Tyrel Jackson Williams – Career Highlights
The Naked Brothers Band (2005) Tyrel Jackson Williams plays Guitar Boy
The film features kids who appear to be 10 or younger. However, their characters are treated like adults in the corporate world. Combine this with the parody of pop-music history and the commercial music industry in general and the result is a lot funnier show than expected. Especially from a kid’s show. It’s not supposed to be a serious documentary. It’s like a kid-friendly version of Spinal Tap, and the film’s mockumentary format is appealing. If you take it with a grain of salt, you should be pleasantly surprised. Actually, anyone with an open mind can enjoy it, and the songs are unexpectedly catchy.
Failure to Launch (2006) Tyrel Jackson Williams plays Jeffrey
Tripp (Matthew McConaughey), is a thirty-five years old bachelor man that still lives with his parents, His parents, Al and Sue hire the manipulative interventionist Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker) to play Tripp’s girlfriend and convince Tripp to move out of his parent’s house. However, Paula and Tripp actually fall for each other, but best friends on both sides intervene and spoil the plan and the relationship. Failure to Launch is a silly and predictable romance. However, it still manages to entertain only because of the excellent cast. There is great chemistry among the actors and actresses of this movie. This is the glue that holds the interest of the viewer, in spite of an average and forgettable screenplay.
Lab Rats (2012-16) Tyrel Jackson Williams plays Leo Dooley
The notion of a research laboratory is given an outrageous and surreal twist by Chris Addison. He is ably assisted by a superb cast, each of whom contributes their own peculiarities to the mix. There were several times when I laughed out loud. Lab Rats has something unique about it that elevates it beyond the majority of sitcom muck.
Pants on Fire (2014) Tyrel Jackson Williams plays Mikey
This amusing film stars Bradley Steven Perry and Tyrel Jackson Williams. It is about a boy whose falsehoods become true. Let me begin by expressing that I appreciate this film because the main character, Jack, is unlikeable. As a result, when awful things happen to him, you can’t help but chuckle. You may argue that he deserved the majority of what was coming to him. A film that can both entertain and teach us an important life lesson is worth the time invested. Too many adults are rating this film….and that it is too late for them to learn the lesson of lying.
Tyrel Jackson Williams – Memorable Quotes
“We saw our older brother doing it when he was like four, so we were like we want to do the same thing before we even fully understood what it was. Around when I was 16 or 17, I actually consciously made the decision that this is what I wanted to do with my life. I was on my way out of high school and was working on a show that was about to end. Pretty much, I had been working through my high school years and was trying to figure out what I was going to go to college for. There was a bunch of ideas and lots of things I was interested in. So, I just kept coming back to some form of entertainment.”
“I enjoy making people feel something. Making people smile, making people laugh, making them not necessarily cry. Also, I enjoy being able to do something that evokes something in people, and I’ve sort of been gifted at being able to do that through acting. You see, I’m always in competition with myself when I act because I always want to be better than I was the day before. So it’s something that every single day I strive to get better. I strive to be able to do more and more and expand my toolkit every day. It’s that healthy, sort of addictive quality to anything positive.” – Tyrel Jackson Williams
“I remember when the first episode of the first season premiered. Me and my mom were in a hotel. We gathered around my computer [and] just watched the whole thing live. Every year, it’s something special. So this year, it’s the same excitement, but there’s a little bit of sadness. Our lives have gotten very, very different but like I’ve grown and learned a lot from playing Charles.” – Tyrel Jackson Williams
“I’ve been doing quite a bit of writing, screenwriting, and writing TV. Doing a lot of music lately. All things that I feel like I would have done if I was in college right now but without the massive student loans. The advice I would give to my younger self would be to stress less and try [to] focus on taking care of yourself more. Setting good habits and knowing when you’ve done enough. Keep an eye on yourself and know when you’re hitting your limit. In order to be able to move forward and live a sustainable life, you have to be able to at some point set work down over to the side. Focus on yourself. Do things that help to keep you healthy, happy, and focused.” – Tyrel Jackson Williams
