Biography

The first feature film in which Jonah Bobo appeared, the independent comedy "The Best Thief in the World" (2004), was released before his seventh birthday. Since then Bobo has worked with some of Hollywood's top actors and actresses in film including Christopher Walken, Ryan Gosling, and Julianne Moore. For several years he provided the voice of Austin on "The Backyardigans" (Treehouse TV, Nick Jr., 2004-2010 ), and in addition to his work in television and film, he has played with the band The Bonnie Situation.

Raised by Jewish Orthodox parents, Bobo started in show business as a voice actor on the animated show "The Backyardigans" in 2004. It proved to be a banner year for him professionally; he also worked with Christopher Walken and Michael Caine in "Around the Bend," and landed a small part in "The Best Thief in the World." A year later he starred in "Zathura: A Space Adventure" (2005), but the film failed at the box office despite praise from critics.

Bobo went on to appear in small roles in numerous other films, most notably "Crazy, Stupid, Love" (2011) with Steve Carell and Julianne Moore. For the past several years, he has also been the lead vocalist and guitarist in the band The Bonnie Situation, and has expressed an interest in moving away from acting and toward music as a career. In 2012, he appeared in the film "Disconnect" which also starred Jason Bateman.
