Matthew Lillard talks directorial debut Fat Kid Rules the World

Scooby-Doo actor Matthew Lillard has swapped being on the big screen for being behind the camera with his directorial debut Fat Kid Rules the World. Matthew has spoken about the joy he gets from directing which he developed in his younger years.
 
 
Lillard told Collider, “I think it’s who I am, as a person, and it’s who I am, as an actor. It’s who I’ve always been, as an actor. When I was in high school, I was the guy directing plays after class. I started my first theater company at 19, and my second theater company at 21.”
 
He continued, “I’ve always been a guy who doesn’t do well with the passive nature of being an actor. By definition, you’re waiting for somebody to say yes to you, and that’s the single worst thing that I have to suffer through. I’ve been trying to get a movie made.”
 
 
Matthew went on to say, “I optioned the book 10 years ago, and I’ve been trying to make it, ever since. And I’ve been trying to direct, ever since. I’ve been on location scouts, and I’ve done casting for other movies that just haven’t come through. This was the first one that came to fruition.”
 
The Matthew Lillard directed movie Fat Kid Rules the World centres around a dropout who comes to the aid of a suicidal chubby kid by making him the drummer in his new upstart punk-rock band.
