Life and careerEdit
Raised in Queens, New York, Jodi's parents are Kimiye (née Tsunemitsu), a showgirl performer of Japanese-American descent, and Lawrence K. Long, of Chinese-Scottish background who emigrated to the United States from Australia and had a career as a tap-dancing vaudevillian performer, and then later, as a PGA golf professional.
Having graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from the acting conservatory at SUNY Purchase, Long had roles in many feature films including Patty Hearst, RoboCop 3, Striking Distance and The Hot Chick. On television she appeared as a regular on such series as Cafe Americain, All American Girl and Miss March, all of which were short-lived. She also played a therapist in Desperate housewives. In addition to her credited roles, Long appeared uncredited in a brief black-and-white cut-scene in the music video for Bizarre Love Trianglr by the British group New Ordet, directed by American artist Robert Longo, in which she argues with E. Max Frye (where she emphatically declares "I don't believe in reincarnation because I refuse to come back as a bug or as a rabbit!").
On stage she appeared in the 2002 Broadway revival of Flower Drum Song, winning an Ovation Award for her performance during the Los Angeles tryout. Her parents, both of whom were vaudeville-style performers, appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show on May 7, 1950 as the singing, dancing, comedy act, Larry and Trudie Leung. They were the subjects of a documentary film, Long Story Short, which was directed by Christine Choy, an Academy Award-nominated director and written by Long. The documentary film won the 2008 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival's Grand Jury's Honorable Mention for a Documentary Award as well as the Audience Award. She is currently starring in Sullivan & Son a new series on TBS.
