Underappreciated Actor of Another Color #29: Maulik Pancholy
I really can't take my eyes of Mr. Thang here. Born in 1974, he's an American actor/director of East Indian descent and utterly adorable. He's also on 30 Rock, The Sopranos, had a stint on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, along with an extensive stage career.
Maulik Pancholy took his acting studies very seriously. In 1991, he graduated from Berkeley Prep in Florida, and in 1995 he got a BA in theatre from Northwestern University. On top of that, he's attended the Yale School of Drama. As for his acting career, he's stayed quite busy overall.
It's hard to believe he's already 37, but then again, he's a strict vegetarian, so that explains a lot. Isn't he just too cute?
