‘Shazam!’ kids name their fave movies
In a one-minute video from entertainment website Collider, teen “Shazam!” costars Jack Dylan Grazer and Asher Angel were asked to name a total of five favorite movies.
“‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,’” started Angel, who is a 16-year-old singer and cast member of the Disney series “Andi Mack.”
“Oh, that’s good, that’s real good,” responded 15-year-old Grazer, who played one of the kids in the 2017 horror flick “It.”
Continuing with the list, Grazer added “Goodfellas.”
When it was his turn, Angel drew a blank and said, “This is so hard.”
“It shouldn’t be,” said his costar, who then added the film, “Stand By Me.”
“Oh, thanks for that. Um, ‘The Holiday,’” Angel said, referring to the 2006 rom-com starring Jude Law.
“‘The Holiday’? With Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon? Oh, that’s … ‘Four Christmases’ or something,” quipped Grazer, eliciting a giggle from Angel.
Grazer added another favorite: “‘My Cousin Vinny’ [is] probably one of them.”
An off-cam interviewer asked, “Can you do a [Joe] Pesci [impression]?
Grazer asked back, “Without cursing?”
What followed was a profanity-filled monologue, mostly bleeped out, while Grazer pretended to slap around Angel, who was in stitches the whole time.
“It’s impossible to do Pesci without cursing,” concluded the giddy Grazer.
The teens costar in the DC film with Zachary Levi, who plays Angel’s grown-up superhero version. “Shazam!” is a certified hit in the United States and in various countries, prompting Angel to tweet, “We did it! @ShazamMovie [is No. 1]. Thank you to everyone for the support and love.” —OLIVER PULUMBARIT
