Cody Reed Kasch is an American actor best known for his role as Zach Young on Desperate Housewives.


Kasch was born in Santa Monica, California, on August 21, 1987, of Scottish descent. He was raised in Ojai on a working ranch, but when he turned thirteen, he moved to Camarillo with the rest of his family. This was because his older brother Max, also an actor, began to experience success in his career, and the brothers both competed for jobs. Kasch's parents were both also involved in the entertainment industry: his father Taylor was an actor and writer of locally premiering plays, while his mother Judy was a film director and photographer.

After making numerous guest-star appearances on TV shows, such as Criminal Minds, Kasch was cast in a regular role on the sitcom Normal, Ohio, though the series was cancelled after a few episodes. He next portrayed a Texan high school student in the Australian teen comedy-drama series Out There. Then, Kasch portrayed Zach Young on the ABC-produced comedy-drama series Desperate Housewives, which became his best-known role. In addition, Kasch narrated several audio-books.
