That’s the kid. I liked the show and I’m glad he got a decent acting career out of it before he lost the ‘look’ they needed for that type of thing.
In the show itself, I actually liked Dewey the best. Never quite caught a break early on, but as the show progressed, you could see that he was smarter than everybody else in his house and was quietly succeeding where the rest were failing miserably.
I agree. He was too smug in the movies. In the show, he seemed genuinely full of angst. It was the angst that was appealing, although the movies emphasized the cockiness.of his hollywood persona.
