Disney Channel Actor Works For Wizardry

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For Disney Channel actor David Henrie, his new gig requires some serious – and magical – dedication.

Henrie – best known for his work on How I Met Your Mother and That’s So Raven – plays the oldest brother of a wizard family in Wizards of Waverly Place, and says he’s working hard on his wizardry and magic for the show.

Says Henrie: “My character can do all kinds of cool stuff like fly and duplicate things, but the only magic I really know is that cheesy floating thumb trick and some card tricks. That’s about it, but I’m working on more convincing tricks. Being a teen wizard is tough!”

And while Henrie gets some of his magical inspiration from the ultimate teen wizard, Harry Potter, Henrie admits he’d rather be playing sports than casting spells.

Henrie explains, “When I’m not playing a wizard, I like skateboarding, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. I’m just not cool enough to have wizard powers, but if I did I’d want the power to control time. If I messed up I’d just press pause, rewind, and fix my mistake. It would be awesome!”

Wizards of Waverly Place premieres Friday (Oct. 12) on the Disney Channel.
