Sabella co-starred with Nathan Lane in the DreamWorks comedy feature film Mousehunt and with Kevin Kline in In and Out. Sabella also lent his voice to the character of Pumbaa in Disney's animated hit film The Lion King, working alongside Nathan Lane, who voiced the role of Timon. The two initially auditioned to play hyenas in the film but were so funny together, the directors decided to make them the hapless heroes, who team up with young lion cub Simba and offer their cockeyed guidance to the troubled feline.
Sabella has had guest-starring roles on many television series including Seinfeld, Mad About You and A Different World.
ENCORE! ENCORE! is a Grub Street Production in association with Paramount Network Television and is filmed before a studio audience at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood. The Paramount Television Group is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc.
