Tim went on to become a semi-finalist on the inaugural season of The Four.
You might also remember, acting is nothing new for Tim Johnson Jr. Growing up, Tim got his big break when he was cast as Young Simba in the musical Lion King. And more recently, he played Jermaine Swallow in the comedy series Hit the Road on Audience Network. He also had minor roles in the movies Fist Fight and Pacific Rim: Uprising.

After mysterious visitors from the future specifically choose him to save the world, Josh’s character is tasked with preventing the extinction of humans. No small task!

And that’s not all! Tim has even more acting gigs lined up. Currently in production, he has a guest role on CBS’s new series FBI and will be on the big screen in The House Next Door, which hits theaters in October.
