Wimpy Week: Team Rowley!
In our other video previews of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie, the focus was on Greg Heffley, the main character and proverbial “wimpy kid.” But I thought I would focus today’s blog post on MY favorite character, Rowley. Sweet, lovable, happy-go-lucky Rowley is a totally loyal friend to Greg while Greg is just obsessed with popularity, and um. . . not so likable all the time. Can you imagine a better friend than Rowley? And the actor who plays him — Robert Capron — is absolutely perfect! Check out this video clip of the Mother & Son Dance where Rowley and his mom do this dance routine that can only be described as Jaw-Droppingly Awesome! And PS, this was one of Robert’s favorite scenes to shoot because he got to dance with his real mom!
Yes, that is his REAL mom! Did your jaw drop while watching this? I know mine did. Now don’t get me wrong, I think Zach Gordon is awesome too. After meeting him at the live chat on Tuesday, I can tell you for sure that he is totally sweet and nothing like his wimpy (sometimes even jerky) character, Greg. And he even told me that he and Robert are really good friends now since they met making this movie.
Are you psyched to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid?
