Corbin Bleu Bio

American actor, model, dancer and singer Corbin Bleu is probably best known for his roles in High School Musical, but he’s got many other sides to him, as well.


Out Of The Bleu

Corbin was born on February 21, 1989, in Brooklyn, New York. By age four he had already signed with Ford Modeling Agency and appeared in cereal commercials and department store ads. In 1995 he made his stage debut in an off-Broadway play called Tiny Tim Is Dead.

A year later Corbin, only seven years old, landed his first TV job: he had to play a character that needed a rabies shot on ER. He says he actually still remembers the scene, which he performed alongside George Clooney.


Teen Scenes

Fast-forward eight years to 2004, when a 14-year-old Corbin starred as one of the leads in a movie called Catch That Kid, playing computer whiz Austin. He followed that up with an even bigger film: Oceans Eleven.

One year later, in 2005, Corbin scored a starring role as Nathan on Discovery KidsFlight 29 Down. The TV series was about a group of plane-wrecked high schoolers; basically, the teen version of Lost.


Music & Movies

2006 was when Corbin’s career really took off. Sixteen years old, he landed the role of Chad Danforth, the BFF of Zac Efron’s character in the TV movie High School Musical. The Disney Channel mega-hit gave Corbin the chance to show off his singing abilities and rocketed him and his co-stars into superstardom, reaching over 100 million viewers in more than 100 countries around the world in its first year on air alone! The show’s soundtrack became the top-selling album of the year.

Being a part of the Disney Channel allowed Corbin to have a variety of acting experiences. In 2007 he became leading man of the show Jump In! alongside his very own real-life dad, David Reivers. As part of the series Corbin recorded a single for the show’s soundtrack called Push It To The Limit, which hit No. 17 on the charts. Taking his singing a step further, Corbin released his debut album Another Side in the same year; it peaked at No. 36 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.


Later that year a record-breaking 17.2 million viewers tuned in to the premiere of High School Musical 2. The sequel’s success meant a leap from the small screen to the silver screen for the entire cast for High School Musical 3: Senior Year. The movie opened in 2008 at No. 1 and made $42 million in its first week alone.


More Mature

Breaking away from his HSM sound, Corbin released his second album Speed of Light in 2009. He told MTV the songs were inspired by Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses and Luciano Pavarotti. Now he’s gearing up to release his latest acting venture in the movie Free Style, which is set to release on October 9, 2009. It’s a coming-of age story about an 18 year old guy (played by Corbin) who wants to win the Amateur National Motocross Championship.

First, you figure out which is the liar without asking any questions. Say something like, "I'm assuming that you are a guard, but correct me if I am wrong." If they say they aren't a guard, they are a liar. If they say they are or don't say anything, they are the truthful guard. Then, you can proceed to ask them which door is the princess and which one is the dragon.  "I'm assuming you are a guard" this could still be counted as a question. If you simply say "You sir are certinally a guard" then he will simply answer of course I am if he is the truthful guard. If he is the lying guard he with deny it. Your not wrong but, we don't want to take risks with our lives now do we.
