Prepare to have the Smart Guy theme song stuck in your head… or maybe you’ll be tempted to ask someone “What’s the sitch?” because we’re about to talk about the charming Tahj Mowry and his latest breakout show Baby Daddy, airing Wednesdays at 8:30 PM on ABC Family.
Tahj has been beloved by audiences – many of who have grown up right alongside the now 26-year-old – for years, with roles in TV shows like Smart Guy, Kim Possible, Full House and more as well as film credits like Are We Done Yet? and Bad Meat.
Now he’s adding another line to his family-friendly resume with Baby Daddy where he stars as Tucker Dobbs, the outspoken and absolutely hysterical best friend of bachelor Ben who decides to raise his baby girl, Emma, that his ex-girlfriend left on his doorstep. Tucker, who lives in an apartment with Ben and Ben’s brother Danny, may not be a part of the blood family – but along with Ben and Danny’s mom Bonnie and the girl-next-door Riley, he forms a new hybrid family that is ready for the challenge of raising Emma.
Tucker may not be the “baby daddy,” but he’s got an unforgettable role and I think that partially has to do with what Tahj, himself, brings to the character. There’s no doubt that audiences will fall in love with the show, Tucker and Tahj more and more with each episode. Even when he may make a few wrong or uninformed decisions… like we’ll see in the episode airing tonight, “The Nurse and the Curse,” when Tucker may accidentally shrink and destroy the lucky jersey of the very superstitious Danny.
I had the chance to catch up with Tahj in anticipation of the hilarious episode tonight – and all that’s in store for the rest of the season – and he spilled some great details about life on the set, insights into upcoming episodes, an upcoming dance battle and much more! Check out the video with Tahj below to find out everything he had to share:
