Jake T Austin goes retro in this new shot from Paper Mag.
The 16-year-old is one of the many stars in the upcoming flick New Year’s Eve but who was he most excited to meet? He tells Paper Mag, “Robert De Niro and Jon Bon Jovi are both people I was really excited to meet. I’m also a huge fan of Garry Marshall — he’s someone who’s created a lot of his own content which is something I aspire to do.”
Jake has also been busy working on Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, which co-stars Super 8’s Joel Courtney. “We’ve been filming in Bulgaria, so learning a new culture and getting to experience Eastern Europe while traveling to different parts of the country was really amazing.” Is he anything like his character Huck? “Huck and I both are adventurers and we both like to be outside, we’re always looking for something new to experience,” he explained.
