Brady James Monson Corbet (born August 17, 1988) is an American actor. Corbet is known for playing Mason Freeland in the film Thirteen, Brian Lackey in the film Mysterious Skin, Alan Tracy in the 2004 film Thunderbirds, and Peter in the 2008 film Funny Games. He has made guest appearances on many television shows.

Corbet played Derek Huxley, the son of Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland) new girlfriend, in the first six episodes of the fifth season of the television series 24.



Corbet began an acting career at age ten with a guest spot in an April 2000 episode of CBS' The King of Queens, and he followed it up with voice work in the English version of the Japanese anime series NieA under 7. Over the next few years, he was a regular on another anime series, I My Me! Strawberry Eggs (2001), and he guest-starred in a May 2002 episode of the WB sitcom Greetings from Tucson. He also appeared in a May 2003 episode of Fox’s sitcom Oliver Beene.

In 2003, Corbet landed his first film role when he was cast opposite Holly Hunter, Evan Rachel Wood, Nikki Reed, Vanessa Hudgens and Jeremy Sisto in director Catherine Hardwicke's Thirteen.

Following his big-screen debut, Corbet starred as Alan Tracy, the youngest son of a billionaire ex-astronaut (played by Bill Paxton) in Thunderbirds (2004), Jonathan Frakes' live-action movie based on the British TV series of the mid-1960s. Corbet once again shared the screen with Hudgens.

In 2004, California filmmaker Gregg Araki cast him opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the director's eighth film, Mysterious Skin. In the film, based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Scott Heim, Corbet portrayed Brian Lackey, a troubled teen who is plagued by nightmares and believes that he may have been abducted by aliens. The film debuted in that year's Venice Film Festival and had a limited release in 2005.


In 2006, Corbet returned to television with a recurring role as Derek Huxley, son of Jack Bauer's new girlfriend (played by Connie Britton) in the fifth season of Fox's Emmy- and Golden Globe–winning show, 24. Corbet most recently played the role of Watts in the 2011 psychological thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Corbet also has appeared in the indie rock band Bright Eyes' music video "At The Bottom Of Everything" (2005). In October 2006, he was featured in the Ima Robot video for "Lovers in Captivity," which was produced independently of their Virgin record label and was featured in an Out Magazine[1] article.[2]

In 2013 Corbet signed on to direct his first feature film.[3] As of 2014 it is in pre-production.
