WASHINGTON - A central Illinois teenager is coming to the big screen. The 14-year-old from Washington is making his movie debut next week.
“I'm excited to go see it and meet all the people again," said Jacob Williams, 14.  
For the most part, Williams is your typical teenager. The freshman student attends and plays soccer for Washington Community High School.  
But on October 18, movie-goers across the nation will find him on the big screen in independent film, "The Stream." Hollywood stars Mario Lopez and Rainn Wilson of television show, “The Office”, are also in the film.
"He was a really nice guy and he gave us tips and stuff on like how to act in movies and TV and stuff," said Williams of Lopez.  
In the adventure comedy, he plays "Ernest Terry,” a kid hoping for one more adventure with his friends before his family moves away.
"He has a hard time making friends because his family's moved around a lot and this is like the first time he's actually been able to make friends. So he's going to use the time he has to make sure he can spend it with his friends," said Williams on playing the role.
The film was shot for more than two months in Philadelphia last year. This is Williams’ first movie role, which has been a lifelong dream after getting his first theatre role in fifth grade. He hopes it is only the beginning of a long career.
"Well I'd like to keep going it,” he said. “That and directing throughout the rest of my life. It's something fun I enjoy and to have that as a career that'd be awesome."  
Jacob will travel for red carpet appearances in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago in a span of three days. The movie raises money for the Boy's and Girl's Club of America. For more information on the film, visit  thestreammovie.com.
