He was born on 18 February 1992, Colorado, USA. He is an American teen actor. Logan Miller was born in Englewood, Colorado. Logan Miller played a teenage Connor Mead in Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Logan Miller has a role in an upcoming Disney XD series I'm in the Band (new Disney XD series), playing Tripp Campbell. He starred in the TV Movie The Norton Avenue All-Stars.

Imagine winning a contest to have dinner with your favorite rock 'n' roll band. That's how the journey to stardom started for Tripp Campbell, an average teenager with a love of rock music, in the new Disney XD show, I'm In the Band.

Tripp Campbell (played by Logan Miller) dreams of becoming a member of his favorite rock band, Iron Weasel.

Tripp, played by Logan Miller, is thrilled when the legendary rockers from Iron Weasel show up at his front door. But the teen has something bigger than dinner on his mind: He's determined to become the band's new lead guitarist. Tripp thinks he can make the "vintage" rock band popular again. He soon learns that the band has fallen on hard times over the years and that the three members are living in their van. So, the teen invites them to stay at his house.

With some help from his best friend Isabella "Izzy" Fuentes, played by Caitlyn Taylor Love, Tripp gets Iron Weasel to perform at their school assembly. The band is a big hit with the students, and Tripp becomes a full-fledged Iron Weasel member. He's more than ready to live out his dream as their new lead guitarist.

Role of a Lifetime
Just as joining Iron Weasel is a dream job for Tripp, playing Tripp on the Disney XD show is a dream job for 17-year-old Logan Miller. "[Being able to] play the guitar and act is great," he told TFK. "It's a chance to mix my two loves." Logan has played the guitar for eight years.

Would the actor want to be in a real-life rock band? "Of course!" he says. "I think it would be so much fun. You'd get to make good music all the time and have crazy, fun adventures. Who wouldn't want to do that?"

Two of a Kind
Logan says he relates to Tripp in several ways. "We're both outgoing, and he tries to have a good time," Logan explained. "He sets goals and tries to achieve those goals." As for the music, Logan says he listened to classic rock even before he got the part. "I was a big fan of 1980's music back in middle school. I listened to a lot of AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith..."

And what is the show's message for its audience? Says Logan Miller: "To follow your dream, do whatever it takes to get it done, aspire to something in life, and have as good a time as you can along the way." I'm In the Band airs Monday nights on Disney XD.
