Dylan Minnette, born December 29, 1996 in Evansville, Indiana, he started his acting career at a very young age, having small roles in movies like Snow Buddies, but by the time he was a teenager, he got bigger roles in shows and films, like episodes of R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and movies like Let Me In, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, and Goosebumps. (Which he is a fan of).
He plays in the Goosebumps Movie as Zach Cooper, The new neighbor of R.L. Stine (Jack Black), and Hannah Fairchild's (Odeya Rush) love interest. He is considered the main character of the film, because using one story to capture the monsters was his idea, and although he and Stine disliked each other at first, they became friends at the end.
Minnette's Thoughts on the Film
Dylan himself is a huge fan of the Goosebumps Series, so he was really happy to be part of the film.
