Josh Blake may be best known as Cousin Josh on the 1980s "my secret" sitcom Alf, about a sarcastic space alien hiding out with a nuclear family, but he was a child star pro, appearing in both movies and tv programs beginning at age 10. Usually he played kids who idolized older men:
His first starring role came in the short-lived sci-fi tv series Once a Hero (1987), about a newspaper comic superhero, Captain Justice (Jeff Lester), who breaks into the real world. Josh played a kid who discovers his secret.
After his year bonding with the alien (1988-89), Josh starred in The Famous Teddy Z (1989-90), as Ari, the younger brother who idolizes talent agent Teddy Z (John Cryer).
He could be seen in several gay positive projects, such as the MTV soap opera Spyder Games (2001).
