Kyle Massey
Kyle Orlando Massey was born on August 28, 1991, in Atlanta, Georgia. His first acting job was in "The Wizard of Oz," but his big break came after he was cast in the popular Disney sitcom That's So Raven, where he starred as Cory, the mischievous, money-obsessed brother of the main character, Raven-Symoné...
“ As Cory. Cory is the protagonist of the series. A teenager, Cory lives with his dad Victor Baxter and is best friends with Newt Livingston, and Meena Paroom, on whom he had a crush on. But later admitted that he and Meena were just friends and said "Being friends feels, just right". Cory often is irritated with the President's daughter Sophie Martinez, because of her two-facedness, and also with Candy Smiles, as she keeps calling him "C-Bear". He usually looks to his dad for advice. Cory occasionally cooks up various "get-rich-quick" schemes, all of which end badly. He plays the drums and has a great sense of rhythm, which is why he is part of the band DC3 founded by Newt, Cory, and Meena. His catchphrases in this series are "Coming Daddy!","You Know How I Do.","Dang!” and "Daddy No!". Cory is similar to his big sister Raven Baxter (from That's So Raven) and they both are always getting into some crazy situation, but in the end they find a way out of it. When he was much younger he played the same role in "That's So Raven", though there is a notable difference in portrayal, as younger Cory was introduced as a minor annoyance and villain, while on his own show Cory is much more like his older sister. He will do anything in order to get money. He also loves Beyonce, who he thinks he will "marry" some day. In some episodes, in a humorous climax, Cory's trousers would fall down, revealing his underwear, usually with dollar-signs on them. ” - lowelllock

“ As Newton "Newt" Livingston III. Newt is the son of a senator and the Chief Justice, he is the best friend of Meena Paroom and Cory Baxter. He is a bit clueless and he loves rock and roll. He also has some similar characteristics as Raven's friend Chelsea Daniels, (from That's So Raven) and Cory's friend Larry. He loves to say, "Awesome!" at something that is not really 'awesome', like when the school students were getting flu shots. Somehow, he is not smart enough to figure out obvious things, yet he has the knowledge to solve confusing things. He plays the guitar (his favorite being a Squier Stratocaster), and is part of DC3. He also knows about Cory's crush on Meena. He appears to use jeans and chains whenever he is not in any particular costume. He is funny and immature. Sophie once had a crush on him. He is like Chelsea because he doesn't really notice the obvious and is really friendly. He also hates the idea of running for student body president, as he doesn't think he'll make a good leader, and it would totally throw off his care free life style, despite his parent's wanting him to. Even worse is that if he did run for student body president he says he would win even though he wouldn't try thanks to "the Livingston Curse" a curse meaning that a Livingston will win no matter what(though many people would take that as a blessing). Between his parents, his fear of leadership, and the Livingston Curse, Newt has been forced (though he enjoys it) to make up excuses for his parents as to why he can't run for student body president, naming the day of the year he makes them up "Excuse Day". It didn't work as his father had been attacked by a porcupine, and to Newt's "surprise" the water shooting thing didn't really happen. His guitar is a Cherry Flaming Red Fender that is tuned for rock 'n roll. ” - lowelllock
“ As Meena Paroom, who is the daughter of the Bahavian Ambassador, a fictional country containing cultural elements of India, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan and very similar to Bolivia. She likes to wear American clothing and to listen to rock music, which her father frowns upon. Jason Stickler, the son of the head of the CIA, is obsessed with her to the point of spying on her constantly. Meena's father is very disapproving of Cory and Newt. In Ain't Miss Bahavian he once banned her from being near them because he believed that they had hypnotized her to disrespect their country. Her father later decided to let them still be friends after Meena came clean about the secrets she had been keeping. It's obvious that Cory has a crush on her, and he thinks she will like him back if he does nice things for her; however Meena sees them as just friends. Cory has been seen now to think of them just as friends as well. She has two different crushes in some different episodes, them being Craig Berkowitz and Nanoosh. Meena is similar to Eddie (from That's So Raven). They both have a love for music, and are the only gender of their group of three. According to Maiara Walsh, her Bahavian accent is a mix of Brazilian and Arabic. In one episode, it is revealed that she was taught to hate Dubinians because of an 800-year-old misunderstanding, but in the end, she forgave and forgot. ” - lowelllock

“ As Victor Baxter, who is the new chef at the White House. He is Cory and Raven Baxter's father. He often resolves conflicts between other characters although he often conflicts with Samantha Samuels. A running gag is that he often embarrasses himself by misinterpreting what people say to him. He also often says "I'll go pack..." when Cory gets in trouble, and another of his catchphases is "Here comes the pain...". ” - lowelllock
“ As President Richie Martinez, who is the President of the United States and Sophie's father. He always gives Cory some advice like in the episode "New Kid In Town". He often does his catchphrase by looking in the camera (thus breaking the fourth wall) and saying "The President of the United States". He also tries to be funny and tells jokes that are often humorless like in the episode "A Rat By Any Other Name" And in the episode "Nappers Delight". He often counts on his assistant Samantha Samuels in some cases like in the episode "Just Desserts" and the episode "I Ain't Got Rhythm". His actions as president are very serious although sometimes he may conduct in some childish behavior. He usually enters the scene whistling "Hail to the Chief". ” - lowelllock
“ As Sophie Martinez, who is the daughter of President Richard Martinez. She is a mischievous teenager who loves to annoy people, especially Cory. She has two best friends, Haley and Tanisha, who often competes with Sophie at random things, like class president. She is also known as "America's Angel" by all of America, but is really not one to Cory, she responds by saying her #1 catch phrase: "That's what they call me!". ” - lowelllock

“ As Jason Stickler, nicknamed "stickman" by himself, who attends Washington Prep with the characters and is the rival of Cory Baxter. He is also a classmate of Cory, Newt and Meena's, and has proved to be their enemy. Stickler has a crush on Meena and often disguises himself. He often challenges Cory, by humility, ways to win her heart, even though it's obvious that Meena has no feelings for him because he hasn't learned that he can't make her love him, it takes time for a friendship to grow. And in the end, he was always bested by Cory. His father is a C.I.A agent, that is why he has many gadgets. His father equips him with all the latest CIA technology. Jason often uses the CIA devices to his own benefit, although his plans usually go wrong. He is also sometimes seen with an 1980s-style haircut and is very proficient with the keyboard. His father is 001. He is a fan of Sci-fi movies and films. And much like Sophie, he's sometimes the antagonist and sometimes Cory, Newt, and Meena's friend since he and Cory had dinner together at the Purple Lobster after fighting over Meena on the bathroom ceiling and he helped Cory sneak the President (who was actually Burt Ponsky, the assistant manager of Cheese In A Cup) out of the mall and back into the White House and he helped Newt on his date and he needed Cory and Newt to be his friends since his robot was broken and he has been mentioned going to the movies with Cory, Newt and Meena. ” - lowelllock

“ As Samantha Samuels, who is President Richard Martinez's Personal Assistant. She is very strict and likes things fit to the President's needs. She hates Cory's schemes in which he tries to make money, which end up involving the President. Chef Victor affectionately describes Samantha as "overly stressed". She likes bird calls, and can do them better than the President. Samantha does however have a soft side which she showed to Sophie during her slumber party in "I Ain't Got No Rhythm" as it was her first one and she was ecstatic. Sophie sometimes assigns her to do her homework. It is revealed in The Presidential Seal that Samantha has heterochromia, when she said that she only had one grey eye. ” - lowelllock
“ As Candy Smiles, who is a girl who attends Washington Prep and has a 4.0 Grade Point Average. She hates the lack of pep in the school in the in Smell of School Spirit. She went out with Cory a couple of times and in "We Have No Chemistry" they share a kiss. She is also best friends with Meena and has a black belt in karate revealed in We Have No Chemistry. She also tutored Cory in Chemistry because he was about to go to summer school. She went out with a guy named Juan Carlos making Cory jealous in "Macho Libre". She has also been to Mexico and likes Mexican things. ” - lowelllock
“ As Tanisha Geoffrey, who is a bratty, spoiled girl who is one of Sophie's classmates. As claimed by Sophie, she is the most popular girl in her class. She has a similarity to Muffy's little sister, Buffy from the TV Show, That's So Raven. She is one of the Sunshine Girls with Sophie. Tanisha cheated her way to being class president by fake crying. She appears in several different episodes. However, in some episodes it can be questioned that Tanisha and Sophie are friends, even though at first she seemed like Sophie's enemy. In "I Ain't Got No Rhythm" she nearly left Sophie's sleepover because she did not like Samantha. ” - lowelllock
“ Haley Cho, who is one of Sophie's best friends, and somewhat high-strung. She is terrified of school or any kind of work.

Haley is a Sunshine Girl, like Tanisha and Sophie. She also really likes ice cream, and was part of Sophie's singing group "The Pink Cupcakes" along with Tanisha. ” - lowelllock
