Khleo Thomas - Before Holes

Klheo Thomas was born in Alaska where his dad was stationed with the Army. Later the Thomas family moved to Southern California where Khleo began doing TV commercials when he was only six. Khleo Thomas decided to shorten his name for his acting career and picked Khleo (pronounced Cleo) because it was a combination of both his first and middle names - Khaleed Leon. Khleo Thomas landed a guest role on the T-NBC show City Guys and a role in the comedy movie Friday After Next before scoring the role of Zero in Holes.

Khleo Thomas - Lands Zero

Khleo Thomas auditioned three times for the role of Zero in the Disney hit movie Holes. First for the casting director, then for the director and finally he did a screen test (a filmed audition). Khelo didn't think he got the role because there were so many other kids at the screen test and no one seemed to pay attention to him. Two days later he got the part.

    This has to be one of the weirdest polls I have ever seen, they are two completely different things with two completely different audiences. They are not really comparable, kind of like apples and oranges.
