On September 5, actor Bug Hall will begin his three-night stint as Arthur Davidson in the new Discovery Channel mini-series, Harley and the Davidsons. While many may recognize Hall from the 1994 film, The Little Rascals, they may not know that he’s been booking steady gigs since playing the freckle-faced Alfalfa over two decade ago.
Read on to learn more about Bug Hall.
1. He’s Married to a Woman Named Porchia Stewart
Bug married Porchia Stewart in 2012. Earlier this year, he posted the above Instagram photo with a caption that read, “A good marriage is just a fulfilled friendship. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my friend.”
Based on the fact that Stewart does not appear in any of Hall’s Instagram photos (except for the pic of her hand above) and that she hasn’t been in any red carpet pics with the actor, it’s safe to say she’s succeeded at staying out of the public eye.
2. He’s 31-Years-Old
31-year-old Hall also played some roles on The Disney Channel. He starred in Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves as Adam Szalinski, and then in a Disney Channel Original Movie, Get a Clue, with Lindsay Lohan and Brenda Song.
In 2009, Hall was a part of the American Pie franchise, where he played the role of Rob in American Pie Presents the Book of Love. In a Youtube interview promoting the film, Hall described the experience as being “something else”. He said, “In my 17 years of doing this, this was one of my all-time favorites.”
3. He Played Alfalfa in ‘The Little Rascals’
Hall played the role of Alfalfa in the 1994 movie, The Little Rascals. He and his fellow cast members were extremely appealing to audiences, and collectively received the Young Artist Award for Best Performance by a Youth Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
After his success with The Little Rascals, Hall went on to play Eddie Munster in the Fox television movie, The Munsters’ Scary Little Christmas, for which he received a YoungStar Award (Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Made For TV Movie).
4. His First Name Is Really Brandon
Hall, whose first name is really Brandon (his parents gave him the nickname Bug) was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and is the second oldest child in his family.
According to his Twitter bio, he’s a self-described “Garage Philosopher”, and tends to Tweet some of these philosophies to his followers.
5. His Hobby Outside of Acting Is Riding Motorcycles
It seems that starring in Harley and the Davidsons is a perfect fit, because Hall loves motorcycles. Last year, he posted the above Instagram photo with the caption, “#ThrowBackMonday This was my first motorcycle accident in 2003. I’ve since had 7 more… you get better at falling.”
His Instagram includes the below pic as well, which is captioned, “Back in my hoodlum days.” Hall describes his role in Harley and the Davidsons as being the part of his dreams. He told People, “It literally brought me out of a mini retirement.” The actor got his first motorcycle when he was just 14-years-old, and for years, he spent his downtime cruising around on the bike. He told the news outlet, “I didn’t ever drive a car until a few year ago. I’ve been cross country 10 plus times. Then halfway across cross country 40 times or so.”
