The greater difficulty for Judge Reinhold
in taking on the challenge of Vice Versa
(1988), was to portray eleven year-old Charlie, and for that he needed a refresher course on what it's like to be an eleven year-old kid. His co-star, Fred Savage
, proved to be the best teacher he could have asked for. Reinhold said: "I wanted to try to portray a kid of exactly this age, and Fred helped me a lot in that respect. He showed me what's important for kids. The basic concerns are the same as they were when I was growing up, but they have a lot more of a hi-tech sensibility." To get in the right frame of mind, he would walk around schools and try to remember what it was like to be a child. Reinhold added: "Kids never give conflicting signals. If they don't like you, you can tell right away. They don't cover it up. Also, they have such a freshness about them, an energy and a very clear attitude - everything's either really great or it's a drag. They're demonstrative". See more
