Comedian who plays a boy-next-door turns 16, goes on TV
Comedian John Hodgman, who played a boy in “Dumb and Dumber” and later “Saving Private Ryan,” is turning 16 and turning on his TV.
Hodgman is now the youngest actor to ever have his own daytime TV show.
He will be debuting his new series on Canada’s TLC channel in September.
“I’m just so happy to be able to turn 16 and start my own show and be able share it with the world,” Hodgman said in an interview.
“The only thing I think that I would miss out on is just having that big, big smile on my face.”
The show, called “My Name Is John Hodgmen,” will take viewers on a journey into the world of comedy.
Hodgmen said he was nervous about the show and was very nervous about not having enough of a voice.
“My parents were very protective of me and I didn’t want to be known as a child who’s shy and not liked by people,” Hodgmen told CBC News.
“They were very proud of me.
But I guess it’s just the way it is.
I feel really lucky to have the opportunity to be on a show that’s a lot of fun and has a lot more of a heart than I did growing up.”
Hodgman’s first show was on TLC in 2012, and was a hit with audiences.
He was cast in a role of a young boy named John.
Hodgmans first TV role was on “Dude, Where’s My Car?” in 2016.
In that episode, Hodgman plays a friend of a friend who lives in the same house.
“When I saw that episode on Tl, I was really excited,” Hodgmans said.
“You know, I got to be a little bit like, ‘I’m in the house!'”
Hodgman went on to play the character of James in “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “The Simpsons.”
He was the first to be cast in an animated series, “Boys Don’t Cry,” which debuted in 2017.
Hodgmann says he learned so much from his experience on “The Sopranos” and that he is so excited to start his own show.
“It’s such a privilege to have a voice and to have that voice be so much like me,” Hodgmann said.
Hodgeman said he hopes to continue to do TV for a while longer and will not stop until he is the youngest to have his show.
