Finding a breakout role as an actor takes persistence. We know just how many hours of training, practice, marketing, and auditioning go into getting that casting call. That’s why, here at CGTV, we love to spotlight our graduates’ success stories. This month, we highlight a very talented rising star and CGTV graduate, Jackson Robert Scott.
How did Jackson Get His Start?
Jackson attended CGTV program from the age of 5 learning the craft of acting. He worked with actors from Nickleodeon and Disney as well as Adrian, the founder of CGTV. His favorite class was Improvizational Workshop.
It was a beneficial program and a start and foundation of his love for acting. It was such a positive experience for Jackson that he fell in love with acting and decided to make it his focus activity.
He was discovered by a top agency and manager from Los Angeles. The opportunities that he was given were amazing. He was able to audition for a multitude of projects on TV and film. His first project was a commercial for K Jewelers, followed by an episode of Criminal Minds, and Stephen King’s It remake where he will be playing the role of Georgie. Despite the fact that it is a horror film he had a great and positive experience on the set. Jackson really enjoyed being a part of this project. It was a team effort and he loved being a part of a team that created something exciting and special for everyone to enjoy when the film comes out in the theaters.
The tools that he has acquired during his time with CGTV and working on set will be useful in any career path that he decides to follow in the future.
Breakout Role: Criminal Minds
Jackson Robert Scott got his breakout role in 2015 on Criminal Minds, a prime time American TV series. Criminal Minds is a fast-paced crime drama about an elite squad of FBI agents who try to outsmart some of the nation’s most dangerous criminals before their next move. Scott was cast on Season 11’s fourth episode, Outlaw, as Cole Vasquez. The episode aired on October 21, 2015.
What is Jackson Robert Scott up to now?
Scott has been keeping busy in Hollywood! This past year, he was cast in the movie adaptation of Stephen King’s famous horror novel, It. Many know the story It as the original terrifying “clown” tale. Scott plays the role of Georgie, the younger brother of the story’s main character, who is the touchstone and starting point of the whole plot. It is now in post-production, and is scheduled to come out this upcoming year, in 2017. We will be watching for Jackson Robert Scott as soon as it hits the theaters!
By all accounts, this is an up-and-coming young actor to watch! Stay tuned: We’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of Jackson Robert Scott in the future!

Yesterday I booked Tina Hovhannisyn on a SAG Ross National Network commercial!
So now she is SAG eligible. Just wanted you to know, as I think she will continue to kick butt this year 🙂
Hope you and your beautiful family are happy and healthy!
TJ doesn’t like cheese at all (except for mozzarella on pizza) and he booked a commercial for Jarslberg cheese that shot on Friday. Theo used to tease him and say “what if you get a commercial and have to eat cheese.” You truly never know what will happen!
And, as it turns out, he had to eat the cheese!!! But, he did great. No complaints. All smiles. They finished his scene in less than hour (we waited longer than he worked). The director – who’s worked on movies like Jurassic Park – was very complimentary of TJ. He said “I knew he was a natural as soon as we started” and “he really knows his stuff.”
Proud of this kid….hope all is well on your end.

Thank you so so much Adrian and Hollywood CGTV because this wouldn’t have happened without your help! You changed my life!!!

My three kids, McKayla (10), Declan (6) and MacKenzie (6) attended CGTV in Summer 2015. After their showcase performance, each one got more than 5 callbacks by Hollywood agencies.
Since coming to L.A. in June, the twins have a Hollywood manager and all three kids have Los Angeles agents. It has truly been a whirlwind of events since finishing CGTV and now MacKenzie will be on Disney’s Best Friends Whenever as young Shelby. CGTV really inspires young talent and familiarizes them with the process in Los Angeles. Thanks to Adrian and the CGTV staff for an awesome experience.
I should send you a monthly update of all the jobs we get for CGTV Kids ha. Here is July 2014 Hailey Foss 🙂 Commercial just came out today.
Mann has been building a solid resume over the past few years with starring turns in “Project X”and “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” but he’s said to make a significant leap in this Indian Paintbrush production. Meanwhile, Cyler gets his big break here as Mann’s best friend, and if Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s film can strike a chord with younger audiences, RJ Cyler could find himself on the verge of stardom. Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”) co-stars as their leukemia-stricken classmate who changes both of their lives.
