Adam Brody

Seth Morris

Portrayed by Adam Brody, Seth is Toby’s lifelong friend. Good-natured, confident, a little smoldering, with the deep pockets of a committed finance job and an enviable Williamsburg loft — Seth has never met a woman who doesn’t melt onto him. Re-summoned into Toby and Libby’s lives by the seismic event of Toby’s divorce, Seth’s confirmed bachelorhood is a comfort to Toby as Seth guides him through the dating world.
