Little Ronnie from Role Models has whole new career 15 years on from iconic movie

Former child star Bobb'e J. Thompson has taken a different career path

The former child star who portrayed the precocious, foul-mouthed Ronnie Shields in Role Models 15-years-ago has a very different career now.

While it should come as a surprise to no one that child stars grow up, it’s always a little bit jarring to see them as adults and Bobb'e J. Thompson is no exception.

In the successful 2008 comedy Role Models, little Ronnie was played by Thompson AKA the ultimate scene stealer. The cast also includes Ant-Man star Paul Rudd and Dude, Where's My Car? actor Seann William Scott.

During the peak era of gross-out comedies, including the likes of Superbad, The Hangover, Anchorman, Step Brothers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Role Models told the story of two energy drink salesman ordered to carry out 150 hours of community service and buddy up with troubled youths.

Thompson won over filmgoers in Role Models after playing Stanley in hit Disney Channel sitcom That's So Raven, from 2004 to 2006.

Stanley was one of the best recurring characters in the iconic Disney Channel show. He was introduced as Eddie’s next-door neighbour who quickly become infatuated with the world’s favourite teen psychic after a chance meeting.

Despite his young age, Thompson landed every joke as the rude, obnoxious scammer that was Stanley.

Bobb'e J. Thompson is now a regular on Wild 'N Out.

The actor, who was born in Kansas City, Missouri, got his first taste of fame when he was just five-years-old, and appeared on Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge, where he performed 'Bow Wow (That's My Name)' and quickly won over audiences.

His impressive credits also include guest roles in My Wife and Kids, 30 Rock and Cory in the House. On the big screen he also starred in the 2007 Christmas movie Fred Claus and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl , with voice roles in Brother bear 2, Shark Tale and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Thompson is all grown up.

Thompson’s career has branched out into the world of music in recent years. As well as the occasional acting role, Thompson is now primarily a rapper and his bars have landed him a permanent role appearing on the improv comedy show Wild 'N Out.

Now 27, he regularly shares photos and videos of himself to his Instagram account where he can be seen in the studio, working hard on his music.

According to his IMDb page he has two upcoming projects; Generation Angst and A Family’s Fury.
