Bryan Greenberg is certainly in the prime of his career. With roles on TV and in film, Bryan seems like one to watch in the coming year. Plus, being completely adorable doesn’t hurt. Being that we are smack dab in the middle of Hanukkah Hotties week and Bryan definitely deserves to be on your radar, we’re named him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Press play on the video below to see more of Bryan, and then keep reading for more details about him.
Vital Stats: The 31-year-old grew up in the Midwest with his therapist parents. He attended NYU where he studied theater. And he’s a fitting Hanukkah hottie as he staged a production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat” during a stay at a Jewish summer camp.
Where you might have already seen him: He played Peyton’s love interest (sometime before Lucas), Jake, on “One Tree Hill.” He also played Uma Thurman’s younger lover in the very funny rom-com, “Prime.” Coincidentally in the flick his mom, played by Meryl Streep, is a therapist. Wonder if he used any real life situations as inspiration for the character? Then, he went on to play Nick, a writer who moves back home, on “October Road.” He also starred in the HBO series, “Unscripted” and appeared in “Bride Wars” as Kate Hudson’s brother and Anne Hathaway’s future love interest.
Why you should take notice of him now: Bryan is ready to star in the another HBO series, “How to Make It In America.” The show centers around a bunch of Brooklyn twentysomethings (Bryan, Lake Bell, MC Kid Cudi) as they try and make it in New York’s fashion world. The show is currently shooting in NYC and will begin airing in February. Mark Wahlberg is producing it. You know what they say: if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.
