Where is Nathan Arizona Jr. now?


Whatever happened to the baby (baby actor?) who played Nathan Jr. on the movie "Raising Arizona"?

This website says that he lives in Arizona, but nothing else.

Were the other babies in the crib his brothers or relations to him?

I wonder if he went to Arizona State? It seems that this person lives in anonymity, but it would be interesting to see what kind of person he turned out to be.

Where and how do studios hire babies for films? Do they rent them from the parents? Does the baby have to have a SAG union card?

I can't answer any of your questions, but here are some tidbits from IMDB. Don't know about accuracy.

IMDB lists the "quints" as played by 12 "actors", including two brothers and two sisters;

T.J. Kuhn as playing Nathan Jr;

Todd Michael Bogers, born 1968, as playing "Varsity Nathan Jr."

Same website, different page:

"Fifteen babies played the Arizona quintuplets in the film. One of the babies was fired during production when he learned to walk."


"Nathan Jr. doesn't cry at all throughout the entire movie. All the other main characters do at some point."

That's all I had time to look for. I cannot tarry.

I don't know about Nathan Hi Ed Glen Gale Nathan Jr., but the identity of the baby on the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind is known. I read an article recently; he seems to accept his place in cultural history.
