Pablo Schreiber was a Canadian actor whose most recognizable roles came on American television, often playing characters with a certain seediness to their nature. Despite film roles in productions as diverse as conspiracy thriller remake "The Manchurian Candidate" (2004), skateboard film "Lords of Dogtown" (2005) and Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008), his most recognizable parts came on the small screen, both as hot-headed Polish dock worker Nick Sobotka in HBO's "The Wire" (2002-08) and as villainous corrections officer George "Pornstache" Mendez in Netflix comedy-drama "Orange is the New Black" (2013-). Both Schreiber's father Tell and his half-brother Liev were actors, although he didn't meet his sibling until he was 16. Schreiber - who is named after the writer Pablo Neruda - was raised in British Columbia and then Seattle, attending the University of San Francisco with the intent of joining their basketball team and then Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, studying theatre at the latter. "The Wire" was one of Schreiber's earliest roles, and he attributed winning it to the fact that he hit on the casting director's assistant after he'd auditioned. He won a Tony Award for his role in "Awake and Sing!" on Broadway in 2006, while his other onscreen roles included parts in the films "Nights in Rodanthe" (2008) and Josh Radnor's indie comedy "Happythankyoumoreplease" (2010). His portrayal of the seedy corrections officer "Pornstache" on the cult favorite "Orange is the New Black" brought him to a wider audience for the first time in his career.
