  Biography  

 early life
Green was born and raised in Overbrook Park, West Philadelphia, a section of the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His parents are Barbara (née Gesshel), an artist, and Herbert Green, a math teacher. After his parents' divorce, he has stated that camp was a place where he could reinvent himself and be good at anything he wanted. This camp was called URJ Camp Harlam in Kunkletown, Pennsylvania. After a camp production of Hello Dolly, Green decided that he wanted to be an actor.

 career
  Early work
Green's first movie role was in the 1984 film A Billion for Boris. At eight, Green landed his first film assignment, a co-starring role in the 1984 film The Hotel New Hampshire with Jodie Foster and Rob Lowe. He appeared in the 1987 film Can't Buy Me Love, playing the part of Patrick Dempsey's character's little brother, Chuckie Miller. He also starred in Woody Allen's Radio Days as Joe, a 1940s boy, and appeared in Big Business and, in the same year, in My Stepmother Is an Alien, which also starred Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Alyson Hannigan.

In 1991 Green rose to fame in a Rally's "Cha Ching" commercial, which earned him an appearance at the 1991 Super Bowl. Green was given a key to New Orleans in honor of his role in the popular commercial.

Green appeared in the miniseries It , Infested (aka 'Ticks' - 1993), all three Austin Powers movies as Dr. Evil's son, Scott, and Enemy of the State and The Italian Job as a computer specialist. He was also in the films Can't Hardly Wait, Rat Race, Without a Paddle, Idle Hands and Sex Drive. Green also had a role in the 1992 film Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the scene he was in was subsequently cut.

In 1994, he starred alongside Jennifer Love Hewitt in the short-lived series The Byrds of Paradise. He worked with Hewitt again in 1998's Can't Hardly Wait, which also featured Paige Moss, who would later play with him in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Amber Benson was also in this film, but her scenes were cut in order to get a PG-13 rating.

Green appeared as Daniel "Oz" Osbourne, a werewolf, in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer during the second through fourth seasons, and one episode in the first season of the spinoff Angel. Seth is not related to Bruce Seth Green, who directed some episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. On occasion, some sources confuse the two and have credited Seth as the director.

Green has also been featured in roles on Greg the Bunny, Tucker, The X-Files, That '70s Show, Will & Grace, MADtv, Reno 911!, Entourage, Grey's Anatomy, Heroes and My Name Is Earl. Also voiced the character Joker in the game trilogy Mass Effect.

  Family Guy

Green went in to the casting of an animated television sitcom called Family Guy, created by Seth MacFarlane for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series centers on the dysfunctional Griffin family and stars MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mila Kunis and Mike Henry. Green primarily voices Chris Griffin, the teenage son, who is overweight, unintelligent and, in many respects, a younger version of his father, Peter Griffin; and Neil Goldman, a geeky and annoying neighbor. Green admittedly did an impression of the Buffalo Bill character from the thriller film The Silence of the Lambs during his audition. His main inspiration for Chris' voice came from envisioning how "Buffalo Bill" would sound if he were speaking through a PA system at a McDonald's.

After two episodes of the second season, Family Guy was taken off the network's permanent schedule and shown irregularly thereafter. The show returned in March 2000 to finish airing the second season which contained 21 episodes, all the cast came back for the series return. The third season contained 21 episodes and began airing from July 11, 2001 to February 14, 2002. During its second and third-season runs, Fox publicly announced that the show had been canceled at the end of the second season in 2002. In spite of the announced cancellation, in 2003 Fox decided to make the third season. During the third season, Fox announced that the show was canceled for good. The series was renewed later in 2005 for its fourth season due to strong DVD sales and its syndication on basic-cable networks. Once again Green and the rest of the cast came back for their voice works.

Neil Goldman is Mort's stereotypical nerdy son, who has an unrequited crush on Meg Griffin. He is the editor of the school newspaper and is part of the A/V Club. He is more confident than his father, so much so that he does not seem to realize that Meg has nothing but contempt for him. At one point in the series, both Neil and Meg become interns at Channel 5, and they share a kiss. Neil speaks with a lisp when he wears his retainer, but when he removes it, he speaks with a deep, smooth bass . Seth MacFarlane does his voice until Neil puts his retainer back in. He has made few appearances in the series in recent years, being absent entirely in the fifth and eighth seasons, and only making a silent cameo appearance during the ninth. "Peter's Daughter" and "Stew-Roids" are to date the only episodes since the fourth season where he has spoken.

Chris Griffin is the second child. He is fat, dim-witted, blond, and emotionally effusive. A recurring gag was that an evil monkey lives in his closet, which he found out was not evil in the episode Hannah Banana. He also tries to fit in with his peers but clearly doesn't, because he has the brains of his father.

  Later work
Green is a co-creator and producer of the stop motion TV series Robot Chicken, for which he does many voices and has even appeared in animated form. He also appeared as a cameo in the Fall Out Boy music video, "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race", and in "Weird Al" Yankovic's "White & Nerdy" music video. He made two appearances on The Soup in 2007 and 2008, using his first appearance to lampoon Internet celebrity Chris Crocker. He voiced the character Jeff "Joker" Moreau, pilot of the SSV Normandy, in the video games Mass Effect for the Xbox 360 and PC; and its sequel, Mass Effect 2 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. He will also reprise the role in Mass Effect 3. He is a producer of The 1 Second Film and appears in the "making of" documentary that accompanies its feature-length credits. Green is also the co-creator of the comic Freshmen, published by Top Cow Productions.

Green, along with Robot Chicken co-producer Breckin Meyer, appeared in the NBC show Heroes during the 2008–09 season.
In January 2009, Green worked with David Faustino for an episode of Faustino's show Star-ving – Faustino is often mistaken for Green.

On July 13, World Wrestling Entertainment's official website announced Green as the special guest host for the July 13 episode of WWE Raw, and on that night, Green competed in the main event, a six-man tag team match, which his team won by disqualification. He was also in attendance for WWE's biggest event of the year, WrestleMania XXVI on March 28, 2010.

 personal life
Green married actress Clare Grant on May 1, 2010; the couple lives in Los Angeles. They worked together on Robot Chicken, Warren the Ape, and her "Geek and Gamer Girls Song" viral video.
Green filed papers at Los Angeles County Superior Court in August 2011 asking a judge to legally shorten his name to Seth Benjamin Green "to reflect my professional stage name." The change became official on October 20, 2011.
