Rising star and Palisadian Griffin Gluck is co-starring with Pete Davidson (“Saturday Night Live”) in “Big Time Adolescence,” a film recently picked up by Hulu and out on limited release starting March 13.

Gluck, 19, grew up in the Alphabet Streets. His parents are film director Cellin Gluck (“Sideways”) and producer Karin Beck. His older sister, Caroline, attended Palisades Charter High School.

“A suburban teenager comes of age under the destructive guidance of his best friend, an aimless college dropout,” according to IMDb.

Gluck also plays Gabe in the Netflix mystery drama television series “Locke & Key,” based on a comic series by the same name that premiered in February 2020.

Gluck had a breakout role playing Palisadian Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s son in the 2011 comedy movie “Just Go With It.” Gluck also played Sam Ecklund on the television series “American Vandal.”

The first season of “American Vandal” was filmed in the Palisades in 2017 before the series moved production to Portland, Oregon. The fictional school in the series Hanover High School was reportedly shot at Pali High.

“Big Time Adolescence” originally screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019 and will begin streaming on Hulu, one week after it heads to theaters.

The picture marks the directorial debut of Jason Orley, who also wrote the movie.

The rated R comedy has a run time of 91 minutes.
