The Buzz: From appearing in The O.C. and winning us over as Zach Stevens, then as the “evil” but lovable Cliff Wiatt in Hidden Palms, and as Grant Gabriel in Smallville, to sweet Charlie Hogan in Privileged, Michael Cassidy has shown more than once that he has what it takes to be a real leading man. We can’t wait to see what he does next.


Cassidy is perhaps best known for his role as Zach Stevens throughout the second season of the television series The O.C.; his character had an on-again/off-again relationship with Summer Roberts. Cassidy also has a role in the movie Zoom.

In 2005, Cassidy starred in a gay short film called “Dare”, where he portrayed Johnny, a popular high schooler, who has a short interaction with Ben, the “light boy” of the drama department.

In 2007, Cassidy played Cliff Wiatt in The CW television program, Hidden Palms.

Cassidy joined the cast of Smallville in the series’ seventh season, starring as the new editor of the Daily Planet, Grant Gabriel, a love interest of Lois Lane. In truth, he was Julian Luthor, the cloned and aged brother of Lex.

He is currently starring in the new CW show Privileged.
