Adam Brody is glad hit show The OC has come to a close, because he had no choice but to test himself in other roles.
The 27-year-old played SETH COHEN on the teen drama between 2003 and 2006 and loved his job so much, he admits he needed a push to seek fresh challenges.
He is now looking to make more movies after earning good reviews for his performances in THANK YOU FOR SMOKING and MR + MRS SMITH.
He says, "We all got on so well and the scripts were so good that we would've done it for years.
"This way we're forced out into the world. I can play new geeks now."
