True to form, this Libra celeb can play against type...

Zach Woods started performing improv at age 16, and has appeared in several films, including the satirical black comedy In the Loop. He's had lots of experience playing socially inept, awkward characters, such as Gabe Lewis in NBC's The Office, and Awkward Boy in the YouTube video series The Most Awkward Boy in the World.

And now he's bringing that talent to HBO's Silicon Valley as Jared, a character Zach describes as "maternal" - "a guy in his twenties who has the interior life of a mother in her sixties."

Don't be tempted to mistake Zach's onscreen personas for his real one. He may play characters who get mistreated, but this talented, savvy Libra knows just what he's doing. Some 17 million weekly viewers can't be wrong!
