Our Event Host

RJ Mitte

RJ is best known for playing Walt Jr. on the Emmy-winning AMC drama Breaking Bad, – like his character on the show, he also battles with cerebral palsy. In addition to that star-making role, RJ has appeared on the big and small screen, captivating audiences on Showtime’s Weeds, NBC’s Vegas, Freeform’s Switched at Birth and CW’s Everybody Hates Chris. Throughout his rise to fame, his cerebral palsy has never deterred his drive to succeed or stopped him from doing what he loves.
