Cassidy was born in Portland, Oregon. He graduated from La Salle High School in Milwaukie, Oregon, in 2001, and graduated from the Two-Year Conservatory program at The New Actors Workshop in New York City in 2003.
Cassidy is perhaps best known for his role as Zach Stevens throughout the second season of the television series The O.C.; his character had an on-again/off-again relationship with Summer Roberts. Cassidy also has a role in the movie Zoom.
Cassidy joined the cast of Smallville, a television show based on the DC Comics' superhero Superman, in the series' seventh season, starring as the new editor of the Daily Planet, Grant Gabriel, a love interest of Lois Lane. In truth, he was Julian Luthor, the cloned and aged brother of Lex. In the episode "Persona," Cassidy's character was shot dead, marking the end of his character's saga. Cassidy later returned to the Superman franchise portraying Jimmy Olsen in the 2016 film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
