At age 12 years old, Brady Corbet began his acting career with a guest spot in an April 2000 episode of CBS' long-running, Emmy-nominated sitcom "The King of Queens" and followed it up with that year’s voice work in the English version of Japanese anime series "NieA under 7." The next years, he was a regular on another anime series, "I My Me! Strawberry Eggs" (2001), and guest starred in a May 2002 episode of the WB's sitcom "Greetings from Tucson." He was also spotted as a guest in a May 2003 episode of Fox’s sitcom "Oliver Beene."
In 2003, Brady landed his first big break when he was cast opposite Holly Hunter, Evan Rachel Wood, Nikki Reed and Jeremy Sisto in director Catherine Hardwicke's semi-autobiographical film based on Reed's experiences, Thirteen. Following his big screen debut, Brady immediately secured his first starring role as Alan Tracy, the youngest son of billionaire and ex-astronaut (played by Apollo 13 star Bill Paxton) who finally saves the world in Jonathan Frakes' live-action movie based on the British mid-1960s TV series, Thunderbirds (2004).
Also in 2004, California filmmaker Gregg Araki cast him opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the director's eighth film, Mysterious Skin. In the film, based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Scott Heim, Brady portrayed Brian Lackey, a troubled teen who is plagued by nightmares and believes that he may have been abducted by aliens. The film debuted in that year’s Venice Film Festival and had its semi-wide release in 2005.
“The film ultimately isn’t about child abuse. It’s about subjectivity and how two people can experience the same thing, but come apart in very different ways. And I think that’s another thing that makes it less of an endurance test.” Brady Corbet (on Mysterious Skin (2004)).
Two years later, in 2006, Brady returned to the small screen with a recurring role as Derek Huxley, son of the son of Jack Bauer's (played by Kiefer Sutherland) new girlfriend (played by Connie Britton) in the fifth season of Fox's Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning show, "24." Meanwhile, he has appeared in the indie rock band Bright Eyes’ music video “At The Bottom Of Everything” (2005) and in the rock band Ima Robot’s “Lovers in Captivity” (2006).
Brady has completed director Matthew Buzzell's upcoming comedy movie, Sunny & Share Love You, and is currently filming writer-director Michael Haneke's English-language remake of the 1997 Austrian thriller, Funny Games. In the forthcoming film, which also stars Naomi Watts and Tim Roth, Brady will team with Michael Pitt playing the two malevolent young men who take a family hostage in their cabin. Funny Games is scheduled for fall of 2007 release.
