(Seth Benjamin Gesshel-Green)
February 8, 1974 —
Seth Green's first major role was as a young Woody Allen ("Joe") in Radio Days. Since then, few actors have had as wide a variety of roles:
Patrick Dempsey's younger brother in Can't Buy Me Love
Dr. Evil's estranged son in the Austin Powers films
A pathetic hip-hop wannabe in Can't Hardly Wait
A witch-dating werewolf in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
A hotshot starship pilot in the video game classic Mass Effect
Peter Griffin's idiot son on Family Guy
And yet, the Jew-dometer is stuck at 1.
This is a travesty. How can you have a name like Seth Benjamin Gesshel-Green (with parents Herb and Barbara for Hashem's sake), and choose all these vildechayas over nice Jewish roles.
Normally, this is the kind of snub we'd go all K2 over, but since Robot Chicken is all kinds of awesome (and there isn't a character in that list above that we didn't enjoy) we're letting it go.
