Birthplace: Newport Beach, California

Leo Howard starred in the magical movie Shorts and kicked butt as Young Snake Eyes in GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Kidzworld sat down with Leo to talk about what’s next for the young star.


G.I Joe

Leo makes his blockbuster movie debut playing Young Snake Eyes in GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. His scenes “set up the history between the two characters Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow” and if you’re already a fan of the series, Leo doubts you’ll be disappointed: “I think everyone was waiting for this movie and hoping it would be action packed—they sure got their wishes! What else can I say? It’s GI Joe!”


Leo was a big part of that action, but doing all his own stunts was a cinch with his extensive martial arts background. In between acting he focuses on performing with Sideswipe, “an extreme martial arts performance team that goes around the world performing for people,” Leo explains. “Everyone on the team is just like family to me.”


Shorts Big Shots

During the filming of Shorts, Leo shared the camera with some big names like Kat Dennings—“she was a blast to work with” and “has an awesome sense of humor”—and William H. Macy. “I always look up to an actor with as much experience as he has,” Leo says. “[William H. Macy] is a great guy and I tried to learn as much as I could from watching him.”


Talk Show Host

In addition to acting, Leo also hosts Leo Little’s Big Show, where he and his fictional sister film a show from their living room interviewing the stars of upcoming Disney BluRay releases. What’s Leo’s favorite interview so far? “I did like interviewing the dog from Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Chloe.”

    I saw the premiere before I left and I have to say, I was somewhat impressed. Of course it's not as good as BMW but I think they have good potential.

    I was very impressed by the first episode of Doctor Who I watched which I believe was called "Rose". It was creepy  but with enough of a hint of humor that it made for an enjoyable and interesting program. Me and my dad will definitely be continuing to watch more and more episodes of Doctor Who in the future.

    The answer, obviously, is Doctor Who. The show has technically been running for almost 51 years. It's  a British T.V. show about an alien with two hearts who has been living for over 1,000 years, with a time machine that can travel anywhere, or anytime, in the universe. But there's a catch to his machine, which is known as a T.A.R.D.I.S, (Time And Relative Dimension In Space): It is forever broken and disguised as a 1950's telephone box. He chooses not to fix it, despite the companions he travels with wondering to themselves, "Why doesn't he fix it? Why did he have to break it as telephone police box?" He also tends to attempt to keep the companions for as long as possible. They tend to keep him in check, safe, sane, and non-genocidal. After all, being 1,800 years old, and I'm just guessing precisely how old he is, can make you feel lonely, angry, confused, scared, and vengeful. He had to destroy his whole planet to protect the rest of the universe from being destroyed by his people and their age old enemies, the Daleks. He will forevermore remember that day, and as punishment, from the self concious weapon he used,will have to live through for a long, long time.
