Cody Longo

Interview with Cody Longo of "Hollywood Heights" on Nick Jr. 8/21/12

As Nickelodeon’s new series “Hollywood Heights” begins, its main character, Eddie Duran is just returning home from his first world tour. Yes, Eddie is a rock star. According to Cody Longo, the actor who plays him, Eddie is also simply a rock. The “rock of his family”, that is. Longo describes Eddie as being the emotional glue that holds his family together. “[Eddie] is very family-oriented and very true to himself.” Longo explains. This is a character Longo seems to have a lot of affection for and one who he loves playing.

 Longo, who has been an actor and musician since his childhood in Denver Colorado, is probably best known for playing the character Evan in the latest iteration of the “Bring it On” franchise, “Bring it On: Fight To The Finish” and the remake of the dance movie, “Fame”. He also played a young Tommy on the ABC drama “brothers and Sisters”.  All that being said, “Hollywood Heights” is a radical departure for the actor. Airing five nights a week, the filming schedule is incredibly demanding. Says Longo, “It’s like bootcamp. There are thirty-five to sixty-five pages a day of dialogue.” Longo adapted fairly quickly though, saying, “It’s a lot of work, but you get used to it.”

 No stranger to a strong work ethic, Longo grew up in family of hard-working artists and creative-types. Not only were his parents hardworking, they were also supportive of his creative pursuits. He says, “I come from next to nothing but my parents are firm believers in finding yourself… I’ve done everything in my power to do what I want… I want to inspire other people to do whatever makes them happy.”  So much does Longo believe in this that despite his grueling “Hollywood Heights” schedule, he still found time to pursue music. His band’s single, “Atmosphere” was released august 22nd and they will be going on tour in late 2012 or early 2013.

 In the practically nil spare time he has left, Cody still makes time to travel the states. He is especially fond of New York and Miami. He also enjoys, “hanging out at the beach and having a good time with my friends.” He says he also loves to play basketball and is “really big into spoken-word poetry.”
