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 - 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.
