Eli Baker Lands Role in NBC Pilot!
BackBeat City is very excited to support the intense, creative efforts of Eli Baker.
Eli is 11 years old and has been involved in hip hop and the BackLash Show Choir at BackBeat City. You may have seen him in Casanova in NYC this winter, or at the Goodspeed in Mame last summer or perhaps in A Christmas Carol at the Hartford Stage in the winter of 2011. Eli recently decided that he had an interest in on-camera work and just booked a starring role in an NBC Pilot directed by David Schwimmer, produced by Jason Bateman, and written by DJ Nash. It will feature JK Simmons as his Dad and Parker Posey as his Mom. He has left for LA to film for the month.
“I can’t thank BackBeat enough for getting me started! Dreams really can come true!” — Eli Baker.
