Who is that Actor: Dileep Rao

March 25, 2011

Despite having a scant resume, actor Dileep Rao has made an impression on me with his double fisted pivotal roles in Inception as the Yusuf the chemist and some other kind of scientist in Avatar. But cooler than that, this cutie was on JEOPARDY!

Part 1

Part 2

Talking to folks at his alma mater!

Rao has such a warm charming presence. Would love to see him get his OWN cable dramedy, but in the meantime can they cast him on Grey’s or Leverage or Damages ASAP? Always good to see a fellow MFAer making moves. Now casting agents, hop to it!

    I knew he was in Drag Me To Hell, but didn’t know about Jeopardy! – MFAers represent!

    He was the least annoying part of Avatar! And he was great in Inception, as you point out. And his short, Fanboy, is great! Of course, it helps that I like Sam Raimi.

    “casting agents, hop to it” is right!
    I keep checking imdb to see what else he’s coming out with, but nothing yet! 😦
    We want more Dileep!
