Ian Gomez

Ian Gomez is a familiar face to film and television audiences. He starred as the popular character Javier on the series Felicity, as shameless self-promoter Larry Almada on The Drew Carey Show, and as Danny Sanchez on The Norm Show. He has also starred in such feature films as Connie and Carla, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, The Last Shot and My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Gomez's decision to focus on acting began when he was a member of the famed Second City comedy group, where he spent seven years. He made weekly appearances at Chicago's ImprovOlympics, developing his improvisational skills which he showcased when he guest-starred on the hit improv series, Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Other television credits include guest starring roles on George Lopez, Curb Your Enthusiasm, NYPD Blue and the television movie Get a Clue, among others.

A self-proclaimed Russian-Puerto Rican-Jewish Greek Orthodox born and raised in Manhattan, Gomez credits diversity as a key to his success. He is married to another Second City alum, actress Nia Vardolos, acclaimed for her feature film, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which was based on the couple's wedding and Gomez's introduction to this wife's family. He and his wife make their home in Los Angeles.
