Biography

Actor Hunter Parrish never shied away from taking risks when it came to his career¬, even blowing off the chance to star in one of Disney's most successful movie franchises at one time. But those risks paid off when he won a career-making role on Showtime's critical darling, "Weeds" (2005- ), as a grieving teenager who is forced to abandon his insecurities and man-up after his father passes away. Parrish honed his natural comedic talents in films like "RV" (2006) as a geeky teenager on summer vacation and in "17 Again" (2009), where he played a high school bully. He also drew critical reviews for his portrayal of the only white student in an inner-city high school in the inspiring drama, "Freedom Fighters" (2007). But it was his role on the edgy series, "Weeds," that allowed Parrish truly flex his acting muscles and prove to Hollywood that he was primed for bigger, bolder roles.
