Frankie is a 31-year-old actor and racecar driver best known for his starring role as a young man on Fox's series Malcolm in the Middle.

Despite suffering the physical consequences of a prior back injury, Frankie has been doing everything in his power to keep up with rehearsals and challenging choreography.
