The film which starred Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen was a critical success, earning an excellent 85% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. He made the debut in 2017 and in the same year, starred in the biggest controversy of his career thus far. He was cast as the replacement actor for Devon Bostick to play the character, Rodrick Heffley in the 2017 installment of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film series.

Fans of the franchise took to social media to protest the casting, with many using the hashtag, #NotMyRodrick. Despite the widespread dislike of his casting, major players involved in the film process came to his defense, offering public support, including the writer of the book which spurred the film franchise, Jeff Kinney. Nevertheless, while the support ensured that he is set to continue to appear in the role in possible future iterations, it couldn’t keep the 2017 film, Diary of a Wimpy Kid – The Long Haul from being the lowest earning film in the box office of the series. The film earned a total of $40.1 million, $37 million less than its predecessor.
