Mini Bio (1)

In 2006 R.J. Mitte moved to Hollywood, California, with his family to support the foray of his sister, actress Lacianne Carriere, into print and commercial work. For fun, Mitte began training with Los Angeles talent manager Addison K. Witt in Sherman Oaks, Cal. And though many of the actors in the studio were working actors, Mitte was using acting as a means to build friendship with kids his own age while living in a new city. At the encouragement of Witt and talent agent Debra Manners of the Daniel Hoff Agency, Mitte began auditioning for commercials and TV shows like Grey's Anatomy. Mitte tried his hand at background roles and became a regular student on the popular Disney show Hanna Montana, later being romantically linked to the show's iconic star, Miley Cyrus.

Mitte was cast as Walt White Jr., a series regular, and character with cerebral palsy on AMC Network's Breaking Bad. And though Mitte has a mild case of the disorder, he had to do what all actors do: research the character and even relearn many of the challenges he had endured as a child in order to convey a more pronounced version of CP. The Daily Advertiser, a Lafayette, La., newspaper learned of Mitte's work in Hollywood and featured him in an article, noting that R.J. was homegrown, and off to a great start in Hollywood.

I wouldn't say in all situations, but a lot of times kids can be the most reasonable people around because they don't have the deal with all the drama that goes along with being an adult.
I spent a long time away from my parents when I was younger. I would go hunting and fishing with my uncle, and we would go for weeks at a time. I also spent a lot of time in Texas with my grandparents.

I want to get my Masters in business.
I personally don't like school, but you have to do it if you want to get through life, so pretty much I put up with it.
I like to work.
I hate being immobile.
I feel bad for people in wheelchairs and people who have to use crutches.
I don't really say too much to my parents. If they ask me to do something I just do it and get it out of the way.

My sister is a mess. I love her to death, but she is a mess.
I say, 'You can never use excuses because they always run out.'
I like to dirt bike ride, four wheeler, go-kart.
'Breaking Bad' - I've heard that question phrased in many directions, and it always means the same thing. It's when someone can't... when a decent person can't take it any more. They just kind of turn and go in the opposite direction.
