Background:
This Disney Channel star is finally growing up — by joining the adult world of network reality TV!

An aspiring actor from a young age, Massey got his big break in 2003, when he was cast as Raven-Symoné’s cheeky younger brother on the Disney Channel show That’s So Raven.  Raven was such a hit that he got his own spin-off, Cory in the House, in 2007. And thus, a star was born.

Like every good Disney Channel star, Massey also has a Disney Channel Original Movie under his belt: In 2005 he starred in Life is Ruff, a riveting tale of adopted dogs and school dances. He recently snagged a short gig outside of Disney, on PBS Kids’ The Electric Company.

Disney has also indulged his dreams of rap stardom: he’s appeared on several Disney Channel soundtracks, and performs the theme song for Cory in the House. Add in dancing, and he’ll be a full-blown triple threat!

When he’s not trying to be the next Miley Cyrus, Massey takes after Tiger Woods: he’s won and placed in multiple golf championships, including coming in third in a White House Golf Tournament. He also likes to use his fame for good, often teaming up with brother Christopher Massey to perform at charity events.

Achievements and Awards:
Massey was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 2007. He’s also a StarPower Ambassador for the Starlight Children's Foundation, and he won first place at the National Minority Junior Golf Tournament in 2003.
