was born in Israel and raised in England and Canada, by parents who were Indian- born but were, in reality, Middle Eastern. This has left him with the unfortunate impediment of having no accent of his own. As a result, he has spent his career playing a wide variety of roles trying to find his voice. After a stellar start at the University of Toronto performing in Mediaeval mystery plays (in which he was startled to discover that the mysteries didn't require him to play a Mediaeval Columbo) he began his professional career at Toronto's Second City alongside John Candy
, Catherine O'Hara
and Martin Short
. Soon they were nowhere to be seen. Films include GHOST WORLD, BUBBLE BOY, KEEPING THE FAITH, TOUCH OF PINK, ROBIN HOOD
(MEN IN TIGHTS) and, of course, EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH. On television he has been seen on SEINFELD, STAR TREK (DS9 and VOYAGER), and the incredibly short-lived REGULAR JOE with Daniel Stern and Judd Hirsch. Currently he can be seen regularly on TNT's smash summer hit 'SAVED' (with Tom Everett Scott) as well as on USA's smash summer hit 'SO NOTORIOUS' (with Tori Spelling). He has lent his voice to countless cartoons for Warner Bros., Disney and DreamWorks, among others. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children and, in the never ending quest to find his voice, has taken up Mime.
