Adam’s first job was starring in a national commercial for The Best of Andy Griffith, playing Opie. However, it was Adam’s role in the hit film How to Eat Friend Worms that caused Hollywood to take notice. First released in 2006, this highly acclaimed film, based on the beloved children’s book by Thomas Rockwell, tells the story of a new kid in school, a bully and a bet made to swallow ten worms in one day. Adam played ‘Joe Guire,’ the schoolyard tormentor whose nefarious wager sets off a chain of events that alters the power balance. Playing a villain is no small feat, but Hicks handles the task with wit, intensity and noticeable prowess.
Previously, Hicks starred in the leading role of ‘Brady Davis’ in the feature film Down and Derby. His other recent credits include: Universal’s adaptation of the R.L. Stine bestseller, Mostly Ghostly, the big screen remake of Disney’s The Shaggy Dog starring Tim Allen and in The 12 Dogs of Christmas, released on DVD in November of 2005.
In addition to his impressive acting talent, Adam also has a true passion and a gift for music and is an award-winning rapper. Adam writes and performs his own creations of what can only be described as a hybrid techno-hip hop beat with rapping lyrics.
