Standing 5-foot-3 and weighing 90 pounds, Germantown's Cody Hanford, 13, is small for his age.
He's smaller still in "Hounddog," the controversial film with Dakota Fanning that was shot in North Carolina in 2006, before Cody's recent 6-inch growth spurt.
Cody's size belies his show business experience and what casting directors say is his big acting talent -- a talent that in the past few years has put him in movies, taken him to Broadway and placed him alongside Radio City Music Hall's famous Rockettes.
Memphians who have missed Cody's many local stage appearances can see him Friday, when "Hounddog" opens at Malco's Ridgeway Four.
