Troy Garity was born in Los Angeles, California, to actress/activist Jane Fonda and activist/politician Tom Hayden. He grew up in Santa Monica.
His parents named him for the Vietnamese resistance leader Nguyen Van Troi and the 19th-century Irish Fenian Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa.

He made an uncredited appearance in the film "On Golden Pond" (1981), trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and became a member of the Academy Repertory Company, performing in a number of stage productions.
Garity has appeared in numerous film productions. He played his father in the film, "Steal This Movie" (2000) based on the life of Yippie founder Abbie Hoffman. His portrayal of Isaac Rosenberg in the film "Barbershop" (2002) proved to be his breakout role, and he reprised it in "Barbershop 2: Back in Business" (2004). He also starred as Harvey in the Danny Boyle/Alex Garland film, "Sunshine" (2007) and as the tormented survivor of a tragic family accident in "Lake City" (2008).
