Max Schneider has snagged a role in the movie Love & Mercy, about the life of reclusive musician Brian Wilson from the ’60s surfing band The Beach Boys. The 21-year-old will be playing singer/songwriter Van Dyke Parks in the film. Max tweeted:
“So excited to be playing Van Dyke Parks in the movie ‘Love And Mercy’!”
The How To Rock star is known for his clever videos that he makes and stars in along with Victoria Justice. But Max has been acting all his life – he landed his first acting gig when he was barely in kindergarten.
“I did my first show when I was five and I was the King of the Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” he laughs. “The kids theater company, I was the youngest one so there wasn’t a part for me, so they made me the king of the Oompa Loompas. I just fell in love [with performing] from there.”
