I play the nerdy Breehn in Cartoon Network’s Clarence! It was one of my first voice over roles overall, so it was great to get experience behind the mic before moving to bigger roles like “Toby” and “Bunga,” but I’ve fallen in love with Breehn over time, and I actually really identify with him and his geeky social unconformability!
Have you checked your Netflix queue lately? Does it have "The Adventures of Puss In Boots" in it yet? If the answer to this question is no, go to your queue immediatley and add it! If the answer is yes, carry on reading this! My latest show is Netflix and Dreamwork's brand new show "The Adventures of Puss In Boots!" I play Toby, a little piglet inside of a giant pig's body who doesn't know his own strength. He's really funny, and lot's of fun to play! I think that kids are going to love it, and new episodes are coming out all the time!
I’ve been so proud to play “Bunga” on Disney’s The Lion Guard! The show premiered in November 2015, with a TV series starting in January of the next year. It’s been amazing to work on, and a real joy! I’ve gotten a lot of voice over experience from it, and learning all about the inner working of the animation industry has been great!
I was super proud to work on Andi Mack in the winter of 2016 as Cyrus, who is who is Andi’s best friend. He’s quirky, not athletic, and generally just a little awkward. He’s got a sense of humor that can make just about anyone laugh. Cyrus doesn’t fit in with anyone but Andi and Buffy…and he wouldn’t want to anyway. I can’t wait for you to see it!
It’s a scary movie. Consider yourself warned. I played Jacob in “Emelie,” alongside Sarah Bolger, who plays the titular character. It was really fun! Horror movies are some of my favorites to work on, especially as a lover of horror movies myself! It was really fun to see all the different techniques used that are so scary up on screen, but in front of the camera start looking rather benign! For example, (SPOILER ALERT) at the end of the movie, fireworks explode in Emelie’s face. In the movie, it’s terrifying, but in person it’s just a bunch of flashing lights pointed at her face!
If you’re not so familiar with LA County geography, let me describe Fillmore, California for you. It’s an agrarian town if there ever was one. Orange fields, just everywhere. It’s this little town out of the big city that is the setting for “Sex, Death, and Bowling.” Fun Fact: It’s not as NSFW as the title may seem! With the help of my (Eli McAllister) uncle (Sean McAllister, Adrian Grenier), I embark on a journey to cope with the slow death of my father to cancer, to win a bowling tournament, and to beat bullies. It’s a sad movie, but in the end, it really brings home a great message: that we all have to bind together, no matter how hard things get.
PS: The title has an oxford comma and the official film title doesn't. I'm a purist.
In summer of 2014 I got to go to SXSW (South by Southwest), a film festival in Austin, for the world premiere of my new movie,"Break Point," and let me tell you, it was a blast! Thanks to a new friend of mine, I got in to the interactive (technology) section of the festival too, and it was amazing! Unfortunatley, I was late for a lecture by Michael Dell :( but I got to see my latest movie on the big screen!
Break Point's website is here: http://www.breakpointfilm.com/index.php

I like to call Parental Guidance my “big break.” It was my first film in theaters, and my first film with a really big name. Actually two big names. Well, make that three. Four? Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Marisa Tomei, Bailee Madison, Tom Everett Scott, and little old me! It was crazy, and I even got in at the ground floor because I played my character, Turner, when Billy Crystal was pitching the series to producers in a table read! Shooting in Atlanta for 4 months was an experience like no other, and I’ll never forget it!
