Life and career

Bobo was born in Roosevelt Island, New York[1] to an Orthodox Jewish family.[2][3] His mother, Denise Raimi, is a physical therapist and personal trainer (she played his character's foster mother in Choke).[4] He has a younger sister named Georgia. His great-grandmother was Tampa businesswoman and philanthropist Salha "Mama" Bobo.

His first film role was in the 2004 independent film, The Best Thief in the World. He co-starred opposite Christopher Walken and Josh Lucas in the 2004 drama Around the Bend, playing the youngest of a four-generation family. Bobo was subsequently cast in the big-budget fantasy film Zathura, which opened in November 2005 to a disappointing box office, grossing $28 million in the United States.[5]

Bobo's next role was in another independent film, Strangers with Candy, which opened on June 28, 2006. Bobo played young Victor Mancini in the film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel Choke. He has also made an appearance on 30 Rock as a paparazzo named Ethan. His most recent work was on Roosevelt Island in the play Suessical Jr. at the Main Street Theatre and Dance Alliance. He was also on episode 5 of Royal Pains.

In 2007, he began attending Camp Tranquility located in Earlton, New York. There he performed in the weekly performances, such as "The Wizard of Oz".
