HOUSTON – At just 16-years of age, local actor Nathan Janak has already built an impressive acting resume with comedic roles on Nickelodeon’s ‘All That’ and ‘Drama Club.’
But he’s branching out into feature films with ‘The Prank’, a new flick starring Hollywood legend Rita Moreno.
Janak spoke with Houston Life about his jump to the big screen and shared details ahead of the film’s premiere at SXSW.
‘The Prank’ follows two high school students who play a prank on their physics teacher, Mrs. Wheeler, played by EGOT winner Rita Moreno, falsely accusing her on social media of the murder of a missing student.
Janak plays the role of Phillip Marlow, a “woke” gen-z activist who is dedicated to exposing the injustices of the world.
