Early life

Jayne was born in Flushing, New York City on April 10, 1969. At the age of three, he was visiting his older half-brother Scott Jacoby on the set of That Certain Summer, for which Scott later won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor. The director needed someone to play Scott in flashbacks, and Billy was selected and began his career.

Scott and Billy have different fathers and therefore different last names. Billy's mom thought it would be best at the time for Billy to use his brother Scott's last name of Jacoby. At the age of seventeen, Billy changed his professional name to coincide with his birth name from Jacoby to Jayne. He has also done years of extensive voice work for cartoons and films.


Jayne was one of the most established child actors from the mid-to late-80s, starring in numerous guest appearances on famous TV shows as Trapper John, M.D., The Golden Girls, as Blanche's 14-year-old rebellious grandson, The A-Team, 21 Jump Street. He is also known for the role as Buddy, the brother of Terri in Just One of the Guys from 1985.

Jayne is most known for his role in the successful teen show Parker Lewis Can't Lose, starring alongside actor Corin Nemec. The show ran from 1990 until 1993. After the show ended he had smaller roles in shows such as Renegade, Murder One (1995), Walker, Texas Ranger (1996), Charmed (1999), Cold Case in 2009.
