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. George started out appearing in small parts on television shows like "King of Kensington" (CBS, 1975-1980) and doing voice work on animated kid shows such as "M.A.S.K." (USA Network, 1985-86) for over a decade. It was steady work, but he finally landed his first real memorable role playing Babu, an immigrant restaurant owner who entrusts his livelihood and U.S. residency to Jerry Seinfeld, and pays the consequences for doing so, on the iconic sitcom "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998). The character was a minor one overall, but George's impeccable comedic timing and presence helped him become a fan favorite. 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 for appearing as the character Raj's father on the all-things-geek sitcom "The Big Bang Theory" (CBS, 2007- ). Although burdened by typecasting in Hollywood, George nevertheless knows how to work a scene to his advantage.
