Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie ROCKED on Friday night on Disney Channel. It was the most watched DCOM since High School Musical 2!!!
Selena Gomez later tweeted, "I just wanted to thank everyone who watched the Wizards Movie tonight! This movie was something my cast and I were very proud to call ours!"
The movie was definitely action packed. When we talked to Jake T. Austin, he told us there are 350 special effects in the film!
Are there more movies in the works for Jake? Yep! In fact, he's already got another one under his belt. The Perfect Game is the true story of a baseball team from Mexico that makes it to the Little League championship game in the U.S.A. - no release date yet, but Jake stars in the film!
And when we asked him who he'd like to work with in the future. "Leonardo DiCaprio. He's one of my favorites and I'd like to sort of mold my career a little after his." He certainly has the acting chops...Jake can speak English in French Scottish, British , Russian, Australian and Spanish accents.
Jake is reportedly of Polish, Irish, English, Puerto Rican and Argentine decent. We asked him what it was like to film in Puerto Rico for the Wizards movie. "It was a lot of fun. I got to see some amazing sites and learn more about my culture."
