Jimmy Tatro On Filming "Grown Ups 2" and His Transition From YouTube To The Big Screen

Jimmy Tatro On Filming "Grown Ups 2" and His Transition From YouTube To The Big Screen

  • After we chatted with Spoken Reasons last week about his role in "The Heat" with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, Jimmy Tatro is just the latest YouTuber to stop by What's Trending and talk about his transition from your computer screen to the big screen.

    While we had him in the hot seat, Tatro took questions about getting started on YouTube with "Life According To Jimmy," hair style tips, meeting Adam Sandler and Taylor Lautner, and much more!

    "It was a ton of fun," he says of filming the movie. "It was just a great experience. It was completely new for me because I've just been doing YouTube videos." He adds, "It was great to meet all the 'Happy Madison' guys. They're all awesome, a ton of fun. Adam Sandler's like the nicest guy ever."

    However, in the film, he plays Sandler's enemy. "We're the frat boys," Tatro says. "It's me and Taylor Lautner's posse. We've got a little squad there. We're basically rivaling Adam Sandler. He's back in our home town, him and his crew, so we're very territorial."

    When asked about he got his start on YouTube, Tatro says, "I started doing videos when I was like 10, doing skate videos. That was back when was convinced I was going to be a pro skater." Once he realized that people were actually making money in the space, he began adding his own content to the social video site. "I've always wanted to be on TV and movies and saw it as a good starting block to do your own thing and not really have to take the traditional 'go on auditions' route."

    Jimmy also challenged Shira to a messy game of frat boy peer pong. Spoiler: Tatro may have had more experience with this.
