Jacob will appear as a guest cast member for three episodes, starting on April 29. He landed the role following the success of his dance, music and theatre show Big J Stylez.
He performed the one-man show at the Wellington Fringe Festival last year, and at Auckland's Herald Theatre. The show was created with Wellington theatre company Everybody Cool Lives Here, run by Producer Nic Lane and Artistic Director Rose Kirkup. The production was supported by the IHC Foundation .
"Jacob let us know early in our collaborations he had a goal to end up on Shorties. When he made Big J Stylez he really stepped into himself. Watching him grow and make this dream become a reality has been an epic and fruitful journey for all who have supported him,” says Rose.
