Affable, friendly Josh usually plays "the good guy" in films but he is stoked to portray "baddie" Steve in the new fantasy vampire film Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant based upon the book series. In our exclusive interview, Josh spilled that he and co-star Chris Massoglia, who plays Darren, friends turned enemies in the movie, played basketball and backstage pranks together and basically had a blast shooting in a creepy graveyard and old movie theater in New Orleans.
