However, he satisfyingly managed to overcome all the hindrances during this journey, thus ultimately emerged as a celebrated figure whose achievement has surpassed other actors of his generation.

Inherited Hungarian, Polish, and Jewish blood from photojournalist Sylvia Plachy and retired history professor Elliot Brody, he was born on April 14, 1973 in New York. Since the family's surroundings was known as not-too-good environment, his parents decided to put the boy into acting class in their effort to keep him away from the bad influence of his peers. When his love for acting gradually flourished, he then was encouraged to enter Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art & the Performing Arts while also attended a weekend program for young people at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. During this time, he was regularly involved in some off-Broadway productions, even encountered his screen debut in PBS' TV movie, "Home at Last" (1988).
