The Secret Life of the American Teenager
Mondays at 8:00 p.m.
After dreams of becoming a bull-riding astronaut subsided, Ken Baumann started acting at the age of 11 in New York and Texas. He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 14, and almost immediately landed a role as one of the leads in a pilot for FOX alongside Alan Ruck and Kristen Johnson, penned by famed playwright Nicky Silver. Most recently Baumann shot the independent feature “Springbreak 83” with a cast that includes Jamie Kennedy and Joe Pantoliano.
Baumann was born in Urbana, Illinois and grew up in Abilene, Texas, where his family still owns and operates a miniature horse ranch and wildlife rescue. Baumann is inspired by the work of Kurt Vonnegut, Albert Camus, Michael Haneke, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Bacon, James Brown, and Erich Fromm. He also loves writing, photography, music, and improv comedy.
