After guest appearances in 7th Heaven and Grounded For Life, Edwin Hodge returns to The WB in Jack & Bobby as Jack's best friend Marcus Ride, whose natural competitiveness puts his friendship with Jack to the test time and time again.

Born and raised on a military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina, Hodge moved to New York with his family when he was 3 years old. At age 9, Hodge attended a cattle call for what he thought was an audition for a commercial. Winning over the casting directors with his athletic ability and energy, Hodge was surprised when they announced he was cast in the Tony Award-winning revival of Showboat on Broadway.

Heading out to Los Angeles to continue his acting career, Hodge quickly landed a role in the Showtime film, My Teacher Ate My Homework, for which he received the Young Artist Award. Next up was a role as a young Marvin Gaye in The Marvin Gaye Story. Other television credits include guest appearances on Beyond Belief, Noah Knows Best, Any Day Now and King of Queens. He also had a recurring role on Boston Public for two years, playing a disturbed student who ended up getting convicted of a crime in order to protect his brother.

On the big screen, Hodge was most recently seen in the Dennis Quaid film, The Alamo. Hodge portrayed one of the battle's seven survivors who lived to tell the story. Other movie credits include Big Momma's House, Die Hard With A Vengeance, National Lampoon's Dorm Daze and Debate Club.

Currently living in Los Angeles, Hodge keeps very busy in his downtime. His favorite sports are basketball, rock climbing and bowling. He is also a motorcycle enthusiast and enjoys writing in his spare time. Hodge has two siblings.
