In a special one-hour episode, “He Could Be The One,” Miley repeatedly tries but fails to gently tell Robby (Billy Ray Cyrus) that she’s dating Jake Ryan (Linley) again. Soon, her dad winds up believing she’s trying to hide something from him. Now, to make Robby thankful for Jake, Miley pretends to date his bad boy band mate Jesse (Drew Roy) but gets in over her head so it’s up to Robby to help her listen to her heart.
Earlier this week, JustJaredJr.com caught up with Cody, 19, to chat about the special episode, his summer plans and his budding music career. Check it:
On writing new music: “I’ve written over 50 solid songs, and right now I’m just in the process of narrowing them down and deciding what I want to release. I take being an artist seriously, and I don’t want to release anything prematurely. I’m still doing the Ro and Co show with my friend Roshon [Fegan]. We haven’t released anything lately but yes, music is a huge part of my life. Songs that I’ve written all over the world this year will definitely be coming out, and I want to produce it with some of my close friends like Aaron Carter and some other producers. I’m just really trying to find a way to do it independently because I want to bring my true funk sound, and that would be a kind of acoustic soul mixed with funk.”
On Jake Ryan’s alter ego, Meelosh: “The character Meelosh was actually created by me. I went up to the writers room and they asked me if I could do any special accents, and it was right around the time Borat was coming out. But I had been watching The Ali G Show and (Borat impression) ‘They talk like this’ and they really liked it. That’s where I did a little improv. I don’t remember any specific lines I made up, but if you go back and watch Season 2 with the ice cream shop scenes with Miley where she’s putting ice cream in my mouth, I just started saying this random stuff. Oh my lord, it was so cold, I just started rambling. I guess Meelosh was Jake Ryan’s attempt at hiding, he’s kind of like Lola for Emily Osment’s character. He dyed his hair black and wore goofy clothes just to disguise himself.”
On his summer plans: “I’m actually going to Aruba on for the 4th of July, and then I’ll be going on a Disney cruise from the 10th to the 14th. Then I’ll be back in Los Angeles on the 15th. I’ve had an awesome year being able to travel and go on vacations throughout the year. I went down to Monterrey, Mexico about two months ago when swine flu went down and that was crazy because I was on the plane when everyone was wearing masks and I was afraid I wasn’t going to get back into America for a second.”
“He Could Be The One” premieres THIS SUNDAY, July 5 @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel!
