In 2021, he starred as Billy in the blockbuster horror film The Black Phone alongside Ethan Hawke, and last year, he made TV appearances in both New Amsterdam and The Wonder Years, on top of a role in the film Fragile Heart. Jacob is also an accomplished guitarist and drummer as well as a stage performer, touring with Broadway's School of Rock for more than a whopping 300 performances across North America. Even though he's done it all, he's just getting started, and here's everything he shared about himself as our latest Man Crush Monday.
Name: Jacob Ian Moran
Hometown: Atlanta, Georgia
Birthday: June 2, 2007
1. Jacob's obsessed with planes. He's even training to get his pilot's license!
"Since I could walk, I had to go in every cockpit of every plane on every single flight. I have dreamt of flying a plane since I can remember. I flew with a co-pilot in a seaplane over Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho and I just finished building a flight simulator in my room."
2. If he could steal any character's fictional style, it would be John B from Outerbanks.
"Since binge-watching the show during the pandemic, I totally connected with his character and the boating, fishing and surfing lifestyle. You can't really beat that!"
3. The No. 1 thing on his bucket list is to see the world—every last country.
4. He's very much looking forward to his birthday this year on June 2.
"I am turning 16, and in addition to my plane and boating addiction, cars are also my thing. I basically love all motorized vehicles—anything I can sit in that moves. I cannot wait to get my car and drive on my own!"
