Kennedy has been named one of E! Entertainment's "Hot Faces of Fall," featured as one of Zap2It's "Underrated TV Stars of 2011" and adorned TV Guide's Hot List.
Kennedy's additional film roles include “50/50,” opposite Seth Rogan and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (an official selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, for which it also received an Independent Spirit Award nomination); Andrew Niccol's “In Time,” opposite Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried and “Another Cinderella Story,” opposite Selena Gomez.
Past television credits include ABC's “V” and “Brothers and Sisters,” the CW's “Smallville,” Nickelodeon's “The Troop” and MTV Network's “Kaya” and “Valemont.”
