Bodhi Pine Elfman (born Bodhi Pine Saboff) is an American actor, producer, writer, and director.


Elfman was born as Bodhi Pine Saboff in Los Angeles, California. His parents are Richard Elfman and Rhonda Joy Saboff. His grandmother was author Blossom Elfman, while his uncle is composer Danny Elfman. He began studying acting at The Beverly Hills Playhouse with future director and producer Milton Katselas. Starting a film career, Elfman had roles in films such as Mercury Rising, Collateral, Godzilla, and Armageddon, along with smaller parts in The Mod Squad, Keeping the Faith, and Gone in 60 Seconds. Elfman starred in the UPN TV series Freedom alongside Holt McCallany, Scarlett Chorvat, and Darius McCrary, and in Pirates of Silicon Valley alongside Noah Wyle and Anthony Michael Hall. He appeared in the short-lived, ABC-produced television series Hiller and Diller and guest-starred in an episode of Sliders. Elfman was also part of the recurring cast of Touch and guest-starred in the TV show Dharma & Greg, which starred his future wife Jenna Mary Butala.

In February 1991, Elfman met actress Jenna during an audition for a Sprite commercial. Four years later, they married on February 18, 1995. Elfman is of Jewish heritage, while his wife was raised Catholic. When they met, he was a practicing Scientologist. Jenna became a Scientologist after her husband introduced her to its teachings. As of this date, both are active Scientologists. Jenna credits Scientology with sustaining their marriage. In 2000, the two bought a 5,000 sq. ft. home in the Hollywood Hills for $4 million. Their first child, a son named Story Elias, was born on July 23, 2007. Their second son, Easton Quinn Monroe, was born on March 2, 2010. In 2012, Elfman and his wife started their podcast, titled Kicking and Screaming by Jenna and Bodhi Elfman.
