MICHAEL EVANS BEHLING
Jordan Baker in “All American”
In The CW’s drama “All American,” Michael Evans Behling plays Jordan Baker, Beverly High’s quarterback and coach’s son, whose world is thrown off its axis when Spencer (Daniel Ezra) joins the football team and his family. Jordan relentlessly tries to fill the shoes and legacy of his father while balancing the demands of football, social pressures and a domineering father. It becomes a battle for approval where loyalty is tested, and tradition broken.
A self-proclaimed country boy, Behling was born in Columbus, Ohio and raised in Columbus, Indiana on ten-acres of sprawling land.
Growing up in the mid west afforded Behling the ability to participate in a variety of sports and after several years of hard work, it was no surprise that he earned an athletic scholarship to run track at Indiana State University. It was at Indiana State University that he discovered his passion for acting. After two years at Indiana State University, he withdrew to pursue an acting career and enrolled in acting class to perfect his craft. It was in 2017 that Behling booked a guest star role on “Empire” and would serve as the catalyst to catapult his career in television and film.
Behling has appeared in campaigns for Isotoner, Nike and Finish Line, Jordan Brand, True Religion, Reiss, and Kitson among many others. When he is not busy filming, Behling enjoys hiking and exploring outdoor activities with friends and family. He remains committed to animal welfare programs and is an advocate for mental health awareness.
