At the young age of 11, Jet Jurgensmeyer is living the dream. A star on both Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, Jet’s resume also boasts working with the likes of Clint Eastwood (director) on the Oscar-nominated film American Sniper.
It seems like there’s nothing stopping Jet as he was just announced to be taking on the role of Stinky Peterson in the Nickelodeon reboot movie Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie! If you can’t wait until 2017 for that, you’ll be able to see Jet as Bobby Anderson in the highly-anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie Adventures in Babysitting.
Adventures in Babysitting follows two rival babysitters Jenny and Lola who team up to find one of their kids who has run away.
Jet sums up his reaction to receiving the role as yelling and screaming. “I wanted to get the part so bad,” he confesses. “I was like, ‘I have to get it, I love this part!’ When I got the call, I was actually sitting on a barstool type seat at my house. As soon as they said, ‘Well, you better start packing your bags for Canada,’ I literally jumped out of my seat and started dancing and yelling.” The excitement hasn’t worn off at all for Jet as it’s still so evident in his voice while he talks. “It’s one of the best things. Here I am, a year later, and still talking about it, talking about what fun I had. It was the best time; everyone was so nice.”
He can’t help but reiterate, “It is the best.” Click here to read more….
