A new film that opened this weekend across the country stars a 12–year old from right here in Rhode Island.

ABC6 news caught up with C.J. Adams and his family, Sunday, before they had some breakfast in North Kingstown.

Adams is starring in the new Disney film "The Odd Life of Timothy Green." This is his first lead role, but if he has things his way it won't be his last.

"Yeah, I'm definitely going to keep with the whole movie thing and there's many parts out there that me and my family, we're debating whether we should try out, or if we should do it, but most of the scripts are pretty good, so you might see me in a couple other roles," said Adams.

He'll continue to live here in Rhode Island. His parents said it'll give him a chance to enjoy life as a normal kid, far from the glitz and glam of Hollywood.
