TWIST: What's something you love most about your character Greg Heffley, and what inspires you about Greg?
JD: We all know that Greg is considered lazy, sarcastic, narcissistic and sometimes a bully. Even with all these not so nice traits, Greg truly does have a kind side, but he doesn't show it often.
TWIST: What's your funniest fan experience?
JD: All of my fan experiences have been pretty typical: "Hi are you Jason Drucker?" Yes, I am! "Can I get a picture or an autograph...?" However, when I was on set, an extra who WAS NOT a fan of mine, looked at me straight in the eyes, and pushed me in the ball-pit and then casually walked away. Talk about interesting!
TWIST: What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
JD: Be yourself, don't let anyone or anything change who you are.
TWIST: What's the greatest lesson you've learned from your parents?
JD: Never stop chasing your dreams no matter what, and treat people the way you would like to be treated.
