Early life and education
Troy Garity was born Troy O’Donovan Garity Hayden in Los Angeles, California, to actress/activist Jane Fonda and activist/politician Tom Hayden, although it is noted in a law journal that his parents gave him the last name Garity, not Hayden as recorded in California Birth Index. He grew up in Santa Monica. His adopted sister is activist Mary Williams.
His parents named him for the Vietnamese resistance leader Nguyen Van Troi and the 19th-century Irish Fenian Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. His professional surname, Garity, is the family name of his paternal grandmother. He began acting as a child at Santa Barbara's Laurel Springs Camp for the Arts where he performed commedia dell'arte. He made an uncredited appearance in the film On Golden Pond (1981), trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and became a member of the Academy Repertory Company, performing in a number of stage productions.
Garity is the grandson of New York socialite Frances Ford Seymour and Academy Award winning movie actor Henry Fonda, who was named the sixth-Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. His mother is Jane Fonda, a two-time Academy Award winner, a two time BAFTA Award winner, and a recipient of the American Film Institute AFI Life Achievement Award. His father was Tom Hayden, an American social and political activist, author and politician, best known for his major role as an anti-war, civil rights, and radical intellectual counterculture activist. His uncle is Academy Award nominated actor Peter Fonda. His cousins include Bridget Fonda. His father is of Irish descent and his mother's ancestry includes Dutch, English, French, German, and Irish.
Garity has appeared in numerous film productions. He played his father in the film Steal This Movie (2000) based on the life of Yippie founder Abbie Hoffman. His portrayal of Isaac Rosenberg in the film Barbershop (2002) proved to be his breakout role, and he reprised it in Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004) and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) – though in the latter, his role is significantly reduced to a cameo appearance. He also starred as Harvey in the Danny Boyle/Alex Garland film Sunshine (2007) and as the tormented survivor of a tragic family accident in Lake City (2008).
In 1998, Garity was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People".
For his portrayal of Barry Winchell in the film Soldier's Girl (2003), Garity earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Miniseries or a Motion Picture Made for Television and in 2002 he won the Young Hollywood Award for a Standout Performance.
On August 27, 2007, Garity married actress Simone Bent at Columbia University's St. Paul's Chapel. Garity is the founder of the Peace Process Network, an international gang violence prevention coalition, and he is the chairman of Homies Unidos, a gang violence prevention group in Los Angeles.
