Jacob Langston

played by Landon Gimenez


Jacob Langston is an 8-year-old boy with a sweet, sensitive soul. He’s discovered on a road in rural China, but wary and shy, and baffled by a world he’s clearly out of place in, Jacob is brought to local officials and then sent to the United States, where it’s assumed he belongs. After meeting Agent J. Martin Bellamy, Jacob is returned to Arcadia, Missouri to his much older parents, Henry and Lucille. They are both stunned and delighted to see their long lost boy, leaving many questions to be answered…


Landon Gimenez was born on Nov. 5, 2003 in Houston, Texas. The first three years of Landon's life were mostly spent in Texas Children's Hospital where he battled a very rare genetic disease. By the age of three, his health stabilized and he was able to start doing normal activities, like gymnastics.

By the age of five, Landon began to compete on a high level gymnastics team and continues to do so today. He has won many medals including a 5th place finish out of 200 competitors.

Landon also dances. He is a member of The Missouri City Ballet, where he has danced numerous performances including "The Nutcracker," "Swan Lake," and "Alice in Wonderland."

Naturally a performer, Landon felt the need to act and entertain. Landon is inspired by the work of Tim Burton.
