Still, the actor has made time to reprise his role as the junior James Bond in Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, the follow-up to his successful 2003 kid-spy flick. And after 10 years in showbiz, Muniz is more than ready to make the jump from child star to "adult actor." He recently spoke to reporters about his transitioning career, his dating life and his brief moment in bed with Cher.
So, are you ever going to get Ashton Kutcher back for being Punk'd?
No. I think that everyone is out for him because everyone in Hollywood has now been Punk'd. So, I don't know, maybe one day we'll all come up with a good idea.
You looked really upset when they stole your Porsche.
It's funny because I know the real story. They cut it to five minutes, but it was really over a two-hour period of me waiting for my car. So, I was cool for like the first hour and a half, and then, I started to curse out the valet guy. They made me look a lot worse than I really am.
Cody Banks seems to be following in the footsteps of James Bond. Do you have a favorite Bond movie?
The one that I was actually old enough to understand was Die Another Day, the latest one. The cars in the end were really cool. I thought that it was fun.
What's going to happen to Cody Banks when he graduates from high school?
Who knows? Maybe that's what the third one will entail, if we do a third one.
Are there plans for it?
Well, we've talked about (it), but it's all about if this one does well. Right now, I'm not at the best point in my career to do another Cody Banks movie – three years in a row of Cody Banks. Being on Malcolm in the Middle, I only have three months during the summer to do something else, and now that I've turned 18, I have to make that transition from child actor to adult actor.
Some child actors have trouble with that. Does that worry you?
Well, it doesn't scare me. I'm actually thinking about it, though, which is weird because I thought that it'd just happen and that I'd be set and it'd be perfect.
