Brandon Call

Birth Date: November 17, 1976 / Age: 37
Birth Place: Torrance, California, USA

Biography: Brandon started performing at the tender age of 2. His movie debut was in Disney's The Black Cauldron (1985), so his first actual acting role was in Jagged Edge (1985). He made a number of television appearances before gaining popularity playing David Hasselhoff's son in "Baywatch" (1989). He stayed on the series for only a season. He then pursued another television program "Step by Step" (1991) where he portrayed the cool "J.T. Lambert" with Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers as his parents.

Growing up, Brandon liked playing basketball, boogie boarding, and listening to music.

Brandon guest starred in a number of series. He seems to have dropped off relative obscurity as his last televised role was a guest spot in the Hulk Hogan series, "Thunder in Paradise" (1994).

> Trivia/Information/Fun Facts

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.

When "Baywatch" (1989) was picked up for syndication, Brandon was asked to leave the cast. This was due to his having grown (within the past year or so) almost as tall and muscular as star David Hasselhoff. 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 has a much better singing voice than Brandon's).
