Jack Griffo Almost Wasn't Part of 'The Thundermans' At All

We all know Jack Griffo as Max Thunderman, the superhero who once wanted to be a supervillain, on Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans.

As it turns out though, Max Thunderman didn’t even exist before a total rewrite happened. Jack revealed to Prune mag that after the network passed on another pilot he was in, the opportunity for The Thundermans came his way.

“The next year, they called my reps about The Thundermans. I knew about the show, because I knew Kira (Kosarin),” he shared. “It was already a pilot, and there wasn’t a role for me, but they explained that they had changed the show a bit.”

Jack adds, “It was now about twins instead of just a girl. I went in and read for the show, and the rest is history from there.”

And that’s how Maximus Octavius Thunderman was born.
