Last week I called Lucas Till and we chatted about his new movie The Spy Next Door, which came out Friday. It sounds really funny!
In the movie, Lucas plays a Russian spy who goes up against a CIA agent (played by the legendary Jackie Chan). The CIA agent is on a mission to find his girlfriend's kids, but the Russians try to stop him from finding them. Lucas had to learn martial arts for the movie, but it didn't come easy.
"You have to throw your pride out the window," Lucas says about learning how to fight. "A couple of times I was told I punch like a girl by Jackie's stunt team." OMG. That's so embarrassing.
This is definitely a different role from the love interest Lucas played in Hannah Montana, but Lucas says he likes acting in action movies and hopes to star in more.
So, what do you think? Are you going to check Lucas out in The Spy Next Door?
