Paul Ben-Victor

Biography

Paul Ben-Victor (born Paul Friedman on July 24, 1965) is an American actor. Ben-Victor was born in Brooklyn, New York to Leah Kornfeld, a playwright, and Victor Friedman. Having debuted on the small-screen in 1987 in the made-for-TV movie "Blood Vows of a Mafia Wife" and on an episode of "Cagney & Lacey," Ben-Victor has developed into a versatile actor equally comfortable playing malevolent heavies or humorous lightweights. Fifteen years after beginning his television career with bit parts, Ben-Victor found himself cast in important roles on HBO dramas "The Wire" and "Entourage". He also continued to hone his comic chops as evidenced by his 2006 appearance as Coach Lou on "My Name is Earl". His bittersweet portrayal of Moe Howard in the 2000 made-for-TV film "The Three Stooges" was one of the highlights of that film. Ben-Victor has been featured on many major television cop dramas like Monk and CSI, and also had a recurring role as two-bit con man Steve Richards on three episodes of NYPD Blue from 1994 to 1997. Ben-Victor has co-written stage plays with his mother. At least two of their plays have been staged in the Manhattan area, including "Club Soda" and "The Good Steno".
