Hear from Zachary Gordon, the real-life Wimpy Kid

Zachary Gordon steps onto the big screen this month as Greg Heffley, the not-so-tough main character in “Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” based on the best-selling books by Jeff Kinney. An unabashed fan of the Wimpy Kid books, Zachary considers Greg his dream role. That doesn’t mean working on the film was easy.

Boys’ Life caught up with Zachary last September on the Wimpy Kid set in Vancouver, B.C. See Zachary’s own diary (illustrated Wimpy Kid-style by Jeff Kinney) in the April 2010 issue of BL, and listen to exclusive excerpts by clicking on the audio players below.

    I read all the books and loved them. I even have read the “Diary of a wimpy kid movie diary”. I saw the movie on March 24th and it is OK. They show stuff in the comercials that is not in the movie, which was disapointing when they were not there.
