Multi-talented Eddie Hodges appeared on TV, on Broadway, in the movies, and on records. When I asked him what he was doing today, he wrote: "I left Hollywood in the late 60's after being drafted into the U.S. Army during the Viet Nam war. After being discharged, I went back to Hollywood and became disillusioned with show business. I came back to Mississippi and entered college. After earning a BA in Psychology and MS in Counseling at the University of Southern Mississippi, I began working as a Mental Health Counselor, which I still do. I have gone back to Hollywood a couple of times, but not to work in films. I am still a member of Screen Actor's Guild, but I would be shocked if I was ever called to read for a movie role. I have chosen over the years to stay out of the limelight. I rarely hear from old friends from show biz days. I am divorced, have two grown children and two grandchildren. I still like to play guitar and write songs, and currently have a novel and an autobiography in progress.
