About Charles Baker


Charles Baker has left his mark in Hollywood and the homes of fans across the world as ‘Skinny Pete,’ a drug distributor that has been friends with Aaron Paul's character since high school, on the hit AMC show Breaking Bad, which has been nominated for 151 awards and has won 48. Before stepping on Hollywood soil, Baker already had 37 credits to his name and now has moved to Los Angeles permanently with his wife and two children to pursue his craft, which he has been studying for over 20 years.

A native of Washington D.C. and raised in Hawaii, Baker got his start acting in elementary and high school, always participating in school plays and musicals. During a stint as a member of a band in college, he overheard his bandmates talk about how he lacked any stage presence and he took it upon himself to improve and enrolled in acting classes. Years later, Baker can now be seen in a variety of television and film including Fox's The Good Guys opposite Colin Hanks, USA's In Plain Sight, CBS mini series Comanche Moon alongside Elizabeth Banks and Troy Baker, and the HBO television movie Temple Grandin opposite Claire Danes. Notable film projects for Baker include To The Wonder, a Terrence Malick film, opposite Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem and Ain't Them Bodies Saints opposite Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster. Most recently, Baker can be seen in the NBC series The Blacklist opposite James Spader as Spader’s confidante ‘Grey’ and the TNT pilot Murder in the First (2014) opposite Tom Felton and Taye Diggs.

Baker, who always seems to attract the gritty and dirty roles, is actually a family man at heart. In his spare time, he enjoys gardening with his wife and if you visit his backyard you'll find tomatoes, peppers, artichokes plus herbs like basil and oregano. Baker, whose father was a decorated Colonel has travelled across the globe including England, Israel and all over the U.S. Baker is also a classically trained musician who received a vocal scholarship for college. He holds CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) For Children, out of Tarrant County, Texas as an organization that is close to his heart for the work they do in appointing advocates for foster children going through the court system.
