Leo also took part in Disney’s new prank show “PrankStar”, and had the opportunity to prank his biggest fan in a spoof involving a fake dojo and bizarre karate class.
And to round out his year, 14-year-old Howard was just profiled in “Black Belt” magazine where he talked about his career, family, social life, and what he looks for in a girl.
Now, Leo is back for a second season of Disney XD’s “Kick’n It” which launches its first new season showing on October 17th.
“The first season was a runaway success and Leo Howard quickly became the breakaway star. His fan base grew exponentially and it became clear that they wanted to see more of him. It was easy to order a second season after seeing the ratings of season one. Leo has become a teen idol.”
Leo, who has been performing martial arts since he was old enough to walk, has capitalized on his martial arts skills and turned them into a TV and movie career.

And Leo is no stranger to TV and movies.
In 2010 he starred in the hit movie “Logan”, and in 2009 he played the role of Snake Eyes in the summer blockbuster “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra”.
He also starred in Disney’s “Leo Little's Big Show” and “Zeke and Luther” before getting his role on “Kick’n It”.
The young star also has an impressive social media following on Facebook, Twitter, and his own official web site and blog.
Not a bad career for somebody who is only 14-years-old.
