Allen Covert, the star of the laugh-out-loud comedy Grandma’s Boy, is out with a new venture. But this one doesn’t involve a movie about a middle-age “gamer” forced to live with his grandmother because his roommate blew the rent money on Filipino hookers.
Covert’s latest project includes an eBook called Tex the T. Rex, a story about a dinosaur who is born on the Fourth of July and travels the country to understand why America is an exceptional nation.
“I was taught that in this country if you work hard you can do anything, and I don’t see a lot of those principles in children’s books today,” Covert told HUMAN EVENTS. “So we put together stories about hard work and what it takes to get ahead, the American ideals we were all raised with.”
