PARENTS: Phil and Claire

SIBLINGS: Haley and Alex

Luke can be a bit offbeat. Once he got his head stuck in the banister; another time he jumped around on the trampoline while in his underwear with a box on his head. But Luke epitomizes the innocence of youth and his dad Phil encourages that playfulness by becoming a big kid himself. Though close in age, Luke doesn’t really understand Manny. Sometimes, however, the two can be found scheming together—though half the time they can never agree on an approach.

The hilarious and loveable Nolan Gould was last seen in the 2011 summer hit, "Friends with Benefits," where he played Justin Timberlake’s nephew, budding magician Sam the Magnificent. Gould will next be seen on the big screen in the 2013 movie "The To Do List," starring Andy Samberg, Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader.

Twelve-year-old Gould began his career at the tender age of three doing commercials, when he fell in love with acting. His television credits include R.L. Stein’s "The Haunting Hour" and the lead role in the made-for-TV movie "Ghoul," on Chiller Network. In his spare time Gould keeps his uncanny comedic skills honed by performing in a weekly live improv show. He participates in a variety sports, practices parkour, loves to camp and plays the piano and drums. In addition to his many hobbies, he is a boy scout and an active Mensa member.
