Actor Kevin Weisman has consistently landed roles on television, in movies, and on stage, although his best-known role remains intrepid sidekick Marshall Flinkman on the hit action drama series "Alias. " Weisman began acting early, via local drama festivals in his native Los Angeles, and would later earn a B.A. from UCLA's School of Theater, Film and Television in addition to studying at New York City's Circle in the Square Theatre. By the early 1990s, Weisman was landing roles in such small indie movies as "Ollywoo," as well as a role on the short-lived television comedy "Pauly," starring then-popular comedian Pauly Shore. One-off appearances on established shows followed during the late 1990s and early 21st century before he landed the role on J.J. Abrams's hugely popular spy thriller "Alias." Appearing in over 100 episodes from 2001 through 2006, Weisman would also earn a pair of Teen Choice Award nominations for his work.
