Brody Hutzler made his television acting debut in an episode of “Saved by the Bell: The New Class,” a spin off of NBC's “Saved by the Bell,” called “Boundaries” (1995), where he played date rapist Craig. His venture into the soap opera realm began in the following year when he landed the role of Zachary Smith on the long running but now defunct drama “Guiding Light” (CBS, 1952-2009), created by Irna Phillips. He stayed with the show until 1997.

In February 1999, Hutzler made a guest appearance as Darren in “The Game Show,” an episode of the syndicated teen sitcom “Malibu, CA.,” which was produced by “Saved by the Bell” creator Peter Engel.

Bell and Lee Philip Bell.  He appeared on the show between 1999 and 2004.

Entering the new millennium, Hutzler landed guest spots in The WB series hit “Charmed” (2000) and the Fox legal dramedy series “Ally McBeal” (2000), where he respectively played Max and Chris Melnick. The same year, he played Billy Bastion in the pilot of the NBC short lived prime time soap “Titans,” starring Casper Van Dien and Yasmine Bleeth. During 2001-2002, Hutzler had a recurring role as Landok on the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” spin-off, “Angel,” which ran on The WB from 1999 to 2004.

The Alaska native performer branched out into the big screen when he got the small role of Grant on the Reese Witherspoon comedy vehicle “Legally Blonde” (2001).
