Robert Bailey Jr. stars in "The Night Shift" on NBC as Paul.

Robert Bailey Jr. was just 3 years old when Family Circle Magazine came to his preschool, looking for children to appear in an advertising campaign. He got the job over hundreds of other children and by age 6 he knew he wanted to be an actor.

The Minneapolis native's film credits include M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening," with Mark Wahlberg; Tom Shadyac's "Dragonfly," with Kevin Costner; Brian De Palma's "Mission to Mars," opposite Don Cheadle and Elise Neal; and William Arntz, Betsy Chasse and Mark Vicente's sleeper hit "What the #$*! Do We (K)now!?" In addition, Bailey lent his voice to the stop-motion animated film "Coraline."

Bailey played the title role in the Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm "Little John," directed by Dick Lowry and starring with Ving Rhames and Gloria Reuben. Bailey has also had starring roles in such telefilms as Robert Iscove's "Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of 'Diff'rent Strokes'" and Artie Mandelberg's "Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story."

Bailey had recurring roles on such series as "The Parent 'Hood," "Diagnosis Murder" and "Becker"; his appearances on the latter garnered him a Young Artist Award. He was a series regular on "Wanda at Large" and has guest-starred on "Criminal Minds," "Detroit 1-8-7," "Memphis Beat," "CSI: Miami," "Raising the Bar," "ER," "The Practice" and "Touched by an Angel," among other shows.
