Profile Bio Text
Roy Frank "RJ" Mitte III (born August 21, 1992) is an American actor, best known for his role as Walter "Flynn" White Jr. on the AMC series Breaking Bad. Like his character on Breaking Bad, Mitte has mild cerebral palsy. After moving to Hollywood in 2006, he began training with personal talent manager Addison Witt. Mitte and Witt sought out acting opportunities where his disability would serve to educate viewers, which led him to audition for the role in Breaking Bad.
Mitte was born in Lafayette, Louisiana, and moved with his family to Los Angeles in 2006, where his younger sister Lacianne Carriere had received an offer for a role in a film project.
After receiving several roles as extras, including in the Disney series Hannah Montana, Mitte became interested in films and decided to take acting lessons. Shortly after, he was offered the role of Walter White Jr., who also has cerebral palsy, in the AMC series Breaking Bad. The Screen Actors Guild named Mitte as the spokesman for actors with disabilities. He is the representative of "Inclusion in the Arts and Media of Performers with Disabilities", which employs artists with disabilities.
Mitte will star in the film Wildflowers. His sister, 9-year-old Lacianne Carriere, will also be in the film. Mitte is one of the producers on the project. He is also working as a producer on a documentary called The Kids of Widney High. He hopes to branch out into directing. In 2011 he starred in the short horror film Stump. That same year, he worked as executive producer of the documentary Vanished: The Tara Calico Story, that deals with the disappearance of Tara Calico. In 2012 Mitte was cast in the thriller film House of Last Things. In 2013 Mitte played Child in the music video "Dead Bite" from rapcore band Hollywood Undead.
Although Mitte had to learn to use crutches and slur his speech for his Breaking Bad role, he continues physical and occupational therapy daily in real life to overcome the cerebral palsy he was born with. Mitte spent 13 hours a day on the set, which left no time to attend regular high school; however, the production companies Sony and AMC provided a tutor to help with his high school education.
