Early Life

Actor Seth Green was born on February 8, 1974, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Best known for his role as Scott Evil in Mike Myers' parody series Austin Powers, Green has established himself as one of the most popular young character actors in both film and television.

Green made his film debut as the ill-fated kid-brother Egg in the film adaptation of the bestselling John Irving novel The Hotel New Hampshire. Walk-on parts in several major television sitcoms followed and in 1987, Green was tagged to play a young Woody Allen in the nostalgic feature Radio Days.

But aside from the occasional television appearance, the mid-teens were slow years for Green. He won small parts in a number of movies, but few performed well with critics or at the box office.

Big Break
