    His first TV acting job was playing a terrorist on 'NCIS.'
    His curly hair is flat-ironed for his 'Big Bang' role.
    He has a fear of heights and is claustrophobic.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He got his 'Big Bang' role just one year after graduating with a master's degree in fine arts.
    He married a Miss India (it must take acting skills to woo a beautiful woman AND convincingly portray a character socially awkward around females).
    He told US Weekly, 'Napping is the secret to my success.'
    He noted that though there are differences in American and Indian comedy, 'I think the bottom line is that getting slapped in the face is hilarious in every country.'
