He attended the prestigious USC School of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Despite that, he always wanted to study business along with a little acting. Once he shared that during his first acting gig he went on reading the script without any emotion. However, finally, the actor in him took over giving us the chance to experience the scared and witty ‘Dopindar.’
He made his first film appearance in Yusuf Sumer’s comedy film ‘Kaka Nirvana.’ After that, he continued doing films but caught his major break in the first movie of Deadpool franchise. He also appeared in the 2016 movie ‘Ghostbusters.’ Since then he has appeared in 17 movies.
The small screen journey
Though he began his small screen journey in 2011, the big break came two years later when he was cast in Amazon studio’s original series ‘Betas.’ Till now he has acted in more than 20 TV series with guest appearances in some. Actually, he made a name for himself with his small screen acting even before he got recognition for his role in the silver screen. Presently, he is in the cast of TV series ‘Miracle Workers’ along with ‘Harry Potter’ famed Daniel Redcliff.
The ladder of success
He was signed by CAA, one of Hollywood’s top agencies for actors. They have famous clients including Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney, Lupita Nyong’o, and Priyanka Chopra.

Some photos from last night, a night I won’t soon forget. Here’s what I’ll say about this movie, if you liked the first one you are in for a TREAT. DP 2 is funnier, raunchier, bloodier and all of it is bursting with heart. For reals, @vancityreynolds will make you cry. Avoid spoilers at all costs and make sure to wear your brown pants @deadpoolmovie
