"I'm a big ham and I gotta be out there and doing crazy stuff for no apparent reason, especially on stage...," admits A.J. But then, one might have guessed that there was something was happening when he was a youngster in his very first acting job, A.J. brought the house down as Dopey in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In fact, by sixth grade, Alexander James McLean had appeared in 27 classics such as The Nutcracker, The King And I and Fiddler on the Roof. While attending junior high, A.J. won a part in Nickelodeon's High Honey, I'm Home and began an ongoing relationship with both Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel.
A.J. sang, trained extensively in dance, and took acting classes.
When he's not working, A.J., who's a skilled puppeteer, spends time cartooning, writing poetry that inspires his songwriting, playing basketball, volleyball and shooting pool. His take on the tracks of the Backstreet Boys' debut album? "In my mind, they're gonna be hits!"
