Who is Jake Smollett?

Jake Smollett is an American actor best known for starring as a child actor in the ABC comedy series ‘On Our Own’, which also had his siblings in major roles. The sitcom was a popular one and earned him a nomination for Young Artist Awards in the category Best Performance by an Actor Under Ten in a TV Series. Born into a family of actors, it comes as no surprise that Jake began his own career as a baby diaper model when he was just an infant. Having entered the world of show biz at a very tender age, he literally grew up in front of the camera which explains the confidence he naturally exudes as a performer. Cute and talented, he was also blessed with an inherent love for acting which made him a popular choice for playing little boys of color in several television series. After appearing in a small role in the sitcom ‘Hangin' with Mr. Cooper’ in 1992, he went on to portray a variety of characters in various other television series.

Career

Given his family background, it would seem like Jake Smollett was always meant for acting glory! Born into a family firmly rooted in the acting profession, he was thrust into the limelight even before he could walk or talk. However, it would be wrong to assume that Jake is successful today only because of his family’s acting history. While he definitely got the required impetus from his parents at a young age, it is only due to his own talent and passion for the profession of acting that he has come this far. Along with his five siblings, Jake appeared in the ABC sitcom ‘On Our Own’ which ran from September 1994 to April 1995. The series proved to be a popular one and brought considerable fame to the Smollett siblings. Following this success, Jake acted as Poe Batiste in the critically acclaimed drama film ‘Eve's Bayou,’ which marked Kasi Lemmons’ directorial debut. His role as Noser in the television series ‘The Middleman’ (2008–2009) was also much appreciated.
