Joshua Ryan "Josh" Zuckerman (born April 1, 1985) is an American actor.[1][2]

He is perhaps best known for playing Mark Cullin in the science fiction TV series Kyle XY and Eddie Orlofsky in Desperate Housewives.

He also played Max Miller in the CW drama 90210.[citation needed]

Life and career[edit]

Zuckerman was born and raised in Los Altos, California, where he attended Bullis-Purisima Elementary School. He moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career after finishing the seventh grade at Egan Junior High School, where he had been elected student body president.[citation needed]

He also attended The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California and as of 2003 was attending Princeton University where he was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Born into a family of five children, he began formally acting at the age of ten, with a series of roles at the nearby Los Alamitos Playhouse.[citation needed]

Zuckerman made his professional on-camera debut in 2000 opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Drew Carey in the Disney Channel's musical fantasy Geppetto,[citation needed] then enjoyed guest roles on the hit series NYPD Blue and Once and Again. Zuckerman's assignments continued during his enrollment as a student at Princeton University, though over time he began to increasingly emphasize big-screen work, notably with supporting roles in the Ben Affleck, James Gandolfini holiday comedy Surviving Christmas (2004)[citation needed] and the Evan Rachel Wood dark comedy Pretty Persuasion (2005). In 2008, Zuckerman appeared in a multi-episode arc, as Mark, on the ABC Family series Kyle XY. Later that year, Zuckerman signed for one of his first starring roles, as a teen who ventures out on a cross-country road trip, along with two friends, to meet a girl he's been chatting with online and lose his virginity to her, in the teen-oriented sex comedy-road movie Sex Drive.[citation needed]

He played Eddie Orlofsky, "the Fairview strangler" on Desperate Housewives. Zuckerman had a recurring role in the CW series 90210 as Naomi's love interest, Max Miller.[3]
