Jodi Long is an American actress of Asian descent.
Long was born in Manhattan and raised in Queens, New York. Her parents are Kimiye, a showgirl performer of Japanese-American descent, and Lawrence K. Long, of Cantonese-Scottish background who emigrated to the United States from Australia and had a career as a tap-dancer vaudevillian and later as a PGA golf professional.
Long graduated from New York's High School of Performing Arts, and she earned a BFA 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 Match, all of which were short-lived. She also played a therapist in Desperate Housewives and as "power lesbian" Patty in Sex and the City.
In addition to her credited roles, Long appeared uncredited in a brief black-and-white cut-scene in the music video for Bizarre Love Triangle by the British group New Order, directed by American artist Robert Longo, in which she argues with E. Max Frye.
