He of hazel eyes and a warm, winning smile is one the hottest and #1 pin-up sex symbol in UK. He is none other than the young and very successful, Adam Brody. Born on December 15th 1979, in San Diego, California, Adam spent his pre-teen years swimming, surfing, and hanging out with friends.
Greatly influenced by 'I Know What You Did Last Summer', Adam decided to become an actor much to the surprise of his parents. Adam was determined to make it big, and his investments have paid him rich dividends. After graduation, Adam convinced his parents to allow him to attend college in L.A. But, true to his desire to make it as an actor, instead of enrolling in school, he hired an acting coach, signed with a manager and soon landed the lead role in the NBC movie-of-the-week, 'Growing Up Brady' (2000) (TV), playing Barry Williams (Greg Brady).Hollywood Calling
Adam was never the usual teen heartthrob. Nevertheless, he was a lucky and started getting acting assignments. He did small roles in TV commercials, pilots, and soaps, before he played Barry Williams. After looking at his performance in 'Growing Up Brady,' MTV picked him as the lead in the cult series 'Now What?' Adam also landed roles in other TV shows such as 'Once and Again,' 'Gilmore Girls,' 'Judging Amy,' 'Family Law,' and 'Smallville.'
Come 2003, Adam's acting career was about to change radically. Adam was picked to play the loveable and geeky Seth Cohen in 'The O.C.' Adam had truly arrived. 'The O.C.' cast includes Peter Gallagher, Benjamin McKenzie, and Rachel Bilson as well. Adam recently broke up with his girlfriend, Rachel Bilson, of over two years on 5 December 2006.
The success of Seth Cohen in 'The O.C.' pushed Adam to try his luck in Hollywood. His ever growing resume includes movies such as 'The Ring' (2002) a thriller, 'Missing Brendan' (2003) in which he played the dynamic lead as Patrick, 'Grind' (2003) a skateboarding movie and 'American Pie 2.' He has also worked with Hollywood A list stars, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in the movie 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith.' His other film credits include movies like 'Thank You for Smoking' and the upcoming 'Land of Women.'Trivia
