‘According To Jim’ Cast Member Learns To Throw A Punch

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You learn all sorts of cool things being a child actor – including how to throw a punch.

At least you do if you’re Connor Rayburn, who plays Jim Belushi’s son, Kyle, on the ABC sitcom, According To Jim.

The show returns to the ABC schedule on January 3 and the plot concerns Connor’s character being bullied by an older kid.

Being bullied in real life is no fun but Connor says filming the episode was a blast because his character got to film some fight scenes.

In fact, a professional stunt coordinator was brought in to show Connor to show the proper way to throw a punch a foot away from the other person and still have it look real to the camera.

With a job like that, it’s no wonder Connor says he wants to be an actor “forever and ever and ever.”

And while other actors may have influences, Connor admits he doesn’t. As he puts it, “I am my own hero.”
