Date of birth: January 17, 1986
Hometown: Queens, NY

Education: Horizon High School in Scottsdale, AZ
Max has not only been acting all his life, but singing, too — so we only wish that Karofsky had started showcasing his pipes on the show sooner! Max was born in Queens, NY, but only lived there for a year before his family moved to Scottsdale, AZ. He was actually a member of the all-state choir in high school — along with earning a 4.0 GPA and serving as his senior class vice president — before he moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. Talk about an overachiever!
Though he started waiting tables once arriving in L.A., he was soon appearing in a slew of commercials — including one for KFC (and even an anti-meth PSA!) — and landed small roles on TV shows like Cold Case, The Defenders, and Ghost Whisperer. He appeared in the 2010 horror film Wolf Town, and will next be seen in the upcoming drama film Sweet Old World. Needless to say, we think his days of warning about the dangers of crystal meth are behind him.
