Fox 'Under' Davitian spell
EmptyKen Davitian, who shot to prominence in the hit 2006 movie "Borat" as Borat's producer and nude-wrestling partner, has been cast in Fox's comedy "Starting Under."
"Under," from Warner Bros. TV, stars Bernie Mac as a guy who moves in with his son and starts working for him at a marketing firm. The project, from veteran comedy writer Bruce Helford, received a series commitment in early November (HR 11/9).
Davitian will play Ken, who, in the breakdown for the role, is described as "stout" and "gregarious." The part was originally written for a Polish accent.
Following the success of Fox's "Borat," Davitian landed a slew of movie roles, including parts in the upcoming "Get Smart."
