The holiday season is all about giving and as for the Buckley brothers, they are giving big time this Christmas! We all love watching holiday movies and a new Christmas film has just made its way to Amazon and Netflix titled, “The Christmas Project.” The phenomenal movie, which stars the remarkable and immensely talented Jacob Buster, revolves around the Buckley brothers who are giving the gift of revenge to the Hagbarts brothers – the meanest middle school bullies. ‘Tis the season to be jolly and the real question is: will the Buckley brothers be naughty or nice this year? “The Christmas Project” is a spectacular movie that is filled with lots of laughs and some good ‘ol Christmas joy and it is bound to be your favorite Christmas movie ever.
Starring as Matthew Buckley in the outstanding holiday movie is the sensational Jacob Buster. We’ve seen the magnificent and exceptional actor in many terrific projects including the hit drama, “Colony,” as well as in “The Thundermans,” “Suits,” and many more. With each project that he works on, Jacob Buster always leaves us all in awe and he manages to bring us all into the worlds of each character he plays. He has such a raw and genuine gift for acting and every project that he is a part of is always a brilliant one.
With Christmas only a few more days away, it’s time to binge-watch some more holiday movies and put “The Christmas Project” at the top of your list of movies to watch (and re-watch over and over!) I, Alexisjoyvipaccess had an excellent time interviewing the phenomenal Jacob Buster and he dished exclusively to Alexisjoyvipaccess all about what it was like for him working on “The Christmas Project,” what are some of his holiday traditions, what is the best holiday gift he has ever received, and so much more only in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview. Check out what he had to say in our VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview below!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You star in the movie, “The Christmas Project,” can you tell us what it was like working on set of the film?
Jacob Buster: This was just pure fun! I loved the comedy and working with pretty much only kids. This is very different from my usual roles, which are typically darker and more dramatic. I also typically work with only adults. These group of kids were fantastic. We became such a family. I truly love them all.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Is there a moment from working on set of the movie that sticks out to you the most?
Jacob Buster: My favorite scene was when we rolled our youngest brother off the top bunk bed onto a pile of pillows. This movie had so many fun, funny, and high energy moments. It was very different than my usual roles. It didn’t feel like work at all. We just played the whole time!
Alexisjoyvipaccess: In the movie, the Buckley brothers give the Hagbarts brothers a gift of revenge for Christmas for being the ultimate bullies. What do you think is the best Christmas prank?
Jacob Buster: Actually, what I love about this story is that even though Matthew was bullied, he doesn’t dish it back. He stops the cycle. He learns about the true Christmas Spirit when he has to be a Secret Santa for his bullies. I don’t think of Christmas as a time for pranks. My family and I have actually been Secret Santa’s for families in need and I have been so filled with love and so much gratitude for all that I have. I love seeing the kids later with something I gave them and how happy they are, just like when one of the bullies shows my character her new gloves she got, not knowing they were from me. It kind of makes any bad feelings melt away. I can start to see everyone as just like me, just human.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: What is the best holiday gift you’ve ever received?
Jacob Buster: I am a Disney fanatic, so I think our family trips to Disney World. I love time with my family and Disney is pure magic for me. I always love the video games, computers, motorized scooters, and big things like that, but nothing can beat quality time with my family.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: What is the best holiday gift you’ve ever given?
Jacob Buster: Probably a card for my mom. I just really like giving a gift that someone wants and means something to them, even if it doesn’t cost anything at all.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: What are some of your holiday traditions?
Jacob Buster: We have the coziest Christmas mornings with our family – stockings, presents, and eggs benedict! We also always choose a family in need and we’re their Secret Santa.
Alexisjoyvipaccess: Lastly, if you could bring out one message to all of your fans, what message would that be?
Jacob Buster: It’s kind of basic but, just LOVE! We’re all the same. We’re all human. We all want to be liked, be accepted, be noticed, and feel special. With all of our differences, I hope we can truly have no judgement and just love each other. Also, don’t let moments pass. All we have is now. So go ahead and dream…dream big! But, remember to WORK at those dreams now!
