Adam Brody‘s engagement to Leighton Meester, 27, was announced on Nov. 20 — and while his fans may be heartbroken that he’s officially off the market, they may be simultaneously happy to learn a few new things about the actor! Did you know that he plays in a band, HollywoodLifers?
Adam Brody: 5 Things To Know About The Newly-Engaged Star
1. Adam isn’t just an actor — he’s a serious musician! He plays the drums for the band Big Japan. We’d go see him in concert!
2. Adam is Jewish, specifically a secular Jew. However, he has stated in the past that he “couldn’t be less religious.” So will there be a rabbi at the wedding? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out!
3. Adam dated a few girls before meeting Leighton. He dated director Lorene Scafaria, who wrote Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist, but they split in 2011. He also dated Rachel Bilson, his O.C. co-star, for three years until 2006.
4. He’s not just sexy — but he’s a sweetheart, too! He’s volunteered with the Young Storytellers Program, which develops literacy and self-esteem in young children.
5. He’s had a ton of movie and TV roles, but his wackiest may be playing Barry Williams (who played Greg Brady) in the 2000 made-for-TV movie Growing Up Brady.
