Kodi has followed in the footsteps of his actor father, Andy McPhee, and actress sister Sianoa Smit-McPhee. He has had many roles in film and television, but is best known for his performance in the 2007 movie Romulus, My Father, acting beside Eric Bana.

Kodi was originally cast in the role of Young Logan in the X-Men movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine,[2] however he was unable to film because of his work with The Road. In The Road, he appeared as the unnamed son of Viggo Mortensen's also unnamed character in the big screen adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name.[1] Kodi's performance in The Road has received mainly postive reviews from the critics.
