For better or worse, Adam Brody
will always be remembered as Seth Cohen
from The O.C.
The affable and awkward teen is easy to find inside the weathered and wiser 37-year-old Brody, but the San Diego native might never be able to shake his early-aughts pop culture iconography. Despite that infamous role, Brody has had a pretty consistent career over the last two decades, playing opposite Brad Pitt
and Angelina Jolie
in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, being directed by famed playwright Neil Labute
and making guest appearances on beloved TV shows like House of Lies
and The League
. This month, he’s in the buddy comedy Big Bear

and The O.C.
