Australian actor Ed Oxenbould joins Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner in the adaptation of the 1972 book.
Disney has cast relative newcomer Ed Oxenbould to play the title role in Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Disney’s adaptation of the popular kids book.
Oxenbould joins Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner in the production which will be directed by Miguel Arteta.
A classic since it was published in 1972, Bad Day was written by Judith Viorst and centers on a boy (Oxenbould) who has a very horrible day and finds out that other people can have them too.
In the script, written by Lisa Cholodenko and Rob Lieber, the boy has a terrible day and wishes his family experienced his suffering, which they later do.
Oxenbould, who appeared in a Australian TV series titled Puberty Blues, is managed in the U.S. by Dan Spilo and Laura Hersh at Industry Entertainment and in Australia by Sophie Jermyn at Sophie Jermyn Management.
