Adam Brody Thinks Seth Cohen Didn't Survive The Last 7 Years

In the seven years since "The O.C." ended, Adam Brody has maintained steady work appearing in a number of movies and TV shows and became engaged to actress Leighton Meester, but he doesn't think the show's Seth Cohen would have fared nearly as well.

"If I had to predict, I'd say Seth Cohen is dead," Brody told Nylon magazine when asked what he thinks the character would be doing today. "I think he'd be going down to Mexico and probably had a bad car accident. It wasn't any fault of his own, but yeah, knowing what I know now about Seth and his poor decision-making, that's my guess."

With such a somber fate for his former alter ego, it made it much harder for Nylon to wonder what bands Brody believes TV's favorite emo kid would be listening to today.

"I mean, he's probably hanging out in heaven watching Jimi Hendrix and Lou Reed live," Brody offered up as a consolation. "He's probably getting the best concert ever!"

Well that's a silver lining, we suppose.

Correction: A previous version of this article stated it has been 10 years since "The O.C." ended. The show in fact ended seven years ago.
