Are you a Good Luck Charlie fan? I am! Jason Dolley, who is 22 in real life, plays PJ Duncan on the show. We interviewed him before along with Bradley Steven Perry who plays Gabe, but I’m super-psyched that we got to catch up again with Jason. He talked to us about his favorite book, his character PJ, and the Muppets. And in case you missed it, read our interview with Bridgit Mendler (who plays his sister, Teddy).
Q: What is your favorite book of all time?
Jason: I have a special place in my heart for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe [by C. S. Lewis].
Q: What do you want most in the world?
Jason: I don’t even think I know! Literally, that is the broadest and most interesting interview question I’ve ever been asked, and I know that because I don’t know how to answer that. But I love that you asked!
Q: What do you think is the most important issue for kids your age?
Jason: The biggest thing I see is substance abuse. I know a lot of people that have been affected by that. So that’s an issue.
Q: What’s up with your character for this season?
Jason: He is going to cooking school this year. He’s a really gifted cook, but I think he is struggling a little more than he expected, which is good, as he is learning well under pressure! His chef is super-hard on him, so that progress for him is good.
Q: You had an episode with the Muppets. How was working with the Muppets?
Jason: I was not there that week and I was so sad that I missed it. I worked with them once before on a Disney Channel special a while ago, so I was super bummed I couldn’t be there. They are awesome. I was super-glad that they were on our show!
