Brady Corbet

Brady Corbet

Brady Corbet was born into a middle class family in the very un-Hollywood city of Scottsdale, Arizona. Growing up in that landlocked desert city, Corbet dreamt of one day having his face seen across movie and TV screens everywhere. With the ambition to become an actor firmly planted, Corbet relocated to California, where the promises of Hollywood stardom awaited him. He landed his first TV role in 2000 on the popular CBS comedy "The King of Queens," and shortly after landed his breakout role in Catherine Hardwicke's Oscar-nominated drama "Thirteen." Corbet returned to TV in 2006 after landing a supporting role on the fifth season of the acclaimed action series "24." However, after years of making a stable living as an actor of mostly commercial movies and TV shows, Corbet decided to focus on making the type of films he, as a viewer, wanted to see. With that in mind, he began working with revered directors Michael Haneke and Lars Von Trier on their acclaimed films "Funny Games" and "Melancholia." Corbet's work on these films proved creatively fulfilling, and allowed him to stretch his acting chops in ways he would have never thought imaginable. Over the next several years he continued working with acclaimed directors like Noah Baumbach on "While We're Young" (2015) and Ruben Östlund on "Force Majeure" (2014), which only further cemented his desire to make serious-minded dramas. Then in 2015, Corbet, who always had a desire to write and direct, released his directorial debut, "The Childhood of a Leader." That film, which is set in the waning days of World War I, looks at the young life of future world leader during one of the most horrific periods in human history. The film had its world premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
