Author Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" children's series has sold millions of copies and spawned a hit feature film. The sequel, "Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules", continues the story of seventh grader Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon). This time around, Greg's parents (Steve Zahn and Rachael Harris) are forcing him to spend more time with his slacker older brother, Rodrick (Devon Bostick). The Heffley brothers are magnets for trouble, taking along poor Rowley (Robert Capron) on their crazy adventures.
I had the pleasure of doing the interviews for the first film, so it was interesting to see the kids one year later. The good news is that success hasn't gone to their heads and they're still as mischievious as ever. They've settled into their characters. The sequel flows well, is very funny, and wholesome entertainment for the entire family. Robert Capron steals the show again as the hapless Rowley. I laughed myself into the ground during their 'youtube' skit. Check out our interviews below with Zachary Gordon, Devon Bostick, Robert Capron, and author Jeff Kinney.
