Jake T. Austin: They Had A Sense Of What The Outcome Was

Posted: Updated:

Jake T. Austin has grown up before our eyes. He's best known for playing the lovable and goofy youngest brother on Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place," but with "Wizards" having aired its series finale a year ago, Jake said his final goodbyes to Max Russo.

Now, in his new role on ABC Family's "The Fosters," 18-year-old Jake is playing Jesus Foster, the middle son in a diverse family about two moms who are raising both biological and adoptive children.

Diverse and history-making.  Jesus's two moms, played by Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are getting married on the show's season finale, an episode called "I Do," which was actually filmed on the same day of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling which re-opened the door to same-sex marriage in California.

Jake joins Tony McEwing and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.

Fun Facts About Jake T. Austin:

  • Beginning a career as a child actor at the age of seven, Austin is a five-time Young Artist Award nominee, best known for his role as Max Russo, the youngest of three wizards on the Disney Channel original series Wizards of Waverly Place, and as the voice of Diego, the 8-year-old animal rescuer on the Nickelodeon animated series Go, Diego, Go!.
