Up and coming 13- year old actor Ed Oxenbould stars in the big screen adaptation of the cherished children's book "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day." Oxenbould, a native Australian won the lead role over hundreds of teen actors. His co-stars are Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner, who play his parents. The movie expands Alexander's bad day from the book into an even bigger disaster that will either make or break his family.  During a visit to the set when the film was shooting, Oxenbould told a group of journalists, "they've added a whole other day where everything goes wrong except for him. I think he's just an average kid. He's not too popular. He's not really non-popular, but he's just average. He's got a couple of friends. His family just doesn't care about it. Then, in the end, there's a nice ending. I really like this party."  I spoke with the charismatic young actor during a recent stop at the Toronto International Film Festival where he was talking up his film, Paper Planes but of course we had to touch on his role in, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
