Seth Benjamin Green
"[...] Every day when I have a really important meeting with, like, ten or twelve gathered heads of department and I'm explaining in detail the difference between the 1982 Snake Eyes
and the 1984 Snake Eyes and how critical that's going to be for this skitů I just have to laugh."

Roles Of Note:
- Celebrity Voice Actor: Chris Griffin, Eddie Mcdowd, and Robot Chicken characters.
- Dawson Casting: Inverted for the Austin Powers films, where Scott Evil was actually about 5 years older than Green. But Green has almost always played characters younger than him, he was born in 1974, but his boyish looks keep him looking in his mid-20's, even when sporting a beard. Played straight for the TV adaptation of Stephen King 's It where he played an 11 year old when he was 16.
- Also in Can't Hardly Wait, where he played a high school student when he was in his early 20s.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Hidden Depths: In "Geek and Gamer Gurls" he shows he can rap.
- Jewish and Nerdy
- Method Acting: During the filming of Airborne, he stayed in character at all times and made the other actors call him "Wiley".
- Older Than They Look: Seriously. He looks at least 10-15 years younger than he really is.
- One of Us: Very much so; he's a huge fan of action figures. In fact, he was honoured when the Austin Powers toyline included a figure of Scott, as it meant that he now had his own action figure.
- Platonic Life Partners: Has been developing this sort of relationship with fellow Buffy alum Michelle Trachtenberg.
- Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: With his wife.
