Brody’s father is of Polish-Jewish descent; Brody’s mother – who was raised Catholic – was born in Budapest, Hungary, the daughter of a Catholic Hungarian aristocrat father and a Czech Jewish mother. Brody was raised “without a strong connection to” Judaism or Catholicism. As a child, he performed magic shows at children’s birthday parties as “The Amazing Adrien”. He attended the I.S. 145 Joseph Pulitzer middle school and New York’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts (famous as the inspiration for television’s Fame). His parents enrolled him in acting classes to distance him from the dangerous children with whom he associated. He attended summer camp at Long Lake Camp for the Arts in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. Brody attended the State University of New York at Stony Brook before transferring to Queens College for a semester.
Taking acting classes as a youth, by age thirteen, he appeared in an Off-Broadway play and a PBS television film. Brody hovered on the brink of stardom, receiving an Independent Spirit Award nomination for his role in the 1998 film Restaurant and later praise for his roles in Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam and Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line.
