Collin Lee was Greg Heffley's backup friend and Rowley Jefferson's one-time best friend. He appears in Diary of a Wimpy Kid, its movie adaptation, and the online book, and well as playing minor roles in Dog Days and The Ugly Truth.
Diary of a Wimpy Kid
After Greg and Rowley break up, Rowley starts hanging out with Collin every day after school, and the two become close to the point that they make "Best Friend" t-shirts featuring each other and wear them to school. After dinner one night, Greg sees him and Rowley walking up to Rowley's house for a sleepover and decides to go to Fregley's house to show that he has other friend options as well. While inside, Greg starts to regret his decision and intends to leave, though he doesn't because Rowley and Collin are still in Rowley's front yard.
When Susan Heffley starts a reading club in Greg's neighborhood, Collin is one of the boys who is forced to attend, though he bails out after the first meeting.

Collin appears briefly during the Lock-In when everyone is playing icebreakers.
