Adam Brody plays a suave businessman in Whit Stillman's wry comedy "Damsels in Distress" (opening Friday), but the actor will always be known for making geek chic as Seth Cohen on "The O.C."
Brody aptly summed up Seth's legacy in an interview with The Huffington Post. "I think he brought to a younger audience a Woody Allen-type sensibility, where you can be a nervous wreck, but if you're smart and funny, that can be an attractive person too," he says.
In honor of his forthcoming flick, we asked Brody to share his thoughts on pop culture, a subject on which Seth's savvy knew no bounds.
