The Leading Man

Who is BAM?

Brandon A. McCall, a native of Birmingham, Alabama and a proud graduate of P.D. Jackson-Olin High School, is an actor and vocalist. He received his Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Alabama State University. Brandon is also a distinguished gentleman of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. 

Brandon started acting at the age of twelve. It was actually his mother's way of exposing him to something new and of course keeping him out of any pre-teen mischief during the school's summer break. Brandon began to perform with a youth theatre troupe, JCCEO YES Ambassadors, whose shows focused on youth related topics and situations. From the age of twelve to the age of eighteen, Brandon continued to perform with his theatre troupe where acting grew from just being a distraction from pre-teen mischief to now becoming a passion. It wasn't until Brandon's senior year in high school where acting became even bigger. During his senior year, Brandon's ninth grade history teacher stopped him in the hall and asked, "Mr. McCall, what are you studying in college again?" Brandon replied, "I'm majoring in Biology. I want to be a pediatrician." His teacher, with some relief, responded, "Oh good, because I didn't think that acting thing would work out for you." Brandon smiled, said thank you and took off to change his major to Theatre. That was the day that acting graduated from a passion and became a purpose.

Brandon made his professional debut at the B Street Theatre in Sacramento, California during his actor intensive. Following, he joined the Actors' Equity Association union and brought his talents back to his hometown performing with Red Mountain Theatre. Credits include Sister Act as Sweaty Eddie, Dreamgirls as C.C. White, Disney's The Little Mermaid as Sebastian, Smokey Joe's Café as Adrian Bailey and in Schoolhouse Rock with Birmingham Children's Theatre just to name a few.​ Brandon made his Broadway debut performing in Disney's The Lion King on Broadway as Simba. He is currently focusing on his career and journey in TV and Film so stay tuned!

Brandon gives all credit to God, above all else, for all of the wonderful blessings and opportunities that have been afforded to him. He is married to his college sweetheart, Denika Whitt-McCall. They have two beautiful daughters, Bréa and Briley. Brandon is blessed to have their love and support. Brandon is especially grateful for his wonderful mom, Josephine, and his lovely sister, Lindi—their love, wisdom, and encouragement throughout his entire life have been unparallel.  He credits them with nurturing his dreams from the start! Brandon is particularly grateful for his family, friends, and supporters!
