Biography

Teen stardom cemented public opinion of Brian Austin Green as an early 1990s actor-turned-rap star wannabe, but in his later career, Green began to turn public opinion back in his favor with a string of well-received performances. Literally growing up on camera, Green worked as a child actor before Aaron Spelling cast him on the seminal "Beverly Hills, 90210" (FOX, 1990-2000) as David Silver. While his Tiger Beat looks, romance with Donna Martin (Tori Spelling), and real-life attempts at a music career made him something of a punchline in serious circles, Green worked steadily on television series as well as in TV movies before experiencing a later-career renaissance. Well-reviewed, adult roles on the sitcom "Freddie" (ABC, 2005-06), the action/sci-fi show "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (FOX, 2008-09) and the superhero drama "Smallville" (The WB, 2001-06; The CW, 2006- ) helped critics and fans reappraise Green, as did his famous, long-term relationships with raven-haired beauties Tiffani Amber-Thiessen, Vanessa Marcil and Megan Fox. Unlike many former teen idols, Green seemed poised to enjoy a second, successful act in his career and seemed content whether it did work out or not.

Bonus Trivia

.

'Austin' is not Green's actual middle name. Rather, it was chosen to distinguish him from another Brian Green already registered with the Screen Actors Guild when he became a youthful member.

.

"David Silver is the annoying guy nobody wants around, but they can't get rid of him." - Green quoted in Entertainment Weekly, Sept. 6, 1991

.

"I have fun flippin' the script from funky party type raps to straight-up raw street rhymes. For me being diverse keeps the flow hype and interesting." - Green in the Daily News, May 5, 1996

.

In March 2012, Green and wife Megan Fox were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by a paparazzi photographer, following an altercation between Green and the photog on the beaches of Hawaii in December 2011. The lawsuit claimed that Shaw suffered serious injuries, and that Green threw his iPhone into the ocean. He asked for unspecified damages.
