Sweet and lovable Boris seems like a typical 8 year-old kid – though in reality, he’s repressing the traumatic memory of having witnessed his father’s murder. But as Boris begins to recall the event, his emotional stability is threatened.
Eight-year-old Jakob Salvati is already making quite an impression in Hollywood, with credits that already include national commercials for Target, Nintendo Wii and Harley Davidson; television's Mad Men, Victorious and Til' Death; and the independent films Escape from Tomorrow, Behavior with Friends, Nickel or Dime, Gospel Adventures and Silent Killer.
Jakob was also featured in Unthinkable, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Carrie-Anne Moss and Michael Sheen, and the 2011 short film, Crescendo, that swept the film festival circuits, winning Best Short Film Awards from the Hollywood Film Festival and the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival.
In Spring 2013, Jakob will make his big screen debut in Little Boy, playing the lead, Pepper Busby/Little Boy, alongside Emily Watson, Tom Wilkinson, Kevin James and David Henrie. The film is about a young American boy struggling to achieve the impossible - to bring his father back from World War II.
