    BENJAMIN McKENZIE (Ryan Atwood on THE O.C.)

    Hard to believe this is Benjamin McKenzie's first starring role!

    As Ryan Atwood, the neglected, filled with angst kid from Chino escaping a violent stepfather and a drunken mother, he is adopted by the Cohen's and moves into an affluent neighborhood in the O.C. Instantly befriended by Seth Cohen, his adopted brother, he suffers through adjusting to this new “rich” life and dealing with the “rich kids”. An on-again off-again relationship with Marissa brings out his tendency to settle any problems with his fists.

    Ben on the other hand was born and raised in Texas, attended Austin High and graduated from the University of Virginia (like his father and grandfather before him) where he majored in Foreign Affairs and Economics. The oldest of three sons to poet-writer, Frances and attorney Pete Schenkkan, Ben moved to New York City after graduation and three weeks before 9/11 to pursue his passion for acting. He appeared off-Broadway in "Life is a Dream" at the Soho Rep. He also appeared in numerous productions at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, including "Street Scene" and "The Blue Bird," and at the University of Virginia, in "Measure for Measure" and "Zoo Story".
    He eventually moved to L.A. where he bunked down on a friend's sofa and got a couple of bit parts in JAG and The District before landing the role of Ryan Atwood in the O.C. almost exactly one year after moving to L.A.
    Real Name: Benjamin McKenzie Schenkkan
    Age: 28
    Birthdate: September 12, 1978

    -He followed his father and grandfather to the University of Virginia, where he graduated in 2001 with a degree in economics and foreign relations.
    -He changed his name for screen-credit purposes because there's an actor named Ben Schenkman registered with the Screen Actors Guild.
    -Son of Austin attorney Pete Schenkkan and poet-writer Frances Schenkkan
    -Moved to New York City three weeks before 9/11
    -While in New York he waited tables to help support himself and shared a bunk bed in a cramped apartment in the city.

She's been a newspaper reporter and editor, and in the 1980s she served on the Austin Planning Commission and the board of the Austin Child Guidance Center. She is a recipient of the Adele Steiner Burleson prize in poetry at the university. She and husband Pieter have three sons, Ben, Nate, and Zack.
    -He graduated from the same high school in Austin that the Bush twins (Jenna and Barbara) graduated from. He was a senior the year they were freshmen.

    Ben Picture of the moment:

    Yay new thread! I swear Kay- you, me and Hannah have been flying through them


    • #3
      A little thread inspiration:


      • #4
        Thanks for the new thread. We only got ONE wifebeater this season. It's bullshit.

        Kay your sig is making me so sad. I can't say goodbye to him, I can't. We'll always have Ben, but no one will ever compare to Ryan Atwood. NO ONE. He is one of a kind *sobs*


        • #5
          In honor of the thread title, I have made a montage.

          The Wifebeater: A History

          Season One

          ^The original wifebeater is not so white. Probably because it's from Chino, therefore it is dirty and poor and full of woe. Then the Cohens brought him new pretty expensive wifebeaters from SouthCoast Plaza

          ^Sad beater

          ^Anyone else notice that in that scene, it take Ryan like 5 minutes to get the beater over is head, simply so we can have the funny banter when Seth walks in on him?

          Season 2

          He's in Chino, thus the wifebeater is an obvious necessity to remind the audience that Ryan is poor again

          After being neglected for the whole first half of the season, the beater makes a come back in a time of angst:

          And continues to appear for the second half of the season thanks to popular demand.

          Season 3

          ^Sadie helped the beater make a brief comeback. That's why I like her.

          Season 4

          And sadly what may have been the beater's farewell appearance:

          For the last episode Ryan should walk around wearing the wifebeater, the hoodie, the leather jacket, and the wrist cuff and punch people all episode long... just for old time's sake

                Awww, I just...tears are forming for the wife beater. Beautiful beautiful Ben...and the wifebeater is just pricess. If the Cohens go back to see their house I wanna see Ryan/Ben go to the poolhouse and then like maybe of all the rubble that was poolhouse pick up like a wifebeater LOL. Hey, I can dream can't I :P?
