We sat down this week with Wizards of Waverly Place's Jake T. Austin to chat about his new movie New Year's Eve, which also stars Zac Efron and Abigail Breslin. Jake spilled, "The film's a love story that takes place on New Year's Eve and into New Year's. I play Seth, who's a native New Yorker. [His] love interest is Abigail['s character Hailey]." Filming in New York was great for Jake, who's from the city. He confessed his favorite part was "getting to have my family on set and a lot of my friends from here. My cousin was an extra in the film!" He also revealed another family connection, telling us, "In the film, I kiss Abigail Breslin...in a restaurant that my Mom used to work in!" We can't wait to see how Seth and Hailey get together. Catch New Year's Eve in theaters Friday, December 9th, and watch Jake's message to you below!
