What is One Tree Hill’s Jackson Brundage doing today?

Ranked as one of the best teen TV dramas of all time by Seventeen, “One Tree Hill” explored many different themes spanning basketball, love, friendship, betrayal and of course the ever so chaotic lives of young teen adults who… trying to find their place in the world. After its premiere in 2003, One Tree Hill was undoubtedly an integral part of growing up for many of today’s American millennials. And while most of the cast — including Chad Michael Murray, who eventually walked away from the show — were teenagers transitioning into adulthood at the time, a few others were literally just beginning their lives. Take Jackson Brundage for example.

Brundage was introduced to the show in Season 5 as 9-year-old Jamie Lucas Scott – Nathan and Hayley Jamie Scott’s son – and quickly rose to become a fan favorite. Funny, adorable and smarter than his years, Brundage’s character has become a regular, appearing in a total of 99 episodes per IMDb. When “One Tree Hill” ended in 2012, Brundage was only 12 years old. So yeah, it’s no wonder fans are interested in what he’s been up to since then.

Jackson Brundage continued playing

In the years since One Tree Hill’s ended, Jackson Brundage has continued to pursue his acting career, albeit with a focus on television. Per IMDb, in 2012, the same year that “One Tree Hill” ended, Brundage landed a role on the sitcom “See Dad Run,” where he starred alongside veteran actor Scott Baio, who starred as his father. Not only did these two make us laugh on the show, Brundage apparently had a good time working with Baio. “Scott is so amazing to work with,” Brundage told Sweety High in 2013. “He’s really funny and supports all work and school through.”

His last acting credit came in 2015, but in Hollywood it’s not uncommon to see actors twirling around the director’s chair. Could Brundage make that leap? Possibly – if you can believe his words from 2010. When asked if he would be interested in directing in the future, the young actor told Hollywood, “Yes, I would love to do it. I can’t devote enough man-hours to it now, but I’ve provided ideas for the directors.” Well, it’s not certain Brundage’s interest in directing still exists, but whatever it is, he’d be pretty awesome. There’s no such thing as that Doubt!

Jackson Brundage is officially legal

It might be hard for you to picture Jackson Brundage as anything other than little Jamie Lucas Scott, but believe it or not, the young actor is anything but little these days. In January, Brundage turned 21 and shared the news the Gen Z way. “Today 21! Any alcohol recommendations?” he quipped on his Instagram Story (via E! News).

And even though “One Tree Hil” ended a decade ago, Brundage has apparently maintained a close relationship with his former co-stars. In 2020, the Daily Mail reported that the young actor received a birthday greeting from Barbara Alyn Woods — who played the role of Deb Scott on the show, his on-screen grandmother. If you scroll through his Instagram page, you’ll most likely see pictures of Brundage hanging out with some of the “One Tree Hill” cast members. It’s either that, or fans are raving about the actor’s glory. Well, if that doesn’t scream for close bonding, we don’t know what does!
