Freddie Prinze Jr. Retires From Teen Flicks
Hollywood heart-throb Freddie Prinze Jr. is retiring - but only from the teen roles that made him a star. The 24-year-old I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) star has gained a reputation for playing lovestruck teens in films like She's All That (1999) and Down to You (2000). But Prinze says he wanted to make a trilogy of teen flicks because he missed out on watching the teen movies of his generation. He explains, "These were three movies that I wanted to make - Boys and Girls (2000), Down to You (2000) and She's All That (1999). When I made She's All That (1999), I said I wanted to make these three movies for a generation. I wanted them to have a video library of movies they can relate to. It was kind of a goal of mine because I wanted that generation to have something I didn't. And now I'm finished with those. I've already made a couple of different kinds of movies and I'm very happy with them." Freddie next gets to play an adult in Head Over Heels (2001) - in which he's a 27-year-old businessman - and Summer Catch (2000), where he plays a 25-year-old aspiring baseball pitcher.
