Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Equipped with a distinctive face and vocal delivery, comedic character actor Brian George proved that he could sustain a long-lasting acting career despite being regularly typecast as a bumbling foreigner in many of his performances on television sitcoms and in movies.

He is also well known for several other small yet attention-grabbing roles, such as appearing on a 1997 episode of the syndicated "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine;" playing the UN Secretary in the Mike Meyers comedy "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" (1997); playing an irate store owner in the comedy/drama "Ghost World" (2001); and...

Although burdened by typecasting in Hollywood, George nevertheless knows how to work a scene to his advantage.
