OF TWISTS AND TWINS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Out Box Of The -

FE­LIC­ITY Huff­man, who was nom­i­nated for an Academy Award for her por­trayal of a trans­sex­ual in 2005’s Transamer­ica, was happy with the unique script twist.

But she was wor­ried that 20-year-old iden­ti­cal twins Char­lie and Max Carver, who would be play­ing her trou­ble­some teenage sons Porter and Pre­ston, would ar­rive with egos.

‘‘You are al­ways wor­ried with young ac­tors be­cause it’s an odd busi­ness. Of­ten times they don’t have a work ethic and have this odd sense of en­ti­tle­ment, which I’m sure I had as a young ac­tor,’’ Huff­man says.

‘‘But Max and Char­lie are re­spect­ful, work hard and are nice, smart boys. They’re a plea­sure to be around.’’

Mean­while, Joshua Moore por­trays sen­si­tive mid­dle child Parker, who’s trans­formed into an an­gelic 14-year-old tech­ni­cal nerd. And youngest child Penny is more in the back­ground, but has a ‘‘sparky’’ per­son­al­ity.
