Tomer Sisley was a bit of a liar. The multiethnic actor and humorist drew massive acclaim for a stand-up routine in which he joked his mother was Jewish and his father was Arabic. Though only half true - his parents were both Israeli - the joke's success brought his career to new heights. After debuting on the TV series "Highlander" (TF1, 1992-98) and in the romantic comedy "Alliance cherche doigt" (1997), Sisley won the 2003 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and established himself as one of France's top talents. His love of adrenaline-pumping sports (he participated in numerous horse-jumping competitions and was a licensed helicopter pilot) proved useful in "The Heir Apparent: Largo Winch" (2008), which featured the kind of action set pieces typically found in a James Bond film. After appearing in the 2011 sequel "The Burma Conspiracy," Sisley took on a darker role as a crooked cop in "Sleepless Night" (2011), and made his American debut with a small but memorable part in "We're the Millers" (2013). Tomer Sisley didn't look like anyone else, so he wasn't going to act like anyone else, either.
