SETH GREEN
(Barry)

Moviegoers and television viewers have seen Seth Green's work for the past 23 years.  Green, who was named Best TV Actor by Entertainment Weekly magazine and proclaimed by an E! Entertainment Television poll as hottest young actor in Hollywood, is co-executive producing, writing, directing and doing multiple voices each week for "Robot Chicken," his series on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, while simultaneously working on new episodes of "Family Guy."

Recently, Green had the lead role in the sleeper hit feature film "Without a Paddle," and in 2003, he portrayed a technological genius in "The Italian Job."  That same year, Green worked on the independent movie "Party Monster."  Green won rave reviews for these projects, as well as for his starring roles in "Knockaround Guys," "Can't Hardly Wait," "America's Sweethearts," "Rat Race" and all three "Austin Powers" films.

Green was born in 1974 to an artist and a math teacher in West Philadelphia, where he grew up with his older sister.  Since his talents were evident at an early age, he signed with a manager who had him working the next day on an RCA/John Denver promotion.  Soon, Green was commuting regularly between Philadelphia and locations across the country--and he still graduated with honors from his school back home.

At age eight, Green landed his first film assignment, a role in "Hotel New Hampshire," with Jodie Foster and Rob Lowe.  At 12, Green starred in Woody Allen's "Radio Days."  He soon had roles in several feature films, beginning with "Big Business," playing Bette Midler's unruly son, followed by "My Stepmother Is an Alien," "Can't Buy Me Love" and many others.  Green was a regular in the series "Good and Evil," "The Byrds of Paradise" and "Temporarily Yours."

Green's first big role on television was when he portrayed Oz, a guitarist and sometime werewolf, on "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer" in 1997.  Since starring on "Buffy," Green has been the voice or lead actor in numerous critically acclaimed and successful television shows, such as the twice-canceled, animated primetime series "Family Guy," and as Jimmy Bender in the series "Greg the Bunny," alongside Eugene Levy.  In 2001, Green and his partner, Matthew Senreich, debuted their series "Sweet J Presents" on Screenblast.  The duo created and executive produced 12 "webisodes" utilizing stop-motion photography and are working in the same capacity on "Robot Chicken."

Green is based in Los Angeles.  His birthday is February 8.
