He began acting when he was six years old, and received a B.A. in Theatre Studies from Yale University in 2004.[1][2]


Hobson appeared in The Hogan Family in the 1990s and in Malcolm in the Middle[citation needed] in the early 2000s.

In 2005, Hobson performed in the play North Beach, written by Bill Swadley and directed by Taylor Nichols. Billboard reported that his performance was convincing and skillful.[3]

In 2006, he performed at the MaCadden Theatre in Los Angeles in a retelling of The Madwoman of Chaillot as set in post-Katrina New Orleans. L.A. Splash wrote that the cast gave strong performances.[4]

Most recently, Hobson appears on The Fresh Beat Band as "Shout", the piano player and assistant leader for the band, which stars his character's three best friends, Kiki, Twist and Marina.
