About “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys. The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig—not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure—and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.

GREG HEFFLEY:
Seeking a bright, precocious, and appealing young actor to play age 10 – 12 for the lead role of Greg Heffley in the film version of the New York Times #1 bestseller, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul”. Actor must be able to handle dialogue and have a flair for ironic comedy – imagine Larry David in middle school…LEAD

ROWLEY JEFFERSON:
Seeking a boy 10 – 12, broader and heftier than Greg, with a heartbreakingly open, honest, sweet face.
