Actor Adam Brody is moving on after hit show THE O.C. - by growing a beard.
The actor, 27, admits he was forced to shave while playing pin-up Seth Cohen on the soap and now the show has ended he's looking forward to having a little hair on his chin.
He says, "I've had to shave every day for four years, and I've never been more excited to not shave.
"Granted, it'll be a pretty pathetic beard, but I'm going to give it my best shot."
