Life and career[edit]

At the age of 13, Kaplan toured with Jim Henson's Bear and the Big Blue House Live! across the U.S. and United Kingdom for ten months. He also performed at the Los Angeles Stage Ovation Awards in 2004. He is a member of a comedy improvisation troupe in Los Angeles. Early in his career, he was the subject of a German filmmaker's documentary called "Hollywood Kids".

Kaplan's current focus is on television and film. He played Greg Grunberg's nephew in NBC's Grand Union sitcom pilot in 2005 and has appeared in several national commercials, including Wendy's restaurants, Yahoo!, Cingular Wireless, Simon Malls, Dairy Queen, and most recently, Honda. He can be seen in a recurring role as Chad the Chomper in Disney's Hannah Montana. In 2006, he also appeared in The Bernie Mac Show, CSI: Miami, and Zoey 101. In April 2006, he completed filming on Chris Elliott's semi-autobiographical sitcom pilot for CBS called "You've Reached the Elliotts" playing the star's son. He filmed his 3rd pilot (in less than a year) in September, 2006, as the son of actor/comedian/writer Tim Stack in the "Tim Stack's Family Vacation", a hybrid comedy (part scripted, part improv) produced for Nick at Nite. Kaplan was then cast as Brian in The Oaks, a high concept family drama series for the Fox network set for production in 2008, but was not picked up to series.

Kaplan was a recurring character on the Fox sitcom The War at Home, and made guest appearances on the Fox sitcom The Winner, The Riches for the FX network. He appeared in the Owen Wilson comedy Drillbit Taylor, and was cast in a leading role in Just Peck, a feature film which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2009, in which he plays the best friend of the title character, played by Keir Gilchrist.

Kaplan appears as Michael in the ABC Family sitcom 10 Things I Hate About You, based loosely on the 1999 film of the same name, which premiered July 7, 2009.
