Mini Bio (1)

Born Brandon Spencer Lee Call on November 17th, 1976, in Torrance, California, Brandon started performing at the tender age of two. His movie debut, albeit lending his voice, was in Disney's The Black Cauldron (1985), so his first live-action acting role was opposite Glenn Close in Jagged Edge (1985). He made a number of television appearances before gaining popularity playing David Hasselhoff's son on Baywatch (1989). However, his stint on Baywatch (1989) was short-lived as he stayed on the series for only a season. He then pursued another television program, the Brady Bunch-esque show Step by Step (1991), where he portrayed the cool JT Lambert with Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers as his parents.

Growing up, Brandon enjoyed such simple pleasures as playing basketball, boogie boarding, and listening to music. September 3, 1996, was probably a night Brandon will never forget because he was involved in a traffic dispute where he was shot in both arms. Luckily, Step by Step (1991) was a mid-season show, so he had time to recuperate before filming began. This wasn't the first time that Brandon got into trouble, though, as two weeks prior, his off-screen problems made the news. He seemed to have dropped off into relative obscurity, as his last televised role was a guest spot on the Hulk Hogan series Thunder in Paradise (1994).

Trivia (9)

Brandon was originally selected to play the part of 'Kevin Arnold' in The Wonder Years (1988) but was replaced at the last minute by Fred Savage.
Shot in both arms following a traffic dispute September 3, 1996.
Parents: Richard and Elyse.
Siblings: Dee Anne, Tandi, and Dustin.
When Baywatch (1989) was picked up for syndication, Brandon was asked to leave the cast. This was due to having grown so much. David Hasselhoff, who was now producing the show as well as starring on it, wanted to let Hobie Buchannon remain a young boy for a few more seasons. Accordingly, Call was replaced by Jeremy Jackson, who was three years younger and dark-haired instead of blond--and supposedly had a much better singing voice than Brandon's.
Brandon's first child, a daughter, was born in 1998.
He donated many items to Rocky Stone to be given to less fortunate kids as part of the Toy Mountain Campaign.
