JJ Totah is a series regular on the new fall ABC comedy, 'Back in the Game'. It didn't take long for this eleven year old to land a starring role alongside of the legendary James Caan, once he convinced his parents to move to Hollywood so he could pursue his dream-- to be in show business.
JJ knew at a young age that he was born to entertain! As early as 6 years old, he was making youtube videos and entertaining his large family at Thanksgiving dinners. The crowds got bigger though, as he went on to book regional and community theater productions of 'Beauty and the Beast' and' Seussical' in and around his hometown of Davis. But JJ still longed for the big time and his mom remembers walking in on JJ only to find that he was calling Hollywood agents and introducing himself! The tables soon turned though and they started calling him! After seeing JJ perform stand up ( as part of Standing Tall) at the renowned Hollywood Improv, JJ proved to be a natural- impressing casting directors, agents and managers with his brilliant comedic timing and delivery. The rest is quickly becoming history. JJ recurred for 2 seasons on the Disney Channel's sitcom 'Jessie' and landed other tv and film roles, as well as appearing in national commercials.
JJ can be seen as ' Michael' in ' Back in the Game' this fall on ABC, Wednesday nights at 8:30pm Pacfic time, 7:30 central.
