He went by the name of Dee Jay Daniels as a child actor and his real name is Dorjan Lyndell Daniels. Daniels is 27 years old now and after also starring in other shows such as In the House, Coach, The Wayans Bros, Grace Under Fire and Cold Case, things have clearly changed for him. Not only does he look a LOT different from the clean cut kid we all knew him to be on the show, but his life almost changed drastically in 2012. When he was 24 (in 2012), he got caught up in a really bad situation that landed him on trial for murder, fighting for his freedom.

This is the last place many probably would have thought a seasoned child actor, like Dee Jay, would have ended up, but unfortunately he did. Was it a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time? A matter of hanging with the wrong crowd? Or a matter of letting tensions escalate to the point of no return? We don’t know the answer to that, but turn the page and see the details of how Daniels ended up on trial for murder fighting and see how D.L. Hughley stepped in and got involved with his case…
