Already a recognizable television star due to the tremendous fan base of Teen
Wolf, Posey has begun to establish himself on the big screen as well. In 2016,
Posey starred in Kevin Smith's feature comedy Yoga Hosers. In 2013, he
co-starred in the cult spoof franchise Scary Movie 5, alongside Charlie Sheen
and Molly Shannon, and in the indie film White Frog. In 2002, Posey starred in
his first two films: Maid in Manhattan (as Jennifer Lopez's son) and Collateral
Damage (alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger). He has established himself as a
sought-after young actor in both film and television.
Posey was born in Santa Monica, California, and later moved to Valencia, where
he primarily grew up. He started taking bass and guitar lessons at age 12 and
has been the lead guitarist in several bands. When he's not working, Posey likes
to pick up his acoustic guitar and play for hours, ride his motorcycle, or go to
Venice to skateboard with his buddies.
