”I feel like I’m getting to work on two of the best comedies on television right now,” says Maulik Pancholy. Indeed, with recurring gigs on 30 Rock and Weeds, the 33-year-old Yale Drama School grad is not exaggerating (Weeds returns in August). Can’t remember where you’ve seen his face? Keep reading.

30 ROCK (2006-?)
As Alec Baldwin’s assistant, Pancholy says his character ”alternates between being terrified and loyal.”

For an episode this season, ”I was Dr. Gupte, Johnny Sack’s overworked, over-it-all prison doctor.”

WEEDS (2005-?)
Sanjay is a timid college pot dealer with a ”crazy little crush” on Mary-Louise Parker’s character.

”I played one of two comics who were brought in to make Valerie’s [Lisa Kudrow] sitcom funnier.”

HITCH (2005)
As Will Smith’s excitable doorman, ”I find out that he’s the date doctor and I ask him to hook me up.”
