Brian Austin Green (born July 15, 1973) is an American actor. He is best known for his portrayal of David Silver on the television series Beverly Hills, 90210, a role he played from 1990 to 2000. Green also starred in the sitcom Freddie and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Since 2009, he has appeared in a recurring role on Smallville as Metallo. Green is married to actress and model, Megan Fox.
Green was born in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California, the son of Joyce and George Green, who was a country and western musician. His middle name, "Austin," was added to differentiate himself from another actor when he joined the Screen Actor's Guild as a child. Green grew up in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, and attended North Hollywood High School, after attending the Hamilton High School Academy of Music.
Prior to his role on Beverly Hills, 90210, Green had a recurring role for three seasons (1986–1989) on the hit CBS prime time soap opera Knots Landing, playing the role of Brian Cunningham, the son of Abby Cunningham Ewing (Donna Mills). He reprised his role in the 1997 TV mini-series, Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac.
Producer Aaron Spelling has stated that Green was cast in the role of David Silver much because he felt that Green's own personality resembled the personality they wanted that character to have. The character was often scripted to reflect Green's own interests. As the series progressed the character began to experiment with hip hop music and being a D.J., as did Green himself.
Green appeared briefly in the multiple award-winning Showtime drama series Resurrection Blvd. as Luke Bonner, a police officer attending law school in 2001-2002. He appeared on the 2005 ABC sitcom Freddie, starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. before the program's cancellation in May 2006.
Green appeared in a horror short called Grace, which was set around a miscarriage gone bad, and features Gilmore Girls actress Liza Weil as his love interest. The short premiered at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors convention on June 2, 2006 and was reworked as a full-length feature film in 2009.
Green appeared in the recurring role of Derek Reese, the uncle of John Connor, in the first season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. As critics and fans responded positively to his performance in the role, Green became a series regular at the start of the second season. His character was killed in the penultimate episode on April 3, 2009. However, in the next episode, another Derek from an alternate timeline was introduced and would have remained on the show if it had been renewed.
Green guest-starred on the season 7 finale of CSI: Miami. Green has also been cast in The CW's new drama pilot Body Politic, along with Minka Kelly, Gabrielle Union, and Jason Dohring. The series has not been picked up for fall 2009. Green is also co-producer for a big screen adaptation of Fathom, starring Megan Fox.
On September 27, 2009, Green made a guest appearance on the television show Saturday Night Live in a skit involving girlfriend Megan Fox. In the skit Green played a version of the Transformer Bumblebee in which Bumblebee is merely a man wearing a Bumblebee mask.
Green was cast as Clayton on One Tree Hill's seventh season. Green then left the cast due to scheduling conflicts and the role was then given to Robert Buckley.
In Spring of 2010, Green began filming a movie called "Cross" which he is also producing.
Green dated Tiffani Thiessen in the early and mid-1990s. After their breakup, he met actress Vanessa Marcil, also on the set of Beverly Hills, 90210. Their son, Kassius Lijah, was born March 30, 2002. In 2004, Green began a relationship with actress Megan Fox. The couple were married in a small, intimate ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii on June 24, 2010. A replacement for Fox's original engagement ring costs an estimated $80,000 and her wedding band an estimated $20,000.
Green's home was burglarized by a group of criminals dubbed "The Bling Ring" in the media, whose leader was a teenager obsessed with owning the fashions of celebrities. They targeted Green's home because of the presence of Fox, but stole several other things belonging to Green during their raid, among other possessions.
