Ever wonder how child actors get their start?

We talked to Joshua Rush from Parental Guidance about just that.

Joshua's mom is a corporate video producer, "She put me in her videos and she noticed I was a real ham," Joshua tells us. Mothers do know best!

Joshua plays middle grandchild Turner. "He's a really great kid," Joshua says. "But he has a stutter and he's sort of hidden behind his stutter."

Turner and Joshua may have more in common than most actors and their characters. "[Turner] was bullied and so was I," he explains and shares some pretty amazing insight, considering he's only 11 years old. "You're a great person inside. That bully is probably jealous of you."

Joshua gave us a big hint about his favorite scene to film. "Our grandfather (played by Billy Crystal) leaves us in a room with a huge ice cream cake," he says.

You don't have to leave the rest to your imagination. Hit the clip above to find out the fate of that cake!
