Actor Aaron Yoo originally aimed to be a writer, but had a change of heart after a summer Shakespeare workshop. He had to struggle with the Shakespeare, but loved the craft of acting, and moved to New York to learn and audition. He made his television debut in 2003 on the comedy series "Ed," and went on to appear in a number of shows like the police procedural "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "The Bedford Diaries." By 2006, Yoo had appeared in a few films in small roles. Then in 2007, he got notice in the independent film community with his role as the bi-curious schoolmate Heston in coming-of-age dramedy "Rocket Science," and broke through with his comedic turn as the zany best friend to Shia LeBeouf's potentially paranoid housebound teen in the "Rear Window" re-imagining, "Disturbia." The film was a smash hit, and in 2008 Yoo was working in independent films like "The Wackness" and in the mainstream gambling drama "21." Yoo has built a strong reputation as a character actor whose specialty is comic relief, appearing in a variety of films, from the romantic comedy "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist," to the horror remake "Friday the 13th," to the action thriller "Gamer."
