Brian George (Hebrew: בריאן ג'ורג'‎; born July 13, 1952) is a British-Israeli actor and voice actor for Indian accents, who typically plays guest roles for characters of South Asian descent. Perhaps his most famous role is as Pakistani restaurateur Babu Bhatt on Seinfeld or as the New Delhi gynecologist father of Rajesh Koothrappali on The Big Bang Theory. George was born in Jerusalem, Israel, to Jewish parents of Iraqi descent who had immigrated to Israel from India. His mother was born in India and his father was born in Lebanon but raised in Bombay. A year after his birth, the family moved from Israel to London, and then to Toronto, Ontario in 1966. George is the youngest of four siblings. He attended an all-boys school in London, but made the switch to a public co-ed high school when the family moved to Toronto. He attended the University of Toronto, where he was active in the university's theater productions. George left before graduation and formed a theater group; unsuccessful, he moved on to join The Second City, where he trained with John Candy, among others. George appeared as a United Nations secretary on Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
