We continue our week-long feature of Paramount’s Spiderwick Chronicles, a film that has twice the Freddie Highmore for the same price. As in, Highmore plays two parts. He is both Jared and Simon Grace, two twins who are as different as they are the same. Simon is the nerdy pasifist and Jared is the angry, rebellious youth yearning to be away from his recently single mother and his two siblings. To say the least, Highmore gives one heck of a performance. Check out a little more of the little dude in the three clips below.
You will also get your first look (in the second and third clips) at Nick Nolte in the film — and the monster that looks like Nick Nolte. I had to be restrained every time the monster was shown on screen because I kept laughing out loud and saying, “The monster looks like Nick Nolte, that is awesome!” What can I say, I am a child…
The Spiderwick Chronicles hits theaters this Thursday, February 14.
