Dancing Boy Blind Item
So, coming up, we’re going to start doing intro reels for the dancing boy players (3 minutes each, probably, to be on a dancing boy youtube channel).
I’ll tell you about the Daniel Light one shortly (he’s estranged from his father, Rusty Jacobs, and living on the streets of NYC, where he’s visited/bullied by his older brother – writing this part for the younger sibling, named after a firearm, in a movie about a family of geniuses; the story ends with Daniel concluding I’m a “sell out,” and boarding a bus to LA, armed). Here though is the one about the first quite possible kid actor (per the m/o of the saga these parts will go predominately to small timers).
His first name is the same as a young actor turned adult actor who replaced a now-disgraced actor on a long running TV series (the one with a fractional name).
His last name is the same as a now retired former child actor/80s teen idol turned adult actor (of mostly tv/family fare) who I’ve mentioned as (hopefully) a dancing boy player himself.
You’ll find this child actor on google images, the 7th row down, end of column.
His introduction takes place in an Arizona trailer park – he’s there with his secret mother.
Who might she, hopefully, be?
Well, she’s of course a former child actress herself, and has a memoir coming out.
As the bad guys are descending on the place, she’s forced to reveal that the boy’s secret dad – who he’d been told was a hero/martyr – is actually a washed up deadbeat/drunk.
Fortunately, the boy, previously unbeknownst to him, has a secret uncle – the actress’s real life brother.
He shows up in a nick of time.
