Immediately Nickelodeon launched a show solely on Diego called ‘Go, Diego, Go!’ which became Jake’s breakthrough stint in the industry. In a couple of years he found himself cast as a voice actor in animated films such as ‘The Ant Bully’ and ‘Everyone’s Hero’. Since this young teenage star had adorable looks, he was cast in his debut live-action film, ‘The Perfect Game’. His performance was acclaimed, and many avenues opened up for him. Jake was over the moon when Disney offered him a role in the movie ‘Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board’ and in their TV show ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ alongside Selena Gomez. He made appearances on several Disney shows, such as ‘Hannah Montana, ‘The Suite Life on Deck’ and ‘Wizards on Deck’. DreamWorks eyed the young celebrity and offered him a role in 2009 for the film ‘Hotel for Dogs’. All through his career, he possessed a hidden talent as a writer, finally in 2011, he sold his first script, ‘Kings of Suburbia’. He has also worked with ‘20th Century fox’ and has voiced the character Fernando in the hit movies ‘Rio’ and ‘Rio2’. 2013 saw him as ‘Jesus Foster’ in the drama series ‘The Fosters’, and in 2016, he was signed as a voice actor in DC Comics’ ‘Justice League vs. Teen Titans’.
