Adam Brody

Plays Seth Cohen

Born and raised in San Diego, California, Adam Brody spent his teen years hanging out with his friends, having fun and surfing.

Upon graduation, he convinced his parents to allow him to attend college in Los Angeles. However, instead of enrolling in school, he hired a private acting coach, signed with a personal manager and soon landed the lead in the telefilm Growing Up Brady, playing Barry Williams.

Soon thereafter, Brody was cast as the lead character of Zack in MTV's series Now What? His television credits quickly grew, and they now include a recurring role as Coop in Once and Again, a recurring role as Dave in The WB's Gilmore Girls and guest-starring roles in Judging Amy, Family Law and Smallville.

Brody's feature film credits include Warner Bros.' Grind; the hit 2002 thriller The Ring; Holding Out Hope, opposite Edward Asner and Illeana Douglas; and Mr and Mrs Smith, starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
