Remember Jonathan Lipnicki, that cute little kid from Stuart Little, with spiky blonde hair and round glasses? You know who I'm talking about, he starred in many of our old-school movie favorites, including Jerry Maguire. Dr DoLittle and Like Mike. He is the kid who made me want a rodent for a sibling, and that my friend, requires talent!
Skip ahead a few good years, and he's kept the same charming smile, lost the glasses, and packed on some muscle. His talent for acting is still keeping him as busy as ever, with various new releases this year, but in his free time he's having epic adventures with us. Yup, you read that right.

As far as celebrities go, Lipnicki is far from what you would expect. Saying he's “down-to-earth” would be an understatement. He was extremely personable, fun, outgoing, and definitel
