Jake Short (born May 30, 1997) is an American teen actor, best known for his roles as Fletcher Quimby in Disney Channel's comedy series, A.N.T. Farm , and Oliver Bernstein-Quimby in Disney XD's fantasy series, Mighty Med , which got an ill-fated spin-off series with Lab Rats called "Lab Rats: Elite Force ." However, things turned around when Short pitched an idea to make the series better: A six-part crossover with ANT Farm. This crossover was so successful, that he, along with China Anne McClain , Sierra McCormick , Aedin Mincks , Bradley Steven Perry , Kelli Berglund , and Paris Berelc were asked to come aboard for a 20 episode spin-off. He also starred as Nose Noseworthy in the 2009 film Shorts and acted in many commercials. In August 2012, Short guest starred on TheFineBros YouTube channel on their web show "Teens React," where the teens reacted to the internet web series Salad Fingers. He sings with the musical group Counting Dayz, and appeared with Ross Lynch on the Kidz Bop 13 album. He would love to reprise his TV roles in a movie of Elite ANT Force , not counting the multi-part episodes combined as movies.
