Cody Kasch

Now in his second season with the ABC runaway hit, Desperate Housewives, Cody Kasch stars as the complex and enigmatic teenager Zach. As the series' budding young star, Cody can be credited with many memorable scenes central to the hit show's sometimes dark undertone. For his work as Zach, he earned a 2005 SAG Award for Best Ensemble Cast with his peers and a feature story in Emmy Magazine. In the Fall he will guest star as a young Nazi on the Emmy-winning series Law & Order: SVU.

An accomplished actor by the age of 18, Cody has drawn upon a lifetime dedicated to acting from his early years growing up in a theater family in California. As most kids his age were mastering video games, he mastered acting skills on stage with the Flying H Theater Company in Ojai. It was at the tender age of one that he appeared in his first film, Behind God's Back, and shortly thereafter starred in the feature film Show and Tell.

However it was through a solid body of theater credits, including Alice in Wonderland, The Outsiders, Wizard of Oz and Oliver, that Cody got his break into television: His work in the play God's Country caught the eye of a casting director who then cast him in his first national television commercial.

It didn't take long before Cody found himself working consistently. In 1998 he displayed a penchant for comedy starring alongside John Goodman in the sitcom Normal Ohio. Guest starring roles quickly followed on shows like ER, Nash Bridges, NYPD Blue and Boston Public. In addition, students across the United States recognize his voice from his work on the audio books Huck Finn, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Peter Pan.

Second to Cody's love of acting is a passion for music. Brother, a blues band comprised of his two brothers, was recently featured on Access Hollywood and can occasionally be heard live at The Roxy on Sunset Blvd.

Unlike the uptight Zach, Cody engages in art, the outdoors and athletics. As a qualified private pilot, he enjoyed his 18th birthday sky diving.
