An East Coast native, multihyphenate Kent Osborne (the brother of director Mark Osborne) graduated from Hunterdon Central High in Flemington, NJ. Osborne gravitated to the west coast in subsequent years, then made an early on-camera appearance as an actor in the racially charged youth drama School Ties (1992) (alongside Matt Damon and Ben Affleck). Almost a decade later, Osborne reemerged on the scene, this time as both an actor (Surviving Christmas, Open House) and as one of Hollywood's more offbeat screenwriters; scripting credits included the 2004 animated outing The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie) and the slice-of-life, "mumblecore" comedy Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007) (in which he also acted). In 2008, Osborne reteamed with Hannah stars Greta Gerwig and Joe Swanberg for a supporting role in the duo's co-directorial outing Nights and Weekends.
