Biography

With his easygoing demeanor and schoolboy charm, actor Cody Linley was certainly many a school girl's crush during the early period of his career. The preteen, who came from a family of actors, made his first appearances with small parts in such feature films as "My Dog Skip" (2000), "Miss Congeniality" (2000) and "Cheaper by the Dozen" (2003). Linley soon attracted the attention of Disney casting directors with guest work in an episode of "That's So Raven" (Disney Channel, 2003-07) and a supporting turn in the family feature "Hoot" (2006). That same year, the young actor instantly became a heartthrob to millions of teenage girls when he was cast as Jake Ryan, the on-again, off-again love interest of Miley Cyrus on the immensely popular kiddie sitcom "Hannah Montana" (Disney Channel, 2006-2011). In 2008, Linley danced his way to an even larger audience when he cut a rug on "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ) with the aid of two-time professional champion Julianne Hough. After "Hannah Montana," he turned up in a similar recurring role on the family sitcom "Melissa & Joey" (ABC Family, 2010- ). An accomplished comedic actor with a keen interest in music as well, Linley's options were many as he eyed the next step in his still young career.
