History[]

Diary of a Wimpy Kid[]

During the casting call, Rodney tries out to be the Tin Man, but doesn't make the cut. He is relegated to playing the Shrub, as there are too many kids in the play and the school has started to make up roles to fill the gaps.[1]

He figures out how to sneak a video game into his costume and begins to use it to pass the time during the rehearsals, since his only role is to sit on stage and do nothing.[2] At one point, Archie Kelly trips over him and chips his tooth, because he couldn't use his arms to break his fall. This leads to the school allowing him and the other tree actors to carve out armholes for the show. [3]

Right before the play, Rodney gets stage fright, which causes the production to be delayed for half an hour. His mother eventually had to carry him off.[4]

In the film, he initially plays the role of a bush, but becomes part of the tree scene during the actual play.
