Little Fires Everywhere's Gavin Lewis Shares His Favorite Book To Movie Adaptations

Little Fires Everywhere's Gavin Lewis Shares His Favorite Book To Movie Adaptations

Gavin Lewis is bringing Moody Richardson to life in Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere!

The 16-year-old actor plays Reese Witherspoon‘s son in the mini-series adaptation from the book of the same name.

Since he’s starring in a book to screen adaptation, we thought it would be fun to find out Gavin‘s top five favorite movies that were books first!

The first three episodes of Little Fires Everywhere are streaming NOW on Hulu.

  • 5. The Shining – Even though Kubrick’s adaptation made a lot of changes from the book, Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of Jack Torrance and the monster he becomes is incredible.
  • 4. Where the Wild Things Are – This was my favorite book when I was little, and my six-year-old self was blown away by seeing Sendak’s monsters come to life.
  • 3. It – The movie did a great job of keeping to the anxiety producing storyline of the book, particularly Bill Skarsgård’s terrifying portrayal of Pennywise.

Check Out An Exclusive First Look at the Set of 'Henry Danger' Spinoff 'Danger Force'

The Danger Force premiere is right around the corner!

To celebrate the upcoming new show, Just Jared Jr is bringing you the behind-the-scenes first look at the classroom set from the Henry Danger spinoff.

In the photos, you can see all the different areas, including the work stations, plus the Man’s Nest as well.

In Danger Force, four kids–Chapa (Havan Flores), Miles (Terrence Little Gardenhigh), Mika (Dana Heath) and Bose (Luca Luhan)–are recruited to attend Swellview Academy for the Gifted (SW.A.G. for short), a school conceived by Captain Man and brought to life by Schwoz, after having been accidentally mutated in the fight to save Swellview.

While there, the kids must learn to harness their frequently troublesome and sometimes uncontrollable superpowers as they begin to fight crime. Despite the dangerous circumstances of their new lives, the superheroes must keep their real identities a secret from both from their families and the villains who are out to destroy them.

The four new superheroes will be introduced in the Henry Danger series finale THIS Saturday (March 21), and Danger Force will premiere NEXT Saturday (March 28) on Nickelodeon!

Megan Stott Earned a Boy Scouts Merit Badge Alongside Her Brothers

Megan Stott Earned a Boy Scouts Merit Badge Alongside Her Brothers

You’re about to see a lot more of Megan Stott!

The 16-year-old actress is one of the stars of the new mini-series Little Fires Everywhere, which premieres on Hulu on Wednesday (March 18).

Megan plays Izzy Richardson in the show, the youngest and most rebellious of the Richardson children.

After consistent personality clashes with her mother and steady bullying at school due to her sexuality, she becomes the primary suspect in the burning down of her family home.

Since she’s an up and coming actress, Just Jared Jr thought it would be fun to get to know Megan with some fun facts!

  • I did competition swim, dance and cheerleading for a few years and I think the team approach to all of those sports help me daily. It also gave me a good work ethic!
  • I love hiking and being outdoors and being able to completely immerse myself in nature.
  • I am certified in rappelling and rock climbing. Which is a funny story: My brothers were in boy scouts and they were working on merit badges in those skills over several weeks. I was a girl and wanted to so as well. However, since I wasn’t a boy scout it wasn’t an option. My mom happened to be the leader so she paid and let me do all the skills for my “merit badge” and gave me a beautiful one she had created for me instead. I still got the certification from the establishment. I believe in gender equality and this experience helped foster that.

Deaf Actress Shaylee Mansfield Shares Why Her 'Bunk'd' Role Is Important For Deaf Representation

Deaf Actress Shaylee Mansfield Shares Why Her 'Bunk'd' Role Is Important For Deaf Representation

Shaylee Mansfield is guest starring on Bunk’d tonight (March 13)!!

The young, deaf actress will play Willow, a young camper whom Gwen suspects may actually be a forest fairy.

Just Jared Jr spoke with Shaylee about her role, and why it’s important for kids to see Deafness and ASL represented on TV.

“So many hearing people are learning American Sign Language (ASL), which is awesome. Unfortunately, some hearing people do use ASL in TV, movies, and social media, which gets more attention. Where did sign language come from? Deaf people, of course!” she told us. “It’s SO important to show authentic, Deaf people on the screen to inspire Deaf children to be themselves.”

Shaylee also shared what it was like working with the cast.

“On my first day of working on set, I was really nervous. What would it be like working with the cast? Will they welcome me?” she said.

“This all faded away as soon as the cast invited me to eat lunch with them. They even asked me what’s the sign for this or that. Oh yes, I met Will‘s adorable dog. Hello, dog lover here! We played Crazy Eights,” Shaylee continued. “All of this made me feel more connected with the cast, which brought my best acting out of me for Bunk’d!”

Raphael Alejandro has scenes with Shaylee and he recently told JJJ that he learned some ASL specifically for her appearance.

“I learned a little bit of ASL on my current show Bunk’d,” he said in his 10 Fun Facts feature. “A girl that is deaf starred in one episode of Season 4 and in my scenes, I acted as her translator.”

Tune in to catch Shaylee on an all new episode of Bunk’d TONIGHT (March 13) at 8pm ET on Disney Channel!

Jessica Marie Garcia Reveals What To Expect In 'On My Block' Season 3

Jessica Marie Garcia is dishing on the upcoming third season of On My Block!

The actress opened up with JJJ about what we can expect from the new season, which premieres TOMORROW (March 11). Watch the trailer here.

“It’s my favorite season! It has so many twists and turns, and then there’s loads of drama that’ll only be drowned out with laughter. It has all of the things and I hope the fans LOVE IT!” she said.

Jessica also revealed what her favorite part about playing Jasmine is.

“I love her vulnerability. That may not be the answer you’d expect with how crazy she can be publicly, but there is so much more to her than the ‘bigger than life’ persona she puts on,” she told us. “She’s got a huge heart that loves hard and it can break even harder.”
