Biography by Nathan Southern

With his rotund build and Eastern-European looks, Armenian-American player Ken Davitian seemed tailor-made for character roles. For the majority of his first decade onscreen, however, Davitian appeared in fairly lackluster movies, such as Talkin' Dirty After Dark (1991), Bikini Summer (1991), Sexual Intent (1994), and The Silence of the Hams (1994). His fate changed just a bit around the turn of the millennium -- first on the small screen, with guest appearances in such blockbuster series as ER and Gilmore Girls, and then cinematically, when Borat (2006) creators brought him on board that mockumentary farce as Azamat Bagatov, Borat Sagdiyev's (Sacha Baron Cohen) devoted producer (who performs a rather deviant and embarrassing act in a hotel room). Not long after, the producers of the 2008 big-screen vehicle Get Smart (based on the popular 1960s TV spy comedy) tapped Davitian for a choice role in that movie.
