Matthew Lillard is an actor that everyone should be familiar with. He's played diverse characters in several different types of movies; from horror films like Scream and Thirteen Ghosts to comedies such as Senseless and She's All That and family fare like the Scooby-Doo movies and television show. His newest adventure in the movie industry is as the director of his first independent feature film - an adaptation of the young adult novel Fat Kid Rules the World. I had the opportunity to speak with Lillard about bringing the young adult novel to life onscreen.

Give us a little background on Fat Kid Rules the World and how it came about.

The movie is based on a young adult book by a woman named K. L. Going. I read the book 10 years ago and fell in love with it. It's about a kid that's on the outside looking in - an outcast. »
