The gorgeous young Montana Jordan impressed everyone after joining the cast of “Young Sheldon” back in 2017 when he was just 14 years old.
Montana Jordan was born in 2003 and he is a rising star in the Hollywood world.
But it seems that there is one thing that especially draws the fans’ attention, other than his amazing acting performance!
If you take just one look at Montana, there is no way that you will not immediately think of the amazing Patrick Swayze.
Is Montana Related to Legendary Patrick Swayze?
Montana Jordan is not genetically related to the late Patrick Swayze, but given Montana’s acting career kicking off at a young age and his attractive appearance, we are hopeful that Montana can achieve similar success in the future.
Although Montana Jordan resembles Patrick Swayze, he also bears a striking resemblance to Heath Ledger. Some might say that his features are a blend of both actors.
Who is Montana Jordan?
Montana Jordan is a young, attractive American actor born in Texas, in 2003.
He became widely popular for his portrayals in “Young Sheldon” and “The Big Bang Theory” as Sheldon Cooper’s brother.
It’s interesting to note that Montana has a lot of talents besides his acting.
Montana started racing dirt bikes when he was just 5 years old. He also enjoys hunting, as well as playing guitar.
“Young Sheldon” revolves around Sheldon Cooper and his growing up, and this show could be considered as a prequel to “The Big Bang Theory”, where Sheldon Cooper (portrayed by Jim Parsons) is an adult scientist.
“The Big Bang Theory” and “Young Sheldon” are both created by Chuck Lorre.
The first show mentioned had 12 seasons with a total of 280 episodes, and the fans were heartbroken when the series ended after 12 years of filming.
Montana’s been a part of “Young Sheldon” since the beginning while portraying Sheldon’s brother George Cooper, and according to a TMZ source, he earns almost $18k per episode.
That means he’s earned close to $1.7 million so far since he was in all of the 94 episodes filmed.
We can all agree that this is an amazing start of his acting career!
Patrick Swayze’s life and career
Let’s be honest – everyone tried at least a dozen times to do the famous scene from “Dirty Dancing”, where Patrick lifts his dancing partner and holds her.
I remember my back hurting for weeks.
Patrick Swayze was born in 1952 and he had started his acting career back in 1979, with his debut role in the movie “Skatetown, U.S.A”.
From 1980 to 2000, some of his most recognizable appearances were in movies “Dirty Dancing”, “Ghost”, and “Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights”.
He was also a star in TV series “The Beast”, “North And South: Book I & II”, and “The Renegades”.
His last role was in a TV series called “The Beast” which aired in 2009, and he was the co-star of Sebastian Stan.
Swayze was diagnosed with cancer in 2008, and despite the chemotherapy’s success, his illness progressed to other organs in 2009.
He passed away in 2009 with his wife by his side, and he will always be remembered as one of the best, most wonderful, and emotional actors ever.
