Skylar Astin

Skylar Astin (full name Skylar Astin Lipstein) is an American actor and singer. He was born on September 23, 1987 in New York City to Jewish parents Meryl and Berry Lipstein. The Lipsteins raised him alongside his siblings Brielle, Milan and Jace in Rockland County. After graduating from Clarkstown High School North Astin attended Stagedoor Manor summer camp for the performing arts. He then enrolled in New York University studying at the Tisch School of Arts. Astin took a leave of absence when he was cast in the role of "Georg" in the Broadway rock musical "Spring Awakening." He was in the show for close to a year and during this time he filmed the movie "Hamlet 2." This led to him being signed to the United Talent Agency and moving to Los Angeles. Astin participated in a number of projects including a few failed television pilots until he got his breakthrough role in the 2012 film "Pitch Perfect" as "Jesse Swanson." He would go on to marry his co-star from the movie franchise Anna Camp in 2016. In 2013 he landed the lead role in the TBS sitcom "Ground Floor" which also featured Briga Heelan and Rene Gube. It was announced in 2018 that Astin would star in the final season of The CW musical comedy "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" as "Greg Serrano" taking over the role from Santino Fontana.
