UNT Fine Arts Series presents RJ Mitte
RJ Mitte played Walt, Jr., the son of the cancer-stricken science teacher-turned-drug manufacturer Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston), on the Emmy-winning AMC drama Breaking Bad. Like his character on the show, Mitte has cerebral palsy, although his is a milder form of the disability.
Beyond his acting, Mitte is involved with several organizations that raise awareness of equality and diversity. Currently, he is working with PACER’s National Center for Bullying Prevention on a nationwide campaign designed to educate those who see bullying, leveraging peer-to-peer support.
