Did anybody see the weakest link episode last year when the guest stars on Seinfeld were the contestants?

I looked at Brian George, the actor who played Babu Bhatt and I was surprised to find that we is an American from Brooklyn!

I have to say, Brian George can do great accents, but I really thought in real life that he was truly Pakistani.

It's weird that he looks and does a great Pakistani accent, but he's American.

They must have had a lot of people audition for that role.

Just because he was born in America doesn't mean he isn't of Pakistani descent, and I bet he is Wink

The actor also does an Indian/Pakistani accent as a bartender in the movie "Keeping the Faith". Check it out. Quite funny!

Yeah, the guy who plays Poppy also speaks with an American accent too.

Some people are just good at doing accents.

He is definitely of Pakistani decent or at least some nearby country (like India). That accent isn't hard to do for Pakistanis and Indians- and it is more stereotypical than the truth.
