After Greg and Rowley break up their friendship, Rowley starts hanging out with Collin every day after school and the two become close to the point that they made "Best Friend" T-shirts that features each other and wear them to school. After dinner one night, Greg sees him and Rowley walking up to Rowley's house, noting that Collin was carrying his sleeping bag 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 Collin is still with Rowley in his front yard.[1] It's unknown what happened to him after Greg and Rowley got back together.

Collin plays a much more prominent role, taking up many of Rowley's significant roles from the books. During his first appearance, Greg says he goes up to Collin's house after his dad kicks him out of the house because his dad has every Spider Man comic book since 1968 and many of Rowley's traits in the book series. [3]

Greg and Rowley headed straight to Collin's house, hoping to drain out the teenagers that are chasing them in a pickup truck. Collin's parents were at a party, but Rowley knew Collin's babysitter, who let them inside while Collin was asleep upstairs. After Greg and Rowley knew, the teenagers were going to wait them out, they decided they were going to spend the night at Collin's though they became cocky after that decision. Rowley called his parents and said he was staying over at Collin's and Greg called Ann Heffley to say the same thing but was actually furious at Greg and demanded them to come home this instant. Greg tells Rowley that they had to make a run for it, but Rowley said there was no way he was going out there and was going to spend the night at Collin's but changes his mind after Greg gives him a speech about "loyalty."[4] The next day, Collin's house was toilet papered by the teenagers as Greg was passing by on a bus.[5]

Every time Greg was grounded from playing video games, he would get around his punishment by bring his games to Collin's house. [6]

Greg plans to go up to Collin's house again until he was informed that he was going to stay at Aunt Cakey's with his younger brother, Manny Heffley.[7]


  • Given estimates made based off of illustrations of him, Collin Lee is most likely between 3' 9" (114.3 cm) and 3' 11" (119.38 cm) tall. However, this is entirely conjecture, as his height has never been stated conclusively within the series.
  • In the online book, Collin bears a very strong resemblance to Alex Aruda. In the book series, his appearance is changed so that he is short and stout with curly hair and no glasses.
  • In the online book, Collin's house gets toilet papered. In Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the victim is changed to Gramma.
