The actor is well known for his iconic teen-hits like She's All That and I Know What You Did Last Summer, as well as his countless Teen Beat covers. He was actually taking a moment to discuss his former costar, Paul Walker, who passed away in a tragic accident in 2013.

Walker was in the movie She's All That with Prinze Jr., and their bond seemed to start right away. Walker played Prinze Jr.'s best friend in the movie who likes to cause some trouble. While their character's relationship was strained, the actors in real life got along great. The actor shared a story about his first meeting with Walker, and how he made sure that he would get the job.

Prinze Jr. was at Walker's first audition, but he didn't have the authority to offer him the job. He did however do his best to make it clear that he was the best choice.

He said, "When Paul came into audition, I didn’t have cast approval, but I had what they called consultation. I knew Paul was the right guy, and when he finished the audition, I asked if I could excuse myself to go to the bathroom. I ran outside where his car was parked. I said, ‘Hey man, you’re gonna get this job.’"

Freddie Prinze Jr. then took it a step further, not just letting him know he was the top choice, but actually giving him a little insider information...

'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world.

Where Are The Cast Members From 'A League Of Their Own' Now?

A League Of Their Own was one of the most iconic movies of the 90s. I know for me, it would come on TV at least once a month, and every time I would find myself drawn in, watching it even though I probably should have been doing anything else. Between Geena Davis's confident Dotti Hinson, and Tom Hanks's cranky Jimmy Dugan, the movie was irresistible.

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day.

He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if
