Biography

Ken Davitian began acting full time in the early 1990s and spent the majority of his career being typecast as a short, fat, bumbling, and sometimes sleazy character in low budget B-movies before gaining small guest spots on television in such series as the HBO sports comedy"Arli$$," the corrupt cop drama"The Shield," and the HBO hit drama"Six Feet Under. " However in 2006, he would land a role that would dramatically change his life and acting career forever. He auditioned for a supporting role in the Sacha Baron Cohen project "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." The part Davitian was going for was that of Azamat, the stout, rotund production assistant to the naïve, yet endearing, foreign reporter Borat. It was reported that during the audition, Davitian began reading lines in an Eastern dialect of Armenian, prompting a comically entertaining back-and-forth between he and Cohen. Cohen instantly demanded that Davitian be given the part of Azamat. Davitian's performance became somewhat of a cult, comedic classic and led Davitian to more roles in feature films like the parody"Meet the Spartans" and the spy comedy "Get Smart" during the late 2000s. Aside from acting, Davitian is also a small business owner. In 2003, Davitian opened up his own restaurant in Los Angeles, called The Dip, specializing in French dip sandwiches, which has been successful enough to open at a second location.
