Seth Cohen, the character Adam Brody played on the TV soap The O.C., transformed the concept of the teenage hero-hunk into something earthbound and relatable. Seth was snarky, vulnerable, and mordantly optimistic in a way that a generation of boyish men have been aping ever since. And at 32, the actor still fits the bill, geeking out about an upcoming role alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme ("I mean, JCVD!!!") and foot fashion ("I am obsessed with no socks!"). His slow build of a movie career fires up with six films in 2012, including the tragicomedy Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, in which Steve Carell confronts the mundanity of the Apocalypse. What would Brody do if he found himself staring down the End Times? "Heroin? It appeals to me more than, like, skydiving. Maybe doing heroin while skydiving?" Or—IDEA TIME!—how about an O.C. reunion movie, à la Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas? "Sure. That'd be funny. Put that." Oral contract, Brody. Consider this shit notarized.
