R.J. MITTE - SPECIAL ADVISOR
Best known for his portrayal of Walter “Flynn” White Jr. for five riveting seasons of AMC’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning dramatic thriller “Breaking Bad,” RJ Mitte is an actor, model, advocate, and philanthropist who has carved out his niche in Hollywood by breaking down stereotypes and changing people’s mindsets with his easy-going demeanor and positive outlook. As Walt Jr., referred to by fans as “The Breakfast King,” Mitte acted as the cerebral palsy-afflicted son of Walter (Bryan Cranston) and Skyler White(Anna Gunn).
Walter Jr.’s cerebral palsy on the show was embellished, as he had to learn how to walk on crutches and slur his speech to create a more dramatic version of his own disability. R.J. recently co-produced and acted in Digital Ignition's film: Triumph, a true story, that is being distributed by Relativity Media. Through the combined efforts of Digital Ignition and RJ, the film was awarded the prestigious Ruderman Foundation Seal of Authentic Representation for diversity and inclusion in film.
Throughout the years, Mitte has been an inspiration to his peers around the world by championing his cerebral palsy in hopes of removing the stigma associated with disabilities. In order to bring awareness to his own issues with bullying and prejudice, Mitte has engaged in public speaking and serves as the official Ambassador for United Cerebral Palsy, WBC (World boxing council ) and partners with Shriners Hospitals for Children to spearhead their #CutTheBull campaign to advocate on anti-bullying measures. He’s also involved with SAG-AFTRA as a committee member of the union’s IAPWD (I Am a Performer with Disabilities) and is an active board member and President of his family’s legacy project, The Mitte Foundation.
