February, but I worked on it for 4 years.

Kidzworld: Do you and your big bro in the movie Devon (Bostick) hang out between scenes or off set? Buddies?

  • Zach: Devon and I are like brothers on and off set.  We have lots of fun and love to prank each other.

Kidzworld: Greg’s mom gives him “Mom bucks” as an incentive to behave. Did you or do you get anything like that from your mom or dad?

  • Zach: I don’t get Mom bucks, but I do get computer time.  I love to play on the computer, but have to earn the time as I forget myself when I am on it.

Kidzworld: Are you homeschooled or can you relate to Greg’s struggles to fit into middle school?

  • Zach: I attend a public school when I am not on set, but do not have similar struggles to Greg.

Kidzworld: Can you actually roller skate? I’m an adult and roller rinks were big back in my day. Are they actually back and popular as far as you know?

  • Zach: I learned to roller skate for the movie last summer before we had to film.  I really enjoy it, but it is not as popular these days and there isn’t a rink close to my home.  It closed after they taught me to skate.  Hmmmm???

Kidzworld: Greg is having trouble going up to a girl. Do you have a pick-up line or what do you usually say to attractive girls that you would like to get to know?

  • Zach: I’m not quite there yet.  I’m more focused on sports and getting together with my friends for a good game of basketball.

Kidzworld: If there was a YouTube video of your mom dancing, would you be embarrassed?

  • Zach: Absolutely, I would pretend that I never saw her in my life!

Kidzworld: Have you posted a video on YouTube and, if so, what was it?

  • Zach: I have not posted anything yet, but might in the future.

Kidzworld: Do you and your pals watch scary movies at home? What is the best one so far if you do? I’m sure The Foot wouldn’t scare you.

  • Zach: No, scary movies really freak me out even when I know they are fake.
  • The Footwas really funny, not scary at all.

Kidzworld: If you had to be in a talent show, other than acting, what would you do as your “talent”?

  • Zach: I would break dance.  I LOVE to dance.

 

Kidzworld: Rodrick gives Greg advice. What is the worst advice you ever got?

  • Zach: The early bird gets the worm, because now that I am officially a teenager, I really need my sleep.

Kidzworld: Did you ever have the “I’m at school in my underwear” dream? What would be the most embarrassing moment ever for you?

  • Zach: No, I had the dream that I was on the big screen in my underwear and it really came true!  I don’t really embarrass easily.

Kidzworld: If there is another movie, what do you really hope the writers will create for Greg to do that he hasn’t gotten to yet?

  • Zach: I would love for Greg to be a SUPER HERO!!!

Kidzworld: Why will kids and teens really get into Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules?

  • Zach: Kids who are already in middle school will really relate to the crazy situations that happen and teens will be able to relive their (recent) past.

I love it because it shows a different side of the team when they're not out fighting crime in a silly way.
