Nice To Meet You Brando Eaton

With appearances in various tv shows and movies I am sure many of you are familiar with actor Brando Eaton. Not sure how this talented guy got by my radar, but it was not until watching season 4 of Dexter on DVD that I was introduced to Brando.
Dexter's forth season was a mixed bag for me. John Lithgow's Trinity Killer was at times terrifying (when introducing his crimes, with his 10 year old kidnap victim and with his family) and at other times cartoonish and over the top (usually in his scenes with Dexter). I love the exploration of relationships in the tv shows I watch and hate saying this but Dexter sometimes needs more action and terror and a bit less relationship exploration, it is getting a tad repetitive.
The introduction of Arthur Mitchell's family was a highpoint of the season. This complex foursome was difficult to watch yet highly entertaining. Brando Eaton played Arthur's son Jonah who is on the verge on pulling away and turning the tables on his father.
24 year old Eaton has been acting on stage since the age of 5. At 18 he left home and put all his energy into carving out a career in Hollywood. He began on television in shows like Bionic Woman, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Journeyman, The Unit and Zoey 101. His looks and talent quickly led to bigger roles in Nip/Tuck, Secret Life Of The American Teenager and Dexter. Eaton's film work has included; Balls Out and Quarantine.
