In White Frog, a new coming-of-age-movie opening today in select cities, Glee's Harry Shum, Jr. plays Chaz Young, the older brother of Nick (Twilight Saga: Eclipse star Booboo Stewart), a boy who suffers from Asperger's syndrome. The disorder makes it difficult for him to communicate with others, so Chaz is the only person who really connects with his brother.
"I was really fortunate to be able to play this role," Harry exclusively tells us. "I filmed this while shooting Glee. Obviously, without the singing and dancing, it's not as light of a role as Mike Chang, who's a lot happier, even though he's dealing with a lot of issues on the show."
When a tragedy suddenly strikes the family, Chaz's friend Randy (Wizards of Waverly Place star Gregg Sulkin) steps in to help Nick cope.
"Basically from the outside, everything seems perfect, but Randy is fighting an internal battle, which I can't give away," Gregg explains. "As the movie continues, you get to see Randy and Chaz's relationship in more detail, and what kind of relationship it was. I couldn't relate to the situation at all, so it was a great opportunity for me to test my acting skills and dig my teeth into something."
Speaking of teeth, we were curious what it was like having so many werewolves on set. (Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey also has a role in the movie!)
"There was no howling," Gregg says. "But we all got along great. The werewolves kind of stuck together!"
