Whenever I’m explaining the concept of personal branding, I always end up talking about Jerry Maguire. Yes, before Tom Cruise jumped on Oprah’s couch and became the perpetual butt of Hollywood’s joke, he starred in one of my all-time-ever favorite movies. He played the title role, Jerry Maguire, a sports agent who has a breakdown breakthrough that leads to him leaving his cushy job and heading out on his own.

What exactly is a Plan B? The term represents an alternate road to travel, if the path you are taking is leading nowhere – a backup plan.

But is this stunt killing his career? The 19-year-old, who has played the role of Jake Harper since he was eight, urges viewers to stop watching the show - despite earning a hefty $350,000 per episode. According to Fox News, the actor said that he no longer wants to be a part of the show anymore, saying that it's "filth."
