Larry David As a Kid…

…that’s how Jeff Kinney describes Greg, the hero of The Wimpy Kid books. For the movie adaptation, currently being filmed, Kinney tells USA Today, he “pushed for him to be a likable jerk. One of my favorite things is Greg doesn’t learn his lesson all the time.”

The eleven-year-old actor who is playing the Kid has gotten the message, he says Greg “always thinks everything revolves around him. He thinks the world is just about him.”

The movie is scheduled to open April 2, 2010.
