Selena’s co-star tells HollywoodLife.com what he learned from his on-screen sis — and why they’re reunited for another ‘Wizards’ movie!
With the Wizards Of Waverly Place reunion movie airing in just a few weeks, fans will have to prepare to say goodbye to the Russo family all over again — something Selena Gomez‘s on-screen little brother, Jake T. Austin, is all-too-familiar with. “Selena was very cool, definitely going to miss her,” Jake told HollywoodLife.com on Feb. 7 at Teen Vogue and Aeropostale’s celebration of Chloë Grace Moretz‘s Sweet 16 in NYC.
“I learned a lot from her about the branding and technical sides of the business,” he explained. “I’ll definitely miss Selena.”
At least fans will get one more chance to watch Jake and Selena’s characters in action when The Wizards Return: Alex Vs. Alex premieres March 15 on Disney Channel. The movie serves as a reunion for the cast — the series aired its final episode in Jan. 2012 — as Selena’s character, Alex, must battle an evil version of herself atop the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
“It’s really about Disney just continuing the show,” Jake said. “They really want to keep it going.”
But don’t worry about Jake being out of work after Wizards; he’ll already be back on your TV this summer when his Jennifer Lopez-produced drama, The Fosters, premieres on ABC Family!
