Jacob Smith in Cheaper by the Dozen.

Jacob Smith was born January 21, 1990, in Monrovia, California is probably best known for his role of Jake Baker in the 20th Century Fox hit film “Cheaper by the Dozen” from 2003. The hit film shot Jacob to stardom and into the hearts of young girls.

Smith has no TV or film credit since he shot the pilot for the proposed series “Secrets of a Small Town,” the show never got off the ground and Jacob Smith has not graced the screen big and small. A year earlier he played Jake Baker for the second time in the sequel Cheaper by the Dozen 2.

Jake had a run of films starting with 1998’s “Nowhere to Go” and the fun “Small Soldiers” and also found time for episodic TV in series such as “Hyperion Bay,” “Step by Step,” “Walker, Texas Ranger” and a recurring role for 32 episodes of “Party of Five” as Owen Salinger among others. He also appeared on the TV films “Phantom of the Megaplex” and “Evolution Child.”

Jacob film roles continued with “Hansel & Gretel” (2002) and “Dragonfly” (2002) and a year later took off with the role in Cheaper by the Dozen, this made him at that time one of the top child stars of the day. He followed that up in 2004 with “Troy” and a year later the sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen.

Not much is known publicly about Jacob since he last appeared in a TV or film role but contrary to some reports Jake is alive and well and I supposed right where he wants to be. Cheaper by the Dozen, Troy and his guest spot on Without a Trace made Jacob Smith one of the top child stars from 2003 to 2006.
