Kelley was born and raised in a western suburb of Chicago, Glen Ellyn, Illinois. He is the fifth eldest of 15 siblings (9 daughters and 6 sons), and was raised as a Lutheran.
When he was two, his mother took him and five of his siblings to Chicago to meet an agent. Kelley started appearing in commercials and gained his first role in a movie when he was in first grade. Due to his job, he was home schooled during his last two years of high school. When he turned 18, he moved to Los Angeles.
In 2002, he had a supporting role in Stolen Summer, which was a film made during Project Greenlight. He also played the role of Ryan James in two episodes of Smallville.
Kelley won an Independent Spirit Award for his performance in Mean Creek in 2004. Also in 2004 he played a lead role in the movie The Dust Factory. In 2006, Kelley appeared in the film Letters from Iwo Jima as a marine. He also played Roy, a great-nephew of Butch Cassidy, in Outlaw Trail: The Treasure of Butch Cassidy.
He played a leading role in the movie Prayers for Bobby alongside Sigourney Weaver, which premiered in January 2009 on Lifetime. In November, he played the role of Ben Tennyson in Ben 10: Alien Swarm. In January 2012, Kelley was in the TV movie Sexting in Suburbia, with Liz Vassey and Jenn Proske. In 2014 Kelley joined the cast of the MTV show Teen Wolf as Jordan Parrish, a young deputy whose supernatural nature sparked an ongoing media buzz as neither audience nor Kelley himself knows what sort of creature Parrish is but later found out that he is a Hellhound in the summer finale of season five.
