Although Wizards of Waverly Place may be ending in early 2012, Jake T. Austin is keeping busy through the New Year. In just a few short weeks, you will be able to see him in the much anticipated New Year’s Eve movie where he will star alongside the star-studded cast that include Zac Efron, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin. In fact, in keeping with the holiday spirit, Jake will host for the KISS FM’S Jingle Ball pre-show =on December 3rd which happens to also be his 17th bday!
Another fun project to look forward to for the star in 2013? He will take on the title role of Huckleberry Finn in Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn.
Jake recently sat down with Papermag and talked about a bunch of his upcoming projects. Here are some of the highlights where he talks about his Disney Channel show and the upcoming Huckleberry Finn film:
You’ve spent years on Wizards of Waverly Place — what are you going to miss the most?
The cast and crew. Those people became like an extended family to me.
Any Selena Gomez pranks on set?
Sometimes Selena and I mess up our lines and, like family, we’ll always give each other a hard time when that happens. One time on set we played one of Selena’s songs right after she finished a scene just to embarrass her.
What do you most have in common with Huck?
Huck and I both are adventurers and we both like to be outside, we’re always looking for something new to experience.
