Brian Austin Green (born Brian Green; July 15, 1973) is an American actor best known for his portrayal of David Silver on the television series, Beverly Hills, 90210, a role he played from 1990 to 2000. Green also starred in the sitcom Freddie and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. He was cast as Keith Watson on the seventh season of Desperate Housewives, playing the love interest of Bree Van de Kamp.
Early life 
Green was born in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California, the son of Joyce and George Green, who was a country and western musician. He is of Scottish, Irish, and Hungarian descent. His middle name, "Austin," was added to differentiate himself from another actor when he joined the Screen Actor's Guild as a child. Green grew up in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, and attended North Hollywood High School, after attending the Hamilton High School Academy of Music.
Prior to his role on Beverly Hills, 90210, Green had a recurring role for three seasons (1986–1989) on the hit CBS prime time soap opera Knots Landing, playing the role of Brian Cunningham, the son of Abby Cunningham Ewing (Donna Mills). He reprised his role in the 1997 television miniseries, Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac.
Producer Aaron Spelling has stated that Green was cast in the role of David Silver much because he felt that Green's own personality resembled the personality they wanted that character to have. The character was often scripted to reflect Green's own interests. As the series progressed the character began to experiment with hip hop music and DJing, as did Green himself. In 1996, Green dropped "Austin" from his professional name and attempted a career as a rapper, releasing one album, titled One Stop Carnival, produced by The Pharcyde member Slimkid3. In 90's he had a guest star on Growing Pains, Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Melrose Place, Saved by the Bell: The College Years, Fantastic Four, MADtv, Biker Mice from Mars, Malibu Shores, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac.
Green appeared briefly in the multiple award-winning Showtime drama series Resurrection Blvd. as Luke Bonner, a police officer attending law school in 2001–2004. He had a cameo on Hope & Faith where he met Megan Fox and they started dating in 2004. He appeared on the 2005 ABC sitcom Freddie, starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. before the program's cancellation in May 2006. He was a guest star on The Twilight Zone, Las Vegas (TV series) and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He also appeared alongside former 90210 cast member Ian Ziering in the Tony Scott film, Domino as parodies of themselves. Green appeared in a horror short called Grace, which was set around a miscarriage gone bad, and features Gilmore Girls actress Liza Weil as his love interest. The short premiered at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors convention on June 2, 2006 and was reworked as a full-length feature film in 2009.
He was a guest star on the hit show George Lopez (TV series) as Chris in 2006. Green was Derek Reese in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, a Resistance fighter sent to the past by the future John Connor. He is the older brother of Kyle Reese (John Connor's father) and paternal uncle of John. He knows Cameron in the future, but still does not trust her and becomes paranoid every time she's around, but throughout the series he begins to have a love–hate relationship with her. He is recurring in the first season but becomes a regular in the second season. Derek knows Jesse Flores who arrives from the future. He is killed by a Terminator while attempting to save Savannah Weaver. Another Derek from an alternate timeline is introduced in the series finale. As critics and fans responded positively to his performance in the role, Green became a series regular at the start of the second season. His character was killed in the penultimate episode on April 3, 2009. However, in the next episode, another Derek from an alternate timeline was introduced and would have remained on the show if it had been renewed.
Green guest-starred on the season 7 finale of CSI: Miami like Anthony Green. Green has also been cast in The CW's new drama pilot Body Politic, along with Minka Kelly, Gabrielle Union, and Jason Dohring. The series has not been picked up for fall 2009. Green said in an interview that he is also co-producer for a big screen adaptation of Fathom, starring Megan Fox. On September 27, 2009, Green made a guest appearance on the television series Saturday Night Live in a skit involving girlfriend (now wife) Megan Fox. In the skit Green played a version of the Transformer Bumblebee in which Bumblebee is merely a man wearing a Bumblebee mask. Green was cast as Clay in One Tree Hill's seventh season. Green then left the cast due to scheduling conflicts and the role was then given to Robert Buckley and he starred as superhero Callan in the Patrick Durham-directed movie Cross, which was released to DVD and download in May 2011.
Between 2009–2010, Green portrayed John Corben/Metallo in three episodes in Smallville's ninth season. His first appearance was in the ninth season premiere episode "Savior". In Smallville, he is a war time reporter, which is similar to the Silver Age John Corben. As a back-story for this version, he had been recently stationed in Afghanistan. When he meets Lois Lane, he expresses his distaste for vigilantes, particularly "the Blur" (Clark Kent). In 2010, Green appeared in a multi-episode story arc on the ABC series Desperate Housewives. He plays Keith Watson, who has a relationship with Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross).
In 2012, he had a guest appearance in the sitcom Anger Management and Happy Endings. In the same year, Green stars in the a new television series, Wedding Band, about a group of friends who perform at weddings. In the TBS comedy, Green plays Tommy, the frontman for Mother of the Bride, a group of four buddies who aren’t ready to give up the dream of being rock stars.
Personal life 
Relationships and family 
Green dated Tiffani Thiessen in the early and mid-1990s. After their breakup, he met actress Vanessa Marcil, also on the set of Beverly Hills, 90210. Their son, Kassius Lijah, was born on March 30, 2002.
Green began dating actress Megan Fox in 2004, having first met on the set of Hope & Faith when he was 30 years old and she was 18. In 2006, they became engaged, and then broke off their engagement in February 2009. Some time later in 2009, Fox was targeted by a group of fashion-motivated criminals known as "The Bling Ring", who robbed Green's home because she was living with him. Green and Fox announced they were engaged again in June 2010, and on June 24, 2010, the two wed in a private ceremony at the Four Seasons Resort on Maui. Fox and Green have a son, Noah Shannon Green, who was born on September 27, 2012.
Legal issues 
Brian Austin Green has criticized the paparazzi for the invasion of his private life with then-girlfriend Megan Fox (now wife) in 2010. Green said, "Megan and I so despise the paparazzi. We value our private life and our time at home. The last thing I want is to be ducking in and out of places because I'm worried about my picture being taken, especially when I'm with my son. When they follow me in cars when I pick him up from school, that's really crossing the line. I understand that they want shots of me with Megan, but we're pretty boring. They won't catch us out at clubs, getting drunk or being hauled in for DUIs. All they usually get is pictures of us leaving Staples or Target, or walking into a restaurant."
On September 17, 2010, Green stated, "It wasn't so much of a problem before Megan, but once Transformers hit, that was it. I had never experienced paparazzi on that level, because during 90210, they were still developing pictures and selling them by hand. It was a whole different experience. I hated being famous during 90210. I'm not an extrovert. I'm 37. I have a beautiful wife. I have an amazing 8-year-old son. I love acting, but this is just my job."
In March 2012, TMZ.com reported that celebrity photographer, Delbert Shaw, filed a lawsuit against Green and wife, Megan Fox, in Los Angeles County Superior Court for allegedly assaulting him after taking photographs of the couple while on vacation in Hawaii in 2010. In June 2012, Green claimed that he was simply defending himself against Shaw and that his wife should not be included in the lawsuit.
