With parents and a brother involved in the Canadian film industry, it is no surprise that Devon Bostick fell into acting at an early age. Making his first brief TV appearance as a young child on the show "Exhibit A: Secrets of Forensic Science", Bostick began acting in earnest around age 12, appearing twice on the Canadian sci-fi series "Odyssey 5", featuring Peter Weller. After a minor part in the 2004 Hollywood horror movie "Godsend", starring Robert De Niro, Bostick continued to work steadily in both film and TV, notably turning up in a guest stint on the popular teen series "Degrassi: The Next Generation" and an even longer run on the fan-favorite show "Being Erica". Following bit parts in George A. Romero's zombie movies "Land of the Dead" and "Survival of the Dead", as well as the horror sequel "Saw VI", Bostick finally garnered a major role, joining the cast of the family film "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" as Rodrick Heffley, the older brother of the tormented main character, Greg Heffley. The movie turned out to be a major hit, and Bostick reprised his role in "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules", this time receiving a bigger share of screen time.
