Darren Walsh (known as Darnell Washington in the online book) is a boy who started the Cheese Touch trend by touching the Cheese with his finger. He appears in Diary of a Wimpy Kid and its film adaptation, as well as Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2021 film)

History[]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid[]

When Darren touches the cheese he is depicted by Greg as chasing the other kids with it. He is clearly seen enjoying it and starts the Cheese Touch. [1]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010 film)[]

Darren appears as a minor character and his role is the same as in the books. However, he is not shown enjoying the Cheese Touch frenzy and begins sobbing after becoming an outcast.

In this version, a student of Asian heritage calls Darren out after he touches the cheese. Despite Darren denying this, all of the other kids run away from him, and actively avoid him in the school hallways, becoming an outcast in the process.[2] He eventually manages to pass the Cheese Touch onto a girl, who passes it to a number of other people until the last person who gets it moves away during the summer.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2021 film)[]

In this film, his role is changed so that he is a high school student around the same age as Rodrick Heffley.

Online[]

In the online book, Darren is renamed as Darnell Washington and his history with the Cheese Touch began when he tripped over and accidentally touched the cheese.[3]

Trivia[]

  • On the Popularity List, Darren is shown in 50th place and somehow later falls to 198th place. This is most likely due to the fact that he is the person who started the Cheese Touch in the first place.
  • It is possible that the online version of Darren Walsh, Darnell Washington, is related to either Mr. Washington, a school janitor who appears in Big Shot, or the online version of Mr. Alexander, who is also named Mr. Washington. The former is unlikely, as Darnell is the online counterpart of a character who appears in the books under a different name, while Mr. Washington solely appears in the books.
