Declan Mueller played the role of Joseph Gaffigan in season two of The Jim Gaffigan Show. This year he has been seen in an episode of Odd Mom Out, and did shoots for KidBox and Target!
1. What was Declan’s first day on set for The Jim Gaffigan Show like?
Declan’s first day ever working with the Gaffigans was on location; all outdoors: stills and a time-lapse sequence. it was freezing out! It was a neat day and everyone was wonderful. His first day at the studio was pretty thrilling, too. Just an overall outstanding experience from first day to last, mainly because of great people, from Jeannie and Jim on down the line.
2. How did he enjoy filming with Caitlin Moeller?
Caitlin’s sweet! She was very kind to Declan- all of the children were most welcoming to Declan.
3. What was it like to film on location for the show?
One of the great things about The Jim Gaffigan Show is that it is authentic New York, so every little street scene, restaurant scene, you name it…it’s all the real deal. It was fun for Declan to see some new places but also fun to visit some familiar places in a more official capacity.
4. How did Declan enjoy shooting for Target?
Declan’s been lucky enough to have been asked to shoot as the principal for some pretty high-profile campaigns for some famous brands (Gap, Adidas, etc.). However, his recent small role for Target may actually be what has most resonated with him- due to the fact that it is the first thing that actually came out since he started school and also since he shops at Target at all the time!
5. What was Declan’s shoot for Kidbox like?
Kidbox is the best! Great company doing good things. That was a very busy time for Declan as they shot their back-to-school, fall and winter campaigns in one week! It was a really outstanding crew and the other models were really cool so the time went quickly.
6. How does it feel seeing his photos popping up all over their website?
Seeing a new image of Declan pop up unexpectedly in an advertisement is certainly a great way to start a day. Kidbox definitely got bang for their buck with Declan; he’s a principal in their advertisements, their mailers, their website, their social media and even their app. It’s a lot of fun.
7. What was the experience like filming his episode of Odd Mom Out?
Odd Mom Out was a great experience! Jill Kargman is awesome. The stars of the show were hilarious and very kind, the other kids were sweet and, coincidentally, it was a simple commute because that episode just happened to be shot on location in Declan’s very small, very out-of-the-way hometown!
8. Has he seen his part of the episode on TV? If so how did he react?
Declan does enjoy checking out the work he’s done and enjoyed that episode a great deal.
9. Who have been some of your favorite people that Declan has worked with this year?
Declan appears in the pilot for the new Tracy Morgan show that will air next spring and it was neat to get to see him work.
A huge thrill for Declan was getting to spend time on set with his older brother Dylan as they filmed for The Land of Steady Habits. They’re best friends and great brothers to one another so it was a total joy to be on camera together in a major motion picture. They’re bit players, but both brothers were most flattered to have been asked to appear together and are really grateful for that unique opportunity.
10. Is there anything you can share about Declan’s role in the film A Kid Like Jake?
It isn’t major, but it’s an important film for a variety of reasons so he’s proud to be a part of it and, as his family, we’re really proud of that fact, too.
11. Is there anything else you would like to add?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone and thanks to the good folks at Star-Kidz for always being so good to Declan!
