Jake T. Austin - He’ll play Jesus Foster, a charming and pragmatic teen who’s the opposite of his twin sister in the drama about a lesbian couple raising a family.

Jake T. Austin is jumping from Disney Channel to ABC Family.

The Wizards of Waverly Place alum has joined the cast of ABC Family’s drama pilot The Fosters, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The hourlong drama from producer Jennifer Lopez revolves around Stef (The West Wing’s Teri Polo) and Lena Foster (Rescue Me’s Sherri Saum), a mixed-race lesbian couple who are parents to a biological son Brandon (David Lambert) as well as several adopted children. When Lena decides to take in Callie (Maia Mitchell), a troubled teen with an abusive past, the girl’s disruptive ways threaten to turn the Fosters’ lives upside down.

Austin will play Jesus Foster, Mariana’s bilingual fraternal twin who may not be as book smart as his sister but is more sensible and pragmatic than she is. He’s a charming, hyperkinetic kid who’s on Ritalin.
The casting comes after Austin wrapped his four-season stint on Disney Channel’s original series Waverly, where he played Max Russo, one of three wizards, for more than 100 episodes of the series. He’ll reprise the role in the network’s upcoming special.
Bradley Bredeweg and Peter Paige (Queer as Folk) penned the pilot, which will be executive produced byLopez’s Nuyorican Productions. Simon Fields, Bredeweg, Paige and Greg Gugliotta executive produce the pilot, which is currently in preproduction for a November shoot in Los Angeles.

Austin, whose credits also include Law & Order: SVU and Drop Dead Diva, is repped by Paradigm, Principato-Young and CESD.
The pilot has already raised flags for anti-gay conservative group One Million Moms, which called on its members to protest the series for “attempting to redefine marriage and family by having two moms raise these children together.”

Flashing Back...

The first night Callie came to stay with us after she got out of juvie I thought a lot, mostly about the first night Marianna and I spent in the Foster residence. At dinner on Callie’s first night, when I saw the way Brandon looked at her without any worry as to why she may be there or for how long she was staying, I thought about how no one could really ask for a better brother. 

I flashed back to walking into the Foster house for the first time as a scared little boy with just his sister, surrounded by a wave of strangers trying to comfort us. After Stef and Lena talked to us a little about the rules of the house, we met Brandon. Right away he talked to us as if we had known him since birth. When Stef told him we didn’t have many toys he gave to me one of his Hot Wheels sets without hesitation and explained how bad he felt because he didn’t have anything to offer Mariana. I never felt worried in that home and Brandon was a big part of that. It was almost like Brandon didn’t know how to be selfish, he would do anything he could just to see someone smile. He never treated me like I was his lesser and he never mentioned how we didn’t come directly from the same place. I love my brother, and even though he can often be stupid and distracted he can never be selfish.

So when I saw the look he gave to Callie on her first night, I knew he was ready to accept a new sibling into his growing family. He was ready because he new, there was and always would be enough to go around.
