Biography

Brian George was born on July 1st, 1952[1] in Jerusalem, Israel to an Indian mother and Iraqi father,[2] who are of the Jewish faith.[3] He grew up in London attending private schools before his family relocated to Toronto[4] when he was a teenager.[5] He was a student at the University of Toronto for a time, and gained an interest in theater, but never graduated. After leaving school, George co-founded a theater group called the Bear Theater Company with his friends from the University of Toronto.[6] It was an unsuccessful feat, though George did eventually train with the famed Second City comedy group in Toronto and learned his craft.[5]

After his first appearance on the Canadian show King of Kensington, George's career saw several gaps between roles until the early 1980s, when he relocated to Hollywood and landed several small bit parts on shows like the hit cop show Hill Street Blues, the blue-collar sitcom Roseanne and the prime-time soap opera Falcon Crest. Because of his ability to impersonate several different accents with ease, George also found plenty of work as a busy voice actor for commercials and children's animated programs, including supplying voices for Camp Candy, a show created by John Candy, with whom George had studied while at Second City. After a long-lasting portrayal of Pakistani restaurateur Babu Bhatt on Seinfield came to an end, George continued landing work on animated programs and the occasional part on a sitcom or movie. His roles in more prominent movies include the first Austin Powers film and the low-key indie Ghost World, starring a young Scarlett Johansson.[5] As a voice artist, he's been in various animated series such as The Spectacular Spider-Man and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, as well as the video games Dragon Age: Origins and Lord of the Rings: Conquest.[4] He has performed in countless other television sitcoms and dramas, among them Star Trek, Grey’s Anatomy, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and The Big Bang Theory. On stage, he appeared in the Kirk Douglas Theater’s opening production of Charles Mee’s A Perfect Wedding and in David Hare’s Stuff Happens at the Mark Taper Forum.[6]
