Zach Braff

Biography: An adorably goofy actor, Braff was interested in entertainment from an early age, attending a performing arts summer camp and studying film at Northwestern University. He initially concentrated on theater and film work, landing a role in a stage production of Macbeth starring Alec Baldwin, and a handful of small movie parts in the 1990s. In 2001, he shot to stardom as a lovable but naive doctor on the zany hospital-set sitcom Scrubs. By the time Scrubs reached its ninth season, Braff starred in only a handful of episodes and took on a greater behind-the-scenes role, serving as one of the show's executive producers. Throughout the series' run he also directed several episodes, and made his big-screen directorial debut in 2004 with Garden State, a favorite of fans and critics, in which he starred, and which he also wrote. Off-screen, the native Jersey boy had a two-year relationship with Mandy Moore that ended in 2006; he was also involved with another actress, Shiri Appleby.

Off-screen, the native Jersey boy had a two-year relationship with Mandy Moore that ended in 2006; he was also involved with another actress, Shiri Appleby. He also had to deal with tabloid rumors that he was a womanizing party boy, claims he disputed during a 2006 appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman. In October 2009, a rumor about Braff's death was widely circulated on the Internet. Braff then posted a video on YouTube in which he blasted the originator of the rumor and proved that the story of his death was indeed greatly exaggerated. Expand
