Despite all the famous character actor faces in The Odd Life of Timothy Green (Jennifer Garner, Joel Edgerton, Diane Wiest, M. Emmet Walsh, David Morse, Common…), the true star of the film is, perhaps not surprisingly, the titular twelve-year-old boy himself.  CJ Adams has the more than herculean task of not only acting opposite some great actors but also of carrying the very film.  The entire picture hinges around his performance – and one’s willingness to accept that this precocious kid can change the lives of all he interacts with, let alone the fact that the kid’s got leaves growing out of his ankles.

In the following interview, CJ Adams discusses the process of getting the starring role, what it was like to work alongside such famous faces, and how he interprets who the mysterious Timothy Green really is.  For the full interview, hit the jump.

And If you missed them, here are my interviews with director Peter Hedges, Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner.
