Seth Green

Now Way Less Jewish

10/20/2011 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020_seth_green_yam_exSeth Green is now only vaguely Jewish, because a judge has officially dropped "Gesshel" from his name.

TMZ obtained the judge's order -- issued today in L.A. County Superior Court -- which makes it official -- He's now legally known just as Seth Green.

The "Robot Chicken" producer -- formerly known as Seth Benjamin Gesshel-Green -- made the change "to reflect my professional stage name."

He's made it in Hollywood, so he no longer needs to let the Jews in charge know that he's Jewish and should be afforded the special priviliges reserved for the Jewish who are trying to break into Hollywood. I did so miss Oz on Buffy!!

Fred Astaire spent his whole life legally being Frederick Austerlitz. Why does your real name have to reflect your stage name?

He's always going to be Seth and Jewish. It's no big deal. Stay funny though.

His last name was originally a hyphenated form of his mother's maiden name & his father's surname.

I wonder what kind of relationship he has with his mother to take the legal step to 'lose' her name.

Sounds more like a publicity stunt than anything else. Needing a little attention, Seth?

There must be another reason than simply "reflecting his stage name". Bob Dylan and many other Jews never gave up on their real name even though they had a stage name.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Way to go. You & your family were the only ones who knew anyway, & so what if they weren't?

Boruch ato GESSHEL!
