We had the pleasure of interviewing Jack Griffo. Jack will be seen in the “Jessie” episode “Somebunny’s in Trouble” that premieres on Disney Channel this Friday (June 21, 2013).
Take a peek:
Dis411: Tell us a little bit about yourself. How did you get started into acting?
Jack: Aside from acting, I like playing guitar and I love sports. I also like watching my favorite TV shows, going to see movies, and hanging out with my family playing cards and games. I have a risky streak but no time for it lately! I would love to bungee jump or anything else dangerous-ish.
I grew up in Florida doing community theater and moved to Los Angeles two and a half years ago to pursue this crazy dream of becoming an actor.
Dis411: What do you like most about acting?
Jack: I like getting to be someone I’m not! I hope to someday play a lot of very different kinds of roles, really push myself.
Dis411: Can you tell us about your role for the new “Jessie” episode “Somebunny’s in Trouble.”
Jack: I play Brett Somers, the school jock, who loves football. He meets Emma in the park and becomes her love interest in the episode.
Dis411: What was it like working with the Peyton List and the rest of the “Jessie” cast?
Jack: It was awesome. Peyton and the gang were fun to hang with and super nice to me! At the end of the week I didn’t want to leave!
Dis411: Any fun stories that you can share with our readers about working on this new episode?
Jack: The football tackling of Peyton List was pretty epic. I got to tackle her repeatedly while we were rehearsing and when we were shooting and enjoyed it very much. It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it…
Dis411: You have worked on both Nickelodeon shows and Disney series’. Which project and role has been your favorite so far?
Jack: Well, “The Thundermans” is my favorite of all since I will get to go back every week!!
Dis411: We have read that you are starring in a Nickelodeon comedy called “The Thundermans.” Could you share information with our readers about this role.
Jack: It’s still developing since we are just getting started, but I play ‘Max Thunderman’, an aspiring super villain with awesome powers and a secret lair.
Dis411: What kinds of things do you enjoy doing in your time away from acting?
Jack: Free time became very important when I suddenly had very little! When I can I like playing basketball, snowboarding, music and hanging out with my friends.
Dis411: Lastly, can you share your social media information with us – Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Thanks again to Jack for chatting with us, and we wish him the best!
