I'm going to meet with some directors on projects. I'm looking for a really great project. Hopefully a film, but I am looking at a television series or two.

I didn't really do anything for my birthday, I saw a few friends but basically hung out with my family. I got an Xbox360, some games, dvds and cds.
Question from Kate9
Hey Jeremy, I met you in Portland while you were filming in one of the neighborhoods, and I was just wondering how you liked filming The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang in Oregon? -Kate!
Hey Kate, I liked Oregon, it reminded me a lot of Kentucky and being there was great. I had a lot of fun on the film and recently saw Justin and Joey last week at a screening of the movie.
Question from cheekymonkey
what was it like finding out you got the part in the sasquatch dumpling gang?
It was a good feeling, the same feeling I have when I get any film. They seemed like a nice group of people to work with.
Question from jeremy-is-shexxay
hey jeremy! are you planning on making your own movies?
Yes, I'm still working on my Iraqi script. I want to be a director so I'm reading a lot of books on directing.
Question from Gwinway
If you were making a movie, what who would you pick to be in your dream cast?
I'd like to do a movie with Mel Gibson, Tom Hanks, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Jim Carrey.
I wonder who would get top billing!
Question from CourtneyLoves2dance
Does it bother you that since you started acting, way back when you were a little boy, the people around you have all become critics? I mean, whether they have compliments to give or insults they all, your fans, family, friends, people you have never met, they are all critics. How do you cope with that?
I don't pay attention to the reviews I get. Critics are critics and you are always going to have people that like you and don't like you. Although I when I do hear good buzz about my acting, it is a good thing.
Question from dana10475
What are you doing to prepare for your new movie coming out?
I'm just waiting for it to come out, then I'll probably do some interviews and promotion. Since there are still several studios interested in the movie, a release date hasn't been set. There's not much to do until they announce that.
Question from Stephanie
Hey Jeremy! What kind of person are you as your character in The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang?
Hi Stephanie, I am a total nerd who is totally into outrageous things like fantasy movies and myths.
Question from DeeB
While fimling the sasquatch dumpling gang, were there any experiences that you had that were unforgetable,besides actually filming the movie?
There was a lot of teasing on set since it was very laid back. You don't really come across a film set like that very often.
Question from lil_mizz_qt
hey jeremy! What made u want to do cyber seduction?
To send a message to a lot of kids that were in that position. It was a job to see how far away from myself I can really go.
Question from Guitar_Player
Hey Jeremy. I'm a huge fan of yours and I read somewhere that you play the guitar and I was wondering, how long have you been playing? (and by the way, I'm a guitar player, too. 7 years)
I am definitely sure you are tons better than I am. I pick around on it every now and then.
Question from Bbmac8
Hey Jeremy! I have two questions. 1# How would you describe your personality 2# If you could play a part in any movie wich would it be?
I think most people would say my personality is very outgoing. It might be fun to be in the next Narnia since I'm friends with Anna Popplewell and I'd like to go back to New Zealand and Australia again.
Question from Peug
Hi jeremy_sumpter, I am a fellow actress & I want to know how you deal with stage fright when you perform on stage, and if it's harder to act infront of camera than infront of a live audience?
It's harder to work in front of an audience because you don't know what kind of reaction you will get from them. When you are doing films, if you make a mistake you can do it over. On stage you have to be right the whole way through. I don't get stage freight for some reason.
Question from Vikki-T
What is the weirdest thing a fan has done for you?
hey Vikki, so far there hasn't been anything too weird. What should I expect from you?
I'm sure she should come up with something to catch attention!
Question from themollie
Hey Jeremy, i was just wondering, do you remember your dreams? do you dream in color?
I do remember my dreams, but they are not in color.
Question from fieldhockeychik45
If you did not act what career do you think you would be in?
I'd be a baseball player since it's my favorite sport.
Question from lillyb
hey there jeremy...I just wanted to know, ever since Peter Pan and so fourth...how has your day to day life changed?
Well I get recognized. There is less privacy. Sometimes thats good and sometimes it's not. Other than that, I'm still the same Jeremy and will always be.
Question from JordyIrishx32
J, you seem so amazing!...My question would have to be: What is Your current Fave. Song, Favorite Tom Petty song?
My favorite song is Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton. My favorite Tom Petty song is "I Won't Back Down".
Question from Black_Friday1989
In the FAQ's and Facts section, it says your favourite movie is King Kong, If you got to be in the movie what character would you want to be and why? ( I hope you and your sister had a great 17th Birthday)
I would probably want to play Adrien Brody's character, I forgot the name. Jessy and I had a nice birthday.
Question from jsmiranda
do you have time to be a real teenager?
Of course I do. If I didn't I wouldn't be acting. I have friends in and out of the business that I see and we go play basketball, go to the movies, just regular teen stuf.
Question from lorenzo
you claim to be fearless so i was wondering what would be the most extreme thing you would ever do in your life?
My father used to skydive all the time when I was younger. I might like to try that. I'd also like to be in a car race.

Question from JLynnJ101
Jeremy, first thanks for the autograph, I got in the mail.You are a great actor and I wanted to know how old were you when you first started acting(in small local plays?)

Question from Sami
I am reading The Giver by Lois Lowry for an english assignment right now, it's said that The giver is your favorite book, what was your favorite part about it?
I haven't read the book in four years. I like Jonas' love for his brother to keep him alive.
Question from KiKins77
Jeremy you always make good choices when it comes to chosing your roles so congrats on that :)what maks you become interested in the film?depends on the plot, characters or whose directing maybe?
The director is always important, but so is the script and the character. I've been lucky to work with some great directors. Bill Paxton taught me alot in "Frailty." Danny Glvoer was great. I enjoyed working with Spike Jonze. I can't say enough about PJ Hogan. I'd love to work with him again soon.
Question from Actress12297
I'm an aspiring actress, are there any actting tips you could give?
Find a good, honest agent or manager to guide you, and be very careful about what projects you choose.
And for the last question of the chat .... everyone is asking: Jeremy, do you have a MySpace, screenname, or email address?
I do not have MySpace and never will. I also won't have any of the other ones like Xanga, msn, etc. Everything I do is through this web site which is why it is the only official web site. Thanks to Kris and all my fans who have supported my career!
