Bobb EJ Thompson is an American actor. His full name is Bobb’e Jacques Thompson, and he was born on February 28, 1996 in Kansas City, Missouri. Thompson is of African-American descent. As a child actor, Thompson has always made his parents proud with his dedication to his craft. He’s not really that tall – As of this year, he measures at least 4’11”. He is still a growing boy though, so he has yet to reach his full height. Thompson is also the youngest of nine siblings.
Thompson did not start off as an actor – In fact, he started rapping when he was only five years old, and this makes him a very talented kid in general. Not a lot of people can possess both skills in rapping and acting. As the youngest in a brood of nine, life hasn’t always been easy for Thompson, and had to share the attention of his parents with his siblings.
Thompson has always been considered as a brilliant child actor, but his characters have always been so controversial, even while he was younger – In the film Role Models, which also stars Sean William Scott and Paul Rudd, he played a foul-mouthed kid named Ronnie Shields who had no respect for his elders. There were actually rumors that Thompson was like that too in real life, but these were proved to be false. Still, Thompson should know better and not carry that kind of attitude when talking to people in real life.
Thompson first started his career as a child actor by playing a pint-sized version of rapper Tupac Shakur in the 2003 movie, My Baby’s Daddy. This film was directed by Cheryl Dunye, and was meant to be an unofficial sequel to Three Men and a Baby. He also made a regular guest appearance on the Disney Channel show That’s So Raven. In this show, Thompson played Stanley, a young kid who is obsessed with the lead character Raven Baxter (played by singer/actress Raven Symone).
He has already made plenty of movies and TV show guestings, and he can further increase that in his teen years. In 2004, he portrayed the role of Stokley in the Christopher Morrison-directed film, Full Clip. The film stars rappers Busta Rhymes and Xzibit. Thompson’s portrayal of Stokely earned him plenty of fans.
Thompson is also a voice actor. He played the character of Shortie #1 in the Dreamworks Animation film, Shark Tale. He also starred as a supporting character in another Dreamworks Animation flick, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Thompson plays Calvin Deveraux, the son of police officer Earl Deveraux (portrayed by Mr. T.).
In 2006, Thompson appeared in Bryan Barber’s musical drama, Idlewild. He stars alongside Outkast members Andre 3000, and Big Boi. In the same year, Thompson teamed up with Vince Vaughn in the holiday comedy, Fred Claus (directed by David Dobkin).
As of now, it seems like Thomson does not have a girlfriend or is not romantically linked to anyone. Once he gets older, he will find the right girl for himself, and they can become boyfriend and girlfriend, or even get married. He is not gay, but Thompson, nor his family, has never discussed his current preference – So nothing is certain.
Thompson has always been so popular and successful, even while he was little. So information about his childhood years and film/rapping career can be found on site such as Wikipedia. He also has his own IMDB page. At the tender age of 19, Thompson has a net worth of 2.5 million dollars, which is highly impressive, especially since he still has a long way to go in his career.
Rumor and Controversy
Does Bobb EJ Thompson have a secret illness?
There have been persistent rumors about Thompson acquiring some sort of illness related to growth hormone deficiency. This has not been confirmed nor denied by Thompson, his family, or his representatives. He also has a decent-sized fanbase on the popular social networking Website, Twitter. He has a total of 7,500 followers, which isn’t too impressive for a celebrity, but already great nonetheless. This is bound to grow sometime in the future, and will also serve as a proof of his popularity. Twitter is the only networking site that Thompson uses – He has no Instagram account as he doesn’t feel like sharing pictures of himself to his admirers or strangers.
