The more the merrier – especially when it comes to family laughs! Disney’s remake of the classic comedy “Cheaper by the Dozen” recently hit streaming services, and today we have actor Leo Abelo Perry, who stars as Luca Baker in the film, which also features the acting talents of Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff.

The nine-year-old actor caught up with Good Morning H-Town to talk about his love for acting (and basketball), life on the film’s set and more!

About the film:

The Bakers are a blended family that began with Paul Baker and his wife Kate who together had daughters Ella and Harley and their adopted son Haresh after their friends died in a car accident. Kate eventually divorced Paul, but they remained friends with Kate acting as an occasional, though slightly inattentive, babysitter. Zoey married football player Dominic “Dom” Clayton and had daughter Deja and son DJ. Due to Dom’s celebrity life, Zoey divorced him and took custody of the kids. Paul met Zoey after she visited his small restaurant and suggested that he make the entire menu breakfast themed all day. The two eventually got married, expanded the restaurant, renamed it Baker’s Breakfast and had two sets of twins: Luca and Luna, and Bronx and Bailey.
