Jones almost missed his audition for Kickin' It. After his agent sent out a tape to Disney, he and his mother flew out to Los Angeles to meet with casting executives but were three hours late because of all the flight delays they encountered. Splitting his time between Birmingham and Los Angeles, Alex lives with his parents and younger sister Alexis. An avid trivia buff, Jones enjoys singing and playing video games. He has made lots of friends on the set, but still keeps in very good touch with his friends near home. The person who started Alex career is Mr. Don Garette.
