Adam Brody credits Amanda Seyfried with getting him the role of porn star Harry Reems in 'Lovelace'
Adam Brody credits Amanda Seyfried with getting him his part in 'Lovelace'.
The 33-year-old actor portrays porn star Harry Reems in the biopic of X-rated actress Linda Lovelace - played by Seyfried - and he believes his 'Jennifer's Body' co-star must have recommended him to the movie's producers.
He said: "I loved working with her in 'Lovelace'. We were both in 'Jennifer's Body' in 2009 as well. I think it was probably down to her that I got this job."
Brody - who is dating Leighton Meester - shot to fame playing Seth Cohen in US teen drama series 'The O.C.', and while he doesn't expect to revisit his alter-ego, he admits his comic book-loving character would be seen as "cool" following the recently flurry of successful superhero movies.
He added to Now magazine: "'The O.C.' was what I did instead of college. We had a lot of fun on that show. I don't think there'll ever be a reunion but I'm proud of it.
"People called Seth, my character in 'The O.C.', a geek, but liking comic books is cool now. Look at all the big movies based on comics, like 'Batman'. The definition of geek has changed a lot.
"I wouldn't go back to playing him though - that's in my past. I want to look forward. I still speak to Ben McKenzie, who played Ryan. Ben's a great guy. He's done really well."
