Adam Lamberg is an American former child actor, known for little else besides playing ‘David "Gordo" Gordon’ in ‘Lizzie McGuire,’ ‘Disney Channel’s popular TV series for kids, in the early 2000s. He reprised his character in ‘The Lizzie McGuire Movie,’ where he eventually scored the girl of the show, to the delight of many young fans. The floppy-haired actor became an on-screen crush for legions of teenage female fans. He portrayed the “best friend,” hopelessly in love with the main protagonist of the franchise. “Gordo” was the smart, nerdy, and sarcastic voice of reason that completed the triad of friends with ‘Lizzie’ and ‘Miranda.’ While actor and singer Hilary Duff, who played the title character, has become a famous pop star and actor, Lamberg has fallen into self-imposed anonymity since 2008. Apparently, he is now pretty much unrecognizable to many fans of the show. Though he has more or less stayed out of the limelight since the release of the film, he did appear in a few other shows, shorts, and indie films, before calling it quits. In the mid-2010s, ‘Google’ was reportedly auto-correcting his name to that of singer Adam Lambert, who has recently collaborated with the rock band ‘Queen.’
