Adam Brody the California Kid

Adam Brody was born and raised in California. As a teenager, surfing, skateboarding and having a blast with his buddies was at the top of his to-do list, not acting. But when Adam Brody graduated high school, and convinced his 'rents to let him go to college in LA, acting was very much on his brain. Brody didn't actually enroll in college, but instead used the cash to hire an acting coach and signed with a personal manager.

Adam Brody Joins The Brady Bunch

Adam Brody scored a big break early on when he landed the role of Barry Williams (who played Greg Brady) in the NBC TV movie, Growing Up Brady, based on the '60s TV show, The Brady Bunch. After that, reoccurring roles on Gilmore Girls (Dave) and Once and Again (Coop) helped keep Adam Brody's name and face in people's heads.

Adam Brody Grinds

Adam Brody skated onto the big screen in the 2003 skateboard movie, Grind, playing Dustin. Although it may have been his first big role, it wasn't Brody's first movie role. Adam Brody had roles in The Ring (playing a teenager named Kellen) and American Pie 2 (his character was simply called High School Guy).

Adam Brody and The OC

Adam Brody headed back to TV-land and scored a sweet role on the Fox hit The O.C.

Their family takes in the "bad kid" from Chino, Ryan, (played by Benjamin MacKenzie). The show, which debuted in the summer of 2003, has become one of Fox's biggest hits.

    Ansel Elgort. I've seen The Fault in Our Stars twice already, and he's still adorable. Also, Nat Wolff and Logan Lerman.
