Where is Max From 'Wizards Of Waverly Place' Now?

There must have been some real magic coursing through the set of "Wizards of Waverly Place" because all of the Russo kids seem blessed these days.

Alex Russo (Selena Gomez) is one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Justin Russo (David Henrie) just had a beautiful wedding, and Max Russo (Jake T. Austin), well Max got super hot.

Most people probably best know Jake T. Austin as the goofy younger brother Max Russo on "Wizards of Waverly Place." But Jake definitely does not look like Max anymore!

He went from this...


...to this!


Maybe Jake T. Austin was a wizard after all because he totally Neville Longbottom-ed puberty.

And Austin's been putting his bod to work by taking some modeling gigs alongside his career as an actor. He most recently starred in the first few seasons of Freeform's "The Fosters," and now is focusing on voice work as Blue Beetle in various "Teen Titans" iterations and the protagonist of the upcoming "The Emoji Movie."

You might have also seen the 22-year-old dancing across your TV screens on the previous season of "Dancing With the Stars," although he did wind up being the first contestant eliminated.


But the juiciest bit of info is (of course) about Jake's love life. In a move that will inspire obsessive celeb superfans for years to come, Jake is actually dating one of his fans!

Danielle Ceasar was just a regular girl who reportedly tweeted about her love for Jake T. Austin constantly, according to screengrabs from The Sun, and now she is living her dream and has actually been for real dating Jake for over a year now!

They still post lovey-dovey pictures together all over their Instagrams.


If that isn't a modern, celebrity-tinged Cinderella story, then I don't know what is! I guess magic really does just surround Jake T. Austin.
